Firmware 10.0.4 April 2012 WinXP SP3 AT&T Basic DSL Slipstream 5100 wired and wireless connection constantly drops then re-establishes connection every 15-30 seconds or minutes. How to fix this ventilation is not a problem nor the power source very close to switching to dd-wrt if no solution in 48hrs?
I have a Linksys WRT120N wireless router that I have had for almost three years now. It recently has started dropping all internet connections very randomly, sometime multiple times in an hour. I will lose my connection to the internet and connection locally to other laptops then it will reconnect. It is also disconnecting when wired as well as I have a playstation using a wired connection out of the router and it loses connection all the time as well. What is causing this, I am pretty sure it is the router and not my internet service.
my Linksys E3200 router is somehow slowing my internet download speed by a lot. Direct wired connection from computer to modem gets me around 200Mbps download speed, but if I connect thru my Linksys E3200 router (wired connection, not wifi), the download speed goes down significantly to ~70Mbps. The E3200 is only connected to the modem and my computer (i.e. I have unplugged all other devices from the E3200 router). Are there setttings in the E3200 that can potentially cause it to limit the speed or could this be caused by something else?
I have 2 computers connected to the router (via cable). The problem is that have to reboot the router several times per day because one or both computers lose their internet connection. This happens regardless if one or two computers are turned on.
Router: DIR-615 Firmware version 4.00 Hardware version: D1 Computer1: Win7 64 Computer2: Win Vista 64
Im currently living downstairs from the router. Its in a "secure location." Long story short, the person I live with is very private about the particular room its located in. I know the router is a "N" model Linkys.I installed the software that came with the PCI adapter (NETGEAR N300) and everything seemed smooth, then I constantly kept dropping connection. I then assumed the driver needed updating so I uninstalled the driver and re-downloaded the recommended driver from the netgear website,Things to know:
-I don't do any heavy gaming
-When I disable and reable the PCI adapter driver from device manager I can reconnect to the internet rather quickly.
-When uploading a video to youtube I found the connection to be more stable, but slower. (could of been a coincidence)
Currently I've been running "TCP view" to try to find something in the background taking bandwidth. I searched all the applications that it lists and nothing seems to be abnormal.
The issue is Windows7 (notebook ASUS N61Ja connected through Wi-Fi) loses and can not find again network HDD storage (Western Digital My Book Live 3TB). Rebooting of the notebook works but after I close HDD folder window the issue comes back. The issue exists only with Wi-Fi connection. Everything is fine using LAN connection.
my wifes laptop to working better for internet connectivity.Now my mother's is having similiar issues, constantly losing connection and what notI did a couple of scans using the programs that were recommended on that previous threadHere are the logs.
First of all, this is how my connection looks like:
PC & Xbox 360 -> Router (Linksys WRT54GL with DD-WRT firmware) -> Modem (Arris TM602B) Everything is working just fine, except for every now and then (sometimes a few times per day), when my modem decides to "stop working" for a second or two. I do not know if it is exactly the modem, but i guess that it is.
What happens, is that for a second or two, all the lights on modem stop blinking or turns off, except "Power", "DS" and "US". Those lights stays turned on. After a second or two, all the lights continues working normally.
It would not even be that big of an issue, as i would not mind if my internet radio has stopped working for a second or if i had to wait a second before continuing with browsing the web, but it becomes an annoying issue, while i am playing video games on Xbox Live. This is what causes me to disconnect from an online game, even though, everything works normally after - until it happens again.
I called my internet provider to come fix the problem and my internet was working PERFECTLY. Until, it started to mess up again. I don't know, what's wrong with it AT all. The Linksys box is working fine, the ROUTER is working BUT, my internet keeps dropping and takes HOURS upon HOURS to come back on, UNTIL I reset the Linksys box. Then it stays on for a bit. A few hours or a few minutes then suddenly, "No internet access."
I have a 3COM cable modem and a WRT54GSV4 with v1.06.1 firmware for a home network. I have 2 desktop computers hardwired to the WRT54G and use 2 different laptops with internal wireless cards. All run Win XP Pro. I have spent numerous hours on the phone with Linksys support and always get the same response (reboot, unplug, reset, etc.)
I have bought Linksys E3200 less than month ago.I have setup it, connected HD (WD My Book 1TB) through USB and it work good, without any problem.Than week ago, I turned off the router, because of my vacation. Yesterday, I came back, turned on the router. WiFi was working good, cable connection too. But there was no connection to HD. I had checked information about HD on admin page, router understood that it is HD, but not provided share access to folder, also, there was no button, to setup it.I disconnected HD, tried to connect it using the Cisco Connect, it provided mistake with USB connection to HD and than with HTTP connection to router. I disconnected HD, tried to connect it manually: connect HD -> go to admin page -> refresh to show HD -> admin page freeze... -> reboot of router manually.
