We got a netgear router when we went to Comcast. It worked fine on our old computer, but we got a new one & found the router would disconnect itself anywhere for once a week up to a couple times a day. We would have to unplug the router, plug it back in & wait for a few minutes. If anyone is having that problem, here is how we solved it per my brother in law's advice. Turn off your sleep mode. When the computer sleeps, then you push a key to wake it up, the router doesn't always catch that the computer is back on. If you don't know how to do this, go to Control Panel, then Power Options (hard to find if you have Windows 7), then there should be some sort of sleep option like Change When The Computer Sleeps. In there, change it to Never. It's okay if you have the monitor go off, but don't let the computer sleep. We haven't had the problems since we made this change.

SOURCE: connection problems

Check the "keep alive" settings in your router, there is usually a choice between having it constantly "pinging" to keep the connection open, or letting it disconnect when it has been idle for awhile. Make sure it is set to "keep alive". The wording may be different but it will be something along these lines. Go in your browser to the wireless router's configuration page (i.e. http://192.168.1.1 ). Depending on what brand router you have this ip address will vary, consult your documentation for which number is used.

SOURCE: I have 2 desk top computers hooked up to one

You have connected the LAN cable from the modem into the correct Internet port on the router.
This error message you got could mean you have a faulty cable. To test the cable, connect the cable from the modem to your computer's LAN port to see if it connects to the Internet. If not, the cable is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Try rebooting both the modem and the router. It could be that the modem didn't pick up it's ip number when the internet went down. Then try pluggint you computer directly into the modem first to make sure it is setup and working properly. Then plug in the router (to the modem) and the PC plugged in directly to the router and check.

Once you have it connecting at that point then check the wireless settings on both the router and the pc. Then enable the wireless on the pc, unplug the LAN and switch to wireless network on the pc and see if it won't work.

If it works plugged in on the LAN but then not on the wireless then either your configuration isn't correct (ie wrong gateway ip number...gateway should be the same ip number as the router...ie 192.168.***.***) or perhaps the wireless part of the router died. It is possible for the wireless to die and the LAN (hard wired connection) to still work.

I'm in the middle of my afternoon internet time, (2pm-6pm daily) & my belkin wireless router's internet light begins flashing & I then lose connectivity, what could it be? A driver issue maybe?


it could be. i owned a wireless router one time, (a fairly cheap one) and it was under almost constant, heavy usage (2 - sometimes 3 wireless laptops, 1 desktop and xbox live) and one day it just gave out. it could be a driver problem, but what i would do is unplug the router, let it set for 30 seconds or so, then plug it back in. this almost always fixed any router i stumbled across.

Have you tried to reset router. It has to be done in order.
1. unplug router
2. unplug modem
3. shut down computer and restart after waiting 1 min
4. after restarting computer plug power back into modem and wait for all the lights to start blinking

I am trying to connect a wrt150n wireless linksys router to my dsl. I am using a desktop windows 7 and laptop windows vista. Please help, I have tried everything but it just does not want to work.


unplug everything, including ethernet cables. then work in this exact order.
if you get a wireless signal and no internet, plug a computer in into the router in one of the available ports and check for internet. If no internet, unplug everything and test the modem without the router. If internet available without the router, then follow these instructions
  1. plug phone line into modem
  2. plug power into modem
  3. wait for all lights to become steady
  4. plug ethernet cable into modem
  5. plug other end of same cable into port labled "internet"
  6. wait for lights to become constant on both router and modem
  7. check your wireless device for wireless service.
if you dont get a wireless signal at all, plug your device into the rear of the router and type 192.168.1.1 in the adress bar
the password and username are both "admin" or simply leave the password blank if that doesn't work

navigate to the wireless option and turn on the wireless transmiter.
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!
