Question about Buffalo Technology AirStation WBR2-G54S (747464109220) Router

1 Answer

Browsers keep disconnecting

On multiple computers and on both Firefox and IE, the browser keeps timing out. It goes out in random intervals but as quickly as every 5 minutes and as long as several hours. To fix it, I have to right click on the icon in the system tray and "repair" the wireless network. It only takes a few seconds, but it's driving me nuts. Interestingly, the other Internet utilities such as AIM, MSN Messenger and Mozy don't seem to have any problems. Only the browsers are affected. The phones, which get the line before the Buffalo browser, have no problems. The wireless router is in close proximity to (i) a Vonage box that drives 2 cordless telephones, one at 2.4 ghz and one at 5.8 ghz (ii) a Samsung laser printer with a Linksys wireless print server, and (iii) a HP all in one printer. I installed the updated drivers from Buffalo. I wonder if it could be that the 2.4 ghz phone is causing interference, but can I somehow change the channel on the wireless router? Also, why would it just affect the browsers? Very strange! I think it's the router, but I am not 100% sure.

First of all, make sure that your router is set to an idle time of zero in the connection menu, as inactivity can make the router disconnect from the net. Secondly, ensure that you have no corrupt temp files and cookies, use this excellent free programme to clear any temp files and redundant system files. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ You can also alter the channel that your router works on to(from 1 to 11) see if that stops it as it may be interfering with the phones on the 2.4mhz channel. You can also check in your router that it's not your isp by looking at the dns primary and secondary servers and the isp gateway, if there is nothing other than noughts in any of these settings, your isp may be at fault.

How can I get my past history

Internet History on a Computer
Web browsers keep an internal record of the websites you visit.
This history also called a cache makes future access of websites easier because some of the data is already loaded in your computer.
Internet history is also useful to look through when you cannot remember the name of an important website you visited.
The creators of the big three Web browsers as of the time of publication Internet Explorer, Firefox and Chrome make viewing your browsing history simple.

Open an Internet Explorer window.
Press "Ctrl" and "H," or click the star to the left of the browser tabs and press "History."

Click on the day, week or month you wish to view. Internet Explorer will keep your Web history until you clear the cache.

Mozilla Firefox

Open Firefox.

Click the "History" drop-down menu.

Select "Show All History."

Locate the day, week or month of the Firefox history you wish to view.
The dialog box will show all history since you last cleared your "History" cache.

Google Chrome

Open a Google Chrome browser.

Click the wrench icon located on the toolbar.

Click "History."
Google Chrome will display all of the websites you have visited within the past 10 weeks. However, websites you viewed in "Incognito" mode or secure pages will not be displayed.

Yahoo email website keeps crashing.


Online emailing uses very complex coding and some browsers can get confused. Have you installed any add-ons recently? This could be the cause, otherwise the best option is probably to try another browser such as Firefox, IE, Chrome, Opera etc.

Well the network adapters don't have anything to do with IE and FireFox. Those programs got corrupted for some reason. Best thing to do is go to microsoft website and download a fresh IE and then find firefox website and reload...

Good luck..pls rate.

Firefox or IE I've been using IE for ever, lately I've been hearing a lot about Firefox, and thought I might try it, what are the main advantages of Firefox, over IE? What do you prefer Firefox or IE?...

The user interface on the two browser is very similar.

Firefox is considered 'more powerful' because is more customisable, and you can download many extensions, that are plugins with many functions.

Firefox suffer less from virus problem, as there are more viruses designed to attack IE, however majority of viruses do not make any difference between IE, Firefox, Opera etc.

Internet explorer is more unstable and crashes more easily.

Sometimes new plugins (extension) can make Firefox slower.

Sometimes new download updates can make IE slower.

The two browsers are both good, and both work fine on most situation. I personally use Firefox, as it gives me less troubles with Windows.

My suggestion is : download and install Firefox, if you do not like it, then switch back to IE.

You can use both browsers at the same time.
