Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

1 Answer

Laptops lose router signal constantly

We have this router and both our laptops are constantly becoming disconnected from the Internet (even when they are right next to it). There are no cordless phones or microwaves in the vicinity. I even tried changing from "Auto" channel to Channel 1, to no avail. Any tips?

    Thanks -- will give that a try and see how it goes. After reading your suggestion, I searched the Web on the router name and "reset" and sure enough, it appears this particular router requires occasional hard resets. Thank you very much.

Belkin router is getting disconnect in every 2minutes on my tablet pc


How many devices are connected to the wireless? Are you moving about when you lose the signal? Is the wireless Secured? If you have other computers/laptops connected do they lose signal? Many thing will cause loss of a signal, much like a cell phone.

Losing internet connection


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 am trying to connect a wrt150n wireless linksys router to my dsl. I am using a desktop windows 7 and laptop windows vista. Please help, I have tried everything but it just does not want to work.


unplug everything, including ethernet cables. then work in this exact order.
if you get a wireless signal and no internet, plug a computer in into the router in one of the available ports and check for internet. If no internet, unplug everything and test the modem without the router. If internet available without the router, then follow these instructions
  1. plug phone line into modem
  2. plug power into modem
  3. wait for all lights to become steady
  4. plug ethernet cable into modem
  5. plug other end of same cable into port labled "internet"
  6. wait for lights to become constant on both router and modem
  7. check your wireless device for wireless service.
if you dont get a wireless signal at all, plug your device into the rear of the router and type 192.168.1.1 in the adress bar
the password and username are both "admin" or simply leave the password blank if that doesn't work

navigate to the wireless option and turn on the wireless transmiter.
GOOD LUCK AND PLS RATE THIS POST!!!!!!

Wireless routers can operate at the same exact frequency as cordless phones. Try switching to another frequency in the router configuration.

Trendnet router


I know you've heard this many times by now, but disconnecting the power from the router for about 30 seconds then reconnecting power should work. Obviously not. If your Xbox and laptop are doing the same, then it's not a computer problem; we can narrow it down to the router, the modem, or the internet connection itself (whether it be DSL or Cable). You may end up having to throw money at the problem and purchasing a new router. I'd recommend an 802.11n router from Linksys. If you're not willing to shell out money, even if you are, you should really try the Trendnet web site or giving them a call. You may just need to update the firmware. Try starting with Trendnet since the problem can be narrowed down to your router. Please let me know what happens.

Constant disconnect on both laptop and desk top


  • If you bypass the router and connects your computer directly to the your DSL modem, do you have a stable Internet connection in your computer?
  • If you do, you may reset and reconfigure your Belkin router.
  • You may also do a firmware upgrade on your router.

Hope this helps!

Keep losing internet signal


Have you tried updating the firmware of your router? Updating the firmware of the router will fix that issue. Make sure after updating the router's firmware, hard reset the router. To hard reset it, Press the reset button on the back of the router for about 20 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds then plug it back. Reconfigure the wireless settings of the router. Make sure to change the wireless channel of the router to channel 11 or 1 and not 6 to avoid interference.
