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.
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.
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.
I don't have any problem with the wireless computers connected to the router but the wired one keep geeting disconnected. I'm loosing the internet many times a day on thiis one. Like I said the wireless is ok. My old router on my computer ( wired) was working well before I installed the wrt120n.
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.
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 184.108.40.206:80 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?
About 2 weeks ago my router began acting up. It disconnects when I'm just browsing, downloading or streaming a video. I tried everything! I changed the channel on the router, resetted the router numerous times. I connected the ethernet cable from my pc directly to the modem to see if it was in fact my router and not the modem. My pc never disconnected once while connected to the modem. In order for me to download something or stream a video I have to connect my pc to the modem and it is becoming a pain!
I have installed a DIR-655 and it all works at home, my brother accesses my slingbox to get his fix of english tv. This has all worked no problem in the past with the old box (Technicolor TG582n). However it now only connects for approx 5 mins and then it loses the connection. Replacing the old box all is well so it has to be something on the router. I have changed various settings inc changing the MTU size, pointing the gateway to the external gateway address, upgrading the firmware (now on Hardware Version B1, Firmware Version 2.05).
I bought a Dlink Dir 655 router a couple weeks and i seem to having a trouble. Every between 30min to a couple hours the connection dropps for no apparent reason. I tried a couple things like resetting to factory config, giving myself a static adress (since the logg was spamming the dhcp over my PC) Unfortuantly, none seem to work. so far it does a great job but the connection dropps are really annoying. Here are the log files if when it last occured.

It's a D-Link Wireless N 150.I constantly get an "Excellent" signal from the router, but my HP Mini netbook keeps disconnecting and re-connecting. It happens three to ten times in each hour, and it re-connects quickly, but the hiccup is annoying. Once in a blue moon, it'll disconnect and refuse to re-connect for a while.Other items that use the router--our iPhones, our Nintendo 3DS's, our Wii, our Xbox--don't have an issue.My netbook doesn't have a problem if I use wireless somewhere else, like in a coffee shop or McDonalds or wherever.I've tried updating my drivers, without much luck.

Sometimes when I leave my D-Link DSL-2680 router on for a long time it keeps disconnecting and the internet and DSL light turn red or they are blank. sometimes happens randomly as well. My ISP is TalkTalk but their customer service is crap and they're too slow to respond.
I log in to work from home and if I am inactive for 5-10 minutes, I lose connection to my work server. If I bypass the router, this problem doesn't happen. How I can change settings to keep my session alive?
For the past few months my router has been randomly disconnecting me and everyone who is connected to the router from the internet from anywhere between 10 seconds and 1 min and i can't seem to figure out what has been causing this. It can happen multiple times a day or it can go for a week without happening. it makes playing online games extremely annoying.
I am pretty new to networking and I have been working on things for over a week and have made some progress which has lead me here. My basic problem is that my network (media shares) is disconnecting from WDTVLIVE while steaming shows through playon. However, I can stream 1080p movies that are stored on my PC all day with no problems. Even when the media shares disconnect, network shares (stuff stores on my PC_) are still available and stream fine.
I get this at random times. My internet disconnects until I reset my modem and I don't think it has anything to do with the modem because I had it replaced by my ISP and they did a few line tests and nothing was wrong. What can I do to avoid having this problem anymore? It's been doing it for almost 2 weeks now and when it decides to do it is random.
I'm no good with computers, or anything like that; but this since about two days ago, my internet has been cutting in and out. One minute it will work fine, then a few minutes later it will disconnect, and then reconnect a few minutes later.I noticed that the globe symbol on my router either flashes when this occurs, or the power button turns orange. Why this is happening, and why it is happening all of a sudden ?
My previous wireless card was D-Link brand, and worked great. I never ever had trouble with connecting, never had to think about it or mess with any software. It always ran silently in the background, and connected automatically without fail. The card got damaged when I moved my computer, so I bought this T-LINK brand because it had good reviews.First I installed it from the CD the recommended way--with drivers and software. It was able to connect after some fiddling around, but then it would periodically disconnect. The problem seems to happen every 10 minutes or so, or whenever I open a game or program (like Steam), or google chrome/internet explorer, anything that requires internet usage. Sometimes it would give me an error about the settings of the card not being the same as the network settings. I think I fixed that, and still it had the same problem (it should have automatically detected the settings though).
The only way to restart it was to unplug the card, wait 10 seconds, plug it back in, or to restart my computer. However, it would soon DC again. When it does so, its like the card just goes to sleep -- no more blinking green light. Also, I made sure that the drivers that came on the installation CD are current (which they are). Eventually, after playing with settings to no avail, I uninstalled drivers and software and then restarted my computer, then reinstalled just the drivers.At first it was unable to connect, but after moving the stand to a different USB slot, then refreshing my IP through cmd, it did connect. It then DCed once on its own. I was able to get it back up after pulling the card out of the USB stand and plugging it back in. Since then it has not DCed, but I am not holding my breath.
First I have to say, I absolutely hate the program that came with it. Windows does everything the program does, except 100% better. I am not surprised that its not DCing as much with just the drivers.Ah, I spoke too soon. While writing this post, I attempted to open a new tab in google and it temporarily DCed me five times in a row. Specifically, there is a little yellow triangle over a 5-bars good signal. Says it is connected (limited connectivity). This time, the little green light stays blinking. It eventually re-connected itself each time on its own (maybe when the IP refreshed itself?). Each time it happened I was trying to use google searchThe 6th time I was in the middle of watching a video on youtube (not sure it makes a difference). The DCing seems to happen a lot more when I am actually using the connection. Sometimes I cannot load a web page even when it says I am "connected"[CODE]
Recently I bought a TP-Link WN822N and I had recently had this annoying problem with my adapter suddenly it disconnects but it mostly happens when I'm gaming so I'm clueless what the problem is. I tried to change the channels in my router in case it was any interference but no luck there. I also checked if it was just my "internet" but the internet went smooth. Also I did watch over the connection and it did suddenly change name to another one. It was the same network but it change to NetworkProfile, ain't sure if that's the problem though. I also tried to install a new driver over and over but no solution. My old adapter was just fine and there was no disconnects there before I got an upgrade which didn't seem to be good investment because of the disconnects. The disconnects can happen between 10-20 minutes before it occurs.
I bought myself a DELL INSPIRON 1564 almost 2 years ago. I have been using a DLINK router MODEL DIR 635 ever since.It worked flawlessly. Now, i moved to a different part of the city and i had to install an internet connection. The connection is the same i used before - 100mbs fiber-optic. The only problem now is that the internet connection keeps dropping 2 3 times a day.Sometimes my laptop sees the wireless connection we set up,sometimes i have to wait one or two days to connect.Furthermore my laptops SEES like 10 other wireless connections except MINE!!!( if i go to a friends place the laptop sees his internet connection and works, the same if i go to any other place with a wireless connection) I live with 3 other people, they all have laptops and theirs work fine even after we reset the router. I also own a desktop PC, i bought a wireless adapter for it and surprise even the PC sees our wireless connection,,even my mobile phone,every other device except my laptop.

