Router won't hold connection

If I leave my computer for a while, the computer loses access to the internet. I have to unplug and repower the router to get back on and then everything is fine. What can I do so that I can quit having to repower the router?

Update the firmware of the router by going to Belkin's download site. Save it on your computer and access the router's setup page by going to 192.168.2.1, go to firmware update option then upload the new firmware on the router.

Or call the toll-free Supportrix Tech Support at 1-877-787-8749 and give "support call" as promo code for one free technical support call.

I can not connect to the Internet. I have WiFi connection but can't do anything else


Plug your computer/laptop directly into router. Can you get to the Internet then?
If you CANNOT get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router, reboot your router. If it doesn't have a power switch, unplug it. Leave it unplugged. Next, you need to figure out if you have another modem for DSL or Cable. If you do have another DSL or Cable modem, unplug that device to. After 5 minutes has elapsed for both devices being unpowered, plug in the DSL or Cable modem to the power source. Keep the router unplugged from power. After your DSL or Cable modem has powered up for 5 minutes, plug your router into the power source. Wait a few minutes. Reboot your computer/laptop. Try the wireless connection again.
If you CAN get to the internet when your computer is plugged into the router. Reboot your computer. Try to connect again. If you cannot connect after rebooting, make sure you are connecting to YOUR OWN wireless access point and not someone else's.
Do you have other computers/laptops/wifi devices that CAN/CANNOT connect to your wireless / access the Internet?

Troubleshooting Internet disconnects

Are all computers connected to the router affected?
If so, try this first:

  1. Unplug the power to the cable / DSL modem
  2. Connect the power to the router.
  3. Connect a computer to one of the LAN ports of the router.
  4. Restart your computer.
  5. Restore the router to factory defaults. Note: This will remove all previously configured settings.
  6. Once the router has gone through the restore it will then begin the reboot. When the reboot completes plug the power back into your modem.

This addresses a common scenario where the router has been connected to the Internet for an extended period and holds an IP address (DHCP lease) for a longer period of time than your Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows.

This is normal and does not indicate any issue with your Belkin router or ISP.

If the router is located where you cannot easily unplug it, you can restart it using the router's web-based interface. If your DHCP lease time seems to be extremely short, contact your ISP to see if there are other issues on the network.

In certain network scenarios, it may be helpful to turn off all the equipment on your network, and then turn it all back on. Leaving some devices unplugged for up to five minutes can also help. Try unplugging the router, any switches, and any cable or DSL modems. Shut down connected computers. Plug in the cable or DSL modem first.

Plug in the Belkin router second, and wait for the lights to cycle through the startup routine. This prevents another device from taking the DHCP lease. Lastly, start up your computer.


Are just wireless clients affected?
If so, focus on factors that affect wireless clients, such as:

  • Network selection and security
  • Hardware access control
  • Client TCP/IP settings
  • Signal strength
  • Sources of interference


Are just wired clients affected?

If so, check your network adapter settings. Check all cable routing, connections, and power supplies.


Can you connect to the Internet directly?
Set up a computer to connect to the Internet directly, without the router.
If you cannot connect to the Internet without the router, please contact your Internet Service Provider for assistance.


Check your signal strength

You may lose your wireless connection if you go beyond the range of the router, or if there is an obstacle between your computer and the router that blocks wireless signals. You can check signal strength by opening your wireless adapter's interface.


Is your modem configured correctly?

For Windows XP and 2000:


1. Connect your computer to your modem with an Ethernet cable.

2. Click Start, and go to Run.

3. In the Run box, type CMD and click OK.

cmd.jpg


4. In the DOS window that opens up, type ipconfig and then press Enter on your keyboard.

ipconfig.jpg



For Windows Vista/7:


1. Connect your computer to the modem with an Ethernet cable.

2. Click the Start button and in the Start Search box, type cmd. You can either press Enter on your keyboard or click on cmd.exe when it appears in your search list.

start_search_cmd.jpg


3. In the DOS window that opens up, type ipconfig and then press Enter on your keyboard.

vista_ipconfig.jpg


4. The IP address (or IPv4) will be a series of numbers following the pattern xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (for example, 192.168.2.2).



After following either of the steps above, your IP address is 192.168.xxx.xxx, then your modem is also a router and will need to be bridged by your ISP. If your IP address begins with a 169.254, your computer did not receive an IP address from your ISP.

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

I can only get wireless internet when plugged directly into my wireless modem. Why do I lose connection when I unplug?


If your wireless card in your computer/laptop has not been configured with your wireless router's settings then it cannot connect to the wireless router. That is why you lose Internet connect when you disconnect the LAN cable.

If you have network access, it is not likely your computer. Since you have a network connection, I would start troubleshooting with the modem by turning off the local network (unplug power from rear) then turning off the modem (same, unplug at rear) for about 20 seconds then repowering the modem. Wait until the modem lights have settled into their connected/ok state then replug the local router. This will in most cases solve your particular issue. Farmerbear at FixYa

WRT150N 0ccasionally wireless is lost. Repower gets it back


Hi,

Where is the router located? There maybe devices that run the same frequency as the router that may interfere the wireless connection (e.g. microwave oven, cordless phone). It may help if you place the router in the middle of all your wireless computers, change the channel of your router (change it to channel 1 or 11), or securing your wireless network by changing your SSID (do not use default wireless network name as others maybe using the same) or use WPA or WPA2 to make sure that nobody uses your wireless network.
