Hi there,
have you tried to reset your wireless router so that the default settings are being used, then try reconfiguring it again for your Internet connection.. then try to connect wireless again ... sounds like your router may have lost its settings which happens for some firmware upgrades.....

or

Wireless Interferences
Neighboring wireless networks or any appliance that operates on the same frequency as your wireless device (e.g. 2.4 GHz) may cause interference and therefore may affect your wireless connection and signal.
Common sources of interference are:

  • Neighboring wireless networks
  • Microwave ovens
  • 2.4 GHz cordless telephones
  • Bluetooth devices
  • Wireless baby monitors
To solve the problem, change the channel and SSID on your Access Point. Preferred channels to use are 1, 6 and 11 since they’re considered non-overlapping channels.

Upgrade the Firmware of the router :
First you should check the version of you WPN824 (v1,v2 or v3). If there are no Version after the model number, it should be a version 1. Download the Firmware of your router given the correct version at this link :

This is assuming that other wireless laptops has the same problem onyour wireless router. If other Laptops works great on your wirelessrouter without dropping any wireless connection, then you shouldconsider upgrading the wireless adapter on you own laptop.

Steps on how to upgrade Netgear firmware :

  1. Download the correct file depending on your location and unzip the file to a convenient place such as your desktop.
  2. Log in the router at http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 (or www.routerlogin.net ) (Which ever will work)

Go to the Belkin support section at their website: http://www.belkin.com/support/

Look for your model router and download the "firmware" upgrade for it. Once you go install the up to date firmware try to give the router a reset. Hopefully doing all that will get the router working again and you connecting to the Internet.

Hi There Joecohn,

Definitely, the username and password for your PPPoE connection is correct since that it works perfectly with your Linksys router. If you are getting a WAN IP Address from the status or summary page of your D-link router then you can lower down the MTU size of your router to 1492. If it didn’t work, upgrade or reflash the firmware, reset it back to the factory default and reconfigure the router for PPPoE connection again.

If it will not obtain an IP address or even if it has a WAN IP but can’t go online then we can consider it as a hardware failure on the D-Link router. Have it replaced.

Do the firmware upgrade as well, on the same page.

Outside of the US, start at http://support.linksys.com and select your country, then choose Technical Support.

It's important to use software meant for your country.

ya linksys sucks because it has a hardware firewall. Go on to that and disable the hardware firewall. You can type 192.168.1.1 into the internet address bar.

Make sure you have a software firewall such as avg which is a great free one.
