I am getting these micro freezes on my router - no problem on the modem (has been checked, working fine) at totally random times, every 3-15 minutes or so. This means that e.g. Skype drops out or my Pokerstars connection disconnect for a bit. I don't know where to even start looking.
Try to lower the MTU setting on the router to 1492.
You can do this by accessing the router setup page by going to your browser and type in http://192.168.2.1 leave the password blank if you're asked for a password the hit submit. On the Internet WAN, change the MTU settings to 1492 hit on Apply Changes.

connect your computer to netgear modem alone and check for the ip address in the computer (make sure that you have selected "assign ip automatically" in computer)... to open command prompt type "cmd" and hit enter in run box... then you can check ip address by typing "ipconfig" in command prompt... make a note of IP adress or ipV4 address found under the heading "ethernet adapter local area connection" it might be 192.168.X.X now connect only the belkinrouter and check for the ip address using the same steps above... it might be 192.168.2.X make a note of that... now compare both the ip addresses if they both have the same value in first three places...that is 192.168.2.... or something like 192.168.1.... or 192.168.0.... then you are facing with double NAT issue...
all that you need to do for that is to change the ip address of belkin router... if it is 192.168.2.1 change into something like 192.168.15.1...the issue will get resolved....if not you can reset the belkin router by pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds using a toothpick when the power is turned on...
hi, there are two ways to assit you on this issue.Either you can call belkin customer care which is a TOLL FREE no. on the product box and get assisted or else proceed with the following basic steps.
1. the product that you have is an obsolette.
2.Before troubleshooting the belkin product. Please connect your computer directly with the modem (without router)on the ethernet(lan) port and check for the solid lights on the modem after turning it on, after that check for internet connectivity, if you can go online, its fine else you need to contact your modem vendor and get fixed.
3. if u can go online, then connect your router isolated port to the modem amd your computer back to the router's lan port(port 1) and check for the solid internet,power,modem,lan lights on the router.
4. if all are solid lights , check you can go online else you can hold the reset button at the rear side of your router for 2 mins if you have a cable modem and then check for connectivity.
5. If you have a dsl connection , then better contact customer care, they assit you very well.
You need to find out what settings need to be changed in the router to communicate to the new modem. Etisalat should have some type of instructions on how to configure it...Does the IP address get obtained automatically or is it manually configured. Does the modem require authentication..like a password. Did they replace the modem or just upgrade the system? You may just ahve to reset the modem and router to get reconnection. Most routers use the IP address of 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 to get to the router settings control panel. Just enter one of these addresses on internet explorer and a screen should ask for a password. The default password is usually ADMIN but consult the routers manual for instructions. Once you are in the router control manual you can configure the router to work with the new system.
First, try to reset the router. Hold the reset button at the back of the router for 20 seconds then unplug the power. Make sure the modem is off as well. While the modem and router are off, double check your physical connection. Make sure the modem is plug into the Internet port of the router and your PC to port number 1. Power on the modem first, wait for the lights to go solid then power on the router. Check if the internet works fine.
Do a powercycle. Make sure to completely turn off the modem, router, after 30 seconds, turn on the modem first then the router.
If that will still not work, perhaps there is a need to update the software of your router.
First step of solution would be performing Reset. Press and hold the reset button about 30 seconds and release. Check again. If you need customized settings just type 192.168.2.1 in your browser and get into settings.
If issue persist please post for further troubleshooting.
I had the same problem. My Belkin N1 Router was constantly dropping the WiFi connection (every few minutes). I tried several solutions I found on different forums:
Change the channel selection from Auto to a specific channel -- I tried all 13 channels, but no improvement.
Update the firmware to the latest (Beta) version -- still no improvement.
Finally I enabled "Protected Mode" and the connection seems fine now. Hope this helps, and good luck!
when you upgraded did any settings from your isp change like passwords or usenames that your router may not be registering at your isp's server, or the line speed that you are now getting is not suported by the router.
type 192.168.2.1 in your web browser and check the connection settings.
