It's the Wireless Zero Configuration service that's doing it. Every 10 minutes or so, the WZC service goes out and tries to look for wireless networks. During this time, it can sometimes disconnect from your wireless network. Usually its brief, merely a few seconds, but long enough to kick you out of games, messaging clients, etc.

There is no easy way to resolve this other than stopping the WZC service after startup and successful connection to your wireless. Unfortunately, if you disable this service altogether, your computer will never connect to any wireless and when looking at the Wireless networks list, it'll mention the WZC service is disabled.

You will also need to re-enable this service everytime you take your PC to places where you'll be connecting to other wireless networks. To stop this service, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Start -> Run -> and type "services.msc" (without quotes)
  2. Scroll to the very bottom of the list
  3. Right click on the Wireless Zero Configuration and choose stop
Once it stops, continue working with your wireless network. If you no longer have disconnection problems every 10 minutes roughly, you've solved your problem. Repeat the above steps after every reboot as the service will be re-enabled after the computer restarts.

Cant connect to my dell inspiron 8100


I think you should check the wireless settings of your router first.
If your wireless network is secured then make sure that you have the correct wireless network key WEP / WPA .
If your router is too old then it will be better to upgrade the firmware of your Linksys router.

Are there firmware updates? My iPad is dropped from wireless intermittently.


im not really familiar with the ipad but my best guess is your wireless router signal strength is what is causing your ipad to drop. No firmware update is going to fix that. i would recommend downloading a wifi analizer from the app store to get a reading on your dbm (signal strength) from your router. the dbm scale will be 100 dbm(best) to -100dbm anything below like -50 dbm and you will start seeing disconnects.
I would either A. Invest in a wireless n standard router or buy a repeater to boost your signal.
Comment if you need additional assistance.

The router will just drop the connection with my laptop Dell inspiron 6400. I have replaced the wireless card in the laptop and the problem still occurs.


There could be several things that can cause this problem ranging from weak signal, electrical interference, to clashes with other wireless routers.

Intermittent connection from router


Have you checked with your ISP on the strength and consistency of the signal before troubleshooting the router. If you're having problems with the wired connection, I would first try connecting directly to the modem to make sure you have a strong signal.
Let me know if you have a strong signal directly from the modem. We can troubleshoot the wireless router once we ensure the signal from the modem is good.
Thanks.

Trendnet router on 2nd floor gives poor signal on first floor.


The Trendnet router did not get very many if any good reviews. I would say any router is better than what you have. Belkin is ok but on the low end of OK.

Spend some time on CNet, PCMagazine, Anandtech, Tom's Hardware and look at some of the reviews they have done.

Good luck

Computer connects to router but not to the internet


This seems to me at first look to be a problem with your ISP not accepting the credentials for your connection. I presume you tried restarting everything after resetting the router, but resetting it has erased your ISP login and password.

Dell Inspiron 1501 cant find Belkin 2000


Do you mean wired or wireless?
If wireless, can you detect other wireless signal or ssid? If not, make sure your wireless is enabled. If yes, make sure the wireless light is lit on your router.
