Are you certain it is your router that is causing the problems? often times a settings issue from windows. Check to see if the following solution will help your problem. (i posted this solution a little while ago on a similar problem)

"If possible, please do more than just "disable" your firewall. stop it and close it out all together and try again.

worst case scenario. you can go to the link below and use the microsoft updater to get all of your updates. If completely turning off your firewall does not work i would recommend doing this at least once since it should give you the latest updates for your system and may potentially fix the problem without any further intervention on your part.
Click here for microsoft updater.

The microsoft updater is actually a good tool to use anyways since it will give you the latest updates to all of your microsoft programs.

hope this helps you out, and please don't forget to rate my solution"

My belkin N router always disconnects on the internet. im sure its not a modem issue coz when i try to restart my router its connected again to the internet. my belkin router model is f5d8233-4v3....

Disconnections are generally relative to the Internet Provider and Speed. If the speed drops, the router can disconnect and reboots. Just make certain you always update all drivers and especially if you are in Windows, keep up with current updates. Check your device drivers and do update from there also.

Hi i am getting an error message clinkn connect can't discover router. please check the cable connection and make sure the router is powered on

This could be a cable fault.You can buy simple cable checkers at aPC store.If this isn't faulty,try uninstalling and then reinstalling the disc that came with it or going to device manager clicking on modems and seeing if your router is there if it is right click on to it and click update driver.RESTART THE COMPUTER.
If this didn't fix it,try unistalling the modem from device manager restart the computer and the windows system will try to find a driver for the modem.Or you could try searching for the driver in browse when you update the driver.IT GETS COMPLICATED I KNOW I'VE DONE IT THOUSANDS OF TIMES.WINDOWS 7 IS A GOOD OPERATING SYSTEM THAT FINDS DRIVERS AUTOMATICALLY FOR YOU.

Netgear MR814 and windows 7 issues

There shouldn't be any issues with the router as a result of Windows 7. The Router does not interact with the computer in such a way as to cause incompatibility like with hardware or software.
That said, what could be causing issues may be out of date WiFi card drivers. Windows 7 has an incredible driver database and I have only come across a handful of things it doesn't detect. But sometimes even with the things it does pick up, a better driver is available.

You should run Windows Update by going to Start (2252758.gif), All Programs, and then Windows Update. If not already set up, you should click change settings on the left and make sure all recommended updates are received like important updates. This way you will get all updates available, including hardware updates.

If this does not seem to improve the situation I will be posting a How To on properly configuring your Netgear router. This will ensure your settings are set to their most optimal settings.

Good Luck,

We have a 2 wire gateway through the past week it has really been acting contineously resets itself and our internet much so that i cant even stay logged into yahoo...

A couple of troubleshooting things you can do yourself:

  • Reset all networking equipment. This includes any routers, modems, computers, and laptops connected. For the routers & modems simply unplug them for 30 seconds and plug them back in. For the computers, do a restart.

  • Update all of your computers with the latest Windows Updates. For Windows XP, goto . For Windows Vista, goto "All Programs" >> "Windows Update"
If you are still experiencing trouble, your best bet is to contact your ISP and let them troubleshoot the issue. The reason for this is they can tell if the issue is internally (on your end) or externally (on there end).

Ongoing lost connections

before you update firmware, make sure you understand what the update is fixing. any firmware update will also set your router back to default settings, and will have to be set back to your personal network settings (hope you wrote these down, or printed the pages).

you say the desktop is hard wired to the cable modem? i'm confused. the cable modem gets its signal from the coaxial cable that comes out of the wall, and into the modem. the ethernet cable should then be connected to the wan port on the wireless router. i would be nterested to know exactly how everything is wired. it should be like i just explained. if not, please inform.

  • You need to check your firewall settings. Do you have more than one ( and mcafee)?
  • If so I would turn one of them off (I had the problem with a demo norton (symantec) trial version that was later deleted incorrectly.It had a left over firewall setting that somehow still blocked access to MS updates (and other server access too.) But I could still access the internet in general.
  • Had to get the symantec removal kit (going in in safe-mode with internet connection). Also could have reloaded the trial and removed properly (with its own utility and not the MS remove software route).

Gateway Reboots Constantly

many times, updating the firmware of the router fixes that kind of problems or resetting it to the factory settings. you can download firmwares from 2wire site and the in the router settings windows update the firmware.
