Idle timeout is configured with the command

exec-timeout 0 0

The value is in minutes and seconds. If you put in a value of 0 1 then it will time out after 1 second of time. Idle time is configured separately for console and vty connections. One option is to connect via the console port and then change the idle timeout on the vty connections. If you have no access to the console port then you have to type fast or paste the proper commands in. You can type out the following commands into a text editor

config t
line vty 0 4
exec-timeout 5 0
end

You would want to copy them into your clipboad before logging into the router. Once you get logged in and into enable mode, you can paste the clipboard into the terminal (check your terminal instructions to find out how). This should set your idle timeout value to 5 minutes.

Chain saw won't keep running


There are 2 adjusting screws, one is idle speed and the other is mixture. Adjust the idle screw until it keeps running. That may be all you need. But to check that the mixture is right turn the mixture screw, quarter turn at a time, keep count! until it flutters or speeds up. If it speeds up stop and adjust the idle back a quarter turn at a time until it runs without the blade turning.

Router disconnects computers from wifi requiring router reset


Go to settings and connection type and check maximum idle time is not highlighted! Sounds like it is timed to disconnect after a time limit from your description!

My new laptop keeps losing connection with my ZyXEL P-660HW-T1 V3 router. My old lap top worked fine, what could be the cuase?


The new laptops are not compatible with some of the older model routers.Try turning the power to the router for approximately 10 minutes,shut down your laptop before turning off the power to the router.once the router has been off for ten minutes,turn your laptop back on,as if you are "logging on",let your laptop be idle for about 20 minutes,giving your router time to "reboot" If this does not fix your problem,you'll have to replace your router with one that is more compatible....

Problem with the D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router: Keeps timing out on wireless and wired (PC) computers. Have had to unplug wireless router and turn modem off, then plug back in and turn modem back...


Connect to router with your browser and:

Check under Tools -> Time to confirm the router is synced to either the PC clock or a time server.
Check under Advanced - Filters (and firewall) to confirm the router is always on
Check under Home -> DHCP to confirm the lease time is set correctly

DI-524 does not maintain connection


Some ISPs are cutting connection after a set period of idle time to conserve users per router ratio. There are programs to "keep alive" connections (some router have this ability built-in also).

After 30 min connected to the internet I am dropped from the internet. It says I am still connected to the Linksys router. It sems that It is timing out. What to do? Do I need to download new firmware?


Check the "keep alive" settings in your router, there is usually a choice between having it constantly "pinging" to keep the connection open, or letting it disconnect when it has been idle for awhile. Make sure it is set to "keep alive". The wording may be different but it will be something along these lines. Go in your browser to the wireless router's configuration page (i.e. http://192.168.1.1 ). Depending on what brand router you have this ip address will vary, consult your documentation for which number is used.

Time Warner Cable won't identify Linksys WRV54G wireless router


If you can connect directly via your modem, then the line up to your house is fine. So no problem with your ISP.

Since you changed from cable to DSL, you might have to re-configure your router.
Open a web browser, type "192.168.1.1" in the address bar and log on to the web based router configuration page. (The default values are "admin" for username and "admin" for password)
Go to "Setup", choose "Basic" and review the entries there. You want to see it configured for "PPPoE".

Some DSL-based ISPs use PPPoE (Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet) to establish Internet connections. If you are connected to the Internet through a DSL line, check with your ISP to see if they use PPPoE.
If they do, you will have to enable PPPoE.
User Name and Password: enter the User Name and Password provided by your ISP.

Connect on Demand: Max Idle Time. You can configure the Router to cut the Internet connection after it has been inactive for a specified period of time (Max Idle Time). If your Internet connection has been terminated due to inactivity, Connect on Demand enables the router to automatically re-establish your connection as soon as you attempt to access the Internet again.
If you wish to activate Connect on Demand, click the radio button.

In the Max Idle Time field, enter the number of minutes you want to have elapsed before your Internet connection terminates.
Keep Alive Option: Redial Period. If you select this option, the router will periodically check your Internet connection. If you are disconnected, then the Router will automatically re-establish your connection. To use this option, click the radio button next to Keep Alive.
In the Redial Period field, you specify how often you want the Router to check the Internet connection. The default Redial Period is 30 seconds.
When you have finished making changes to the screen, click the Save Settings button to save the changes, or click the Cancel Changes button to undo your changes.

My internet keeps dropping out


possible reasons:

Dial up:
  • phone line problem.especially in wet weather,crackling on the line ,call the telco.
  • modem\router on its way out. connect directly to the modem and try it .
  • settings for idle time before disconect needs turning off, (set to 20 minute by default)in most cases.
  • if you have call waiting ,turn it off ,as it can kick you of the net when a call is trying to comes in.
if you use ADSL and/or wireless :
  • some of the above and
  • some USB dongle are prone to drop out,
  • try using a Lan cable
  • brick walls and other hard surfaces can interfere with the signal if you are away some distance from the wireless router.
  • cordless phones can cause problems, keep them away from the modem\wireless router and wireless dongle, or adapter in the pc/laptop
good luck with this and let me know how it goes
