I have installed the netgear N900 dual band which is 99� and is working fine on 2.45ghz because I have a belkin g range extender as my house is very long. So everything is working and my computer works but every so often the Internet drops so the modem needs turned on and off to get back on the Internet even though my computer says its connected but not loading any pages. It works fine for a while then sometimes drops, it works fine until I use my Mac books or iMac but works fine with iPhones? What can I do ?
I have finally got netgear adapter to connect to router, and its connected, but not able to access any webpages. I am not receiving any bytes back. I had to manually type in a IP address, as it was not picking it up automatically. I have other devices connected to the router (laptop, ipad, iphones) and access web easily. I have tried hard resets, and shut downs all with no avail
I have the Netgear wndr4500 router setup as an AP. The wndr4500 has a feature for guest wifi but will not connect to the internet. The main wifi will connect to the internet fine. I'm wondering if I use the WNDR4500 as an AP, the guest features do not work?
Internet connection seems like it drops and comes back up every couple of seconds. Not just little drops, wont load a web page and lag me out of games drop. Usefully only for a few hours at most. But its been a full day this time. Ive been searching all all over the place and nothing is working. So with that I have a Netgear WNA3100 picking up wireless from my land lords up stairs. Not sure their router Id but Im pretty sure the problem is on my end. Ive downloaded and reinstalled updated driver, and I have "excellent" connection all the time, according to windows and netgears software. Ive tried pinging and I only lost one packet once (at yahoo.com) out of probably 100 pings, literally Ive been sitting here for a while, to the ip and some sites.
I purchased a New Netgear N150 wireless Router 2 weeks ago and now my internet on my laptop keeps going down.. As Far as I can tell When it drops its still connected to the Wireless network.. it just says local only and Gives me the limited connectivity warning.. When I diagnose the issue it tells me a number of different things and it tells me to renew the IP settings and sometimes that will work and sometimes not.. The laptop is a HP Pavilion DV9000 with all original hardware.
I have a Netgear WNR1000v3 router. I have two computers connected with a wired connection and a couple of different devices that I connect with using the wireless connection. (Phone, Laptop, Ipad). The wired connections work fine but the wireless connection will only connect to the internet for a very short time (seconds) and then drop off. If I wait long enough I will pick it back up again. But again, for only a very short time. I have tried all the reboot procedures without any success. If I reboot the laptop, Ipad, etc., that seems to get me a connection, again for a very short time. I've checked the lights on the router and everything there says its OK. It seems to have to difference how far I am from the router. I've put the computer right next to it without success. Is the router going bad? It's only about 4 months old. Because I don't use the wireless feature often, I can't tell you if it ever worked or not. It seems to me like I was able to keep a connection when I first hooked it up but I'm not sure.
I have a NetGear WNR-1000 wireless G router. I currently only have 1 computer hooked up but I have had 3 computers hooked up to it before. It doesn't matter what internet it's connected to or how it's connected to the modem itself. I have had DSL and Cable hooked up to it and I am currently using it as a secondary router behind my roommates old Wireless B router. He currently has all of his things hooked up via ethernet and wirelessly to his router. So, im download the xirrus wifi inspector thing. It doesn't matter the OS either. I've had XP sp3, vista, and 7 all hooked to it and it's the same all the way around and it doesn't matter the kind of wireless card either!
I have a Netgear DG834G v3 ADSL router which I have had since early-2007.
When I work from home I connect to office networks on a Win7 machine via a Rackspace-provided VPN using Cisco System VPN Client 5. It works well, except for one issue that is costing me time every working day.
I get intermittently disconnected from the VPN, without any warning or apparent reason.
Since I bought the router 5-6 years ago I have had no need to update firmware, so other than ISP configuration I have had no need to change the router at all and I can say it's worked well for me.
What would be the reason for my VPN connection dropping? Is this an ISP issue (my ISP is Carphone Warehouse/TalkTalk) that I have to take up with them or is it more likely a hardware problem with my router or a VPN configuration issue?
My instincts are to not look into VPN config at the moment as I know a colleague who uses the same VPN through a different router and ISP can stay connected for hours, even overnight.
We have a wireless router that is constantly disconnecting/dropping our laptops from the internet. We have had this router for about 2.5 years. Is there a specific router out there that doesn't drop. We currently have a Netgear 108 mbps.
I have been having a heck of a time getting my gigabit network working off of either my new router, or 2 older ones. Since my house is wired with cat5 cables, I was thinking about putting an 8port router in my networking box that is tucked away in the corner of the house, and then using my new Dlink 857 router as just an access point in a more optimal location in the house.
My questions are as follows:
Would be slower for either the wireless internet speed or the speed of file transfers between the wired computers?
