    My Download Master dose not download anyfile, even online appear on screen. It's just appear "Queued" but I can download the same file with

    Utorrent completely smooth. I don't know how I have to set up more ? Now I think Why I bought this Asus ? I bought this because I love to download. Feeling so bad that can't download.

Use a FAT32 Formatted partition (32GB) on your external USB Harddrive as the main Master Download Area. To do this, connect the drive to the PC by USB and re-partition the drive in sections with the disk manager. 32GB for the FAT32 and the rest in NTFS. Re-connect the drive to the WL500W USB and the FAT32 partition will be recognised automatically by the Router. Linux users can use the full HD drive if they format the drive in Ext2/Ext3. Correctly formatted USB memory sticks with a capacity of 32GB are better suited for this un-attended (low power) dowloading. You can use a (FAT32) 8 Gbyte stick also !

Warning !

Using only NTFS partitions will make the drive read-only and useless for un-attended downloads by the WL500W. Unfortunatly this is the case with 100% of all new availbale drives (>500GB) - So RE-PARTITION it wisely !!!

What about Queing (Waiting) ?

It waits for the connection and if bandwidth is available it starts the download. If files are missing on a server or the address is invalid an error is risen and the link is aborted or deleted. Many BitTorrent files are invalid or have nobody seeding. Waiting is therefore the best option.

Why does my router keeps dropping the Internet


You need to supply a lot more information before this can be diagnosed.
1. What is the router name and model?
2. Who is your internet provider?
3. What type of internet connection is it? Cable, DSL, wireless, satellite, other?
4. What are the symptoms, i.e. frequency of drops, time of day, duration?

My internet connects slows (211kbps) and drops off completely. AT&T says it's inside the home. Anyway to check the modem? I have unplugged and restarted it several times


More likely your telephone junction box outside your house has a bad wire connection - I've experienced the same problem before for my DSL. In addition, sometimes my phone line would go out as well - no dial tone. Listen to your phone and check if you have a dial tone when the Internet connection drops out - they may be associated.

Hi i hav purchased a Dlink dir 300 router. is this router capable of letting multiple pcs n cell phones connect to it for internet wirelessly with out the need of keeping 1 pc switched on all the time? i...


Yes if you consult the manual that came with the router it will show you how to connect the modem to it and setup the DSL (PPPOE)settings. Some Modems though already have the PPPOE settings within the unit and then the router would just need to be set to automatic. You will need to configure from the PC but afterwards you can shut down all your PC's on the network at anytime.

Netgear WGR614 v6 router drops connection


Hi, what ISP are you using (aol,tiscali...?), and how are you connecting to the router? Wired or wireless? I had similar problems with mine, it wouldn't connect or would drop connection, or loose all the settings. I updated the firmware to the latest from here:- 
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/WGR614v6.asp

Be sure this is the correct model as firmware differes from model to model.
Then I had to manually configure my ISP settings etc. Or you may have software from your ISP which configures for you.
Hope this helps.

D-link WBR-2310 has serious drop out problems


I'm pretty sure that downgrading the firmware to 1.0.3 will work. I had been running at this level for quite some time and for some reason I decided to upgrade to the latest version which started the problems for me. I am downgrading to this now and I expect better results. All of the firmware versions are available at http://www.dlink.com/products/support.asp?pid=470&sec=0. You pick the right hardware revision. PLEASE NOTE: Save off/remember your settings as when you change the firmware it resets all of them back to system defaults.

Got wireless signal but no internet connection


You can try to power cycle your entire network (refresh).
This often happens when you have a large network.
  1. power down ALL Computers and disconnect the desktop from the D-Link Switch.
  2. turn off all SLAVE AP's first.
  3. Turn off the Master AP and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  4. Turn off the D-Link Switch and disconnect one end of the Ethernet.
  5. Now, turn off your modem.
Leave them for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your urgency.
Turn on and connect all devices in the EXACT order.
  1. Turn on the modem. wait 2 minutes.
  2. Turn on the D-Link Switch and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the MODEM.
  3. Turn on the Master AP and wait 1 minute. Then connect the Ethernet to the D-Link Switch.
  4. Turn ONE of the Slave AP's. Turn on your Laptop. try to connect to the Internet. If successful, Disconnect from the network on the computer and proceed to turn on the rest of the Slave AP's, Laptops, and Desktop. If its NOT successful, power on the Desktop and try to connect to the internet.
  • If the desktop connects to the Internet, Check your D-Link's homepage "192.168.1.1" (default) for any wrong settings. If it does not connect, check your DSL Modem's settings.
If the above does not work, post what you did the day before this happened. Probably something small might have messed with the network.

Re internet connection loss


Hi, well it may be, but it indeed just sounds pretty normal to me ... lol  unless it is doing it very frequently?

I would tend to think that it is fairly normal to "Drop Off", "Hang Up" etc  say a few times a month, anything else, may indicate a problem.

Also try disabling Windows XP Service zeroconfiguration wifi this often causes this type of thing sometimes.
