    Thanks a lot for your help. I already tried to connect another lab tob and I figured out that the problem is the router and\or my connection. In fact I tried to connect my computer with my neighbours wireless and it worked well. I could see videos and listen to the radio, but not with mine. Can you suggest something to do?

    thanks a lot. I appreciated a lot your help

The first step is to determine if it's your computer being slow on the downloads, or is it the router being slow.

The best way to rule out your computer is not the problem is to get some friend who has a laptop to connect to your internet at your house.

If their laptop gets on the internet just fine and plays videos, then the problem is in your computer. If you are not computer savy, then I'd suggest taking it to your local computer store and have them check it out. (some do the check for free)

If they have the same problem with the internet connection then it's probably the router:

The actiontec GT704WG is a router normally provided from the Internet Service Provider (ISP). Contact your ISP and tell them that you internet is slow and that you would like for them to reset your configuration on your router. They either will do it themselves, or walk you through performing the steps.

    If your internet connection is DSL, and your phone is on the same line, ensure there are DSL filters on all of the phone lines in the house, and they are correctly installed. It happened on my DSL, the phone tech installed the filters but connected my phone to the DSL side of the filter and every time I got a call, I was kicked off the internet.

    Another suggestion is the have the ISP look into why your modem is so slow, and have them check the line quality.

I cannot access the internet,i was using a wireless adapter that is slower than my computer,its the only way i get can i work on high speed? i have a emachine el 1300g-01

Unplug or turn off your DSL/cable modem. Locate, on the back of your Linksys router, the small button that reads Reset. While pressing the Reset button, turn on/plug in router. Hold for 30 seconds. Wait for your Power, WLAN and Internet light to turn on. (On the router) Open your web browser to see if you have an internet connection. If you still don't have an internet connection you may need to restart your computer.

When I go to play a video It will play for a few seconds, stop, than play and it continues to do so.. what do I need to do to fix this problem?

This might be due to a slow internet connection. See, for smooth playback, the part of the movie your computer wants to show has to be downloaded already - it has to be "buffered". If you have a slow internet connection, the speed at which your computer can download a movie might be slower than the actual time it takes to watch what's being downloaded. That's why your movie will stop, wait until another part of it has been buffered, and then recommence.

That means that the setup of your internet connection configuration has a time limit set that it will "wait" for the requested information, by you, to be sent. That problem typically resides on the other end of the connection and not any of YOUR is often due to a server that is running slower because it is busy. Trying again at a different time may give results.

Internet speed not as indicated by modem

problem occurs usually after upgrade of internet speed. contact your ISP again, ask them to check for latency or dropped packets within their network. they need to run a traceroute from their end and it would also be better if you can run a traceroute from your end. also run a speedtest through or There's also a possibility that the modem is becoming faulty. If your ISP provided you the modem it's still best to contact them for possible replacement.

Belkin router frequent internet connection loss


...first of all :
latest firmware version is -all i know- version 3.01.29 so my question is : where did you get / found firmware version 3.01.30 ? can you give me a link ?
...then :
after installing the new firmware causing this problem after installation you should save your settings to take care. then you should first use internal 'new start / restart-funktion' of your router.
try this, if it helps.
when it should not help, then save settings as well and make hard-reset on your router. for this you press the reset-button at the back of your router - long enough, watch the blinking symbols on front.

after them you should ONLY MANUALLY configure the router for internet access, DO NOT USE the installation disc ! for manual configuration you should connect the router and your computer by cable, using ethernet-port #1 at the router.
then open your browser, enter at address bar, no http or anything before or after, only this number... then the web-interface will be opened and on the left you find the navigation-menu.
enter menu 'internet wan' -> for usual highspeed / broadband- access you will get access-codes from your isp (internet service provider), then the connection type is pppoe...

this is most usual procedure...

try this and give feedback... :)

sincerely nayss
