I just got a DIR-655, and I got it working, with some effort. However, the wifi stops connecting to the internet every few hours and requires a reboot. Only a reboot of the wifi portion of the router's software, I go to Manual Wireless Connection Setup and save it without changing anything. LAN connections don't experience this.
My router was working fine. Then 1 day I started having slow internet. My ping in games would jump up from ~60 to about 400-800. Did some troubleshooting with my ISP. Seemed like my modem was to blame. So I bought a Netgear one from BestBuy.
Everything was fine. Then 1 day the internet stated disconnecting. None of the computers could see the router in the wireless networks. I found the only way to solve the problem is to unplug the power and plug it back in. Strangely it seems to happen a lot late at night like around 11PM or 12 midnight EST.
Before with my old modem I just had automatic settings and DHCP. With the new modem it wouldn't work so I called DLink and the tech guy walked me through some steps, one of which was changing the ip address from 192.256.0.1 to 10.10.10.1. Whenever I reboot the router after a disconnect the computers say "there was an IP address conflict." Maybe this has something to do with it?
I saw in another topic someone said their router's time was wrong. Mine said it was 2010 so I updated it to automatically sync with ntp1.dlink.com and now it shows 2012. Let's see if it fixes now. My mom's laptop had a similar problem with Skype. For some reason the clock kept resetting to 2000 and Skype would not work (everything else did). When she resets the time to 2012 it starts working again.
Using a Samsung Galaxy S2, iPod Touch 3rd Gen, and Nook Color, they are all experiencing retry problems, even when 3 feet from the DIR-601. When I use them my log gets filled with messages like:Blocked incoming TCP Ack packet from 192.168.100.201:2926 to 126.96.36.199:80 with unexpected sequence On the devices I see the downloads/content taking a long time to appear and often I get a blank page or "Retry" messages. I purchased two DIR-601s and get the same problem with both. They are both running 1.02NA firmware. The WLAN is Time Warner cable modem. Prior to this I had a Linksys WRT-54 that gave great performance, though just at B/G speeds. I was hoping for a performance boost but right now the N speeds are slower than B with the retries.
I'm running a D-Link DIR-655 Hardware Version A3, Firmware Version 1.21. In the past, it has been flaky, and I considered updating to the latest firmware (1.3+ something), but everywhere I read (mainly this forum) said it might be WORSE for the router and couldn't even be downgraded, so I decided to ride it out.
Eventually the problem disappeared and I forgot about it, but now it's back with a vengeance. Recently I opened up a Guest Zone so my neighbors could borrow wifi, and I occasionally run torrents. Torrenting seems to definitely crash the router overnight, while it also seems to randomly bug out, possibly when the neighbors are using the Guest Zone. The Guest Zone might be responsible, but I have no idea.
For what it's worth, I don't think my neighbors are terribly tech-savvy, so I doubt they're filesharing or doing anything risky. They might have malware installed, but I don't know.
Is there a way I can diagnosis my precise issue, should I go ahead and update to the latest firmware to try?
I just got a new 2011 Toshiba Satellite L755 laptop with Windows 7, I also have a 2006 Compaq Presario with the original Windows Vista. We use a DIR-615 router for WIFI connection on both. The old Compaq will keep a connection with no problem and never looses a connection. The new Toshiba will keep 3 bars of signal but will not keep a constant connection to the internet. Do I need to upgrade my router, which I bought the one I have about 3-4 years ago, or could it possibly be a problem with my new computer?
My DIR-655 keeps rebooting multiple times per day. Something in the order of 10-15 times per day. This is not under any heavy load. It's plugged into a decent battery backup providing good clean power. I initially thought its overheating, so I had a fan blow on it all day long, without any change in the issue.
I loved this router when it was working correctly (3+ years). Any way to figure out the cause for the reboot?
I purchased the DIR-615 last week, and have experienced intermittent loss of internet connectivity, and automatic rebooting numerous times a day. A solid connection is up for 90% of the time; but you never know when connection will be lost. When connection is lost it automatically comes back after about 5 minutes with the router rebooting itself. I though I would ask for assistance here prior to taking it back to Fry's. I was previously using a 6 year old Linksys, and had no problems for years until it recently decided to die.
DIR 615 Hardware Version I1 Firmware Version 9.01NA (I updated from 9.0)
i have been living in China for some time and bought a DIR-600M router from DLINK while I was there. While a friend configured it for me and everything was fine, i would love to have an english version of the firmware.... i have searched everywhere but couldnt find any english version for this particular model..I have tried to download and install the American version of the 600 model, but it seems as it does not accept this version as it always jumps back to the chinese version after rebooting....
