What's happening is that one of your computers is online and when the other computer is used to go online at the same time, it takes the internet connection away from the first computer.... this is a common problem.
Here is the solution.
1. Turn off all computers, router and modem and anything else on your network (printers, etc).
2. With an ethernet cable connected between the router and modem, TURN ON ONLY THE ROUTER and let it cycle up.
3. Turn on your MODEM and let it cycle up. If you do this procedure in this order, your modem will "find" your router first and your router can then assign addresses to all computers while maintaining the proper connection to the internet...
You should now be able to share internet without the drop out.
Keep a copy of this just in case your power goes out and you need to reset.

Connected to wifi but no internet connection


Wireless networks have become an increasingly popular way to access the Internet. Connecting to a wireless network allows you to browse the Internet without having to physically connect any cords to your computer.


Troubleshooting wireless connectivity can sometimes be confusing, because even if a wireless network is not able to bring you to any web pages, often your computer's wireless card will still connect to the wireless network that is being broadcast.


In other words, a wireless network will read "connected" even if it is not connected to the Internet.


Connect to a different wireless network. If there is an alternate wireless network within range of your computer that you legally are able to use (a free public Wi-Fi rather than your neighbor's wireless network, for instance), try connecting to it and browsing the Internet.


If the same issue occurs on the alternate wireless network, you may have an issue with your computer's wireless card or with your Internet browser.


If you are able to connect to the alternate network but still not able to connect to your own, the problem is most likely localized to the wireless network you use at home.


Reset all devices.

The great majority of Internet connection issues can be resolved by a simple reset of all the devices in your home network.


Locate the power cords of both your modem and your wireless router and unplug them (if you use a modem/router combination, simply unplug its power cord) for a full 30 seconds.


Plug them back in and restart your computer.

Try to connect to the Internet using your wireless network after your computer has booted back up.


If the connection still fails, some further troubleshooting is required.

Bypass your wireless router.


If your computer's wireless card is connecting to your wireless network of choice yet you are still not able to access any websites, there may be a connection issue on either your modem or router.


The easiest way to locate the problem is to temporarily eliminate the router from the network. Locate the Ethernet cable that connects your modem to your router and unplug it from the router.


Plug the cable directly into one of the Ethernet ports on your computer and reset the modem in the manner described above.


Now try your Internet connection again. If there is still no Internet access, the problem is most likely with your modem or your computer; contact the technical support department of your Internet service provider (ISP) for further assistance.


If the modem goes online directly connected, your router is causing the problem and may need to be reconfigured. Contact the router manufacturer for further assistance.


Hope this helps

Yes. If you change the password of the wireless network then other 2 units will get disconnected from wireless network (if they are connected to the wireless network. If these 2 units are wired to the router then it does not make any change)
I will suggest you to change the wireless network name also if you are changing the wireless network password.
Try to connect to the new wireless network on all the computers and devices.

This can occur when the wireless adapter in the computer has trouble connecting to the wireless router. It may not get an IP address from the router or the wireless adapter encryption setting didn't get an the encryption authentication from the router.
In this case right click on the wireless adapter on the Task bar and click Repair. This will make the router re-issue an IP address and authenticate the adapter's encryption setting.

I wonder if your 'Active Wireless LAN' checkbox, found under 'Network > Wireless LAN > General Wireless LAN tab' is really checked. If so, and yet, your router doesn't broadcast, then I suppose its hardware is faulty.
Just my 2 cents... Carlos

Intermittent wireless connection can be caused by different factors, such as:

1. Wireless interference within the network. For best results, place your router:
- near the center of the area in which your computers will operate.
- in an elevated location such as a high shelf where the wirelessly connected computers have line-of-sight access (even if through walls).
- away from sources of interference, such as microwaves, and 2.4 GHz cordless phones.
- away from large metal surfaces.

2. Wireless settings on the router are still set to default. This may cause conflict with other Netgear routers within your network range.
- change the router's SSID or wireless network name.
- change the router's channel.
- enable wireless security on the router.

3. If the wireless connection is still unstable after performing the steps above, it is possible that the firmware is corrupted. Upgrade the router's firmware.

Everytime the phone rings my wireless connection goes away. I am also unable to secure this network. the model number is f5d8235 4


Your phone is using the same frequency as the wireless router (2.4GHz). It would be very difficult to prevent this unless you change:

1. Phone to corded system.
2. Change phone to cordless DECT (5.8GHz) system
3. Change network router from "G" series to "N" series.
