I have had many D-Link routers fail ova the years and they all seem to start off just as ya describe , then go toes up... after a bit. Of course B4 getting another unit, one must first re-install all drivers, check all cords, cables etc. just to rule out anything else. Then get a nice new modern one :)

IPSec Disconnected oftenly and cant login into Router


Sounds like a factory reset on the router will fix it and start new and everything should work again.

The router drops out every 15 to 30 minutes and must be reset by removing the power and re-connecting. What should I do?


Hello,
There are many reasons why this might be happening.. You could try the following steps..
1) Disconnect the power from router for a minute and reconnect and check. 2) Try changing the wireless channel and Network name and try re-connecting. 3) Check if there is an firmware update for your product and update if any update is available. 4) If none of the above steps work you will need to reset(a small button or hole at the back or base) and re-config your router. ( For that you need the CD given with the router and you will need the ISP settings.)
Hope this helped

My belkin wont keep connection


1. Powercycle your equipment (unplug the power to your router and your modem)
2. Wait 15 seconds then plug equipment back in.
3.If your Modem runs off signal from a tower try and get more signal simply by moving modem closer to a window.
4.Check your connections to the modem and to the router, ensure the wires are plugged all the way in.
5.Using your wireless signal from your computer pc or laptop ensure you have sufficient signal you may have to move closer to the router, once in a while you will be to far from your router to have a good connection.
6. Make sure the ventilation slots on modem and router are not blocked.
7.Check to see how far your modem is away from any electrical equipment your modem should be away at least 3 feet away.
8. If you are able to keep connection directly plugged into your modem from your computer most likely there is an issue with the router, In this case you can always reset your router there may be a configuration error in your router, To reset simply press and hold reset button on the back of the router for approximately 15 seconds or until router restarts, Caution by resetting your router will reset back to factory default and your router will be unsecure once again.
9. When your are disconnected from the internet make sure that the Connection itself isnt still connected if your connection itself is connected and you are unable to get online you may need to renew your ip address. usually your ip address automatically renew's once the router and modem have been powercycled (unplugged and plugged back in) however you may need to manually renew your ip.
10.Windows Xp: Start/Run/CMD and press ok
A.Type ipconfig /release
B.Type ipconfig /renew
Windows Vista/7 Start/All Programs/Accessories/Right click on command prompt and hit run as administrator.
A.Type ipconfig /release
B.Type ipconfig /renew then restart your computer
If you are a Mac user:Here is a link to show you how to renew http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1920 If your continue to get disconnected contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) Check and ensure that it is not an issue on there end

Internet disconnection


I think the problem would be the over use of the modem, try turning it off when noone is using.

PC disconnects from Internet


pls check if there any virus becoz this could happen due to some heavy virus downloads or distruption. Update your anti virus software properly. There are so many viruses and Worms which can distrupt your wireless internet.
Secondly, your wireless configration software has been corrupted. pls re-install it.

Loosing wireless connection


It sounds to me like your wi-fi client might be affected by some sort of timeout or overload type kick. Is it just the PC or both the PC and the Xbox?

By "timeout" this could be your "IP Lease" that is too short (look in your ADSL PPP/PPOE configuration)
Otherwise would you be using any P2P software? If so you might want to look in the settings for something called MTU. Set this to something like 1500 then if that doesn't do it reduce it to 1492.

The only other thing I can think of is that your pc might be having authentication problems. Degrade your wi-fi security (go from WPA to WEP) and test to see if that makes any improvements.
