SOURCE: Router loses connection to Internet

Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.

  1. Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
  2. You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit .
  3. On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .
  4. The wireless channel on the Belkin router is set to Auto by defualt. Change the wireless to a static channel. Click Apply Changes .
  5. Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
Note: The wireless card in the computer will automatically detect the change in channel number on the router and will update the channel on the card.
CauseYou are not able to connect wirelessly mainly due to environmental interference. When the wireless channel is set to auto, the router will cycle to though channels when it detects significant interference. When the router changes channel the wireless connection will reset itself and disconnect all wireless clients connected to the router. SummaryWireless signals are prone to interference from cordless phones and electrical appliances (e.g., vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens). This is the reason wireless connections can drop. This article explains how to overcome frequent wireless disconnections by changing the channel number (frequency) on the Belkin router.

SOURCE: losing wireless connection after logging off

Log off? Not turn off?
Does the wireless work after you reboot?
If you log off but keep the computer powered it may be a power management issue.
Some network adapters have a setting to allow windows to turn them off to save power.
Go to the Device Manager, right click on the wireless adapter and select Properties.
Is there a Power Management tab? If so, click on it and remove the check mark from "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".

Wireless routers can operate at the same exact frequency as cordless phones. Try switching to another frequency in the router configuration.

My dodo wireless broadband is very slow


Not necessarily modems fault. How old is your PC and have you added anything lately that might slow it down. And have you run a virus scan lately?
Virus and worms can slow you down as well as not enough memory.

On Dell Inspiron 1501, at college dorm, wireless internet drops


Hi,
Your initial thoughts are correct, the more people using the connection at the same time the slower the connection becomes.
This a common problem with schools, colleges etc that share the same internet connection.
Your only way around this problem will be to purchase an internet dongle that plug into the USB ports at the side or back of your PC. Other than that your stuck with lagging net services until late at night or early morning.

I had a linksys "g" router hooked up to a wireless desktop and a PS3. i got about a 65-75% signal strength on both.my online gaming was fine, but i would start the matches late and sometimes have a...


The lag could be because of a latency between your router and the gaming servers you are connecting to. Not a whole lot you can do about that.
FYI, signal strength of 65-75% isn't bad at all and shouldn't have a significant impact on your wireless performance. Keep in mind that your internet connection is usually the bottleneck for performance. If your wireless runs at 54Mbps with 100% signal strength, when you lose signal, it reduces the performance of your wireless. For example, if you were to get to 40% signal strength, your performance could be reduced to only 11Mbps. While that is a drastic drop for your local LAN performance, 11Mbps is still faster than the vast majority of internet providers currently have, so your in-game performance shouldn't change, based on less signal strength or less bandwidth.
As for your "N" router, if you have a 5Ghz or 2.4Ghz cordless phone in the location where you installed the router, there is a chance that it is conflicting with that frequency. Since you don't have that problem on your "G" router, I can only deduce that if this is the problem, you have a 5Ghz phone, since "G" operates only at 2.4Ghz. If you still have the "N" router, disconnect the phone, re-install the "N" router and see if that fixes your problem. If it does, then you may want to either stick to the "G" router anyway or upgrade your phone to the newer "wireless friendly" 6Ghz phones.
