Wireless Router Randomly Disconnects

So i recently had trouble with my laptop finding my wireless router signal, and now that i finally got it working, i have stumbled across a brand new problem. It seems that now that i got my wireless working, the router would randomly kick me off the internet, my girlfriend never had a problem with this before. since it's her router, and it only started happening when i finally got my HP laptop on the network (she only has mac computers) i can't help but feel that i had sumthing to do with it. Anyways, so everytime i connect to the internet, i can stay on it for anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours or so, but eventually the internet would kick us off where none of my browsers would work.

I would then check the status of my internet, and it would say the signal is still excellent, and whatever i was downloading (ie. Bittorrent) would still be downloadin and uploading at an excellent rate...but the internet would stop working, and eventually i would get kick off of messenger.

when i try to look at the messenger support, everything appears to be good, except for the key something and when i try to repair, the log says
"Failed to connect to the service. THis could be due to improper Proxy or firewall setting. Please review your proxy and firewall setting. Proxy settings can be accessed through windows live messenger options. "
i have no idea if this is the reason, but when i click repair, it wouldn't repair it.

So what i have discovered is that to get my internet working, i have to hard reset the router, and that'll instantly connect me back up to the internet, but kick me off again in 20 minutes, OR i can log onto the NEC Router website and refresh my router, and that'll make it work for an hour or so.

i just find it kind of weird becaues none of my internet'll connect to any websites, but when i goto my network option and pick aterm and log into website, it lets me get onto the router site...so...with that said..any idea why i keep getting booted out of my internet? please any help would be appreciated..

    the thing is i'm still fully connected to the internet when the internet goes...the only thing is my browser stops working, everything else is still going...none of my or my girlfriends computer's browsers work when this goes, but besides that, everything else works...maybe internet settings?

    The Router i'm using is a NEC Aterm router, my girlfriend was running 802.11a for her macbook, that was when i couldn't even detect it on my hp, i had to set it to 802.11g or 802.11g & b to get it to connect to my computer. I'm pretty sure my bittorrent continued downloadin for about 15 or 20 minutes after i was disconnected from the browser.

    I looked at the wireless connection when my browser goes, and everytime it says cannot connect to internet on my browser, the status for receiving is still anywhere from 15,000 to 45,000

    Browser doesn't recognized internet connection through wireless router. The problem is intermittent. I can work for hours with out a problem but then try to open a new tab or browser window to launch another site, when I get the File Not Found message. I know it is the router because if I swap out the new wireless with my old wired router, everything works beautifully for both my husband's and my computer (we even use different browsers). The wireless router we tried was Linksys. I guess it just goes to show you that wireless still has some challenges.

Hey man. I had the same problem. I had a program like BITTORRENT running and it would kick me off of the internet on all my computers including the online on my Xbox 360 although all of my torrent files would still be downloading perfectly. I realized that these files were completely using all of my bandwith up and it was taking absolutely every part of the bandwith up. Because of that, the internet was completely out of whack and I couldn't use the internet for anything on anything. So unless you want your internet to keep messing up, I would suggest deleting BITTORRENT man. I'm telling you, I did that and my internet works perfectly.

I am having this problem as well, however my connection goes from 56M down to 1M and I cant connect to anything. I previously thought it was my router but none of my other systems experience it. If you know someone with an external Wireless card I'd suggest trying that before purchasing one. I dont believe anyone can fix an internal wireless card that goes bad. Try downloading the latest drivers for your PC/LAPTOP's wireless device and reload it.

    Out of curiosity what type of router is it that you are using A/B/G/N? I have never heard of a router that only dropped browser support and still let you download. Sometimes those BITTORRENT downloaders dont reflect immediately that you have been disconnected (the program continues to search for peers with pieces of the file that you need and there is a small buffer). How long after your browser shutdown does your download continue?

We recently upgraded our iphones. Since then we are having truoble with our internet connection randomly disconnecting some of the devices being used.


If the WIFI security encryption for the WIFI password isn't in what's called "WPA2-ONLY", sometimes there will be random disconnects. By default, I think the encryption is "WPA+WPA2 mix mode" which can be the source of disconnects.

You will find this in your router's settings which you can access by navigating to what's called the default gateway IP in any web browser. Commonly, it is 192.168.0.1, but can be 192.168.1.1, or even 192.168.2.1. It will ask you for a username and password if you've done it correctly. It might say on the router what the username and password is, or you can find the default login credentials online for all common routers.

Login, then find some kind of "security" tab, maybe under wireless, or WLAN, or something like that. It will give you an encryption option for the wireless network and password, and choose the WPA2-ONLY option. Save or apply the settings, and your router will reset and hopefully you won't have any more disconnect issues.

My router disconnects all the time


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can 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 the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

I recently upgraded to a Belkin N wireless router. A Belkin Tech person helped me configure it at start up . But, It randomly disconnects, I unplug the router and plug back in and it works fine. What can I...


Open RSP by typing 192.168.2.1 on the Address Bar of internet Explorer

On the Left side click Channel and SSiD underneath Wireless

Change the Wireless Channel into 11 or 9

And if it is not working you may need to update the firmware of the router from www.belkin.com/support

Also make sure that there are no devices such as the base of a cordless Phone or a Microwave Oven is placed next to the router or the computer (its because it will cause a lot of interference )
