Re: Dropping Connection

This link indicates there may be an issue with hiding the SSID in the wireless router. A security item employed by some users. IF this is the case consider broadcasting the SSID and employing WEP or WPA encryption in the wireless configuration for both the router and the adapter cards to secure the wireless connections..

Hi Support team, I use Modem Motorola SB100 with Linksys WAP54G, and DLink Wireless G DWA USB Adapter to connect to Linksys WAP from my PCDesktop. Connection from the PC to Linksys is ok but can't...


You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Since getting a new Dell laptop and Linksys E1000 (also have HP desktop), my internet connection keeps dropping (no problems ever before)- sometimes I can stay online for 2-3 hours or it can go in 15...


we need to first figure out whether it the modem or the router which is dropping the connection.

Please connect one of your computer directly to the modem, by pass the router and access the internet. If the connection drops then its the modem which is dropping the connection and you need to contact your isp to check it.

If the internet works fine directly with the modem then its your router which is dropping the connection. To fix the router we can upgrade it firmware.

To upgrade the firmware please visit the link below;

Note; If you are not comfortable upgrade the firmware then don’t do it. If not done properly then it can damage your router.

My linksys WRT150N router won't recieve internet signal from my dsl modem. The router sends out a signal to my lap top, but no internet connection can be made.

Try connecting your laptop directly to the dsl modem to make sure that it is working correctly.
If the dsl modem is working correctly then:
1. Turn off the power on the router and dsl modem.
2. After about 2 minutes, turn on the dsl modem.
3. Wait another 2 minutes, then turn on the router.

Occasionally you need to do this to get them back in synch. If this doesn't work you may need to use the software utility to reconfigure the router.

My lap top connecting to my wireless system.

Your computer is not yet connected to the wireless network of the router. Also, make sure that your wireless computer has a wireless adapter installed on it. You may verify it on the Device Manager. If you're using a laptop with built in wireless adapter , make sure that the switch for the wireless connection is on so that it will detect the signal of the router.

Try configuring or verifying the wireless settings of the router first by following the steps on this link:**&p_li=&p_topview=1

After configuring or verifying the wireless settings of the router, connect your wireless computer by following the steps on this link:

If you cannot still connect wirelessly, let me know of the following:
- model number of the router
- operating system of the computer
- wireless adapter installed on the computer (built in or external)
- brand of wireless adapter installed
- wireless settings of the router (SSID, wireless security)

Problems with IP address


Possible three (3) solutions:
1. Purchase and install a PCI LAN card (NIC) inside your "old tower". Should not be that difficult using any available PCI slot. Most would be auto detect/install by Windows (XP) or should come with a driver CD;
2. Use a USB to Ethernet adapter/converter; and/or
3. Use static IP address for the tower Same IP add (+1 on the last digit, same Subnet Mask, Default Gateway and DNS (if any). Should you need additional information on this method you need to post back details of your modem (brand/model, normally in a sticker underneath) so we can determine if it will allow simultaneous connection on USB & LAN.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Wireless router installation

Please see my response to this question. Your university's connection is most probably a LAN connection, so you'd need to follow the instructions as if you had a cable internet connection (unlike DSL, a LAN connection and cable internet connection don't require authentication with the ISP).

Wireless connection

Has any machine ever successfully connected through your router to the internet wired or wireless?

If not the requirements of your ISP must be reviewed to assure the wan/modem side of your router is configured correctly. This will require at least your ISP (phone./cable company) name or preferably a link to his support web site to gather information.

The manufacturer's and model of your wireless router/access point and wireless adapters (computer if the wireless adapter is built-in) will also be required to acquire common copies of the manuals to facilitate the configuration of the devices.

IF you provide the necessary information in a comment to this problem we can continue to step toward the establishment of a wireless connectin to your laptop.