I can connect easily to internet with TP-Link MR-3040 router and Huawei E173 3G modem, but the router is disconnected or reseted after a while with no reason. it works fine between 5 and 15 minutes, rarely more than 1 hour, and when i see a video or download a large file the reset is almost automatic. This never happens with the Huawei modem connected directly to the PC!
I've been trying to play Final Fantasy XI on my XBox 360 through this router. I have the latest firmware available. According to FF's tech support I need to port forward TCP and UDP 50000 through 65535. I've done this numerous times on my own and twice through D-Link support and am still getting disconnected.The game plays fine when it's connected directly to the modem, but as I'm not the only person in the house this isn't really an option.
I have been struggling with my WHS 2003 (Acer EasyStore 340) for about a month. It stated prompting me with port forwarding errors (DIR 655 router) a while back signaling that I would not be able to access my WHS via the internet. I ignored the prompts for some time as was not actually using the internet connectivity to my WHS.I then added a D-Link DGS-1008G 8-Port Gigabit Desktop Switch to the DIR 655 Router as I ran out of LAN ports when I added my HTPC to my devices.then my WHS started disconnecting from my home network. I could not remote into it wirelessly (via latop) using Remote Connection in Windows 7 nor could I access is via the drives I had mapped to it via my HTPC (wired connection to same router).i only know there is an issue when the server disconnects. As it does not have a dedicated keyboard or monitor I can only see the desktop when I remote into it wirelessly from my laptop. When it disconnects I can see the WHS icon in my tray go from Green to Black. And when I try to remote in, I get errors saying the WHS cannot be found.i started to think that maybe it was my DIR 655 Router. I did the following with no success:
- Changed LAN ports - Changed network cables - Upgraded the firmware to 1.35NA - Reset to factory settings - performed 30-30-30 reset - physically forwarded ports for WHS (80/40/4125)
Given that I cannot solve the connection problem with the above router fixes, am I to conclude that the issue is with my WHS?
I recently installed a tp-link router everthing works ok. The problem is when I turn off my pc and disconnect it and all attached devices (modem, router ect) from the electric supply. When I turn it back on I have no internet connection until I reboot the pc a second time.This problem only occurs when I disconnect the router from the electric supply. If I just shut down without disconnecting then I can turn it on and it connects to the internet without any problem.

Recently my wireless router has started disconnecting again and again...Whenever I connect it to my desktop and laptop (sometimes iphone), it disconnects in between which causes a lot of delay .The work which could be completed in minutes takes hours. Here is my current system log from the router : code...
I keep getting disconnected from the game "Vindictus". I'm not sure what protocols it uses, but it shouldn't require any configuration on the Router, since it was working fine before. I upgraded the firmware to 4.13 in an attempt to fix the issue, but it didn't work. Some people have suggested "Endpoint filtering" to be set to independent, but I cannot find such an option. Where is the option? I was told it was on the Firewall page, but it is not there (Advanced->Firewall/DMZ). The router is supplied by Virgin Media (ISP) but I'm not sure if that matters.
I have a TP Link TL-WN722N 150mbps USB wireless adapter I use with my desktop. I've had it for about 6 months and it has been mostly fine with a few little problems. I recently went away for a few weeks and when I returned I found that my wireless adapter is running very slowly and disconecting from the router. It is an adapter problem as no one else in my house is having the same issues. When the adapter does run slowly the only way to speed it up is to unplug it and plug it in again. This puts it back to a bearable speed but usually this drops within 30 minutes.
