I have an acer 7720 that continues to disconnect from the internet and does not re-connect without re-booting the computer.


Try changing the channel of your router. Default channel settings often interfere with cordless telephones, even your neighbors phone... Try channel 11.

I have a belkin router, cordless phone interferce


cordless phones and wireless routers transmit on the same frequency. Move the router away from the cordless phone if it's near, if not try changing the channel on your belkin router

Now if your WIRELESS connection drops, when the phone rings it's usually because of this:

You have a cordless phone in your house that is using the same channel as your wireless router. Now routers are generally quite different so there's no one way to fix this. Just look up your make and model of modem on Google and find out how to change the channel on your modem. It's pretty straight forward and not very time consuming to fix.
Also one thing to note is that you shouldn't automatically jump to the highest channel that you can because your wireless card may not be able to go that high.

Belkin f5d8635-4 Router connection problems


Open the working pc open internet explorer and type 192.168.1.2 in the webaddress bar. this will open your belkin router settings page. On the left choose channel and ssid. If it asks for a password leave the password box empty and just click submit. The channel is the frequency your wireless network operates on. Some channels are more stable than others, but its just trial and error until you find the most stable for your area. Change your wireless channel to a different one (any channel is fine, personally 1,11 or 8 works best for me) and click apply changes. Hope this helps.

Wireless MADNESS!


Hello M.,

It appears that this is an annoying problem for you. Here is the deal: it is typically cordless phones that mess up the connection. By default, routers are set to a LOWER CHANNEL. Grab the manual and access your router's settings and navigate to the wireless section. Find the channel setting and pick one of the highest one (think like channel 11). and presto,reliable connection...

ALSO, be certain to invoke security on the wireless connection.

Lose internet connection when phone is in use


Your cordless and wireless mode is running on same frequency.

You can do couple of things...use the wireless mode in b instead of g in the router.

Else use a different cordless phone which runs in 5.8 or 6.0 frequency.

Hope this helps.

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.

Losing connection


When the phone is ringing or in use, it is interupting the router signal. You should be able to avoid any interference with your router by changing the channel on your phone. If that doesn't help, you'll have to go thru the router setting and change the channel on the router. Try the phone though, thats the easiest fix. Good Luck to you!
