    Netgear wpn 824. (modem then router then wifi) Hangs repeatedly. sometimes/usually also hangs the ethernet connected desktop. Always fixed by power down and reconnect router. Happens in same spot - good signal no known interferences. no other networks in neighbourhood etc. Might be be to do withthe type of traffic - hung 3 times while trying to download windows sp3 for xp. Often happens in google maps if trying to zoom in. Has happened  elsewhere (BBC website a problem) . Netgear tell us how to fix it but not how to prevent it happening again. ( Though they were at one point doing a survey of this problem in the San Francisco Bay area.)

You may want to make sure the cord is in good condition, or that the router is in a higher spot such as next to your computer on top of your desk. If This still doesn't work then try reseting it or replace it.

Tip

If your wireless connection drops every 20-30 mins


I suggest that you use the NIC own application software to connect to your internet gateway (router) I have helped many people who have had this type of problem.

I first had problems with a INPROCOMM WLAN with a SKY Sagem Router it would drop out or go to 1MB connection and sometimes loose the 54g signal all together. After a restart sometimes the laptop would not find the profile and no connection was made.

As soon as I disabled the WZCSVC Windows Service (Wireless Zero Configuration that provides automatic configuration for the 802.11 adapters) as it is designed to search for new routers every 20-30 mins this had to be my problem they appeared to contradict each other.

As soon as I disabled this service all my problems stopped, incidently if you have a Desktop with an Ethernet LAN 100MB connection if this service running is it useless and also takes some processor power even when it is not needed so just use the DISABLE_WZCSVC tweak anyway.

Best of Luck !!

How do I connect it to a motorola 2210 modem


This FAQ is for configuring a BellSouth supplied Motorola/Netopia 2210-02-1006 with a generic third-party router that isn't specifically covered in the existing FAQs. If you have a router that is covered in the FAQs, I suggest you use that FAQ. This initial setup is all that is needed to configure and connect your generic router based network for FastAccess DSL. Any additional setup for features like DHCP IP ranges, port triggering, etc is out of the scope of this FAQ.

This FAQ has 4 Major sections:
Section 1 - Overview
Section 2 - Motorola/Netopia 2210 modem configuration
Section 3 - Third party router configuration information
Section 4 - Connections and power up

Section 1 - Overview
•The best configuration for networking a router with the Motorola 2210 is to set the 2210 to "Bridged Ethernet" mode and allow the third-party router to do the routing and DHCP functions. The 2210 is also a router with full DHCP functions and may not function correctly when connected directly to another router. Not changing the modem to Bridged Ethernet will result in double NAT'ing, increased latency, possible IP conflicts, or possibly a network that doesn't work at all.
Before proceeding both the 2210 modem and third-party router must be reset to default. Despite what the help desk tech tells you, resetting the modem does not put it into Bridged Mode.
• The BellSouth Installation CD and Connection Manager are not required to use this configuration.
• The third-party Installation Wizard CD should not be used in this configuration.
• Since BellSouth assigns static IPs via your username the configurations shown are applicable to both dynamic and single static IP customers.
• You must connect the 2210 directly to the computer's NIC to make the necessary changes before you connect the router, because you will probably be unable to access the modem interface after you connect the router. The reason is that the modem interface is 192.168.1.254 which is a local IP. By default, most routers do not have the capability to route a local IP out of their WAN port (where the 2210 is connected). Additionally, they may be on completely different subnets. After you have made the changes to the 2210 you can then connect the router and configure it for use with FastAccess. There are several alternatives around this problem. One method involves extra equipment (second NIC and a hub) and major configuration changes. The second method requires you to utilize the router as a simple switch and use the 2210's PPPoE and DHCP functions. Click here for more information.
•If you encounter any problems simply reset the 2210, connect it directly to your NIC, restart your computer, log into the interface, and start over again.

Section 2 ? Motorola 2210 Configuration
bred.gifStep 1
Verify that NIC cards (wireless or wired) are set to "Obtain IP Address Automatically". Completely power down the 2210 and the computer(s). Power up the modem and press the reset button on the back of the modem. After the modem has fully initialized connect the 2210 to the NIC and then power up the computer.

bred.gifStep 2
Open a browser session and enter "192.168.1.254" in the address field to access the 2210 GUI interface.

bred.gifStep 3
Enter your BellSouth Username followed by "@bellsouth.net" in the User ID field. Enter your BellSouth Password in the Password field. Re-enter your BellSouth Password in the Confirm Password field. Click on Next. Update the Auto Calender Update Configuration as desired and click Next. The modem will try to initiate a session and then return to the main menu.

bred.gifStep 4
Click on Broadband DSL Line from the top menu. Click on Configure Connection from the right menu. Select "Bridged Ethernet" from the Protocol pull down. Click on Save and restart the connection at the bottom. This will automatically restart the modem and the interface will return after the changes are saved. Note: functions like NAT, DHCP, IP Passthrough, and username and password will be disabled or irrelevant and can not be selected. After the modem has restarted, power down both the computer and the modem then physically disconnect the 2210.

