Losing connection from the router

OK, weve had this router for about a year, the router is in the den and my computer is in my room, which is on the other side of the house, and for bout the past year ive always had low signal, but it worked just fine
however, recently i started losing signal on my computer, even tho the router and my computer r in the same places
i will turn my computer on and after ive been on the internet for about 2 minutes it will lose signal, then i click repair, and it works for about another 2 minutes, then i lose signal and have to press repair again, and after it happens about 5 times it will say it cant repair it, then the icon goes away, and i have to restart my computer to get back online
this is very frustrating so i would really appreciate it if someone could help me with this

You may have an IP address conflict with another machine. why don't you just plug the router into the computer to see if that solves your problem first. If it doesn't. you should contact your internet carrier. You can also try this: turn everything off, and unplug EVERYTHING for a few minutes. Plug the AC adapters back into the devices FIRST, then into the wall. this will often drain power and solve IP issues.

After one year of usage, my laptop is losing the connection with the router if used in a different room. why all of the sudden?


Try reseating the wireless card if you can get to it. (some are factory serviceable only) Also, there are one or two antenna wires connecting to the wireless card so while you have the unit open make sure these are tight as well. You might also check the power setting to see if the wireless card is running full power or if it has been changed to a lower power setting. Finally, wireless problems are frequently environmental. Have you added lots of wireless technology in the past year? Buy a new microwave or cordless phone recently? What about your neighbors? What OS are you using? Have you done any recent updates (or an upgrade) that might have changed a driversetting or updated the driver?

The computer operating on the wireless link loses its connection.


Power surge is one reason that could cause this problem. It would help if you will connect your router to a surge protector and not directly to the power outlet. You can also update the firmware of the router if it is possible.

My intenet connection is very slow due to my router



This mentions Linksys, but it relates to all routers

Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.

Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Cannot Network printers on FIOS system


If both computers are connected to the router. Try turning off the firewall on both computers first. normally its firewalls blocking file and printer sharing that block the connection.

Losing connection with WGR614 v6 router


Well, glad I found someone with the same problem, the answer will certianly surprise you.
The answer is cordless phones and satellite interent.
if you have cordless phones and/or satellite internet it will lose signal.
They run on the same frequency.
To fix it log into your router, goto wireless settings, then check the box for enable channel settings. You may have to reboot the router and PC.
Should help.
Good luck and have a happy new year.
