Re: MY ROUTER KEEPS LOSING CONNECTION
Hello fieldon68, & to all the rest with the same problem.
There are many things that could be wrong, but intermittant discounnects sounds very much like a interverance from another wireless device. (ie phone, cell, etc)
To try to address this issue, follow the steps below: Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.
Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit ( unless you created a password, then enter that).
On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .
The wireless channel on the Belkin router is set to Auto by defualt. Change the wireless to a static channel. Click Apply Changes .
Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
Note: The wireless card in the computer will automatically detect the change in channel number on the router and will update the channel on the card.
CauseYou get disconnected wirelessly mainly due to an environmental interference. When the wireless channel is set to auto, the router will cycle to though channels when it detects significant interference. When the router changes channel the wireless connection will reset itself and disconnect all wireless clients connected to the router. Wireless signals are prone to interference from cordless phones and electrical appliances (e.g., vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens). This is one of the more popular reasons Belkin wireless connections can drop.
P.S. Please leave a rating.
Mine has the same issue, I would really like to know how to solve this!
I have a Desktop computer connected by cable internet, with the router hooked up for my laptop. The laptop has internet and is fine but the desktop keeps disconnecting and running slow. It's very fraustrating.

CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.
have you tried downloading the latest firmware?
you can do so by going to
click on support resources.
select your router model and download the latest firmware.
I have had similar problems with my home wireless connections for years, across several different brands of routers. By far the quickest solution that I've found is to simply reboot the router; either using the command interface from a computer connected via ethernet; or by unplugging it, waiting 30 seconds, and reconnecting the power.
