I have a had a couple of cisco routers before. Each one I have been running in the same problem. When I leave it on over night to download, the next day the router is not working and I have to do a power cycle. Is there a way to fix this problem?

Routers will be disconnected from the internet if it detected idle time, and the only way for it to gain connection is by powercycling. To avoid getting disconnected when you leave your router downloading overnight, make sure your router is set to "always on". Configurations on the router can be done on its interface. The interface of the router can be pulled up by typing its default gateway in the address bar of a browser(eg. internet explorer, mozilla firefox etc). To get the default gateway of your device, pull up the command promt, then type ipconfig. The moment you hit enter, results will show the default gateway. Is there any more questions? Feel free to ask.

Leave the user name blank and enter the password admin ( admin once only ).

Try this.
If that doesn't work then search for the Cisco connect software on your main computer. You might have installed the cisco connect software on your main computer while installing your router.
If it is windows computer then cisco connect software might be under All Programs.
If is a MAC computer then cisco connect might be under Applications.

Open cisco connect software.
Click on router settings. You will see the router name and password. If you click on Advanced settings, it will open the setup page.

If nothing is working then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure it.
Remember once you reset the router, you will need to reconfigure it from the scratch.

Hello bennett205,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!
This routers issue is due to the CPU inside of it overheating one to many times. I have seen this happen more commonly to the Netgear brand of routers and WiFi routers.
I recommend that you run down to your local WalMart and pick up a Cisco router or WiFi router. They are fairly in-exspensive and very easy to setup.

Happy surfing!

You can access your router by entering in your internet address bar (www....)

Then leave the username field blank and enter admin as your password. You will get in the configuration menu and there's an assistant to configure your router.

go to internet explorer and type in the address bar and press Enter. leave the username blank and type admin in the password box and press Enter, now you will get the linksys page when you have all the information about the router.
But if you are able to connect to the internet using the same router then don't change any information on the router page.

I have a dell laptop and at least a couple of times an evening it just drops the wireless connection. No reasons.

Hi friend,

Please follow the link in order to upgrade the firmware of your router with the latest version.

Enter the model number and hardware version of your router. Downlad and save the latest versionof the firmware. Open web browser and type and hit enter. If you have not changed the router login password then try the default (type admin as password and leave the username blank).

Click Administration and then click Firmware. Click browse and select the file that you ave saved and hit upgrade. Once the upgrade is finish turn off the router for 30 seconds and switchit on again. Open web browser and type and hit enter.Enter the username and password.

Click Wireless and then click Advanced Wireless settings, fill the sections as mentioned:
Beacon Interval : 75
Fragmentation Threshold: 2306
RTS Threshold: 2307 and click save settings.

I hope this will resolve the issue.
