I'm on Virgin Media and I have a Belkin Gateway 54g wireless DSL router.
I can access the internet fine, but I find that files I download like quicktime movies, zip files seem to drop out when they are downloading. They stall and I have to restart them to get them down.
I'm using Firefox on windows XP professional.
I also noticed that when I use MSN messenger that the messages that people type, I only receive about half of, again due to the drop out from the router. I know it isn't the virgin media connection as I can plug straight into the virgin media modem via ehternet connection and get the full speed uninterrupted connections.
I had the same problem. I then set my IP to static and the problem resolved itself. However a couple of weeks later it started again. My IP remains static and I still have the problem. But at least thet's a temporary solution.
It's a DNS error. Find your cable modem's DNS settings by directly plugging in and going to the connection icon, hit it, then hit properties or details. It will list your DNS under DNS 4. Take that address and talk to your router via 192.168.2.1 or 192.168.1.1. in you browser address bar. Click on DNS and uncheck the box that automatically get DNS settings. Input your modems DNS and you should not have the problem downloading or watching video anymore. This solution works when your router won't download all the way or stops halfway. Peace out peeps. My belkin router did the same thing when I got it and I fixed it years ago and haven't had a problem.

If you can access the configuration page of your belkin router you have to copy the MAC address of your computer to the router. The router has the capability to clone the MAC address. It's because if you have a cable internet connection the MAC address is registered in the server.
From one of the "wired" computers, connect to the router's built-in web-server, and run the "Wireless Networking Setup Wizard", in order to configure your wireless network, choosing an 'SSID' and a "password" for your network.
hey what you can do is you can reset the entire router... by using the reset button on your belkin router... Or else you can also access the router by using the following IP address in the internet exlorer...
try 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 & then go to the wep settings & reset the router or change the password for the router...
the router may be block by Virgin Media, so that way people can't steal internet from it (that is if you have it unsecured) you may have to set it up with virgin over the phone, or have a local broadband provider try to set it up
Try geting a routher that featres wirless and eathernet so you do not have to have two boxes. You will have to know its ip adress enter it internet explore and then you will be able to protect it through there.
