I have been using three FVS-318's over several years with Windows XP, Windows 2000 Clients and Servers. I experienced different problems with all three of them and some of the issues could be resolved by Netgear, others were not. One of the problems was during Terminal Server sessions, the connection would be dropped. From the inbound, everything seemed to be fine. From outbound, the router was simply not accessible. This sounds very much like your problem, only with different applications. Once I started buying total different routers, all my problems were solved. Please don't stick too long with the FVS-318, however the box looks great. Once my problems were solved, I kissed the 318 goodbye. I'm sorry my repsonse to your problem came so late. I recently discovered this website.

It is possible that you have bad router or defective cables. My company installs LAN (Local Area Network) systems and we fabricate own cables. They test with a specialized tester that you don't have available.
If your router and cables are functional, there is one other quick fix.
The solution I'm suggesting works in my business (LAN installations) about 95% of the time. I trust that it will work for you.
Let's see if I can help you.
Begin by turning on the second computer and your router
? Open Internet Explorer; ? Click on 'Tools'; ? Click on 'Internet Options'; ? Click on 'Connections'; ? Click on 'Setup' ? Click on 'I want to set up my Internet connections manually . . .'; ? Click on 'Next'; ? Click on 'I connect through a local area network (LAN); ? Clock on 'Next' ? Click on 'Next' [This is not an error]; ? Click on 'No'; ? Click on 'Next'; ? Click on 'To connect to the Internet immediately . . .; and, ? Click on 'Finish'.
Try turning off the router for 30 secs, then power it up again.
Then try connecting a LAN cable from the computer to the router and see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you can connect to the Internet then -
With the LAN cable open a browser and type in the configuration URL and check the Wireless settings, then check and/or the wireless card settings (it should have the router's SSID and encryption settings etc.)
Also install the latest wireless card driver.
Then test the wireless and Internet connection. If this doesn't work -
Next connect the computer with a LAN cable to the cable or DSL modem to see if you can connect to the Internet.
If you cannot get an Internet connection with the LAN cable, contact your ISP and get them to test the connection to your modem.
If the modem and Internet is OK and you still cannot get a wireless connection then the problem could be a faulty wireless router.
IF THE WIRELESS CONNECTION DROPS, try the following troubleshooting steps
1) connect Modem-Router-Computer
2) Open router UI (www.routerlogin.net)
3) User name : admin , Password: password
4) on the left hand side in the blue panel select Wireless settings (under Setup)
5) SSID: (user defined)
Channnel : 11 or 6
mode : upto 54 mbps or 150 mbps
Security : WPA-PSK (TKIP)
PASSPHRASE : (user defined)
This should resolve the problem.
If the problem still persists u can try upgrading the drivers of the wireless USB adapter.

If you are using LAN cable from your ISP. Try to connect it to your Computer LAN port directly or how you connect directly your internet connection from your computer without the router. Then on your system tray try to look the internet icon activity usually a two monitor icon. Right click on there. Then select status,then support, then details, from there see the DNS number you may get two DNS numbers set then put that manually to your wireless lan settings.
Hi Friend, Before Connecting your internet we must check in ur system.
1.Go to Start---->Run------>type cmd----->in the black screen type ping 127.0.0.1 2.check wither its getting reply or request 3.If u are getting reply then ur system is perfect i.e., your NIC Card is installed properly. 4.check wither any proxy is enabled in the LAN settings. go to browser--->tools---->internet options(Options)----->Connection--->Lan Setting--->there should noy be any tick mark in the boxes
Now we can check the connectivity, 1.Connect the PC from the Router Lan Port and the modem connectivity to the Wan Port of the Router. 2.Assign the Ip address as obtain ip address automatically
Right click networkplaces--->properties--->Lan Connection Properties---->double click the internet protocol(Tcp/IP).In the next box u must select the Obtain Ip address automatically
3.Now u switch on the modem after 30 sec switch on the Router. 4. Launch your web browser. 5 Type "192.168.1.1" as the URL. 6For administrator access enter the default admin password 1234 to configure the wizards and the advanced features. 7 Click Login to proceed to a screen asking you to change your password or click Cancel to revert to the default password. 8 If you entered the admin password, it is highly recommended you change the default admin password! Enter a new password between 1 and 30 characters, retype it to 9.Then u can configure the ip address
Try changing the channel that the router uses. This will be a setting in the GUI. I have a Netgear wireless router and if I let the router choose the channel to use, it always chooses the same channel that my cordless phone uses so whenever I use the cordless phone, I get kicked off. You can also try updating the firmware on the router but I'd bet trying a different channel(s) will work.
If you know how to open the setup page of the router, look for MTU. Normally it is set to Auto with default size of 1500. Now set it to manual and change the value to 1463 and save the changes. Power cycle the router by unplugging the power for 30 seconds then plug it back in. Observe your connection if it keeps on dropping.
Another is you need to isolate the problem if its the router or the modem. Try to connect your PC directly to your modem and observe if it does the same thing. If it does the same problem, call your Internet Provider to fix the modem.
If the problem still persist on the router after changing the MTU, try to update the Firmware of the router and hard reset it by pressing the reset button for 15 seconds then power cycle it.
