I've recently added a desktop pc to the home's wireless network (using a D-Link DWA-125 Wireless N 150 USB adapter rev.A2) and it used to play nicely with the other devices. After switching out the router to an Actiontec V1000H my computer has begun losing most connectivity when the PS3 is turned on.
The pc still sees the network and there is a little activity there it seems. Everything runs fine when the PS3 is off and in the Wireless Network Connection Status display the speed is usually listed at 65-75 Mbps. But when the PS3 is turned on it reads 6.5 Mbps with the IPv4 connectivity bouncing between "internet" and "limited". Windows' automatic diagnosis is "Cannot communicate with DNS server".
I tried assigning static IP addresses to the pc and ps3 thinking there was a possible IP conflict with the dynamic addresses. Thinking there could be a conflict with ports I read up on port forwarding but my knowledge of networking is limited and I'm not even sure if that is the problem.
There are alot of other devices connected, 2 laptops, 2 iPod touches an iPhone the PS3 and now this old desktop clunker. I figure it's possible that the router is getting overloaded with everything and the PS3 just pushes my computer's bandwidth out the window but I would think that there would be some noticable drop in performance on the other laptops as well, which there hasn't.
I have 2 laptops and 1 desktop all connected to the same router, the 2 laptops are connected via wifi and the desktop PC is currently connected via an Ethernet cable, both laptops run windows 7 while the desktop runs windows XP and more or less every time the desktop is booted after a few minutes of normality connection to the internet is lost and the yellow triangle on windows 7 appears so to fix this I have to go into my routers settings via 192.168.1.1 and reboot which then solves the problem and all machines function as they should including the desktop.
I have an E1550 less than 1 year old. Lately, I have been losing internet on the AT&T modem. I called AT&T but as part of their diagnostics, I have to plug the modem directly into the PC. I have loaded the latest firmware to the E1550.Lose Internet but wireless connectivity to router exists.Internet light on modem is out (modem is connected to router)Unplug modem and leave off plug in, internet light is still out.Unplug router, plug router back in - no internet connection but do have wireless connectivity to router.Take cable from modem to router and plug directly into PC internet light comes on in modem and I have internet from PC.Take cable from PC and plug back into router .I have internet via wireless.What I can't figure out is what could be happening in router that would impact modem internet connection. I have replicated this at least 3 times. Yes, the modem is a bit old, but since plugging it directly into the PC works, I'm thinking it has to be the router and I cannot figure out why unless there's some sort of electrical thing going on in the router.
I have had numerous issues with my E3000 since I got about two months ago and they have all been resolved with the exception of this new one that popped up today.
My Samsung Blu-ray player is connected firectly via ethernet cable to the router. When it's on, I lose all conenctivity to the router with my wireless devices including three PC's, a PS3, two iPhones, one iPad, one Samsung Smart TV, one XBOX 360 and an Onkyo Receiver. When I say that I lose connectivity, I don't mean that I lose access to the Internet. My PC's see the network but cannot connect to it, the same goes for the Apple devices. The moment I shut off the Samsung BD player it kicks right back on and works normally. Until today, this never occurred.
I contacted Tech Support and they had never heard of this happening before. They suggested that I change the ethernet cable which I did while the unit was on and it worked until I turned the BD player off and turned it back on again. I also tried switching ports to no avail. Alos all of the software is up to date on both the router and the BD player.
So, I have this router at home a WRT150N. I put in access restrictions so my siblings won't stray onto unwanted pages.I enabled SPI Firewall Protection and what do you know, it worked. The next day though, we didn't have an internet connection.I checked everything with the modem (power cycles, etc.) and then I tried the router. Upon disabling SPI Firewall Protection, the internet connection came back.I tested it yet again, to see if it really was the SPI. Enabled and bam, no internet access again. I made sure to select "Allow" in the Access Restrictions for "Internet access during selected days and hours" making sure also that "Everyday" and "24 Hours" are selected.Now my question is, what do I need to do in order to enable my Access Restrictions without having to lose internet connection via the SPI Firewall?
