Everything works great for a while then all of a sudden i cannot get access to the internet. I reset the router and my modem and everything works OK. This would not be a problem except that it happens a couple of times a day. Any ideas?

The first thing you should do is try to isolate the problem to either your router or your modem. The next time you lose connectivity, only reset one of the devices and see which one is causing the disconnect. Then, once you've determined where the problem is, go online to the device manufacturer's website and see if you can download updated firmware for the device, which may fix stability issues that the version you have doesn't address.

No internet


I had exactly the same problem with my EnGenius ENS202EXT. I was trying to set up an Access Point, hard wired to a FAST1704N V1.0 Router/Modem from Windstream communications.

I spent 2 days trying/altering as many different combination settings as possible, on the Engenius. It turned out in the end that I had alter an unnecessary setting in the Fast1704 modem/router. After I reset the modem to factory settings everything worked beautifully. I have great coverage and higher speeds than I ever had before.

Note: in addition to the fact that internet would not pass through to the Access Point I was trying to set up, neither would the FAST1704N V1. show up on the internal network. I could not find or communicate to the FAST1704N V1. through my own network until I reset my modem/router. After resetting the modem and getting internet through the AP, I went back an readjusted the critical settings in the modem. Everything working great.

Internet problems


try resetting your modem, not the router. Unplug it, wait a bit and plug it back in. the modem needs to see the routers ip address so it allows connectivity. Right now the modem has your computers ip address and doesn't see the router, until you reset it. try it, it should work.

I have a Linksys wired router, which I have had for years and everything worked fine until a couple of days ago when I was no longer able to connect to the internet. I disconnected the router and connected...


Hello,

Do this with your network setup. Power down your DSL/Cable modem first by unplugging the power. Power down the router next by unplugging the power. Power off your computer also. Now , power up the dsl/cable modem and let it resync with the ISP ...all lights green and showing activity. Next power up the Linksys router and then do a factor restore reset by pushing in the reset and holding it for a count of 5 (the front lights will go red then flash) let go of the reset as your linksys router is all set to default setttings from the factory. Now power up your computer and try the internet after it boots up. Should hook to the internet with no problems now. Now access your router menu by typing http://192.168.1.1 and hit enter. The router log in menu should now display. just click on the password tab and enter admin the default password and then change your password in the router to something hard to remember and WRITE IT DOWN! There is also great help from linksys web site on networking your home. Good luck,

Computer cabled to Dynex enhanced G wireless will not connect


Unplug the router for ten seconds and plug it back in, it needs to reset. Some routers have a reset button. I often wait longer than ten seconds, I find a beer is usually the right amount of time. Sometimes the modem needs a reset also; unplug everything, then plug back in sequence, with the modem first, the wait, then the router, wait, then turn on your computer. That system works for any brand modem and router.

Suddenly router stopped working!


Hi jsamanta!

First of all check if the power light is blinking or solid. if it's blinking reset your router.

When your computer is directly connected to the router try checking the IP address by clicking start>run> type cmd then ok. then type ipconfig then hit enter. IP address should be something like 192.168.1.100. not 169.254.xx.xx. if it's the latter reset your router. use a ball point pen or a paper clip. the reset button is a small hole at the back. If the IP address is like the first one i've mentioned. log-in to your router.

launch browser (internet explorer or firefox)
type http://192.168.1.1 or whatever your default gateway is. go to the status tab and check if you are getting a WAN or internet IP address. if not you will see a "release" and "renew" button. hit release then renew. if you're still not getting anything. do a power cycle. turn everything off. connect everything the way they are supposed to be connected. turn on modem first then router then computer.

If everything fails the last options is a firmware update on the router.


Hope this helps. =)

Check for a vaild gateway address on router,start.run.cmd> type in ipconfig.if you dont have a valid ip or gatway. try a powercycle,turn off modem and then router,wait about 10-20 sec and plug modem back in. check your ip and gateway check for a connection, if that dont work call netgear to see if u have a defaulted router, or take it back for new one if u still have a recicpt.

Belkin Router - Network works for 5 minutes than everything loses internet capability.


hi,

           This issue usally occurs when the router is able to save the data stored or in  other words the Router id not able to AUTHENTICATE,  but as you already got a new router and you have already done the fireware upgradation of the router. we can also upgrade the firmware of your speedstream modem.

 

plz do these following steps ,( plz disconect the router from the computer and modem completly while doing the steps )

 

 

 

The Efficient 5260 modems that can be upgraded are as follows:

Look on the label on the bottom of your modem. It should read:

SpeedStream 5260 Ethernet ADSL Modem
Part Number: 060-5660-00x (where x=any number)
Revision: any (all revisions seem to work)

If your part number reads anything else, your modem is most likely not upgradable.

For those curious, 5660 models 003 and earlier do NOT support G.Lite ADSL, only DMT. If you are buying a 5260 or 5660 model secondhand, and your DSL ISP uses G.Lite DSL, it would be a good idea to check with the person selling you the DSL modem.

UPDATE: As of 5660 Firmware v2.3.0(2) and later all 5660 including 5260/5660 hybrids support G.Lite ADSL. It pays to use the latest Firmware.

 

 

 

PLZ REPLY IF THIS HELPS, I WILL TRY TO FIND OUT THE RESOLUTION FOR THIS ISSUE

 

REGARDS.
