    Sometimes in the wireless settings, If your using say channel 13 and someone else within range runs another wireless router on chan 13, That can cause it to drop out.

    So, it sounds like you've never quite had the wireless router working since day one. Obviously if the problem persists, then you need to have the cable company swap out the wireless cable modem/router. You just have to be insistant on it. If they don't, then you have to look around and see if there are any devices around your home that could be affect the wireless cable mode frequency. Unless you have a Wireless N router, the frequency of your wireless cable modem is going to be in the 2.4Ghz frequency. This frequency can be affected by any number of devices such as cordless phones. Ensure that your wireless cable modem is not near the base station of your cordless phone or other possible electric devices. Let us know what happens after the cable company comes out again.

    What strength do you normally connect at? and what speed?

    Can you give us more information? What type of wireless router do you have? What type of wireless client are you using? Has this always happened or did it just start happening? If so, what things in your environment have changed?

Hi... If your running on XP, try theses simple steps:

1. Right-click the wireless icon on the taskbar (lower 2. Left-hand corner near time) and View available networks.

3. Left-click the "change advance settings"

4. A windows should pop up... now go to wireless tab and tick or bullet point "Let windows manage wireless connections"

5. Then click apply. Then try to connect to your wireles router again.

If the wireless tab doesn't appear, the click start and Run then type services.msc then click OK.

Double-click Wireless zero configuration and set it to automatic then press apply and click start to start the service. Then try to do the instructions again.

If you're running on Vista, disable the wireless software provided by your wireless card manufacturer to enable windows to manage wireless networks. Then try to connect to your router again.

Hope it helps!

My router (d-link WBR-1310) keeps dropping internet every 10-15

Try to access the configuration page of your router and look for channel number. Change the channel number to 11 or 13 whichever is available. It should work fine after that. If it still does not work, you can hard reset it by pressing the reset switch on the router. However, then, you will have to configure all the settings again.
