There are three things that could be wrong that result in losing connection

1. Firmware fault
2. ISP fault
3. network card fault

the most probable is firmware fault
you should upgrade to latest firmware
links, if you have version 1 http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/firmware/WRT160N_1.02.2_US_code.bin
if you have version 2 http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/firmware/WRT160Nv2_v2.0.03.007_US_code.bin
if you have version 3 http://downloads.linksysbycisco.com/downloads/WRT160Nv3_3_0_02_003.bin

Just go to http://192.168.1.1/
if it asks for user name and password
put
user name = admin
password = admin

click on the Administration tab. The firmware upgrade function is somewhere on a subtab. You'll see a browse button with which you select the firmware file you downloaded before. Once you press the Upgrade button (please only do it if you really want to upgrade the firmware!) the browser sends the selected firmware file to the router where it will be installed after the router reboots itself.

if its an ISP prob there is nothing you can do to fix it except call the ISP and ask them to fix it


If its network card problem i highly advise to buy a new one

Hello

It is most probably one of two problems. Either the ISP, or it is signal related. If it is not signal related, call your ISP. Really hope this can help.

Best regards

Connot connect to century link with wiresless


assuming you've connected previously without error REBOOT both your computer and your router. give a few minutes for your router to boot up, connect and start broadcasting the wifi. if your system doesn't connect after that, scan it for malware and spyware with reputable software

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....

Keep losing wireless network on laptop. completely disappears and can not find it to reconnect


Hi..
I was having the same issue with my notebook. I was losing connectivity to the internet at both home and office through my browsers and outlook consistantly after boot up for approximately 10 minutes. The only way to get more connectivity was to reboot my machine (ten more minutes). Emachines help desk was no help. Their fix all response was to format the harddrive and start over. What I did to fix it was:

Start
Control Panel
Network Connections
There, I disabled the wireless network connection and waited for the hourglass to go away. Then reenabled it and have had wireless connectivity since.



Good Luck ;-)

I am losing satelite connection frequently. Sometime for a few seconds and sometime for up to ten minutes


Hello jacke328,

In order to maintain satellite connection your GPS receiver needs a clear view of the sky. If you are operating the GPS in areas where the view of the sky is limited due to tall buildings, hills and mountains, or dense forest, your GPS is liable to lose signal from one or more satellites and this can impact the receiver's ability to determine your current location.

If you are operating the GPS inside your vehicle an external antenna may help significantly. The body of the vehicle can act as a shield, blocking the GPS's ability to receive satellite signals. This is why most manufacturers recommend installing GPS receivers on the dashboard with a clear view of the windshield as this maximizes the amount of visible sky. Installing an external antenna on the vehicle and connecting this to the GPS can help significantly, however.

Depending on the geography of where you are operating the GPS, you may have to live with an occasional loss of connectivity. With proper mounting you can minimize this, however.

Best Regards
Ken
