Can not use internet wirelessly all the time with Linksys rangeplus wireless router

I have two laptops SOny vaio VGN - CR220E and Dell Inspiron 1525. I'm using high speed Internet of ATT. Modem: 2Wire Gateway (4200-001047-001) RG2701. The wireless router is linksys rangeplus wireless router WRT110.
The first time I finished installing the wireless router into my computer and did all the steps correctly, I could not use Internet. Thanks to the technician of Fixya, I can use Internet by changing the IP add 192.168.1.1 into 192.168.2.1
However, sometimes I can not access Internet. I press "diagnose and repair network" tab and it said "can not communicate with the DNS 192.168.2.1. or send to the host but not receive a response".
I don't know why and don't know how to resolve it. Please help me. Thanks

Sounds to me like your modem is hanging up on you. In the software to configure the modem tell it to stay connected all the time.

try reseting the router (pressing the button the size of the tip of a pen)
Do not try this if this is the main internet router (unless you dont have any choice).
It might need to be reset from Server side (your phone/internett company).
There might be some setings lost and you need to set a new password (the old one back)

Linksys rangeplus drops wireless connection ever 5-10 mins


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router’s SSID or the wireless network’s name, click here.
To change the router’s channel, click here.
To enable the wireless security on the router, click here.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware. For instructions, click here
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Can not use Internet with new Linksys rangeplus wireless router


Okay chances are your 2wire's ip address is conflicting with your router's ip address. Set up your router to use 192.168.2.1. Save the settings then everything should work for you.
