I believe you are getting service interupt this can be caused by other signals in the house or outside blocking you wifi
try moving comp closer to the signal of modem
see if this helps
some wifi's are not stong enough signal and gets disconnected
also someone can be back dooring your wifi signal to steal it
this i would call local cable company you are serviced with and have them test your wifi for intrusions

My wifi keeps disconnecting and have to restart phone to reconnect, but only lasts for maybe an hour


Samsung Galaxy S 4G Smartphone: WiFi disconnects (have to restart phone to reconnect, does not scan for WiFi connections):

Hello. It could be that your "Auto Network Switch" setting is on..

What Auto Network Switch does: when the WiFi gets too low the phone automatically switches to cellular, and when cellular connection gets too low, the phone will switch to WiFi

All Samsung Galaxy's are not alike for it's menu settings.. but you can try:

for S4 and up:
Settings>hold down on WiFi settings for a second then let go > un-check box at top for "Smart Network Switch"

for other Samsung Smartphones see the attached video below:


If your device is having issues trying to scan for your router.. try turning off your router for 2 minutes, then turn it back on.. make sure you wait a few minutes for your router to properly boot back up before you try scanning for your WiFi network again

When i connect to the internet how do i disconnect? Internet is on all the time.


Hi,
You may go to settings and tap again Wifi or Mobile Network depending on which one you are using. It's just like a toggle switch, that is, if you are connected it will disconnect you, and vice versa. It would also be easy if you add to home a Widget for Wifi or Mobile Networks (At home, click "+" menu->Widget->Settings->Mobile Network).
Lastly, before you turn-off your phone, disconnect the internet connection or else it will just connect automatically after turning it on (unless that is what you desired).
Hope this helps.

I have the Insignia NS-WBRDVD2. My problem is with the internet connection. It says I am connected...but it also says "timeout" on the same screen. If I try to go to Netflix, it tells me I am...


I have the exact same problem. My blu-ray player was working about half an hour ago and now suddenly it is telling me "Your BD Player does not seem to have a properly configured internet connection, which allows features such as BD-Live, Netflix and software update notifications. [Press the] red button to configure the network connection."I do so and it connects to my wifi connection but wont allow me to use CinemaNow, Netflix, or Pandora. My wifi is working perfectly normal on my laptop at the moment. I don't know what happened. One minute I'm streaming a movie on CinemaNow and now it wont cooperate with my wifi at all.I was wondering if maybe you solved your issue (considering you posted 5 months ago) and if you could possibly give me any advice??

Wifi connection problem


Windows WiFi Fix,

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:


Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.
