Slow Internet/Keeps Cutting Out


Reset your router using the red reset button in back of the router. Let everything startup and test it. If the problem persists, then you might have to call your ISP or replace the router itself.

So, If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless try with the following steps,
1.)Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.

6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from www.ScanMySpeed.Com before and after following these steps.

1. RESET both the modem and router by unplugging them from the wall outlet for 30 seconds.
2. Power them ON again, and after 2 minutes check the connection.
3. If not OK, connect a computer directly to the modem, reset the modem and check the connection after 2 minutes.
4. If not OK, check your cables and if these are OK, call your ISP for your status and line quality.
5. IF OK, check the Powersupply of the router.

Wlan light keeps coming on and off internet connection is unstable


wlan light going on and off is normal that means that there is activity between router and wireless device (computer, smartphone, etc) If you have intermitternt connectivity try this. Unplug router from power, then internet modem from power as well, wait about 30 seconds, reconnect modem, wait about a minute and lastly reconnect router. If this does not solve the issue you may want to call your internet service provider.

My router is on but it seems so slow. i keep getting randomly disconnected, the connection is terrible and even when i turn it off for 30 seconds and on again it stills acts up, any ideas?


ping your router with a packet length strength. To do the ping test, go to Start-Run and type CMD and hit enter. Then, in the Command Prompt Window type in the following

ping 192.168.0.1 -l 30000 9

I suppose the 192.168.0.1 will be the default gateway of your router. To check which is the default gateway of your router you can double click the connection icon on your PC, and click the Support tab. You'll see the degault gateway IP third on the list.

Now, if it pings back all three times with times below 100ms then ok. If it doesnt then reduce the ping length to 20000, if again you have losses then reduce it again to 10000. If the ping loses packets and response is slow you'll probably need a new power cord.
If the pinging is ok at 30k then you'll probably need to change the LAN cable that leads from your internet connection onto the wifi router.
To verify this, run this command

ping google.com -l 10000 and see if you have any losses. If you do have losses, then do a ping like this

ping google.com -l 32000 if you again have losses in the ping then you'll need to change your LAN cable because the 32kb packet is almost a standard size of packets and it should have no problems to get through the router, unless the LAN cable is bad.

Hope this helps. Please vote a Thumbs Up if you found this useful and informative.

Loss of internet connection


Please google "network magic" from cisco. Get it ... free for a limited time then they want $ or ... keep using the limited version for free.

I use the paid pro version to manage my network and I love it.

The program is easy to use and will perform all the functions you will need to stay on the WWW. Did I mention it is SIMPLE to use yet it is complete and comprehensive. It will help with wireless security too, if that is an issue.

Constantly losing connection


A wireless router if set at enable DHCP will always asign an IP address to each pc, and keep it, it will not alter until the next time your connected, and even if the first pc that you connected with, first next time, it will get the same ip address allocation. The solution may be that your router is set to disconnect from the internet after a period of innactivity. Go into router settings and look for something similair to (Idle connection-Never).
