If you are refering to a loss of signal this is ocurring more and more as we get into the wireless age. You need to play with it by switching the router channels. You can access the router by going to your internet explorer and in the address bar type the router url I/E 192.168.1.1 or whatever the manufacture recommends Most passwords are provided by them. You can onlu access the router through a wired machine generally in port one of your router You will find the channel settings in the advanced section of most WAN areas of your router. There is also a setting on some for increasing the signal strength. and one last trick if you have neighbors that are "jamming" you place your router on the floor intead of higher up . Good luck..

Since this is a desktop PC that has Windows 7 OS, there might be a possibility that the issue is on your wireless adapter. As we all know, desktop PC's has no built in wireless card on them, so you need to install a wireless USB adapter on your PC. Of course, 3rd party wireless USB adapters has their own wireless utility to manage the wireless connection and that is where you need to put in the infos about your wireless connection. You didn't mention if on the 2nd part, is it asking you to re-type your wireless passphrase or is it asking you for a WPS pin.

When I installed my Linksys WUSB54GSC Adapter my computer will not boot up. I have Windows Vista. The computer is new.


Disconnect the usb adapter and see if your computer still boots up. If it does, try connecting the adapter on another usb port and see what happens. If your PC will still not boot up using another usb port, try the adapter on a 2nd computer. If 2nd PC fails to boot up when the adapter is plugged in, most likely the adapter is faulty.

To test it whether the signal is too weak or not, take your laptop closer to where the router is and try to connect that way. If it does connect then the wireless signal from the router is too weak in which case get a range expander or purchase a router with extended range.

Stronger Wireless Signal with 2701HGB Router?


Netgear's web site has an excellent tutorial on how to do this. It involves turning off the DHCP on the Netgear, and linking the LAN prots of the two routers. There is no connection to the WAN port of the Netgear.

Losing internet connection on d-link wbr 1310 every so often as like 10min-1hr on wireless


There could be a number of reasons as to why the connection is being lost.
1. You could be too far away from the router to pick up the wireless signal clearly - and atmospherics can effect this more. 2. The ADSL filter could be faulty or not installed. 3. The ISP could be dropping out.
You could try plugging in with a cable and seeing if the problem persists (in which case it probably isn't the wireless link)?
There are some LED indicators on the router to help with the diagnosis.
