Chances are your ISP is slowing you down run the second test on the following post.

Google's broadband test tools are located at Measurementlab.net. On that page, you'll see an first icon that says "Users: Test Your Internet Connection". Click that, and then you'll be taken to a page where there are three tests available, and two more listed as coming soon. However, out of the three available tests, only one of them is fully automated and easy to use.
Glasnost , second on the list, will check whether your ISP is slowing down (like Comcast) or blocking Peer2Peer (P2P) downloads from software such as BitTorrent. P2P apps are commonly used for downloading illegal software and media content like movies and music, but also are used for legal purposes as well, such as distributing large software packages to many users at once.
To use the measurement tool, you will be redirected to the Glasnost site. You'll need the latest version of Java installed, and you should stop any large downloads that you may have running before you begin the test. If you're on a Mac, a popup message will prompt you to trust the site's Java applet.
When you're ready to start, you can choose whether you want to run a full test (approximately 7 minutes long) or a simple test (4 minutes long).

Hello, Try Router Commander program. The router usually not optimized for torrents. Usage of torrents overflows internal NAT table and router hang after short period of time. This program can solve the problem.

I keep losing internet connection to my PC, so I have to reboot several times a day. My laptop, printer and Nook work fine.


Try reflashing the router, the firmware is available here: http://homedownloads.cisco.com/downloads/firmware/WRT400N_1.0.02_Build_11.bin
If that does not correct the issue, try physically moving the router away from any sources of heat, as that can also cause the issue.

My belkin n series keeps losing internet connection hard wired to my computer and three wireless computers in the house. when hard wired to the virgin broadband modem everything works fine


I would suggest taking a look at your modem LEDs. What happens exactly when you lose connection? A look at the LEDs should give you some thought as what might be causing this. You can also try resetting your Belkin to default factory settings by pressing the Reset button at the back for 30 seconds, and then putting back your Belkin settings.

Losing wireless connection


Your phone frequency must be the same with frequency of your wireless router. To avoid this you access the web GUI of your router page..http://192.168.1.1..( in most cases)...and go to the wireless settings...look for the frequency tab and change the settings ( you can try 1-10). DO trial and error...

4 port wired belkin router


Is the cable to your modem in the 'Uplink' or 'WAN' connnection?

Connect your PC to the modem directly. Do you still lose the connection? If you do, Call your DSL tech support and ask them to check the link to your modem. They should be able to let you know if there is a issue from their end.
