This problem has just started. My broadband provider's status reports no connection problems. I can be online for 2 minutes, longer or shorter, and then get cut off. I press for repair and it repairs for a time, and so on. My wireless modem router is the Belkin F5D7633-4. I think the sync light keeps flashing. I'm not sure which one it is as I can't find the manual. Thanks.

Connect with an ethernet cable and find out the IP Address,
subnet mask, gateway, and dns,

Intermittent connection issues are very difficult for internet service providers to trouble shoot. The first step in trouble shooing any Intermittent connection problem is to look at the chain of equipment involved in flow of data from the internet service provider to the end user. In most homes the packets enter from the main line to the modem, than from the modem to the router, and finally from the router to you computer. So that means that the issue can be caused from the following equipment: main cable line, splitter, modem, router, or the Ethernet / wireless card of the PC. The first step in trouble shooting this problem is to wait for the internet to drop off. As soon at this happens go to your modem. If the top 4 lights are not solid green then the the modem is losing it's connection to the internet. This can be cause by some thing as simple as a bad splitter in the home or some thing as complicated at an issue at the pole. If the modem drops the connection I would recommend contacting the internet service provider and demand a service call to swap the modem and check the pole. Now if when the connection drops the modem still has access than the issue is most likely with the router or PC. If more than one computer loses it's internet access than you can rule out the computer as the issue. At this point I would have to recommend bypassing your router for about 48 hours. If the issue does not return than you know the router was the source of the problem.

Hi make sure that all the connections are in proper state ,goto the network connections and check the status, also check the ip address by going to start->run-->cmd type ipconfig and it should give you the ip address and the default gateway.

who is your broadband provider? Is this cable or DSL connection? Setting up the router is done via http://192.168.1.1. Leave username blank, password is admin. If you have Cable ISP, then make sure you have "Automatic Configuration-DHCP" selected and MAC address Clone is enabled on Setup > MAC address Clone (click Clone, and Apply). If it's a DSL connection and your broadband provider gave you a username and password, select "PPPoE" for Internet Connecton Type, and enter in your DSL username and password. Next verify if your modem is communicating with the router by going to the Status page and by verifying that you have an Internet IP address. If none, wait for a few minutes and power cycle your modem and router.
Is this a wireless connection? If yes than most of the times the problem is that the signal is weak, try to put your Router/AP to a better place and see if you can connect, netstumbler can give you a hand in this, not sure if it's working under vista or not, but under xp it's perfect. My experience ist that what you need to have at least is 15 For SNR for your Router from the place where you are trying to connect. If it goes under 10 it will drop you down. Better SNR means stronger signal and that's all that matters with a simple wireless connection.
Have you accessed and setup your wireless part of the modem?
