Question about Computers & Internet
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.
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 192.168.5.100 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?
