Router disconnects all wireless PC's every 5 mins for 10 secs
My wireless router disconnects all the wireless laptops in my house for about 10 seconds. Then all the computers reconnect and everything works fine again. This happens every five minutes or so. This is quite frustrating. I have tried turning the router off and on, and still no luck. I am running linux, my brother is running vista, and my mother is running XP home. This problem happens to ALL of us at the same time so I am guessing it is the router not us. Any ideas on what to do???

Login to the router via lan cable and set the timeout to a higher number. It might be called something different like Lease time or the like. Basically the router needs to release devices from time to time and it sounds like that setting is too high or too frequent might be a better way to word it.

Hi Joel. Welcome to FixYa. I'll be happy to help you resolve this problem. First off, have you tried a hard reset of your router? If not, try this first and let me know if this "unbricks" your router. A hard reset involves the following steps:
1. Disconnect the router from UTP cables (modem, ethernet to pc if hardwired but not the power cable).
2. Push reset button for 30 secs.
3. Without releasing reset button, disconnect power cord.
4. Hold the reset button for another 30 secs.
5. Replug the power cord.
6. Still hold the reset button for another 30 secs.
7. Release the reset button and give the router about 10 secs to resettle.
8. Disconnect power cord for another 10 secs and then reconnect.
9. The router should be in factory default settings now.
Let me know if this solution fixes your problem. If not, send me a comment with the end result and I'll be happy to troubleshoot some more to resolve this. Thanks for using FixYa!
make sure that you have no electronic devices especially cordless phones near the route(including baby monitors, halogen lamps etc)r. if that doesn't help, try changing the wireless connection setup from wi-fi protected setup to manual setup and change the wireless channel to 11.
you can do this by connecting your laptop to the router via an Ethernet cable first and then log on to the GUI page using the internet explorer.(default is 192.168.1.1). if you need more instructions regarding how to do this, please reply to this post.
first turn off router power off wait 10-15 sec then turn on you laptop and router on. then go to your control panel open it and go to connections select home base and the icon wireless should be green hope that helps you
If you have your router set-up with security enabled, you should try to re-set the router and then go back onto the routers "control panel" and re-setup the security. You can find out the correct way to reset the router and the correct address to enter into the browser to access the routers control panel by going to the router makers website and checking under Support
-- is this a brand new router?
-- who is your internet service provider?
-- what is the brand of your modem?
-- what is the operating system of your compter
you may try the basic connection:
-- while the router is powered on, reset the router for 10 secs
-- turn off your modem, router and computer
-- from the ethernet port of your modem, to the internet or wan port of your router
-- from one of the regular port of your router to the ethernet card of your computer
-- turn on the modem first, after 5 secs, turn on the router, another 5 sec turn on your pc and check if you can get online
There are two things involved in getting disconnected either your comp is getting disconnected or your router.
Computer getting disconnected connect your comp and router with ethernet cable if using wireless. Because at times it's not router but the wireless connectivity that gets loost.
Router getting disconnected...
Reset your router by holding the reset pin at the back of your router for 15 secs and lights will start flashing on router wait for 1 min you'll have router reset to default settings and now check that dsl or internet light on your router is flashing or static if flashing contact your isp issue with the line if static run the disc for router installation again and it'll remain connected after successful installation.