There was a lot of tries to connect HD, but all was failed.I connect HD to computer, it works successfully.I checked connection to router through USB, using my card reader and SD flash card, it works successfully.Information about HW:
1. Linksys E3200, last update of firmware for German (was bought using German Amazon) country. (Cannot check it now, if needed will check) 2. Computer: Windows XP SP3 3. WD My Book 1TB (NTFS)
I did not do a MAC Address Clone, when I connected it I just called my ISP and they enabled it. Internet connection with all devices right there, no problem.
Problem started next day, every day I have to do a hard reset because when I wake up I have no connection with all devices (1 Ipad, 2 Iphones, 2 PCs, 1 Xbox 360, 1 PS3): My SSID is seen on the network but no device can connect to it.
I changed the Channels to manual as said on other threads, but didn't work.
In addition to that, when I try connecting my PC with the ethernet cable to the router -instead of wireless-, I have no internet connection on the PC and any other device that I try to reconnect to the router wirelessly can't connect anymore (have to do a hard reset again and unplug the ethernet cable).

I have the WRT400N router and using windows 7 (on this computer). It works perfectly with any computer I use in the house (there's 3). As soon as I open a laptop, its connected. My iPhone (we have 2) and an iTouch, are a different story. They connect, stay connected sometimes for 5 minutes, sometimes 5 hours, then will drop the connection out of nowhere. It doesn't matter how close or far I am from the router. Sometimes I'll get a message that I have an incorrect password (which it's not, which is why it DOES work). Sometimes I don't get a message at all (on the phones I'll just notice its on E/3G). Now, looking through the database I noticed there is a program for the valet routers that lets you add the phones, yet this doesn't apply to mine.
The tech in live chat told me it was the phones. I know its not as I had a wireless modem before this, and I never once lost a signal or had it ask me for an incorrect password.
My E3200 is having issues with keeping the speed up on wireless G. I'm about 20 feet away from the E3200 and there is 1 6in wall between me and the E3200. My connection will not hold 54Mbps, its constantly dropping to 36Mbps, even down to 5.5Mbps faily often. Around 30 feet away there i will lose internet connection yet my laptop says excellent connection to wireless.
Often my router drops connection to all my devices. Multiple times a day. It's only for a minute or so, but it's annoying. I'm using a Linksys Wireless-N router (WRT160N) with WEP encryption. I'm running two Windows 7 laptops, LG BluRay player, Apple TV, Xbox 360 (Wired) iPhone 4, and a iPad 2. It doesn't matter if I'm browsing the web, watching Netflix, or playing a game, the connection gets lost. As we speak it happened again. I have no clue on what to do. I've reconfigured it multiple times. Firmware has been updated months ago.
I bought a Linksys router last summer for my PC and Xbox. The PC and XBox are hardwired into the router. About two weeks ago, my router began dropping connection throughout the day. Sometimes it happens 3+ times in an hour. Other times it works for several hours before it drops.I upgraded the firmware as one fix and did a hard reset of the router. Still drops connection.I changed the MTU to 1400 and it worked fine for several hours but then dropped again the next morning. Also, like others on the forums, when I changed the MTU and hit Save Changes, it just ran and ran, never timed out...but never showed that it finished the command to save (if you get my meaning).I downloaded the Cisco Wireless Magic program to troubleshoot. It tells the same thing everytime. Unplug your router for 10 seconds and start over...My PC sometimes flashes a warning when I am restarting the router that I am getting Limited or NO Connectivity.
I have a problem with my E3200 that has happened at least 4 times since I first purchased, installed and configured it. Initially I thought it might be something with Comcast, but a) I never had the problem with my Linksys WRT54G router and b) It seems I can now duplicate the issue by saving a config file and restoring it.The specific issue appears to be somewhat random. At some point the connection to the Internet simply stops for no apparent reason. I am able to ping the router and connect to it. I am also able to drop and renew connections to the cable modem successfully. Furthermore, I can ping my network side of the router, as well as the external address handed to my router by the cable modem, and the cable modem gateway address, but still no connection to the Internet.The only solution to my problem has been to restore the factory defaults to the router and reconfigure it from scratch, which does seem to fix the issue for a time until it occurs again. FYI, I do not use the Cisco connect software because I have several custom port and QOS configs that are necessary for an IP Phone and other hardware on my network.
