Hello,
There are a few things can make your wireless router to lose your connection. I like to start with the most simple things first. First clear Out any clutter on your browser. If your are using Internet explorer, go to tools click delete browsing history. When the box appears, clear out the first 3 things. History, Cookies, and temporary Internet files. Firefox, you click on tools, clear private internet files.
After than do a disk cleanup.
In start menu, go to all programs, accessories,system tools and select disk clean up. After this unplug Cable modem's electric cord, unplug the power to your wireless router, leave it unplugged for a couple of minutes, Then plug in your modem,router and restart your pc in that order. If that doesn't work you can always change you network name and WEP key, Hope this helps, also I was assuming you are using a PC and not Mac.

SOURCE: Failed to detect an internet connection

if you are having problems with your Linksys routers, reset the router and configure it again. In configuring the router, I suggest that you use the online tool that will automatically configure your router. It is similar with the setup cd but the online tool works better. The reason why the setup cd fails is that it has its own bugs. So just use the online tool. You can get the online tool on this website--www.linksys.com/easy.

Try to lower down the MTU of the router.

1. Access interface of your router
- Open internet explorer, on the address bar type (192.168.1.1)
- Once it prompts you for username and password , do not type anything on the username and type "admin"
2. under "Setup" , please look for "MTU". Set it to Auto and change the size to "1492"
3.Click on "Save Settings"

Please let me know if this helps.

I have to reset (unplug power, wait 10 secs, then plug back in) a lot to have internet access. The router is recognized and it says that I am connected, however it also says that I have no internet...


There are lots of factor why you have that kind of problem when it comes to your router. Before following the steps in this, check if your computer has a stable Internet connection when connected directly to your broadband modem. If you do not have a stable Internet connection with your modem, kindly contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

May I know what is the model and version of your Linksys router?

If you run into Intermittent Wired Connections Using a Router:

Step1: Enabling MTU on the Router

- Access the router's web-based setup page.

- Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.

- Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].
NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

- A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.

- NOTE: If the password of the router has been changed, type the router's new password in the Password field instead.

Step2: When the router's web-based setup page appears, look for MTU and set it to Manual. Enter the MTU value of your Internet connection in the Size field.

1468. The size DHCP or cable providers prefer.

1400. Maximum size for DSL.


Step3: Save settings.

===================================================================

If you run into Intermittent Wireless Connections Using a Router:


Check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks.


Regular wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

> Wireless interference within the network.

> Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.

> Firmware is corrupted.
===================================================================
NOTE: If the procedure does not work, needs to update the router

Internet becomes slow or stops working


Intermittent connection issues are very difficult for internet service providers to trouble shoot. The first step in trouble shooing any Intermittent connection problem is to look at the chain of equipment involved in flow of data from the internet service provider to the end user. In most homes the packets enter from the main cable line to the modem, than from the modem to the router, and finally from the router to you computer. So that means that the issue can be caused from the following equipment: main cable line, splitter, modem, router, or the Ethernet / wireless card of the PC. Since we know that the connection is being dropped at or before the modem I recommend contacting the internet service provider and demand a service call to swap the modem and check the pole. Your issue can be cause by some thing as simple as a bad splitter in the home or some thing as complicated at an issue at the pole. Most commonly this will turn out to be a bad modem.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

Just a thought: try to remove the group key renewal timeout (e.g. set it o 0 (zero)), in the router's wireless security settings.

Log into your router and change the channel and see if that helps. Failing that try rebooting the router to factory settings and deleting your connection from the laptop. Then start from scratch again...Hope this helps...Please let me no...

Internet Connects but disconnects suddenly


Who is your ISP?
It seems you are experiencing intermittent connection. Bypass the router and check if the same problem exist when connected directly to the modem. If the internet works fine with the modem.then you have to configure the router correctly.
