Try to turn off & power back on the router for 60secs. If this doesnt work, reset the router using the reset button at the back of it. If it still doesnt work, youll have to contact your Internet provider, & tell them that you have an Intermittent Connection Problem.

Canon IR 2520 lost IP address


This is regular feature. Nothing defective here.

IP address is to communicate with the router on wire or wireless.

Dynamic IP address will assigned to your printer again when re-connected and will be lost when disconnected.
Static IP address assigned will be reserved at the router for the device even when the device is disconnected.

I have wildblue and my connection will not consistently connect . It freezes up the computer running xp wireless router is WNR854T


With wireless connections, there are at times brief disconnects. If you set your computer's ip address to a fixed value, this may help the problem. With a DHCP connection (not fixed) you could be getting a different address after one of the temporary disconnects causing the hang. Go to control panel, network connections, properties, then scroll down the window to the tcp/ip line , highlight it, then click the properties button. In the properties, click the use ip address button, enter a fixed ip address. If you are using a standard home address system, use 192.168.1.10 (if you have more than one computer, make sure each address is unique). subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, gateway is your router ip address, typically 192.168.1.1. Check your router information to be sure. You can use your router ip for the DNS server ip. If that does not work, check the DNS address provided in your router settings. Save all the settings.

See how that works, if it works, please leave feedback.

Good Luck

Can you get a different ip address for a laptop that connects wirelessly through an Airport Extreme router?


Sure all you have to do is go to ipcomfig re;ease your ip addresses and renew. Once you do this the router should assign a different ip address.

Let me know if you have any problems.

You may have an IP conflict. Renew the IP on both the Sonys
At a command prompt,
ipconfig /release
it will come back with all zeros

ipconfig /renew
It should pick up a new IP address.


Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router: place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the router may cause conflict with other routers within your network range. Recommend changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Connection problems


Check the "keep alive" settings in your router, there is usually a choice between having it constantly "pinging" to keep the connection open, or letting it disconnect when it has been idle for awhile. Make sure it is set to "keep alive". The wording may be different but it will be something along these lines. Go in your browser to the wireless router's configuration page (i.e. http://192.168.1.1 ). Depending on what brand router you have this ip address will vary, consult your documentation for which number is used.

LAN problem between Belkin modem and P5P800-VM MoBo


When you connect the pc to the router does the port number where that pc is connected is there any light on it? if there is check the IP address of the pc.
Click Start>RUN>type CMD click OK>type ipconfig on the command prompt if it says disconnected try changing the ethernet cable.
If you already receive a IP address that's good then try getting online.

Laptop keeps disconnecting then connecting every so often.


Has the computer ever stayed on long enough to connect to the internet?

Is there a wired computer working when attached to the router?

If not, if possible please try to connect the laptop wired to the router as a test and tell me if it works.

I am trying to determine if your router works with the internet before considering the wireless connection simplying the initial problem. Once the router works wired is time to try the wireless. Once the wireless works unsecured you may want to change the router and wireless adapter to secure the wireless network. So this can be a three step process.