As I continue to have various issues with my revision A version of the DIR-825, does an updated firmware is in the works? Or has revision A been DE-supported by Dlink?
I'm still having issues with: Share port printer no longer being recognized/usable until router rebootedLoss/overload of router which causes all clients (wired and wireless) to loss connectivity Router rebooting itself periodically
I am not good at networking. My friend wanted me to set up his home network.because the modem is unable to supply a good wireless connection to the rest of the household when the door is closed, a second router was needed.I set both routers to run with DHCP as they have many devices that needs to connect to the router for internet. However, a few hours after setting it up, my friend's pc as well as all devices connected to the second router faced issues. The router's interface showed that it does not have connection to the internet. they are still facing this problem until now.
I keep getting disconnect from the internet about every 10-15 minutes.I had a tech from cableone come over yesterday he installed all new wiring and a new modem.how can i tell if it's my computer that is the problem or if it's just a service i need to get rid of?
I currently live in a fairly-large apartment in Downtown San Francisco and as you can probably imagine, I have ALOT of interference with nearby residential and business wifi's, microwave's, cell-phones and all that jazz.
I currently have the ATT Elite DSL package, which is I believe the 6MBPS(?) package? Anyway, it's the $40 package and I want to say it's either the second or third up from the basic 19.95/month subscription. Here's my problem: ever since I moved into this building, I get signal drops on my ATT all the time--like at least once an hour if not more often. I had a technician check the wiring and he even replaced the router box (they always do) in hopes of improving the situation but so far, no dice.
I have tried switching to different channels after using scanning to see what channels other internet users nearby were using, but I did not see any improvement.The best solution I've been able to come up with is to set my router to be on 802.11B only. For the most part,I have not disconnected but I do feel a certain amount of slow-down or lag compared to my 802.11G settings.Now,I might be paranoid but it certainly does take a good amount of time longer to load up pages and such as compared to previously.The tech suggested I look towards getting an 802.11A/N router, but alas ATT does not support routers of that caliber...not sure why. It's been years and they're still stuck with the 2Wire 2701HG-B model for DSL.
I am an unlucky person who still has a belkin router. Not only do i have a belkin router, my PC is also connected via 2 switch boxes all ethernet cabled together in and around the house.
I am unable to forward and ports succesfully because after i have saved the settings i check it with a port checking site and it says they're all closed.
I have also been getting disconnected from my router when its under stress (Most recently playing League of Legends) but my Dad's Pc (Which is only connected to the Belkin) still stays connected and hasn't experienced any disconnections.
My router model is F5D7634-4 v2, DHCP is enabled but only my Dad's PC appears, UPnP is enabled but doesn't seem to work and my fireware is up to date.
I used to have a different router before this one which never had these disconnecting problems.
Ive been through 5 routers. All of them, except ONE has had a very annoying problem. The WiFi disconnects like anything randomly. The funny thing: The 4 that disconnect have all been working on 802.11n 300mbps. The 802.11g DG834Gv5 is as solid as a rock, maintaining connection for months on end, no wireless dropouts. Ive tried fiddling with the 4 routers (DGN2200, DG834N, Belkin N1 Vision, and another one ive forgotten), putting them onto 54mbps, which always works perfectley. When its on 145mbps or 300, they disconnect. No pattern, just fall off. When reconnecting, I can see them in the network selection thingy, but it just gives me the error 'Cannot connect to XXXX', only solution is to turn off the wireless radio and turn it back on via router interface.
In the past week I have been getting totally random disconnects from my modem. Sometimes it works great, other times it will essentially cease to function as it tries to sync to bells lines, it seems to be worse at night from what I've seen. I have called my ISP over 4 times, had 3 separate techs come to my house and replace everything from the router to the Internet port down the road.The only thing that has not been replaced is the actual phone jack in my wall but every tech has looked at it and said its functioning fine. I am at a loss, and on the verge of canceling my service with my ISP at this point. Problem is I cannot get rogers for various reasons, so bell is my only option for high speed internet, so canceling with them sorts leaves me high and dry.
I've recently been being disconnected or dropped in multiple online games, but this is mostly aimed at World of Warcraft, It can be fine for hours or even days but it often comes to a point where I can't stay online for more then 10 seconds.The thing is, it works fine if I connect directly to the modem with out the router, but I have the same problem with 3 different routers including a rather expensive new one I just got.
