    Much the same problem except with the Belkin f5d7632 and the internet connection drops every 1-2hrs. Only webpage access is lost, I can still dl torrents and use msn.
    I will try the mtu solution and see how it goes.

My Belkin F5D7230-4 router would drop connection on my wireless about every 3 minutes for a minute, then reconnect. I tried everything. Even changing the roaming agressiveness on the card to 1. I bought a netgear wgr614 v9 from Best Buy for 42.39 (including tax). This netgear works perfectly, it hasn't dropped the wireless connection since I plugged it in a week ago. Belkin sucks really bad. If I had known the ammount of stress I could relieve by getting rid of the Belkin F5D7230-4 and getting something else I HIGHLY recommend the netgear wgr614 v9 as it is cheap and it just works flawlessly. I'm going to OFFICE SPACE my Belkin router when it warms up outside.

Try to reduce the MTU of the router. If you're on DSL, set the MTU size to 1492, for Cable connection size is 1400 or 1463. You can do it on the router's admin page

My internet connects slows (211kbps) and drops off completely. AT&T says it's inside the home. Anyway to check the modem? I have unplugged and restarted it several times

More likely your telephone junction box outside your house has a bad wire connection - I've experienced the same problem before for my DSL. In addition, sometimes my phone line would go out as well - no dial tone. Listen to your phone and check if you have a dial tone when the Internet connection drops out - they may be associated.

My belkin N router always disconnects on the internet. im sure its not a modem issue coz when i try to restart my router its connected again to the internet. my belkin router model is f5d8233-4v3....

Disconnections are generally relative to the Internet Provider and Speed. If the speed drops, the router can disconnect and reboots. Just make certain you always update all drivers and especially if you are in Windows, keep up with current updates. Check your device drivers and do update from there also.

Connects to internet wireless then when surfing drops browser says not connected to internet. Computer says connected signal strength excellent

I presume your Number pad is Locked. To unlock it you should hold down theFn key then hit NumLk/F11 key.
If it is locked every time you start/restart then the num pad is activated in the bios. You should deactivate it in the bios. Press F2 during the startup POST (power on self test) to enter bios. There you should look for the alternative to deactivate the num pad(it is system dependent).

Drops connection once or twice a day.

Unplug the the direct cable/dsl modem that the router is connected to and the wireless router for aprox. 1 minute. Plug in the modem, allow the modem to reset and power recycle. Once the modem has reset completely,connect the modem to the wireless router. This should re sync the devices and resolve your issue.

Router drops connection

Its your bad luck that u purchased this router. Basically Its a very cheap product from china. It got hot & dies very soon. This is major problem with this model. Company suggesting the firmware upgrade but i didn't find a single solution with that. So the best answer is to replace it with another model.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

N1 Drops when Mac log onto network

OMG I have the exact same problem. I'll be using the router for a week on wifi just fine, then one time when my mac laptop comes out of sleep and tries to connect, the router drops its Wifi network (making it unjoinable for any device, not just my laptop) and I ultimately have to hard-restart it. SO frustrating, this is on v1 btw.

Dropping internet connection

check if this problem is with both wired and wireless computers, if not with the wired..only wireless has problems, check if you have any other wireless device operating in the same frequency of the router..if s, turn off other devices and check b.cos that me interfere your w/ls connection, if wired is having the same problem, connect modem straight to the pc and observe the connection, so that you can isolate problem..
