It can sometimes be tricky solving wireless connectivity, but here's a few things you should try:

Reboot the router. I know, everyone says that, but it does help most of the time.

Update the driver on your wireless card. A lot of times, manufacturers find fault in theri devices and update the drivers to compensate and fix those problems.

Along with this, also try looking for new software/firmware updates for your router. it soudns scary at first, but normally there is an easy way to this built into the router software. simply go the manufacturer's web site and download the latest and greatest for your model. then follow the directions that usually are packaged with the driver file in a text file of some kind.

If that doesn't work, take a real good look at the properties on your wireless connection under "my netwrok places" and make sure evry setting matches exactly with those of the router, sometimes, a difference in these settings can cause instability in your connection too.

Finally, it could be that your wireless card and the router are just not compatible. some manufacturers build in different tollerence levels inside their products in order to give their own companion hardware a slight edge in compatibility. call it marketing: I call it mean-spirited, but the fact remains that it is done by some manufacturers and it means that you may find that your wireless card will never work with that router and may find yourself having to replce one or the other. dlink and some built in cards have this failing in common.

Hope that helps.

Keeps Getting DIsconnected from network


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can 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 the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

I keep losing my internet connection when I use the wireless router. When I disconnect the wireless router, internet works great but when I reconnect it it keeps cutting out. I unplug it for ten seconds...


Try changing the channel to 11. Cordless landline phones often interfere with the default router channel. It can even be your neighbors phone that is conflicting.

MY ROUTER KEEPS LOSING CONNECTION


Hello fieldon68, & to all the rest with the same problem.

There are many things that could be wrong, but intermittant discounnects sounds very much like a interverance from another wireless device. (ie phone, cell, etc)

To try to address this issue, follow the steps below:
Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.
  1. Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in http://192.168.2.1 in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
  2. You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit ( unless you created a password, then enter that).
  3. On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .
  4. The wireless channel on the Belkin router is set to Auto by defualt. Change the wireless to a static channel. Click Apply Changes .
  5. Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
Note: The wireless card in the computer will automatically detect the change in channel number on the router and will update the channel on the card.
CauseYou get disconnected wirelessly mainly due to an environmental interference. When the wireless channel is set to auto, the router will cycle to though channels when it detects significant interference. When the router changes channel the wireless connection will reset itself and disconnect all wireless clients connected to the router. Wireless signals are prone to interference from cordless phones and electrical appliances (e.g., vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens). This is one of the more popular reasons Belkin wireless connections can drop. Good Luck Mark P.S. Please leave a rating.

Belkin Router keeps frezing.


Try changing the channel of the router to 1,9 or 11, and make sure that there is no cordless phone near the router or the wireless computer, this will help mionimize wireless interference. If this may not work you may want to adjust some settings on the advance wireless settings of the router like the beacon(set it to 50) and RTS/fragmentation(2304).

Laptop keeps disconnecting then connecting every so often.


Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?

Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?

If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.

I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.