- The Problem persists on multiple differnt computers with differnt OS and anti viruses
After many many problems with my PC's wireless card since i bought it, i have finally got it to connect to the internet, and to allow myself to browse the web, but yet another problem has occurred, my download rate goes from fast (opening 4 links in quick succession) and all content is on the screen, to 20 seconds later, not being able to open 1 link without seeing a white screen, and it very slowly downloading all the stuff on the page, and this happens at random. so basically my internet goes from quick to slow to quick to slow
I have a medialink USB adapter and medialink wireless router. I've had them configured for a couple of months and both seem to work fine. The issue is with only one system (main desktop computer running windows 7 64bit). I shut the system down over this past weekend and when I came back today, it said that it could not connect to the network and that the settings saved for my wireless network were incorrect.
After much frustration and googling, I finally performed a hard reset of my router (tiny button in the back) and redid all of the security settings (different SSID, different password). I finally got my desktop to connect to the network. When I connected, windows prompted me saying that I was sharing an IP address with another computer on this network. I canceled out of the prompt and my wifi worked fine. However, my computer has been randomly disconnecting from the network every few minutes for the last hour or so. I have to manually reconnect to the network every time this happens and it does not seem to stay connected for long periods of time. All other systems on the network (laptop and phone) do not have this problem.
Additional note: When first trying to fix the problem (before hard reset), I disabled the "Bonjour" service in windows AND ran the following command: netsh int ip reset C: esetlog.txt per a suggestion on a forum. I'm not sure if this would have changed anything even after the reset.
we recently purchased a sg300-52. i was told i would need to setup a port trunk to connect it our main catalyst. However, i was able to connect a patch cable on the two devices and ping endpoint devices on both switches. I also noticed that the activity lights are constantly blinking. I'm not sure why. Is there something i can do to slow the activity light? it blicks constantly even in times of very low activity by the endpoint.
how can I make a folder that gets updated on a computer does the same thing to another computer on the same network, so while I add new music to my music folder on one computer it updates the files on the other computer? How can I do this?For instance I add a song to the album folder UNKNOWN on a downstairs computer Upstairs computer gets the song updated in the the UNKNOWN Album folder.
I have a new DIR-815 router, with a network consisting of one HP desktop computer, one Sony VAIO laptop computer and one Samsung tablet computer.My problem is that I can't seem to maintain a constant internet connection requiring a new router setup at least once a week, sometimes more frequently.Also, even though the network I set up is called "HOME" my desktop, which is the computer connected to my cable provider, never shows any connection to that network. Both the laptop and the tablet connect to the :HOME" network while the desktop connects to something called "Network 5" which does not show up anywhere in my setup. As long as I have an Internet connection I really don't care what the connection is called, but I find it strange that I am connected to a network that apparently does not even exist
Basically my sister, who lives in a flat attached to the side of my parents' house, wanted me to find a solution for her to get internet, as there is no signal from my parents' wireless down in the flat.Originally I tried an old belkin wireless range extender I had lying around but even then the signal was extremely weak and the connection was too slow.So, I decided I would get some powerline adapters. But, of course, my sister needs wireless, so I figured I would use the powerlines to connect a second wireless router to the existing one.And so begin my real problems. The thing is, it actually worked fine at first. I set up a new wireless network, and had the ethernet from the powerline running in to the WAN port of the second router. But, every few minutes or so the connection would just die suddenly and take a while to come back (the connection was still there, but the browser just gave DNS errors etc).So I did some googling and fount a lot of people saying that I had to A) plug it into one of the LAN ports, not WAN, and B) disable DHCP on the second router.However when I do this I simply cant load anything at all. I'm thinking maybe there's some additional setup regarding static IPs or something that I need to do when I disable DHCP?
All devices that are connected wireless through this access point have the difficulty of dropping internet momentarily. When ping from wireless devices to comcast.com with -t I get:
This happens about once every minute. Wireless connection itself does not drop just access to the web. Every single wireless device does the same thing including Ipad, ipod, mac and windows machines. Two machines that are directly wired into the router do not have this problem. Thier Ping status stay at around 60ms. Things I have tried:
adjusting MTU Beacon interval in both faster and slower directions Fragmentation threshold RTS threshold Made sure no other devices in range are on same channel firmware updates different security settings changing SSID
This is causing streaming problems for both security cameras and client music.
i have a little problem with my wireless half mini card, because always, when i connect my wireless mouse into my laptop, my wireless half mini card starts to disconnecting me from wifi.
This problem is happing ALWAYS, when i join my mouse, Roccat Pyra to my laptop. If i join another kind of wired/wireless mouse, my connection to wifi is stable and everything works fine.
So type of my wireless half mini card: wireless half mini card dw1520-N WLAN
I tried to reinstall/ actualize drivers of this mouse and half mini card, also actualized whole Win7 and still having this problem.And for sure, i once more repeat, that i'm having this problem ONLY when ROCCAT™ Pyra – Wireless is connected, with other kind of mouses (logitech/genius) everyhing works fine.
