Belkin storage manager sees my 8Gb flash drive for a split second and the pops up a message about unmounting. When it connects for a split second it shows up wit a drive letter, but then disappears again.
I have recently purchased a Belkin n300 wireless N router. The problem is, I have to reboot the thing numerous times throughout the day to allow a client to connect to it via wireless. One client will be connected and then drop, or a client will be connected, and I cannot connect another device. I also had an issue with streaming over wireless for netflix on my devices and the only way I could get it to work was to turn off the firewall, what the hek.... This is crap. I knew I should not have bought a belkin router again. Had one years ago and it constantly gave me issues. Had my Linksys Wrt54G for years with no problems until it finally crapped out. Anyways, my firmware version is the latest version according o the website.
FSD 7632-4 Router.Have this 2006 router which has started dropping the connection and/or slowing it down intermittently. Before I replace it, would like to update the firmware. Have downloaded the update but cannot log-in on the setup utility page as I cannot remeber my password (apparently it is not set to blank!).
I had an old belkin router and the net worked fine well the router would need to be restarted every week or so. But i got an upgrade and i now have a TP link TD-W8961ND The net is terrible its either there or not. have to keep refreshing pages ect .Could a setting possibly be wrong?
I'm having problems with my wireless connection constantly dropping and have set the optimal settings from the sticky's in the forums, nothing has changed this problem.
-Have changed to a empty Channel. (8) - TX and RX packets dropping, also some errors. -All new CAT 6 cabling between router and modem. -Have tried all different wireless modes. -Wired clients are working perfectly. -Changed the DNS servers.
I'm running an Asus G74sx, and it keeps losing connection to the internet (e.g. Youtube videos stop loading, disconnecting from online games constantly, my voice fizzing and breaking on VOIP programs like TeamSpeak 3 or Skype, etc). While the laptop clearly loses connection to the internet, it doesn't loses connections to the router (The signal strength remains excellent) and I've also tried using the cable, which doesn't fix the problem. The other computers using the same router work fine, though. These problems started about a week ago and I can't perform a system restore as the restore point available is from 05/26 (Yesterday). While I'm not an expert in the area, I've looked on several forums to see if there was a possible solution and done the following to try and solve the problem (none of which worked):
1- Restarting computer 2- Restarting router and modem 3- Opening the cmd and typing "ipconfig /release" and "ipconfig /renew" 4- Using a cable connection instead of wireless 5- Updating my wireless driver (Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 6150) 6- Unchecking the "Allow computer to turn off this device to save power" on the driver configurations
I installed Windows 7 a few weeks back with no hitches but over the last week I have been getting regularly kicked off line with above message that the default gateway was not available! Fortunately the Windows troubleshooter fixes it every time but intrigued why it keeps happening.I have reset the adaptor and the router but still no luck!
In the last three weeks I replaced a Linksys WRT54G wireless router with a new E2500. The only reason this was done because the store salesman indicated I should get much better performance over my router that was probably 5 years only.
Since the install I have had nothing but issues. I could never get on PC runing XP to connect. It worked one day and the next morning I could never get it to connect again. I even removed the encryption and went to WEP with no luck. My laptop that I loaded the software on and initially did the connection I didn't have an initial problem. The problem I now have is the wireless connection is constantly dropping. In the course of an hour the connection probably drops 3 to 4 times. If you leave the PC for several hours, you may need to sign of your user and resign in to get the wireless connection to work. This is an experiment gone bad. My old router never dropped a connection and every PC in the house stayed connected forever. This new router is located the same distance as my original one was, but is nothing but a series of failed connection.
I have gone through 2 of these routers now. The first time I was told I had a bad router so it was replaced. The problem is that it randomly disconnects all wireless devices. All I can do is wait for them to reconnect. I am very disappointed that I have not been able to find any solution to this problem. I have seen other posts for similar issuse but no resolution
I have bought a WAG320 & ever since I've had it the ADSL line keeps dropping every few hours. The LAN network is fine & I have 7 computers connected to the router wirelessly. When I press the re-set button on the back of the router everything is fine for a few hours then it starts doing it again?
