After over a year of good use, the past 2 weeks have seen the router repeatedly lose the internet connection after a minute or so of use. It reboots ok initially but then loses the connection again.

Why does my internet keep losing its connection , this has been happening for 2 weeks now and is getting very annoying , now thinking of changing my provider ..


If it is the wi-fi that keeps dropping, it could be due to any number of reasons. Try rebooting the router- unplug it, wait for a minute, power it back on. Extend all the antennas upward, if you haven't done that. Change the location of the router by moving it around the house/flat. Try relocating it upstairs if you are in a multi-storey building (of course your cabling should allow you to do these). If it has been working fine before, may be there are more users now than before competing for the Wi-fi bandwidth in the neighbourhood. You could ask for a newer router to try out from the provider. If it is the internet connection rather than the wi-fi which gives you the problem, the provider has to sort that out.

Netgear wifi vs moto x phone


Step 1
hey can you login to your router of yes make sure your router is dhcp enabled, then on you phone kindly delete or forget your current wifi settings, then do a phone restart and register a wifi (connect to a new wifi spot) and try again.

Step 2
  1. step%203.png
    If the page displays, you have Internet access. If the page does not display in a minute, see the "No Internet With New Router, Computer or Adapter: MAC Spoofing" article.
  2. Determine if the modem's IP address can be seen.

    In the router interface, go to the Status Page. For more information, see your router user manual.
    step%202.png
    If the modem's IP address cannot be seen, reboot the modem, router, and computer, in that order. Be sure to wait for each device to completely reboot before rebooting the next.

    If the modem's IP address is seen, and you stuill cannot access the Internet, you might have a problem with your browser's settings. Your security might be set too high for the Internet service you are trying to use, or your browser might 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 not dimmed, settings for a dial-up connection are being used.

Hello,
I have seen a similar issue several time created by the cordless phone.

If you have your router too close to your cordless phone, you may have radio interference since both are working on a close bandwidth.

Please move one of the 2 away and tell me if you see any improvement.

Losing connection from the router


You may have an IP address conflict with another machine. why don't you just plug the router into the computer to see if that solves your problem first. If it doesn't. you should contact your internet carrier. You can also try this: turn everything off, and unplug EVERYTHING for a few minutes. Plug the AC adapters back into the devices FIRST, then into the wall. this will often drain power and solve IP issues.

HP dv6139 loses Inet connection after 5 minutes (both ethernet & router)


Most probably it's the router's fault, if you have one. I've seen many cheap routers randomly loosing wireless connection with their computer clients. Try with another router. One possible solution: upgrade the router's firmware.

Losing connection with WGR614 v6 router


Well, glad I found someone with the same problem, the answer will certianly surprise you.
The answer is cordless phones and satellite interent.
if you have cordless phones and/or satellite internet it will lose signal.
They run on the same frequency.
To fix it log into your router, goto wireless settings, then check the box for enable channel settings. You may have to reboot the router and PC.
Should help.
Good luck and have a happy new year.
