Does your router and your landline phone is in one connection in with a splitter..
does connection failed whenever there's a call?
if so your splitter might be broken
or you must insert your phone line with the splitter, it might be in your connection set up..
or make sure your utp cable is stable and not in exposure area of people or pet where it might be touch or something..

hope this helps...

SOURCE: configure WRT300N wireless Router to connect internet using PPPoE

Often the nets and subnets are NOT the same.. ie The Fixed connection often uses 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1, however sometimes the wifi is setup 10.1.1.1, or 10.0.0.1 etc, have you checked this? Esentially tho ya router is an "Acess Point" and ya Lappy etc is ya "Client" the links below has a lot of tutorials to help have a look. http://portforward.com/routers.htm http://portforward.com/guides.htm

SOURCE: vista keeps losing internet connection

open device manager and  look at network adapters and right click on your device and go to properties and uncheck the power management box that allows pc to put device to sleep. this should resovle your problems since windows id defaulted to put device asleep when idle to save power. hope this helps.

SOURCE: cant connect to the internet with linksys wrt160nv2

if this is DSL connection then you have to configure your modem before you connect router

follow this
first disabled wireless on your modem/router

.1) Turn off DHCP on your modem/router I am assuming this is verizon westell
2. Configure the first VC port to Bridge-Bridge mode
3. Keep hitting "apply" in the windows until the 7500 reboots
4. Plug the "Internet" port on the linksys to one of the normal ethernet ports on the modem /router
5. Turn on the Netgear and wait for the green Internet light to go solid

good luck if this does not work provide more info on your setup

Hi,

we need to first figure out whether it the modem or the router which is dropping the connection.

Please connect one of your computer directly to the modem, by pass the router and access the internet. If the connection drops then its the modem which is dropping the connection and you need to contact your isp to check it.

If the internet works fine directly with the modem then its your router which is dropping the connection. To fix the router we can upgrade it firmware.

To upgrade the firmware please visit the link below;

Note; If you are not comfortable upgrade the firmware then don’t do it. If not done properly then it can damage your router.

After 30 min connected to the internet I am dropped from the internet. It says I am still connected to the Linksys router. It sems that It is timing out. What to do? Do I need to download new firmware?


Check the "keep alive" settings in your router, there is usually a choice between having it constantly "pinging" to keep the connection open, or letting it disconnect when it has been idle for awhile. Make sure it is set to "keep alive". The wording may be different but it will be something along these lines. Go in your browser to the wireless router's configuration page (i.e. http://192.168.1.1 ). Depending on what brand router you have this ip address will vary, consult your documentation for which number is used.

Internet keeps dropping off


On the router's Setup Page / User Interface, adjust the MTU to 1400 and choose the option Keep Alive. That's under SETUP tab.
