Why does my acer aspire 5315 wifi keep disconnecting and reconnecting?


hello sir.

Reason :-
1.Make sure your acer aspire is in range.
2.cheack is it your wireless disconnecting and reconnecting or is it your internet disconnecting and reconnecting.
3.Are you facing this issue with any other machine or is this the only one.
If this is the only computer in which your wifi connection is dropping then there is issue with wireless connectivity.

solution:-
1.Turn of your router and modem and then check the wireless connectivity.
If issue still persist then:-
2.Create a new network name and wireless security key and then connect to it:- Now check the wireless stability whether is it still disconnecting an reconnecting or is it stable now.

If issue still persist then bright your laptop close to router and then check wifi disconnecting any more or not if not then change the channel to 1 or 11 from your wireless router page.

Let me know if this worked for you or not.
If worked then please rate my solution.

Wont reset and has erratic blinking lights. Tried power reset, reset button, etc.


Does the power light blinks when you press the reset button?
If power light is blinking continuously then I think your router is not working and you need a new one.

WRT120N---I keep having to disconnect my linksys, unplug all 3 wires on the back of the router, wait 30 sec...reconnect the router...try to get online...when it works then reconnect the linksys....what am...


Please disconnect and internet link and try to access the the Linsys WRT100 management page and see the logs why the router is loosing the connection. If you dont get anything then it might be some issue on the device. A reset may solve your issue.

Please be aware the if u reset the wireless Router you will loose all your configuration and you have to reconfigure the wireless Router.

Please press the tiny black button at the back/beneath of the wireless Router and keep pressing for 2 minutes. The sys light will start blinking slowly and then rapidly. then release the button and wait for 2 minutes for the device to boot up with factory default settings.

Once you are done you can connect to 192.168.1.1 ip address and it will open the your Linksys Router management web page where you can reconfigure your wireless router again.

Hope this will fix the issue.

Best Regards

I have a linksys WRT120 connected to my home network. I have one computer "wired" directly to the router and one wirelessly connected with WPA2 security. Last week i was having connection issues with the...


I'd suggest that you reset the Router to its default factory settings. After doing so, when opening a browser, you should be prompted to initiate the setup wizard. Once set up I recommend checking for any recent firmware updates.


On the WRT120 the Reset button is located on the
right side of the product label. There are two
ways to reset the Router to its factory defaults.
a) Either press and hold the Reset button for
approximately five seconds.
b) Log into your router and restore the
defaults from the (Administration > Factory
Defaults) screen of the Router’s browser‑based
utility.


Check out the Linksys Support Page for your router.

I hope this helps!
Good luck and Please rate :)

F5D7234-4 unable to connect to internet with router and forgot passwords


Hello, If you are locked out of the router you will need to reset it. There will be a small button (usually at the back) with reset wrote beside it. You will probably need a paper clip or something to push it.

<><><>

Next to the power supply connection is a pinhole Reset button. Disconnect all cords from your router except the power cord. Press Reset button with a pin for 10 seconds. Wait 10 more seconds then unplug router. If it is then reset to the original factory settings you will have to reinstall it using software that came with router. You may have to reinstall your network card software as well.

<><><>

Some, but not all, routers have a reset button. Different routers require different steps to perform resetting. On many of them, to restore your own "personal setup" that was created when you first installed the router - not the original factory settings - you just have to disconnect the power supply and reconnect it after a minute or two. You will need to locate and read the manual if you cannot get to Belkin's support site online.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.

Netgear DG834Gv3 ceased to get internet connection.


Hello!
Hopefully if you try the following steps, you might be able to get to the problem.
Troubleshooting Steps
  1. Disconnect the router, and make a call with your telephone. If this does not work, contact your phone company.
  2. Reconnect the router, checking that all cables attached to the router and computer are secure.
  3. Check that the WAN light is green or blinking green. This may take several minutes after connecting or rebooting the router. If the WAN light is off or blinking yellow, contact your ISP.
  4. Check the LEDs for the ports with cables are lit. If not, move the cable to a different port. If there are still no lights, then troubleshoot light status, as explained in the router manual.
  5. Check if the LED on the Ethernet adapter in your computer is lit. If it is not, then troubleshoot the adapter, do not continue this document. 
  6. Power off the router.
  7. Power the router on again.
  8. If you still cannot log on to the router, then do a hard reset on the router, as described below in reset router.
  9. If you still cannot log on to the router, try to get assistance from Netgear at www.netgear.com.
  10. Run the router's SmartWizard. This lets the router discover whether you have a static or dynamic IP address, and whether you are using PPPoE to connect to your ISP. (For routers without this utility, go to Step 14.)
  11. If a dynamic IP address is discovered, go to Step 15.
  12. If PPPoE is discovered, configure your router with the username and password from your ISP. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 15.
  13. If a static IP address is discovered, configure your router with this information given by your ISP: the IP address for your router, the address of the ISP's DNS, and the address of the gateway. Click Apply to enter the data. Go to Step 15.
  14. If the smart configuration utility does not find an IP address: 
    1. Power off the router.
    2. Power on the router.
    3. Go back to Step 10.
  15. Click Test to access NETGEAR's online test page. If the page displays, then you have Internet access!
  16. If the page does not display in a minute, you may need to do something called MAC spoofing, which I listed below.
  17. Find out if the modem's IP address can be seen by looking at the Router's Status Page, as described in the manual. If not, then reboot the router and computer, in that order. Wait for the router to completely reboot before starting your computer.
  18. If the router's IP is seen, then there is a problem with your browser's settings. Your security may be set too high for the Internet service you are trying to use, or your browser may be configured for a dial-up connection. In Internet Explorer you check this using Tools > Internet Options > Security > Default Level. If the slider is set to "High", change it to "Medium". Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections. If the radio buttons in the center are greyed out, then settings for a non-dial-up connection are being used.

Reset for routers with reset button on back panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password.If the router was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

MAC Spoofing
  1. Connect the computer that your ISP's installers used to establish Internet connection to the router.If you are unsure which computer was used, call your ISP, and ask what MAC address was registered. Then, using the instructions in the box below find the computer whose MAC address matches their records.
  2. Disconnect other computers from the router.
  3. (If you do not want to disconnect other computers, you need to know the adapter's MAC address, as described in the box below. Then, in step 6, type Use This MAC Address, entering the adapter's address.)
  4. In an Internet browser type the address 192.168.0.1.
  5. Type admin for the username, password (or 1234) for the password, and click OK.
  6. Go to the Basic Settings > Router Mac Address.
  7. Select Use Computer MAC Address.
  8. Click Apply. This automatically gives the router the computer's MAC address.
  9. Click Test to make sure you are connected. If you are not connected, contact your ISP.

I tried to get everything together to try to help you out.  Hopefully this stuff will get you online!