For starters I have a qwest m1000 modem and a netgear router.this morning there was a rather large thundestorm that caused my power to cut out while I was usin my computer.. once I got it back up and running the ethernet light on my modem wasn't liighting up.I reallly have no idea what to do. Everything but the ethernet is working. I can still get to my routers website but that's it, and I don't what to do there once I'm on it.Is it possible the storm messed up the settings? Or killed part of my pc/modem? On my computer the ethernet light next to the jack on the back is yelllow when its threw my rouuter, but when I plug my modem into it directly it doesn't light up at all.
decided first of all to connect an old router to the master (but not test) socket together with different cabling & splitter/microfilter - everything starting working almost perfectly (apart from downstream data rate was considerably lower than expected each time I connected - between about 1400 & 1600 Kbps - I have max. 8 Mbps).when I connected back my current router everything continued to be OK (apart from low downstream data rate) - until I would restart the current router and everything went back to very very slow.
I have been using my DIR-655 for about 2 weeks now with Road Runner wideband services. Starting yesterday my internet became very slow and I discovered the cause was the router. I tried resetting it to factory settings and things will be fine and run smoothly for about 5-15 minutes but after that it goes back to being extremely slow. My speed tests would go from 10ms (normal) to 250-450ms. Before this issue occurred the Dlink was perfect, had full speeds. I am running a wire Ethernet connection.
I am currently using revB and tried upgrading firmware to 2.01NA which had no effect, but make my internet seemingly go back to normal for the first few minutes then nosedive again.I have also changed my speed/duplex settings in Network Config to 1gbs Full Duplex. I've also disabled QoS, and still no change. Not sure what else to do.
When directly connected to the modem everything seems fine. The modem is also the provided Motorola SBG6580 which I have called Time Warner to set the modem into bridge mode and have the DIR-655 connected to it.
After recently setting up a new computer, my entire network seems to randomly loose internet connection. The interval between connection losses is as short as half an hour but it sometimes goes several hours without dying; the connections is lost for anywhere between 30 seconds and 20 minutes each time it dies.The new computer is running Windows 7 and is using a Roeswill USB wireless adapter, but I have tired it with a wire and the connection still dies. I am disinclined to believe that this is caused by a virus simply because this is a brand new computer that has had only minimal use; to be on the safe side, though, I did do virus scans with multiple programs, however, I did not find anything.When the connection is lost, a yellow exclamation appears on the task bar's internet access icon. If I check my available networks, my network still shows full strength. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting but nothing happens; I don't get any "failure to connect" type errors nor do I get connection back. I have also tried physically removing the adapter/wire and plugging it back in, but that doesn't do anything either.
I am under the impression that the new Windows 7 computer is doing something to temporarily kill the entire network, but I don't know what.For the record, my modem is an old Motorola and my router is an old Netgear. Both are quite a few years old, but I don't think they are the problem as my internet was fine before I added the new Windows 7 computer. There are wired computers and wireless computers running XP, Vista, and 7 also on the network.
Roughly 10 or so computers and 10 or so printers connected to a server 2003 machine with att dal internet. Upgraded to att uverse and because of our program that we use (hotel management software) we have to keep the gateway / ip's all the same. Well for whatever reason, just so happen that our specific info that we have to use, the uverse modem has reserved for its self and we cant use it on there. We hook up a cisco e1000 router and have it act as the gateway so that we can configure our settings the way we need. Get everything going just perfectly fine. Sometime that night, 2 of the computers lose server/networked files access, but still have internet access. They only lose access to shared files, printers, etc... Logging off/on or restarting the pc's fixes the problem. But then every night almost like clockwork around the same time frame, it all happens again. I've changed ip's on the machines, changed settings here and there, but nothing has fixed the problem. The biggest pain is, I cant replicate the problem, I have to waot until that night to know if what I did worked or not. The last thing I tried was changing the lease expire timer in the router from 24 hours to 7 days. I figured I'd give that a try since it seems that its almost 24 hours exactly between errors.
My XP Pro SP3 PC is connected to a Netgear DG834N modem/router via Ethernet. If the PC is left for say 4-5 hours the ability to connect to websites disappears. The browser just hangs and it's the same with IE and Firefox The odd thing is I can still ping websites by domain name without trouble. So the interenet connection is actually still in place.The problem is consistent and repeatable.Throughout this I have a second XP Pro SP3 PC also connected to the router via Ethernet and it works perfectly.
