Can't seem to find the manual on it but....
Most DSL/Routers have a connection setting in them with 2 settings.
1) On demand (Connects to internet as needed)
2) Always on (Stays connected to the internet)

Sounds like your DSL/Router is set to option 1

    NO the situation is a DHCP server is assigning the IP address to client switching from one access point to other. Also each access point belongs to different subnet, so what if DhCP pool does not have any extra IP address remaining?

Wireless internet connection drops frequently

Things That Affect Wireless Router Signals
1. Many wireless routers are using the same wireless channel. Many manufacturers choose channel 6 as the default. Change to another channel. 2. Analogue video senders used to send audio and video to other TVs in the home. 3. Microwave ovens emit interference in the 2.4GHz band. 4. Wireless speakers and console controllers can cause interference with the wireless router. 5. Bluetooth devices, newer Bluetooth devices can jump to different frequencies if there is a connection problem. 6. Power cables located near the wireless router can cause dropouts and speed reduction. 7. Fish tanks will cause massive Wi-Fi shadow on the other side of the tank from the wireless router. 8. Depending upon the location of large mirrors will reflect wireless signal away your computer. 9. Building materials will block wireless signals such as plasterboards with metal foil, reinforced concrete walls and floors. Also objects near the wireless router such as metal filing cabinets and other electrical appliances. 10. Blinking Christmas lights can reduce Wi-Fi performance by 25% when it is close to the wireless router.

If you have no wireless devices to connect to the internet, you don't need a new router. There is speed test software you can google and download. It will tell you exactly how fast your connection speed is. You may need to upgrade your service too. One thing to do first is to clean up your PC. That means clearing all cache, deleting useless files and cleaning the registry. A program called CCleaner will do the job nicely. Next is to max out the amount of memory your motherboard will support. Make sure you keep at least 100 Mb of free space on your hard drive.If it's any less, your PC will be really slow. Adding an additional hard drive or an external drive is the answer to that.

Belkin 54g Router won't connect to internet.

If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.

Want to get more speed out o my fiberoptic broadand

Well the best router for your connection type would be WNR2000. Even Virgin media recommend this router for their 20 and 50 Meg connection. I am pretty confident that this router will meet your requirement with this ISP connection.

Hope this helps.

Certainly by releasing and renewing your routers connection it is most likely dropping the other wireless clients (resetting DHCP), and or interrupting their downloads. If some of the wireless clients are unattended (and downloading) the may not be renewing their IP address immediately. Therefor the performance increase.
To confirm this check the number of DHCP clients logged into the router before and after you run the wizard and or reset the router

You may wish to inform your roommate that they are liable for it\'s use. For example the downloading and uploading of child ****. Lets face it, if your want to do something illegal or questionable on the internet... better to use someone else\'s account!

If they still want to keep the network unlocked, perhaps powering it off when it isn\'t in use will help.

The Wireless Signal keeps dropping out.

make sure that there are no cordless or wireless devices near the router such as a cordless phone since that will interfere with the wireless signal and a cause for frequent disconnection.

otherwise, the device should be replaced already.
