Wireless connection Hi there, I have a wireless router at home but the connection drops on and off. I was wondering if I buy a better one instead of the free one provided by the network provider, will that solve the problem? Thanks Yan

Not necessarily..the signal will be in proportion to the distance and quality of your wireless card inside your computer.

Netgear dgn1000 modem router keeps dropping out


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

Wreless devices causing modem to drop out requiring reset to connect to internet. Works fine with belkin wireless adapter. Lg dongle for HDD recorder and Mobile phone both cause problem. Is there any fixes...


You're better off buying a better, new router (one that includes a "Self Healing" feature that will basically reboot the router automatically on a set schedule). Also, try a different brand, Belkin is infamous for making routers that constantly drop connections.

Hi Support team, I use Modem Motorola SB100 with Linksys WAP54G, and DLink Wireless G DWA USB Adapter to connect to Linksys WAP from my PCDesktop. Connection from the PC to Linksys is ok but can't...


peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a Belkin F5D7234-4 v3 wireless router. I was wondering, is there any way to either upgrade to a different firmware version such as the v4, or just a simple way to make it more a wifi receiver?


You cannot upgrade v3 to v4 or v5. Belkin routers are junk, because once they come out with a new version you will never see a fix for your router. You have to go buy a new router if you want better access to the routers settings. You are better off buying another brand like I did. Belkin blows.

Connection to the internet from one computer to the other


If you can get ONE computer connected to the internet and want to connect the other computer THROUGH that first computer (though I don't know why you'd want to unless that first one is setup as a firewall), tell the Windows network wizard that you're connecting through another machine instead of directly. A better way to do it is to buy a router/switch, connect ONLY that one to the internet, then connect the other PC's to that router/switch.

Belkin Router - not wireless


As I've stated in many previous posts both Belkin and D-link routers (wired and wireless) are "famous" (for lack of a better word) for dropping connection with your internet carrier.

I *highly* recommend Linksys routers ...whether you get wired or not, they're just plain better ...and powered by Cisco technology. The best part - they're roughly the same price or cheaper than those "other" routers.

Go buy one at Walmart. Hook it up. See the difference. If it doesn't do everything like it should, take it back and you've lost nothing. If it does, take the Belkin and sell it on Craigslist or eBay.

Hope this helps - remember to rate

Wireless router and home phone


it is highly unlikely that your router would disable your phone. Although there is a possibility it may cause static on the line.