I have 2 computers on a network, and 3 devices that use wifi on the same network. Basically when ever computer A is connected, every single computer or device on the network runs extremely slow, if at all. I get anywhere between 1200-2000 ping on pingtest with 2-60% packet loss. Even the speed on the "infected" computer A downloads extremely slow. I'm at a loss for this problem, everything runs slow and its because of the one computer connected to it. I have virus software on this computer, but its not the best so i'm not ruling out malware or viruses right off the bat.
Devices: Blackberry, Iphone, macbook (all wifi) Computer A Runs windows xp 32 bit, amd processor onboard video
The internet modem runs to a router (Dlink dir615) then to a switch (or hub, if you will) and then to the 2 computers. The entire problem is solved by unplugging computer A from the system. But other than that I have no alternative.
This only started about a week ago and everything was working fine before then. My router is causing my internet to be slow (I know this because it goes at normal speed when I am connected directly to my modem)
Basically, my issue stems from the latest Boxee firmware from 2 weeks ago, that since then, its been causing my DIR 655 to reset itself, thereby disabling my whole home internet. It eventually turns back on again after a while, but the process doesn't stop.Basically, my DIR 655 is connected, hard wired to my boxee. I also have a NAS 323 hard wired to my router. I've had this setup on my boxee, reading all my movies/shows from my NAS without any issues for the past 10 months. Then the firmware from 2 weeks ago on the boxee started to cause my router to reset. I thought it was a hardware router failure, so I bought another of the same model to try that out, same thing happened though. When I rolled back my boxee firmware to the previous version, it no longer causes my router to reset.Now, besides me trying to figure out how to correctly block the boxee from updating on the router. Is there anything I can do on the router to tell it to prevent it from letting the boxee forcing it to reset? I'm on High Speed DSL. My internet provider modem is acting as a bridge to my DIR 655. Its been working fine for the past 10 months.
I've also done the following:Ensure DNS IP addresses are being filled in under Setup/Internet/Manual? You can find thse under Status/Device Info/Wan section. Turned off ALL QoS Turned off Advanced DNS Services if you have this option under Setup/Internet/Manual.Turned on DNS Relay under Setup/Networking.Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices on my router.Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.I have Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP..
Basically, I've put my boxee back to my previous firmware, and this doesn't cause my router to reset and disable my internet. But I don't get how/why a firmware update can trigger my router to do this?
I have taken on a new client who has the following setup, BT Infinity, Vigorpro 5510, and SBS 2011 server. I was involved with unpacking and seting up the equipment to get client up and running. I have never setup a firewall before, and after contacting Draytek, they guided to get BT infinity, 5510 to talk so that the server was able to get onto the internet. The setup was then left in its default state.All was fine until lately, the client keeps losing internet approx same time most days.My problem is how do i get the 5510 properly configured to talk to BT infinity, and sbs 2011. I always get lost when it come to playing with IP address. Also the client has a fixed IP address supplier by BT, so want to know how to setup the vigorpro with this address. [code]
It seems that whenever I go on newegg, I lose my internet. It will regain signal quickly, but is a huge annoyance. I cannot shop nor look at parts pricing without this disruption. It is only when I am on newegg does this happen.
I have a RV042:Firmware Version : v4.0.0.07-tm (Aug 19 2010 19:19:50)PID VID : RV042 V03 .Configured with a internal LAN address (10.0.17.0/24) and ISP PPPoE External address on WAN1.I´ve configured a VPN with a remote location (Fortigate 4) and after the VPN starts up the RV042 cannot ping any machine in their local network (using the diagnostic, all pings failed in 10.0.17.0/24) and no machines in that network can PING and access or manage the RV042
The only way to manage the RV042 after VPN starts UP is using a machine in the other side of the VPN (The Main office)If i force the VPN down, the connectivity begins to work, but as soon the VPN starts up again, the local/LAN connectivity loses again.