Section 3 - Third-Party Router Information
bred.gifStep 5
After the PC is powered down connect one of the router LAN ports to the computer NIC and power up the third-party router and then the computer.

bred.gifStep 6
Open a browser session to access the router interface as per the router's user guide. Even though the interface will vary from router to router you must use the following configurations as a basic rule:
- Select Obtain an IP address automatically. Important Note: Use Obtain an IP address automatically even if you ordered a static IP.
- Select PPPoE connectivity. Do not select any other choice, even if you have a static IP.
- Enter your BellSouth Username followed by "@bellsouth.net"
- Enter your BellSouth Password
- Select "Keep Alive" or "Always On" (if available)
- Set "Maximum Idle Time" to "0" which is similar to "keep alive" and "always on" (if available)
- Select a redial or reconnect period of "180 Seconds" (if available)
- Enter "1492" in the MTU Field (if available)
- Save your settings (which will probably restart your router)

Section 4 - Connections and Power Up
bred.gifStep 7
Power everything down and physically connect the 2210, wired or wireless router, and any computer(s).

bred.gifStep 8
Power up the network equipment in this order:
1) Motorola 2210 Modem (wait for DSL synch)
2) Third-party Router
3) Computer(s)
Open a browser session and go surfing!

bred.gifImportant Additional Information
•The 2210 has an "Internet" light that is green whenever there is an active PPPoE session initiated by the Motorola. Since you are using the Netgear to establish the PPPoE session the light will stay off. This is normal.
•You should check your tweak settings to optimize your new network. Reminder: If you are required to change your MTU, make sure that it is identical on all equipment (PCs and routers) in the network.

bred.gifCool Stuff
An online, html-based menu simulator program is available here. The simulator recreates the Motorola 2210 user interface and provides the ability to navigate menus; just like the real modem interface. It is for simulation purposes only and will not make any changes to your actual modem.

DHCP address


I would start by resetting it to default settings and re-configuring the router. Oftentimes that is all that is needed to fix the problem. If not invest in a new router.

Router is connected to internet but laptop drops connection every couple of pages visited. power cycle doesn't fix it restoring factory settings fixes it for a min so does resetting the router but nothing...


I just replace one just like that at a friends house. Her router was bad. Kept loosing connection. It can be one of two things, The router is giving out are your network card is giving out. But I am promp to say it is the router. Do you know rhe IP address for the router and the password. If you have reset it to factory default the password is root and the user id admin. Try to reset it from within. The Factory IP is 192.168.1.1.

Good Luck Darren

You can also open run and type CMD and when the black screen comes up type( ping google.com -t ) and see if you are loosing a lot of packet. You will see what I mean when you type it in...

Linksys WRT54G2 V1signal drops out once every 24 hrs


Download a free tool called Netstumbler (Netstumbler.com) and perform a wireless sniff for surrounding access points possibly generating a stronger signal and knocking yours out. If you find one any that have an SNR that is close or stronger (closer to 0) than yours then change your access point to a channel that is different from them but limit your choices to 1, 6 or 11.

Another possbility is a 2.4Ghz cordless phone killing your signal.

Wireless network broken, access to WRT54G & Motorola 2210-02 via http.. denied


I have att yahoo dsl which I installed about a year ago. The process required bridging the ADSL Modem (in my case a speedstream 4100) and accepting dynamic IP addresses and configuring PPPoE on the WAN side of my Linksys router. The ATT support person walked me through the entire process over the phone even though I was comfortable with making the Linksys configuration changes as I had to do the same in China without technical support. The modem configuration was no more difficult than the router configuration as it was performed from a web browser too. The biggest warning was that to reverse the modem change (if desired) required use of a reset button because the web interface was disabled as a result of the configuration change. My advice to you especially if you are willing to attach the Linksys router to the telco modem is to contact the ATT highspeed DSL support line and see if they will walk you through it like they walked me through it. Reviewing your Linksys User's Guide and understanding the configuration of that device would probably be appreciated by the ATT Support person as well as assuring you can access the Linksys router to configure it during the call.
