Question about Zyxel P-2602HW Router (P2602HW)

1 Answer

Zyxel router disconnecting every 10-15 minutes!

I now have the Zyxel P-2602-HW-D1A router for a year or so. I first ignored this problem, but since I'm an hardcore-gaming-enthousiast, I am now COMPLETELY DONE with this problem.

The problem is that this router disconnects me every 10 to 15 minutes. This is really an issue. In games as Battlefield 2, you get disconnected after 2-5 seconds so you need to rejoin. This is a pain in the a**! In games like Left 4 Dead allow you to reconnect within 25 seconds, but much games don't have this.

I use an e-tech dongle (the zyxel is connected to the family pc, downstairs, while the pc I use is upstairs) and I'm 100% sure the e-tech is not the cause of this problem. Before i had this router, this problem wasnt there (though I had quite some lagg sometimes, but that was the internet connection).

What can I do to stop this? I'm litterally furious right now. I always cropped this problem away but I can't take it a second longer! I'm almost about to throw my whole pc out of the window!

My zyxel 660 hw works fine for 10 minutes, then starts disconnect

If the same thing is happening with the USB WIFI on the PC. This sounds like a problem with your PC rather than your router. Is your antivirus / spyware scanner up to date? If not up date it and run a full system scan. Also you should check to see if your Firewall is up to date, and that the wireless network you are connecting to is included in the safe zone area of your firewall.

1 more thing if you are using a Thrid party firewall (i.e. Norton, Zone Alarm, McAfee, Etc.) Make sure Windows Firewall is deactivated (in Conntrol Panel) having 2 firewalls on can lead to random problems