I lose internet connection every day in the same time etc.i lose it in 2pm and i get it in 7.pm and tomarow again lose it in 2pm get it in 7pmit is not virus i have cleaned every infection whit Malwarebytes,Emsisoft,Hitmanpro,SuperAntispyware and Spybot
I CONSTANTLY lose connection to the net .Then it takes forever to rejoin the net.I know this PC has ASUS Wireless Console 3 installed on it. I have, in the past, tried a few fixes offered on websites for suggestions when you lose wireless connection (i.e. Setting a static IP to connect to, turning on firewalls, etc.) none have worked.
I have a desktop and several laptops and other devices running on a wireless network. Whenever the desktop is asleep or shut down, all the other devices lose connectivity to the internet. If the desktop is on and running, everything else works perfectly.
I have a Cisco 871w that has been a very great product for many years. I recently switched to Windows 7 x64 on my main machine and now i am having all sorts of issues with it.. I have done a bit of research and found that it appears that it might be the firewall on the SDM that is causing the slowness issues. what does happen is that downloads from known good sites will run really slow. If i hook up my Macbook Pro or my Windows XP laptop i have no issues at all. i have tried Disabling IPv6 as well as SMB2.0 and this has not resulted in a fix at this point.
I've got a problem with Norton 360 6.0. Everytime it updates its definitions, my internet disconnects and I have to reboot my computer to get it back. However, every time I try to command prompt a ping, it says I'm connected as does my networking center.
i lose internet connectivity constantly although i still have WLAN connectivity. my connection is lost every 5 to 20 minutes. it dropped my connection in the middle of an A+ exam troubleshooter is useless. sometimes it says DNS unavailable. sometimes it say default gateway unavailable. but when i run ipconfig, DNS and Gateway fields look fine. it's happened when connected to my wireless cable modem (Ubee brand) the wireless hotspot on my mobile phone (an HTC myTouch) and now on my Clear Wireless portable wifi hotspot (Apollo model)[code]
I do love your products and I am not just sucking your *beep*, but could you please update the firmware on this modem (DPC 3008). There are a lot of people that are having issues with losing their internet connection when it comes to this modem. It doesn't matter who the ISP is, doesn't matter what we try to do to fix this. I read somewhere that after you updated the firmware in 2011 on this modem is when your customers starting having issues. Now I just bought this modem a few weeks ago so I don't know for sure. All I can say is if this issue doesn't get resolved, I am going to smash the *beep* out of it and never recommend your products to anyone as well as never purchase another product from you. I like you I really do, but I am tried of losing my internet connection when I am playing my games or watching movies. People have stated that they removed your modem for a different brand and their issues were resolved. I am giving you a chance to show me that you value your customers and you will resolve this issue in a timely manner
Just installed a DIR-615, not impressed so far I have 3 clients, a Windoze 7 laptop, a Kubuntu workstation (wireless N) and a wireless HP printer. When I enable DHCP reservations and reserve the addresses then save settings the router reboots and when I go back in all info is gone and nothing is reserved. I have been having weird disconnection issues - I lose my internet periodically for no apparent reason so I increased the lease time and am trying to reserve addresses.
There is going to be 2 computer and a router each with there own static public ip address (ie 68.x.x.x range) The issue i am running in to is getting the netgear set up correctly, every time i disable the dhcp server on the netgear and set up all 3 devices with the static ips i lose internet connection. If i leave the set work set up as dhcp on the lan side and keep the wan static ip it all works fine.
Hardware list 2 windows 2000 pro 1 netgear model FVS318v3
I have a disconnecting problem with my WRT120N (Linksys) wireless router. Sometimes all wireless devices lose the connection to the internet, and the access to the router administration page (192.168.1.1) becomes impossible. In this case LEDs of power, internet and wireless are lighting without flashing. This problem usually occurs every 48 hour, and there was no way to make a reconnection except turning the router off by unplugging the power wire and plug it again…
I hope find a solution for this problem here
Other question: are there any problems in Firmware Version: v1.0.04
I have an RV220W running firmware 188.8.131.52. I have a couple of wireless laptop users that connect to the wireless without problems, but frequently cannot access the Internet. They can always access local network resources, but for some reason when laptops are first powered up or are idle for a prolonged period of time, Internet access is lost. Wired clients never experience this problem and always maintain local network and Internet connectivity.
To get the laptops to access the Internet over wireless, we have to run a TRACERT command from the command prompt to a public IP address, and then all Internet access is restored.
