This is common with many manf. of routers. I have had the same issue. Are you running WEP? If so that's probably the culprit. For some reason, IEEE allowed more than one hash routine to get out there in the field, so sometimes if you have varying brands end-to-end, they can generate the hash-to-value a slight bit differently. So either a)Disable WEP b)Get netgear PCMCIA on laptop c)Move closer or change string in your WEP key to ONLY include 0-9 a-z d)Get a repeater. (Either netgear or brand of laptop WLAN NIC) Hope this helps. (I ended up disabling WEP as MAC filter and SSID turned off are sufficient enough for home use security.)

My acer aspire loses its signal randomly then comes back. Other laptops in the house are fine for connection. Any advice in simple terms appreciated as I don't know how to remove acer software for


Have had similar problems with two Gateways that are actually Acer--both two feet away on either side of each other: one or the other will lose connection--so not the units---if move the one not connecting closer (it is 50 feet with 3 walls between it and router) it will then pick up the wireless and work fine--I answer about 300 questions here each week so end up to avoid this in the mud/laundry room where I can depend on the signal and also have a smoke if I want.

May want to as a test move it closer to the router and see if same issue or not.

Hello, My roommate and I play World of Warcraft...


I would reset the router to default settings and use the good version of the firmware. OR delete your existing internet setup and then re-add it (do this if you didnt factory default your router before upgrading firmware)

Continually disconnects internet at random


You have WR160N router. This router has issues with the firmware.
Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

HP dv6139 loses Inet connection after 5 minutes (both ethernet & router)


Most probably it's the router's fault, if you have one. I've seen many cheap routers randomly loosing wireless connection with their computer clients. Try with another router. One possible solution: upgrade the router's firmware.

Router rebooting?


Try the following...
  1. Is your Power adaptor is loosely connected to the power socket?
  2. Check is the power adaptor produces more heat?
  3. Try to connect the device to the UPS if not..
If these are not the issue then there is possiblity of device failure.