i am a total n00b when it comes to wireless routers etc,.. i bought this router [E3200] about six mths ago, it has been working just fine untill a couple days ago, wher i woud be on the internet and all of a sudden, the internet connection drops, i am using a cable modem [ARRIS TM722G] ,i did a reset on the e3200 and put restore the settings that did last over night
I upgraded 3 days ago from a (WRT160N ver. 1) to a (E3200) After setting it up and syncing all the devices including the XBOX 360. After signing into Live I noticed that every time I power off and power on the console it's IP address would change causing the NAT to become moderate so I went over to the Xbox360 open the Network settings and Manually set the IP address Mac address, Gateway address. Then I opened the routers settings page and Port Forwarded the correct ranges also copied the IP address I manually entered earlier on the Xbox 360. On the router side I saved the changes restarted the console and my NAT was open, but here's the Issue now when I go to sign into Live I get a pop up saying I can't connect to Live to "Test the Connection". After I "Test the Connection" then and only then I can sign into Live.
We have a E3200 wireless router but our only connection is wireless. There is no Ethernet connection or cable modem. Presently I am unable to bring up the web page ie...10.100.x.x for entering the id/pw to login. Router is setup with default settings. Is there a setting that needs to be changed from the setup menu or this type of setup will not work with this router.
I have to reboot my router a couple of times per day because I lose WAN access. This occurs with both the wireless and ethernet connections. Basically, I see that I'm connected to the router, but have a self-assigned IP. Power cycling the router does the trick. I never had this problem before, so I'm wondering what's up. The firmware has long been up to date. Router version is 8.0.
So i have this old WRT54GX v2. It have been running fine for the last ~5years. But since this morning i'm losing my wired connection after about 10 sec og connectivity, can't even ping it when it drops. If i turn it off for 10 sec the same problem occurs. Tried both static ip and dhcp. Wireless doesn't work either.
I have an E4200 v1 wireless router. Intermittently, my hard wired laptop (and hard wired desktop) loose Internet connnectivity and when I look at the 4200 I see the status light flashing slowly like it was just rebooted. I am runnong 1.0.04, have reset to factory, reflashed the 1.0.04 code and done a 30-30-30 reset (so far no drops since the 30-30-30 reset but we'll see).
I have a WRT400N that loses connections for my PC and other devices in my house (IPHONE, IPAD etc.).Sometimes it fixes itself other times I need to to a hard reset to boot the router and then evryone can signin again
I often loose internet connection recently while online. I always check my status on 192.168.1.1 when this happen to see if i'm getting 0's ISP but it does not say that.I also tried ipconfig/release and renew I also tried right click wireless icon and click "repair"Power cycle always worked for me in the past but today to my dissappointment it did not.after power cycling I check my status on 192.168.1.1 and now it indicates 0's.
Currently I have the ea 6500 and it seems to lose connection to my IPAD 3 often. I have setup the IPAD to connect to 5ghz connection and it will still lose connection. Is this an ongoing issue? I also noticed that it signal stength isn't fully covering my home like my linksys wrt54g did.
I've been having issues with my e2500 router. I've found my connection dropping occasionally both with a wired connection and wirelessly on other computer. My desktop is connected directly to the router via ethernet and I've been keeping an eye on my network preference pane. Every 10 minutes or so the connection will be lost and computer says the cable is unplugged. It then resolves after 2 minutes.
I'm running OSX 10.8, firmware 1.0.07. Done a factory reset, power cycles etc. Configured with Cisco connect and manually multiple times. I've swapped out ethernet cables just to be sure it wasn't a cable issue.
Internet is fine when I've got the computer hooked up directly to the modem. No connection issues.
I bought this new router, and at first it seemed like it was working okay, but then i started noticing that my roku box (watch netflix) was cutting out all the time, losing the connection from the new router. I also began to notice that if more than one person was online, pages took forever to load, can't watch youtube videos and even listening to music online like Pandora became difficult. Also it says that I can get up to 300 mbps but when i run the test I get .50 download and about 1.8 upload Details About Router & Connection,Its a Linksys E1500 with the capability of up to 6 devices and my IPS is Comcast.
I have a WRT54G router anf DSL modem. My router keeps losing connection, wired and wireless (My connection is not visible on any laptop). I tried briged mode on the modem and I tried the configuration CD. Everything works for some months or weeks. Sometimes the CD setup asks me for manual configuration. I am using modem to desktop connection?
I recently replaced an old Linksys with a Cisco E3200. All our devices get "stuck" periodically and can connect to the E3200 but not the internet. We power cycle the E3200 and all is fine. But only for a period of time, then we need to power cycle again. The range is less than my 4 year old Linksys was also, devices maybe 30 feet lose their connection even more quickly, forcing more frequent power cycling.
