    i realized that on the status page of the router config, it changes from disconnect status to connected. this happens at random and it doesn't always reconnect automatically.
    any suggestions?

This problem can happen either when your ISP is having a server problem and changes their WAN IP address to alter your speed, or the speed that they are syncing your line at is too fast for it to handle and therefore will keep dropping the ADSL signal until the line itself balances the speed out over a 24 hour period, the same can apply with cable.

Hi, The easiest way would would be to install a DSL line in the APT and connect direct. Have you got the correct WEP key to the wireless networks? Do you ever have a warning that you are connected with limited connectivity or acquiring address takes ages? If so, you may be attempting to connect to a network with the wrong key. In addition, it may even show you are connected, yet you cannot access pages. Have you ever succeeded in connecting properly?
Please provide answers and I will try to help some more. Regards, Icom1

Router troubleshooting:
It is a good idea to disconnect the power to your router for at least 30 seconds every few weeks. You should also do this to any hubs/switches between your computers and the router. Logon to router and try to set the MTU to 1492. Make sure only have one router between you and the Internet. Many ISP's refer to bridges and routers as modems so it is hard to tell. If your router connects to "modem" to access the Internet try connecting your computer directly to the "modem". If that works better then you have multiple routers "Natting". (Google: double nat) Finally, try a different router.
Computer troubleshooting:
Scan your computer for problems using Install all available "messenger" updates and fixes. If you are referring to Windows Messenger it has been replaced with Windows Live Messenger which is a free download. (Google: Windows Live Messenger)

I recommend that you start with the easiest recommendation to follow and, if necessary, continue to the next easiest. Don't try to do everything at once.

Describe your cannot connect my cga5722 wireless

well you need to reset your router wireless config, your isp dont do this, you need to config yourself, but i give some help. try these manual steps:
4.1 Log on the webpages
Open your Internet Browser
Enter in the address field
Click on GO
• The following webpage will be displayed
The only default language is English.
To access the required webpage, click on the corresponding tab on
the left side of the page.
Webpages’ menu structure
The table below describes the menu tree of the webpages.
4.3 ADSL/Internet Settings webpages
4.3.1 ADSL status
Click on "ADSL Status" which is located on the left side of the screen.
SET UP WIZARD Getting started
Wireless settings
ADSL settings
The ADSL Wireless Base Station also operates as a wireless access
point, allowing wireless computers to communicate with each other. To
configure this function, you need to enable the wireless function, define
the radio channel, the domain identifier, and the security options.
Check Enable and click "SAVE SETTINGS".
You must specify a common radio channel and SSID (Service Set ID) to
be used by the ADSL Wireless Base Station and all of its wireless clients.
Make sure you configure all of its clients to the same values.
Access Control allows users to define the outgoing traffic permitted or
not-permitted through the WAN interface. The default is to permit all
outgoing traffic.
If the signal strength of a single wireless base station is not sufficient due
to a large coverage area or attenuation due to walls, with WDS the
range of a wireless base station can be extended.
All base stations in a Wireless Distribution System must be configured
with the same radio channel, and encryption type (WEP/WPA) if that is

Connect the AP or wireless router to your network.
Configure the AP/router to use encryption
Get a client adapter for your client device, and configure it to connect to your network.

That's it in a nutshell.
