Intermitttant connection with router cisco e2000 , have checked everything that I can think of , am I the only one


Hello,
A lot of factors can cause routers to drop signals. There could be too much interference so your device keeps changing channels. Try changing your wireless settings from auto channel to one of the available channels in the list. You can get to the router config at http://192.168.1.1
If your devices stay connected to the wireless but the internet cuts out, it may be your ISP modem.
There might also be a firmware update for your device that fixes this issue as well.
The latest is version 1.0.04 build 7. Here is the link:Download

My x box 360 keeps freezing ans saying you are disconnected from xbox live, what do i do ?


If your screen freezes when playing on Xbox LIVE, the problem may be related to your Internet connection. A weak wireless signal can cause poor Xbox LIVE performance. If you are using wireless connection:
1. Go to My Xbox and select System Setttings. 2. Select Network Settings. 3. Select Wired Connection or the name of your wireless network. 4. Select Test Xbox LIVE Connection.
If your wireless signal is only one or two bars, try improving your signal strength by following the suggestions below.
  • Move your router or gateway off the floor and away from walls and metal objects such as metal file cabinets).
  • Minimize obstructions along a straight-line path between your Xbox and your wireless router or gateway.
  • Shorten the distance between your console and your wireless router or gateway. Ideally, your network hardware should be near the center of your home.
  • Change the position of the antenna on your Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter (external adapter only).
  • Turn off wireless devices. If your router uses the 2.4 GHz band, try turning off wireless devices, such as 2.4 GHz cordless telephones and Bluetooth devices.
  • Try changing your wireless channel. Wireless routers and gateways can broadcast on different channels and one channel might be clearer than another. See your hardware documentation for help changing wireless channels.
  • Add a wireless repeater to extend your wireless network range. You can boost your signal strength by placing a wireless repeater halfway between your router or gateway and your console.
  • Add an Xbox 360 Wireless N Networking Adapter.
  • Switch wireless signal bands. If you have a dual-band router and an external wireless adapter, try switching the router to a wireless protocol that transmits on the 5 GHz band (wireless protocol A or N). Please see your hardware documentation for help with changing the wireless protocol.
  • Switch to a cable.

Constant disconnection from internet


Yoy may want to look into changing the channel that it is broad casting on. Most routers have 1-11 channels that you can select to avoid others that are broadcasting on the same channels. Also Wireless telephones, microwave ovens, etc. operate at near thye frequencies of some of the channels and may interfer, thus causing dropped signals. Go into your set up and select a channel other than the default 11, maybe? or another until you correct the problem.

HI ..,
The router would drop the wireless signals if you have any cordless phone,microwave.. .. so keep the router a little far away from the kitchen and wireless devices .. or else you can try changing the wireless channel to no 11 or 9 or 6 are the best wireless channel below is the steps

Wireless routers can broadcast on several different channels, similar to the way radio stations use different channels. In the United States and Canada, the three main channels are 1, 6, and 11. There are more channels on the router, but they "overlap." Similar to how you'll hear interference on one radio station while another is perfectly clear, sometimes one wireless channel is clearer than others. You don't need to change your computer's configuration, because it automatically detects the router's new channel.
In order for a wireless device to connect to a wireless network, it must know the network name, or SSID (service set identifier). If you plug your wireless router or access point in and leave the default SSID, it won't take long for an attacker to determine what the SSID is.
To change your channel and SSID:

  1. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports on the router.

  2. Open a web browser on the computer.
  3. In the address bar of the web browser, type http://192.168.2.1 and press Enter on your keyboard.
  4. Click Login in the upper right-hand corner of the page. The router does not ship with a password, so just click Submit.

  5. Click on "Channel and SSID" in the left-hand column under the Wireless heading.
    channel_ssid.jpg
  6. The router may be set to auto for the channel selection. This means that the first time the router is powered on, it will automatically select the channel that has the least amount of interference. As surrounding networks are added, the initial channel may become crowded. Use the drop-down list and select a new channel for your router.
    Note: Channels 1, 6, or 11 are the best selections.

  7. After setting the channel, select the SSID box by clicking in it.

  8. Type a name that is familiar to you. This is the name of the wireless signal on which your router will broadcast.
  9. Once these changes have been made, click the "Apply Changes" button toward the bottom of the screen.

My router (d-link WBR-1310) keeps dropping internet every 10-15


Try to access the configuration page of your router and look for channel number. Change the channel number to 11 or 13 whichever is available. It should work fine after that. If it still does not work, you can hard reset it by pressing the reset switch on the router. However, then, you will have to configure all the settings again.

I need to change the channel on my dlink 625 router..can u help?


I presume it's a cordless phone? If so, it's possible that it's interfering with the wireless signal. If that happens you will see the wireless connection being dropped - go into the wifi config utility and check how good the connection is. If this is the case, changing the channel may help. To do that,bring the router over to your PC and connect with an ethernet cable (just in case something goes wrong with the channel change and you lose the wireless signal.).

You need to find the "router homepage" in your web browser. If you don't know what it is, in windows click start -> run -> type "cmd" and press enter. In the command screen that pops up type "ipconfig" and press enter. It'll show you a few things. One should say "Default Gateway" followed by numbers.Write those numbers down (probably will be something like 192.168.1.254).

Open your web browser (IE, Firefox etc...) and enter the numbers. This will bring you to the router page. There should be an option like "Wireless" and under there you should see "change channel". It may be in the advanced option window.


IF your computer is NOT dropping the wireless signal when the phone rings, but the internet connection does drop - check the DSL signal light on your dlink. If it is flashing or not on, then the problem is with the DSL filters (small white connectors sent with your modem.). Always ensure any phone on the same line as the DSL is filtered or it will cause the internet connection to drop whenever the phone rings or is picked up.
