NetGear Wireless Router - continous internet connection drops
I am having the issue with my wireless router of the internet connection dropping repeatedly. It comes on, connects no problem then every few minutes all the light on the router light up and the internet connection is lost, it reconnect but I have to do the same on the laptop. Spent time with NetGear technical support last night and have the latest firmware now, but I think it was still dropping the connection after that.
If you upgraded the software but still the connecitons is droping then contact the ISP (the internet service provider ), Because it is possible that they have something wrong thier side,,,THIS ISSUE IS KNOWN AS INTERMITTENT SYNC OR ROUTE,,, check the lights on your router , when the internet goes down which light changes,,,
and once you confirm that the problem is not with your ISP then you need to purchase a new router,

Hi If the Internet connection frequently drops, It could be wired or wireless. If it is wired connection u can try the following troubleshooting steps 1) connect Modem-Router-Computer 2) Open router UI (www.routerlogin.net) 3) User name : admin , Password: password 4) on the left hand side in the blue panel select WAN setup & reduce the MTU to 1400 & click apply. if the problem still continues upgrade the firmware of the router. This should resolve the problem
NOW IF THE WIRELESS CONNECTION DROPS, try the following troubleshooting steps 1) connect Modem-Router-Computer 2) Open router UI (www.routerlogin.net) 3) User name : admin , Password: password 4) on the left hand side in the blue panel select Wireless settings (under Setup) 5) SSID: (user defined) Channnel : 11 or 6 mode : upto 54 mbps or 150 mbps Security : WPA-PSK (TKIP) PASSPHRASE : (user defined) Click apply This should resolve the problem.

If the problem still persists u can try upgrading the drivers of the wireless USB adapter.

yes set the speedstream modem to log in. it is uner advanced, usually 192.168.0.1 address. It is most likely set to "bridged" mode and using the router to login. set login to ppoe on speedstream on one p.c. only 1st. with login ang password filled in and "smart keep alive" on.
Routers are great but they do have issues with distance, or certain walls that can interupt the connections. My suggestion is to have your daughter when she is connected to walk away from the router step by step, and continue this until it drops. This will give you the distance it will work for you. Then either move the router closer to her destination, or you can get another router than can act as a passthrough. The last option is to run ethernet wire everywhere which really defeats the purpose of wireless.
Hi, what ISP are you using (aol,tiscali...?), and how are you connecting to the router? Wired or wireless? I had similar problems with mine, it wouldn't connect or would drop connection, or loose all the settings. I updated the firmware to the latest from here:-
Be sure this is the correct model as firmware differes from model to model.
Then I had to manually configure my ISP settings etc. Or you may have software from your ISP which configures for you.
Hope this helps.
