Melisa,

Have you installed any new anti virus programs, specifically ones with a firewall? If not, first try disconnecting your laptop then reconnecting, If this does not work, then it is possible your computer may have a virus. You will need to do a system recovery (if running XP or Vista), this is usually located during boot or in the start menu under all programs. Another option is to click on Start, All Programs, Accessories, System tools, system restore. Choose the restore point and your system will be restored to the condition it was in at that date.

Please let me know what happens, so that I may assist you in the future.

My wireless router modem wireless signal keep disconnecting


Assuming it has been running well in the past, it is likely there is some interference coming from another wireless source, most likely a cordless phone that you may have recently acquired.

Try to re-initialise the modem and see if there is any difference.

Remove the neighbor's network from the preferred network list.
add your own network in the list. If your router is old router then upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
You have connected your laptop to the router, to secure the wireless network. When you connect the laptop to the router, make sure that the wireless network connection will be disabled.
Once you change the wireless settings, enable the wireless connection and connect to your network.

Belkin Router Signal Weak


Wireless configurations are tempermental over larger distances. Some routers do have the ability to increase the signal strength to over come this, but a good location is key.

The more obsticals in the way the slower the connection will become. Closed doors, being buried under books, underneath desks, can all cause the signal to come through a slower speeds to compensate.

Make sure your router is in an elevated location to help with a less blocked signal.

Are you using a Wireless-N adapter on your computer? If not, you might need an extender because Wireless-G does not have the same range as -N.

With the model number of your Belkin router I might be able to assist more.

Belkin wireless router disconnects from wildblue every 2 min


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 Belkin wireless router away from walls and if possible move the wireless router higher up.
2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? Ie. changes the default password, setup encryption use WAP2 or WAP, change the default SSID, turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows 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, ard 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 and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize the interference with your wireless router from the wireless routers and access points in your area.

Networking


You actually have a couple of issues here. Fix these in this order. 1.) Login to router and turn off wireless (if you're not wanting to use wireless) 2.) Connect the ADSL modem CAT5 port to the WAN port of the Belkin router. 3.) Login to router and turn on NAT and make sure DHCP is enabled. 4.) On your Windows machine turn on DHCP under the network settings. This should allow your connection to be setup automatically and stop wireless access on the Belkin router. Let me know if you need more help. JC