I have a toshiba a215-s7437. I bought this router upgrading from the usual netgear router that everyone and there mother has(wrt54g or something?). The routers are in the same exact spot...less than 6 feet from the computer with no obstructions. No matter WHAT i do, even if i put the router on top of the laptop keyboard, over time, usually a matter of minutes, it starts dropping my link speed. My old netgear ever went below 54, EVER. Even if i was out on the porch.It will connect at 54 mbps, then go to 36, etc etc until we get to 1mbps. I have had other friends bring laptops over, same exact thing happens to them. I am viewing the link speed through windows task manager to get these readings. Though i can't see the link speed on my android phone or xbox, it seems over time they get slower also. I have tried googling the hell out of this issue to no avail. I do have the latest firmware. I have also tried searching these cisco forums and have not found any topics pertaining to this (maybe i just suck at searching). I have comcast at 15mbps and i do know that whether it is 54 or 36, it's not gonna be any faster. But just the fact that it falls the whole way to 1 is not acceptable. My fix for this at the moment is just disconnecting and reconnecting real quick, and i always start back out at 54 mbps. Sometimes I will get lucky and it will stay at that point for 20-30 min?
I setup a D-Link DIR-825, VB1, Firmware V2.00NA about a month ago. We have 3 Macs here at home - 1 brand new iMac, a G4 Powerbook, and an old G4 / 933 Tower. The G4 tower is connected via ethernet. The other two through Wi-Fi. My problem is that I can barely use the internet for even a few minutes on the G4 tower, connected via Ethernet, without losing my connection. I can be in the middle of loading a page or an image, and suddenly it will say "Waiting for xxx.com". Then if I try to go to Google.com or something I will invariably get "Looking up xxx.com". The connection usually returns on it's own, but it can take up to 3 or 5 minutes. When I get this message on the ethernet G4 tower, I will also have lost connection on the wireless Macs. For the first couple of weeks the tower was not connected and we were just using the two wireless Macs, and they were working well. It seems that as soon as I hooked up the G4 tower via ethernet, connections became very flaky and intermittent all of a sudden.All the Macs are configured for DHCP. We have a Time Warner cable modem. The G4 tower had previously been used at my office with it's own dedicated DSL modem / router, and it worked flawlessly for months at a time without dropping a connection. I've tried rebooting the modem, then the router, then turning all the Macs back on, several times. Same result. I just tried loading the new firmware but it didn't work. Said the Gateway was too crowded or something.
For the past week or so I've been having trouble with my Wi-Fi connection. I have a desktop PC, a kindle and a PS3 that all connect to it.
If I turn on my Kindle after it's been off for a while it'll try to connect to the Wi-Fi but will keep alternating between 'Authenticating'/'Connecting' and never gets to the 'Obtaining IP Address' part so it shows the signal strength bars at the top but they're totally empty. If I go and unplug the modem and the router, let them sit for a minute, plug them back in the large light on the router will flash orange (it's usually green) so I press and hold the WPS button which begins to flash and then both lights turn green and the Kindle quickly connects itself to the Wi-Fi. If I don't let it go into sleep mode or turn it off it will stay connected but if it turns off I have to do the same modem/router reset. When I'm at school or work I have zero issues connecting their wireless networks.
With the PS3, if it's turned on while I reset the modem/router it will connect to the network but if it's turned off during the reset it will not connect when I turn it on later. Also, either way, it no longer connects to my media server (sharing files between the PC and the PS3) regardless of connecting or not.
I've got a Belkin N+ Wireless router. Every day or two, all internet connections fail. If I pull the power plug on the router to restart it, all connections come back up as normal.
Is there something I can pinpoint that is causing this? Is the router getting "overloaded" or something? I didn't see anything in the router settings that I could tell would be related to this. Really getting tired of having to constantly manually restart this thing...
I recently changed my internet connection from a very slow adsl connection (im a LONG way from the exchange) to a moderatly faster vdsl connection. With the upgrade, they force me to use a modem that looks like it was made 20 years ago (although they say its had all the internals upgraded a month ago) leaving me to use a seperate router for wireless signal. I bought a bellkin F9K1002 v3 and after a little hassle had it up and running, the network connection between all the systems is great, but the router drops the internet connection every 30-120 seconds, for 15-20 seconds each time. I have about 10 devices connecting, but problem is there with just 1 connection wired or wireless.