Would I be able to transfer files both ways from the NAS that would be hard wired to the 8-port router? Is there any benefit/disadvantage to my idea that I have not thought of? I know it is possible, but do I want to do it?

I am looking to expand my network. I purchased a WD N900 router to replace my old Linksys E1200 .The internet connection is coming from the modem, into the WD N900 Router. The WD N900 has the printer hooked up to it, and 3 NAS, a computer and our magic jack. I ran 30 feet of network cable and routed the cable through the walls into the section of the house. I am looking to use my old Linksys E1200 to extend my network. I want to hook up the gaming systems (PS3, XBOX360) as well as the entertainment receiver to my Linksys router. What is the best setup? I am looking to be able to access the NAS from the WD N900 on our PS3 and Xbox360 so LAN-LAN looks like the way to go. I tried using the directions on Linksys site, but it doesn't seem to want to work. I test the network cable I ran through the walls, and it is getting a good signal. However when I hook it up to the Linksys E1200 and connect my lap top the Linksys E1200 to test it isn't working.
I just set up a linksys n900. On one of the laptops that have vista it doesn't connect to the internet. The odd thing is when I first hooked up up it seemed to work fine than a day later it just stopped. All other computers are fine and if I try to connect to another network it works fine. Just when I try my home network it has issues.
I need configuring my N900 router to be able to use Microsoft's Remote Desktop Connection to get into my computer from a client's location. I also want to be able to host websites I'm developing so my clients can see the changes before publishing to their website. I have not been able to find anywhere what settings to set to what in order for these two things to be available to me.
My phone is a Nokia-N900, and I find the most useful way to interact with it from my PC is by ssh. Luckily it is possible to switch out the usb-networking module in the devices kernel to make it appear to windows as a generic RNDIS gadget. Plugging it into a windows PC I can now ssh into it, I can open an sftp session, everything works perfectly...
Except I can't access the web. I can't view other network resources. I look in the network connections section in the control panel and see my two connections, but I don't see any way to set which one to use for what. Seeing as I only use usb0 for ssh and eth0 for everything else, it seems I need a way to set it up so that usb0 only gets port 22 or something similar.
Is there any way to achieve this, or another method by which I could leave my phone connected to my Pc while using it for other network tasks?
There are plenty of instructions to configure USB storage but there are no instructions on how to use it, specifically. Ok, so I have my ftp address, user name and password and tried to connect with Filezilla on my local network. Unable to connect. Also, the USB device does not even show up in Network settings. However, I am able to see the device as a media server from Sony Playstation.
I am trying long distance to set up above router. Router communicates fine with laptop and wifi printer but when she tries to connect her iphone (I think iphone4), phone states that password is incorrect. She is using the same password that she used for the printer and laptop which is the router default one which is a series of mixed numbers and letters.
I recently upgraded my router because my last cisco router was having a misdirect issue. Type in facebook and you get an invalid URL and would have to reset the router to get it to work. Now I bought a new Cisco router and am regretting it. The n900 was a pretty penny and now ALL my videos are always buffering. I have several computers connected, but not active. The internet is painfully slow with the new router, but lightning fast with out it.
Currently using my laptop secuirty settings are IPv6/ and 4 SPI Firewall Protection: Enabled WPA2/WPA mixed mode.
I have tried everything: Rebooting, up to date firmware, resetting, What should I do next? Disable some of its advanced features? Cisco is earning a bad rap with me if a router that boasts high internet speeds makes all my videos buffer and load painfully slow. Let alone getting through all the commercials on the internet now.
i recently purchased a D-link n300 DIR-632 (wireless router), i ran the setup wizard and it seems to work. HOWEVER. for some random reason the data transfer will cut out for around 30 seconds or so and all activity is halted. I have looked in the routers Settings however i am not comfortable with messing around with to many settings incase i completely screw up the network. Is there a setting that i have to change so that my network will run more fluently. It is a 300mbs data transfer and there is a maximum of 3 devices running from the network at any one time. I am trying to play online games and the network will lag and freeze the game causing it to crash and have to be restarted. ALSO i would like to note that this router is LAN enabled too. The main computer running on this network is connected by a LAN cable and is still having the same data issues as the wireless devices....
My lan conenction keeps dropping on my desktop, we have two other Pc's attached to the same router (bt business hub) and they are always working, however my Pc runing win7 64 bit says its connected to the router and assigns an ip but its not connected to the internet? ( until i do a restart)
Ive fixed the IP and DNS- still dropped reinstalled drivers for NIC- still dropped Restored machine back to a few months- still dropped, checked the cabling and changed- still dropped
I could understand this if it wasnt finding the router or IP and if the other PCs showed the same symptoms, however thats not the case and its reallt confusing.
