Re: lost internet connection

Power off the router by unplugging it. Also power off the DSL or cable router. Shut down the PC. Located on the back side of the router is a small reset button. Using a pen press and hold for ten seconds. Same for the DSL or cable. Power every thing back up starting with the DSL/cable, than the router and lastly the PC.

Suddenly stop working

First thing to do if you lost the internet connection on the router is to do a power cycle, you need to turn off the modem and router for a minute then after that power the modem back oin and wait for about 30 a minute then power the router back and check now if internet is already working, if still no internet with the router you need to press and hold the reset button of the router for 20 seconds and run again the setup CD for it....

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.

Loose connection

  1. Update the Firmware on your router.
  2. When you lose internet, look on your modem and make sure that no lights have gone out. (i.e. Cable) If this one goes out, it is your provider.

Lost internet connection

Change the calbe from the router to the dsl modem. Make sure you check labels on the rear of these devices to make sure the connections go where indicated. Is there and ethernet light on your modem. If that is on then the connection is made. Also check if the DSL modem works directly connected to the pc.
