Do you use DSL for your connection?

DSL uses a phone line for the connection, and therefore if your ISP doesn't detect activity after a few minutes, it will drop the line. There is a setting called "keep alive" in your router which will automatically either redial or 'ping' your ISP to make sure this doesn't happen. It's in the basic setup screen; if you're using DSL enable it and set it to 1 minute.

If i leave the mouse untouched for a few minutes. I lose connection . What could be the problem please ?

Hi there!
Actually the mouse doesn't have to do with losing your connection. You may have set your computer to auto sleep or you may have activated a power saving option or perhaps a Parental Control function that limits the usage. Check your computer settings for any of these functions.
It would be better if you'll explain your issue further. You may also check your cable modem for any signal issues. There are connection drop off's usually caused by a bad connection for your internet provider.
Have a nice day!

How do I connect my linksys wireless router?

Here are the steps :

1.Attach the antennas to the Linksys wireless router.

2.Place the router in a central location, making sure it's not surrounded by metal. (A signal can't be obtained through metal.) The router should be located so that the distance between clients (computers) is somewhat equal. This will create a better connection.

3.Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the back of the Linksys router.

4.Connect a computer to the router by plugging another Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port on your computer and attaching the other end to one of the available ports on the back of the router. You can choose any port except the one labeled "WAN."

5.Plug the router into an electrical outlet.

6.Wait for the power light to stop flashing, at which time the router is finished booting up. While the router is booting, the power light will be blinking. This process may take a few minutes to complete.

7.Reboot your computer so it can access a new IP address from the router through the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

Configure the Router procedure.

1.Open your web browser, type " " into the address bar and hit "Enter."

2.Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.

3.Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."

4.Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.

5.Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.

6.Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.
