Satellite broadband dropping out - Ipstar Satellite modem - Netgear WGR614v7 Wireless Router

We have an ipstar Broadband satellite modem hooked up to a Netgear WGR614v7 wireless router and both our desktop and laptop computers drop out regularly. We have established that the modem is not the problem so it would appear the router is at fault. We have to go into the neatgear settings and "apply basic settings" each time. This resolves the problem for a short time, although there is no average time that it lasts, it can be from 5 mins to 2 hours and sometimes of the day worse than others.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I have exactly the same problem with a DLink DIR300 wireless router that drops out from my Ipstar satellite modem.

    We have an SMC router connected to our ipstar modem and have frequent lapses of communication. The diagnostic tools on my laptop refer to problems in acquiring the server address and I've been blaming them. Is it more likely to be the router at fault? The fault occurs at sart-up, half way through the day or any tome an happens at least twice a week. VERY ANNOYING IT IS TOO!

This issue has bothered me for some time.
The issue appears to be that some routers cannot handle DHCP life spans of more than a few hours.
Set your PCs with fixed IP addreses
( Note: Do not use as that is the IPStar modem address)

Option two is buy a Belken router - they work every time

Without knowing more about the network, I would suggest replacing the router and see if the problem goes away. Can you see other computers on the network when this problem is occurring? In other words, is the issue with the internet connection only? Or does all network communications cease to function?

We have 2 laptops going through this router and

First you need to verify that what kind of Internet connection you have from the satellite and what you need to do on the router so that it can communicate with the modem like MAC address cloning or changing the LAN IP Address. On the basis of that we will need to reconfigure the router back as it might happen due to a power outage or small network glitch the router might have lost the settings stored on it.

My Wireless internet card don't work

i think you are a little confused, your laptop may have a wireless card internally, but you need a wireless broadband or cable router for the wireless adapter to pick up a signal.

A fax modem cannot be wireless and cannot be broadband as you cannot fax using a broadband connection.

Assuming you have a broadband connection you will need a wireless modem/ router or roter connected to a broadband modem, not a standard 56k dialup modem as they aren't wireless or broadband.