I've tried calling my ISP (who will not touch router settings) and belkin tech support (who sound like they touched their first computer about 22 seconds ago) with no improvement. I've connected directly to the modem and had perfect connection for 12 hours, ruling it out of the equasion. I've disconnected all systems but one at a time, trying on 3 systems, with no improvement. I've turned off firewall, WPS, tried multiple wireless settings (channels and such) updated firmware all with no improvement. Here's a sample of the system log on the router:
Jan/1/2000 00:27:59 WAN PPPoE client receive PADS Jan/1/2000 00:28:00 WAN PPPoE client PAP
Basically i got a belkin(on a tight bufdget) wireless n modem(f548633) last week. and when i first set it up it was fine except it disconnectiong everytime ia setting was changed on it and taking ages to reconnect to it.
anyway in the last 2 days its started dropping connections to anyone using the wireless. thing is it doesn't completely disconnect it just goes down to around 5kb transfer but when trying to acces the router through IP it doesn't load unless i disconnect and reconnect. i could deal with this at first as it was once every few hours but now its happening every 5 minutes. i plan on sending it back but thought i'd have one last ditch effort at working this out. my security log shows alot of ACK sends to my IP.
02/07/2011 23:26:08 sending ACK to 192.168.2.4 02/07/2011 23:26:08 sending ACK to 192.168.2.8 02/07/2011 23:10:15 sending ACK to 192.168.2.8
I'm trying to install a new modem/router (the above) and am having a few problems. The install seems to have gone fine and the firmware has been updated to the latest version. PCs/laptops/PS3s/phones can all connect to the router both wired and wireless. But the modem seems to be dropping its connection to the internet at regular intervals - sometimes every 15mins, other times less. The security log mentions "PPPoE disconnected" after which it reconnects.Has anyone got an idiot proof list of what I should be checking? My old Net gear DG834PN does not have this problem at all so it really has to be the router rather than the line - at least that is my guess.
I have been having a lot of trouble lately with my wireless network. Basically, under certain situations it will constantly drop out, by which I mean all computers will lose connection with the wireless network for about 30 seconds and then reconnect.This is happening with two different wireless routers so I don't exactly know what is happening. I usually use a Linksys WRT54GS v7 but after this started happening I borrowed a friend's Linksys WRT54G2 v1 router to test it out with no change. I also updated both router's firmware last week, and changed both router's channels to 1 in case that was a part of the problem. To clarify,only one router is being used at a time, I have just tried different steps with each one.The other day when it was happening repeatedly, I connected one of the computers directly to the modem and had no problems so I do not think it has anything to do with my modem. On the network, depending on the time of day, there will be any combination of three macbooks running the latest version of snow leopard and one older PC running Windows XP. The network can drop out with only the PC, no PC, or any combo of macs. There can also be two iPhones and a Blackberry using the wireless depending on who is home. The most consistent problems seem to occur whenever something is being uploaded. We seem to get major issues when my wife is sending relatively large files (5MB+) using her macbook's mail program (either sending through gmail or her work address). However, yesterday it was happening every 30 seconds when someone was talking on skype on her macbook while there were two other macbooks connected to the network but doing nothing more than using a browser for basics like google.I have also noticed that this will often happen, though usually only once rather than repeatedly, when a computer that hasn't been on is turned on.
I have an RV016 V3 with firmware 4.2.1.02 that is constantly rebooting making it unusable. I have one LAN connect and 3 WAN's, 2 DSL's and one Cable Internet in a load balance config. I have tried firmware 4.2.1.01 and it reboots also. do I get and RMA from Linksys and send this pig back?
If your wireless indicator is flashing red when you discover the smurf, it can mean that someone has tried to logon with an incorrect password. this is not necessarily an attack, it could be someone you have allowed access too, who has forgotten the password? In this case entering the correct password will solve the problem.However putting your own MAC address into the filter will simply block your own machine.
I have the N600DB Wireless Router I am connected to the internet, but cannot open My Routers Homepage with http://router or http://192.168.2.1. How can I get to this page to reset the router settings? I also cannot connect any of my wireless devices to the network..
I have two matching N300 Belkin routers. The cable modem feeds into modem1 and modem1 feeds into modem2. I get a good wireless connection on modem1. Modem2 shows up on a wireless scan and it accepts the password. It however will not connect.
Right now on my internet, we have U-Verse, so one router is the AT&T U-Verse one which is downstairs and I also have another router upstairs which is a Netgear oneThe problem is, the U-Verse always stays up, but on the Netgear router, it will sometimes randomly drop signal and the signal is no where to be found on devices with WiFi. I'd have to disconnect and reconnect the router for it to be seen again.They are both on the same internet network U-verse, I just have 2 routers because the devices I keep upstairs I connect to the upstairs router.
