Well, as I found out, wireless signals sent out by my router could be affected by things like microwave ovens and such. This would only happen if you had the channel finder set to auto. All I had to do was change it to a fuzz channel, such as 2. Simple, just hard to figure out.

My laptop is connected to linksys modem router wirelessly, model number WAG160N. The problem is it keeps being disconnected after 5 to 10mins or worst its only a matter or seconds that it will connect then...


make sure that you have no electronic devices especially cordless phones near the route(including baby monitors, halogen lamps etc)r. if that doesn't help, try changing the wireless connection setup from wi-fi protected setup to manual setup and change the wireless channel to 11.
you can do this by connecting your laptop to the router via an Ethernet cable first and then log on to the GUI page using the internet explorer.(default is 192.168.1.1). if you need more instructions regarding how to do this, please reply to this post.

Recently my D-link has lost its connectivity, oddly my Mac computer can pick up a wireless signal and access internet while any other wireless devices fail to acquire internet. I tried a cable connection...


Hello, Looks like your Mac might have connected to some other unsecured wireless network in your neighborhood. First connect any computer directly to your modem and check if you are able to go online. If the "internet" light is not lit on the router then there is no way your Mac can access internet through the wireless signals of that router. If you do not have internet connection through your modem then contact your internet service provider. If you are able to go online through your modem then perform the following steps..
1) Disconnect the power from both modem and router wait for a minute and connect the power back for modem first and after ten seconds connect the power for your router. Now once all the lights are stable check if you are able to go online through the router. 2) If the above step didn't work then you will have to reset and reconfigure your router. You will see a small reset button at the back of the router, press and hold it for 10 seconds and let go of it( while power is connected to the router) now disconnect the power from your router and connect it back after 10 seconds. Once you have done this you can reconfigure using the disk provided with the router by re-entering the ISP information. 3) Once this is done check if you have any firmware update to your router by logging on to the router vendor's website and entering your product details.
Hope this helped..!

Internet keeps getting disconnected.Computer needs rto restart


there is nothing to do with adapter... you need to check with some other laptop to isolate where is the issue...

if your laptop works fine without dropping connection then get a replacement for your belkin adapter...

if your laptop also looses connection, then you need to check your wireless router...

Wifi Router automatically disconnects from Internet.


It could be your router settings; OR it could be your ISP if your leave it 'idle' for very long.

My zyxel 660 hw works fine for 10 minutes, then starts disconnect


If the same thing is happening with the USB WIFI on the PC. This sounds like a problem with your PC rather than your router. Is your antivirus / spyware scanner up to date? If not up date it and run a full system scan. Also you should check to see if your Firewall is up to date, and that the wireless network you are connecting to is included in the safe zone area of your firewall.

1 more thing if you are using a Thrid party firewall (i.e. Norton, Zone Alarm, McAfee, Etc.) Make sure Windows Firewall is deactivated (in Conntrol Panel) having 2 firewalls on can lead to random problems

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.

Laptop keeps disconnecting then connecting every so often.


Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?

Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?

If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.

I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.
