I GET BOOTED OFF THE WIRELESS NETWORK AFTER 3O MINUTES OR SO
I'VE HAD THIS ROUTER FOR OVER A YEAR NOW AND IT IS STARTING TO GIVE ME PROBLEMS...AFTER ABOUT 30 MIN OR SO THE LITTLE INTERNET LIGHT GOES FROM STEADY TO FLASHING ON THE ROUTER AND I'M BOOTED OFF THE INTERNET...IS IT TIME FOR ME TO BUY A NEW ONE??
Re: I GET BOOTED OFF THE WIRELESS NETWORK AFTER 3O...
I've had issues with similar routers from Belkin. About 1/2 of them will work normally again after you reflash the firmware of the device and 1/2 of them work the exact same (in that case I replace them with a Linksys router).
Hope this helps!

It is not the problem with the router. It is the problem with the wireless adapter on your computer. Open Network connections and look for Wireless network connection. If it is not there then open the Device Manager and look for Wireless network adapter under Network adapters. It seems that wireless adapter on your computer is not working or it is not detected by your computer. If you have external wireless adapter then unplug it and replug it.
make sure to know the network name and network key of your wireless connectivity. then try to sequential powercycle all the equipment. turn off laptop, router and modem. then one by one turn it back on, starting on the modem. make an interval of 3 minutes before turning on the router. then your laptop.
Try resetting the router. This WILL ERASE your current settings, wireless password, etc. But is likely to fix your problem.
On the back of your router there should be a "reset" button. You'll probably need a pen or something long and skinny to press the button with. Hold down Reset button for 5 seconds.
Give it a minute or two, then you should see the wireless network appear. It will be a different name then it was before, and you need to re-setup your router configuration, to change the network name and the wireless password.

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router is there any computer connected to the router ? If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer. Router set up page is the page where you can check all the wireless settings of the router.
Not a problem, you have to consider maybe other devices and or networks competing/interferring with your network. If you know how to enter the Linksys router menu I would 1. change the frequency the router operates on 2. change the channel the router will use 3. change the default password to something else besides the default.
All of the settings for your router out of the box are at default, wonder how many other people are running the same thing in your neighborhood? I always change from the default, you may also be receiving interference from devices using the same freq/channel as your router. Changing these will eliminate those possibilities.
Don't forget to encrypt your network, that is most important.
Is there a modem (cable or verizon) connected to your router; if so you might need to turn off your modem, wireless router and computer for five minutes. Then turn on the modem, wait 5 minutes, turn on the wireless router wait 5 minutes, and then boot your computer. Also, make sure your computer's network card is set to DHCP, which automatically assigns your computer an ip address from the wireless router.
Unplug the Router. Unplug the modem. Wait about 15-20 secs. Reconnect the modem. wait about a minute or until all the lights are solid on the display. Reconnect the Router. Wait about another minute until everything is given time to start up. Try connecting again.
If it still does that, it may be a problem with your computer that your trying to access with wirelessly.
My mother had that problem on one of her laptops, it turned out that her particular installation didn't support WPA or WEP incryption. I did a full reinstall and now it works.
If you want to avoid a full reinstall you can try uninstalling the wireless network card, then reinstalling it.(Make sure you go to your manufacturers web site first to download the proper driver for your model)
from what you say, it sounds as if you have your wired and wireless card connected at the same time.
This will confuse the router as it is trying to give two different ip addresses to the one pc, which it cannot do.
If you are using the wireless adapter, make sure you dissable the wired adapter as the router will continually look for the wired ip address while allocating your wireless adapter causing instability.
Next ensure you have a good clear signal from router to notebook as this can obviously cause problems.
Lastly ensure that the wireless cards TCP/IP properties are set to obtain ip address automatically, especially if your router is DHCP enabled to allocate ip addresses automatically.
