Question about 2wire 1800HG Router (RG1800HG00)
I have a 2wire 1800HG Router it works fine but i keep loosing wireless connection the 3 lights are on which are power, broadband connection, and the last one that turns on as soon as a computer turns on i cant remember the name but anyways moving on... So, i could be using the internet and all of a sudden i cant load the next page i go to were the router is and all the lights are on, i open the WIRELESS NETWORK CONNECTION STATUS box and it says i have excellent connection its sending packets but its not receiving any.
I've tried refreshing the connection but then it tries to connect and nothing happens.
I've updated the drivers on my computer.
It detects other networks and can connect to them at the same time that this problem is happening so it cant be my computer, because after i connect to another near by network i try reconnecting to mine and nothing happens.
I've shut down my computer and it still cant connect.
The only way i can get connection again is by unplugging the 2wire's power cord for 10 seconds and plugging it back in but its frustrating after a while to loose connection and have to go and unplug it again.
Someone please HELP!
I'm running a windows XP with built in WiFi
the 2wire router is 1800HG i think
connected to the router are an X Box 360 and a desk top computer running windows Vista
they have no problem when the wireless goes down but when i want to get connection back i have to unplug the box and interrupt what every one is doing
It sounds to me like your wi-fi client might be affected by some sort of timeout or overload type kick. Is it just the PC or both the PC and the Xbox?
By "timeout" this could be your "IP Lease" that is too short (look in your ADSL PPP/PPOE configuration)
Otherwise would you be using any P2P software? If so you might want to look in the settings for something called MTU. Set this to something like 1500 then if that doesn't do it reduce it to 1492.
The only other thing I can think of is that your pc might be having authentication problems. Degrade your wi-fi security (go from WPA to WEP) and test to see if that makes any improvements.