I have a TG782T Thompson Gateway, and a few months back we had a lightning storm where it hit the ground fairly close. Ever since that storm, on a regular basis our DSL connection on the router keeps dropping out. Also the phone that we had at the time was shorted out and we had to buy a new one.
I have noticed a few times over the last month that my PC would not load pages due to connection problems. If I hover over the Network icon, it say that I am not joined to a network but within minutes, it reconnects itself. I use http://www.scan.co.uk/products/zyxel-pla-4201-500mbps-mini-powerline-adaptor-twin-pack power adapters and they "appear" to work well with good speeds as I download and game online alot. I have noticed that today the problem is really bad. It loses its connection every 5 or 10 minutes and then reconnects itself as if nothing has happened. I tried using my iphone on the wireless and it also seemed to have dropped out on connection. I have tried resetting my router too but with no joy
Recently I have been having problems on my home Wi-Fi connection. Every so often, I drop my connection. It happens many times during the day, and it is really starting to annoy me.On the Wi-Fi connection, are 3 other laptops than mine connected to. About 3 months ago, the problem began for me, only recently have the others also gotten the problem. As we stand now, we are all craving for an explanation.
My atheros ar9285 wireless network card continuously drops my connection, now I've seen other topics about this put there solutions dont work. I hear McAfee can cause problems? It is on a asus k5dij laptop and my wi-fi is provided by bt using a bt home hub 3 type b. Find attached my Xirrus screen shot and my cmd ipconfig when i learn how to get it on to this website.
For the last couple of months we've been having problems keeping a connection to the internet. The green light turns red and everything loses connection while it cycles back on. I've tried everything I can think of and am at a total loss as to how to fix this.
The ISP has been out twice to check and replace all the lines and install a cat 5 line to no avail. I thought it might be an ip conflict dropping the connection so I assigned everything its own address and that didn't solve anything. I have a brand new netgear n300 router/modem that replaced the Actiontec one the ISP provided because I thought that might be failing, no change. The next thing I tried is to turn off and disconnect everything from the network except my laptop to see if it was a certain device causing the problems. It seemed to be going well for about an hour when I lost connection again. The next thing I tried is to hook it directly to the router and turn off the wireless to see if that worked any better, connection still dropped. When the guy was over here replacing the lines, he mentioned that he had just come from another house on our block having similar problems so now I'm thinking maybe they have to fix the lines on the poles. It seems to me that the most likely thing is that the connection is dropping from the ISP to the router, what I could try before I called them up to tell them the problem is definitely not on my end.
I have had comcast for 4 years and for the last two years my comcast connection had been dropping. At the time I didn;t take it as a big deal because I have bad connection but not it's way too frequent to ignore. I have gotten a new router and exchanged a modem from comcast. Basically at a random time of the day internet just goes off. To fix it, I have to go up to the router and disconnect and reconnect the router. Even sometimes it doesn't fix the connection so now to fix the dropped internet everytime I do the following procedure: Unplug ethernet cable from modem --> Unplug the modem --> unplug the cable that connects the modem and a Y-extension for TV and internet
I'm looking to improve my connectivity,as the internet drops out a few times a day.Let me explain - I hope I'm correct in my assumptions.Every few hours, my PS3 will have a DNS error, and upon checking my iPhone, I notice that it's switched from wifi over to 3G and there seems to be a loss of connection. I cannot reconnect to the internet until I've restarted my router, or 'forgotten' and rejoined the network.
Additionally, we have an Apple TV, and connection drops out about 3 or 4 times every hour, which is very frustrating when trying to watch a movie.
I've had it for a little over a year and its always been really good with internet connection, strength-wise and speed, never dropping below 95% and just a Megabyte or two off from my corded computer. I have a high end d-link network card in two other computers as well and they each experience the same problem. So something is up with the router. Frequently, when I connect this specific computer to the internet, it drops wireless signal completely and won't connect for any computer for a couple minutes. Then suddenly, out of the blue i'll regain connection. Also, i used to always get a strong 35 Mbps on wireless, which I still do on corded, but now i only do on rare occasion. Most of the time i'm stuck at 12 or 14 and even more often, it drops to 1 or 2. Very unstable. I have reset it it multiple times, along with my modem, still same old problem persists...
My WOW internet connection keep dropping out. I recently went form AT&T dsl to Wow but as I surf my internect connection drops out. Could I have some software conflicts in my computer since I converted from At&t connection to WOW. I used a At&T Gateway 2 wire router before installing WOW. I don't have a router connect to WOW at this time. I am directly connected to their modem.
