Question about NetGear MR814 Wireless Router
I have no problem logging onto the internet using my MR814 router, and I have no problem logging on from both my desktop and my laptop, both wirelessly. The problem comes about 15 - 30 minutes after I'm online. My internet connect will just drop. I have to unplug the router, plug it back in, and it will work for another 15 - 30 minutes. Is there a way to prevent this from happening? I am connecting to Verizon DSL. When I had internet access through the cable company, I was told by their tech support that their system changes the IP address every 15 - 30 minutes and apparently my router would not renew the IP address. Is there a way to make it do this, or is that not the problem at all? Thank you!
A wireless router if set at enable DHCP will always asign an IP address to each pc, and keep it, it will not alter until the next time your connected, and even if the first pc that you connected with, first next time, it will get the same ip address allocation. The solution may be that your router is set to disconnect from the internet after a period of innactivity. Go into router settings and look for something similair to (Idle connection-Never).
