Wireless Connection Dropping Few Times Every Day?

Mar 29, 2012

I have an airlink ar525w wireless router. My wireless connection drops out every few hours and I have to reset my router to get it up again. My wired connections work perfectly. Also, I am able to see my network as available and with full signal strength from windows but connecting to it doesn't do anything (just says connecting forever). This is not isolated to one computer. I have tried it with laptops, desktops and smartphones. The strange thing is that it works perfectly (hasn't dropped a connection for one month) if I have wireless security disabled.I have tried different types of security (WEP, WPA, WPA2), different channels (all 11 channels), assigning static IP addresses to all my devices and turning off the DHCP server on my router. But none of these settings fix the problem. would be willing to buy another router, but I was reading through reviews on newegg and every router that I saw reviews for has a few people experiencing the same problem that I described here. Is this a widespread problem that I have to live with or does this have something to do with my router specifically?

Internet Connection Dropping Multiple Times A Day

Jan 3, 2013

My internet connection is being dropped multple times a day. I have to run the troubleshooter each time and the connection is restored. How do I figure out if this is some setting in my wireless adapter or if it is the wireless adapter itself?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 Dropping Itself Several Times A Day?

Sep 20, 2012

I have an EA3500 that I installed recently to replace an old NetGear Router, everything works fine like a charm and suddenly is like the router goes down, both wired and wireless connections go down, no connection at all to the router, no internet, no nothing, the power stays on, but you can see the Leeds on the back blinking like when you do a reboot, then after a couple minutes everything comes back again, till the next drop...it happens several times a day, sometimes 3 to five times in an hour, some other times just happen 2 or 3 times a day... I have tried everything possible, changing the settings, factory defaults, firmware upgrade and roll back, MTU, different channels, even different power outlets to no avail.I wonder is I have a lemon, the worse part is I can't return to the store since the UPC code is gone (rebate) and links says they can't take it back as RMA.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Dropping Connections Several Times A Day

Apr 11, 2011

my E4200 is dropping connections several times a day.  I'd be working on my laptop, go to a webpage and bang, no connection.  A minute or so later it would reconnect.  It even appears to be doing this with a computer that is hardwired to one of the ports.  So it doesn't seem limited to just wireless.  Happens to both N and g channels as well.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Dropping Apple IPad 2 At Random Times

Feb 8, 2012

Had an E4200 for a couple of months now and have not been able to resolve an issue with the router dropping an Apple iPad 2 at random times.The E4200 is replacing a Cisco Aironet 1200, which never dropped any clients, iPad 2 or others, and never displayed any of the issues below.
TECH DETAILS:The E4200 is being used purely as an access point.  All extras are not in use and are disabled.

Firmware 1.0.03
Hardware version 1.
BASIC ISSUE:The E4200 drops an Apple iPad 2 off the 2.4 Ghz Mixed (B, G, N) network.  The user must then select the network to rejoin.  Rejoining occurs without incident.  The same issue occurs when the network is restricted to B, G.  The drops occur at what appears to be random intervals - sometimes 10 minutes apart, sometimes hours apart.  We can have as many as 6 drops in an hour.  A ping to the apple ipad shows the device stops responding to pings about 10 seconds before the user is prompted to rejoin a network.  Meanwhile, a ping to the E4200 itself from a laptop connected via the E4200 on the same radio as the ipad continues to work without fail during this incident.

1. The iPad 2's cannot connect to the 5Ghz radio.  I believe iPad 2's are supposed to support 5Ghz.

2. Both our Apple TVs do not connect to the 5Ghz radio: they fail with a "There was an error connecting to the network. Check your settings and try again. (-3914)" error.  Apple TV supports 5Ghz.

3. The admin interface for the E4200 is very slow sometimes.  Probably over 20 seconds to render some pages when it gets really bad.  As a comparison, Internet-based pages on fast sites that delivered via the E4200 itself load in less than 2 seconds.

4. The HTTPS version of the admin interface can only be connected to via Safari browers.  Both Internet Explorer 9 and Chrome 16 fail to connect with a "Connection reset" error.  In Chome, it says "Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): The connection was reset."  This is across multiple devices.  There is no issue with straight HTTP.
All other devices - including Macs and PCs - connect fine with the E4200 on both 5Ghz and 2.4 Ghz radios, even if they cannot access its admin interface via HTTPS.I've presented quite a few issues above, but the main one is the drop outs for the iPad 2 devices.  I'd present logs on drops, but the thing doesn't record any useful logs.
Basic wireless config:

Network Mode: Wireless-N Only
Channel width: Auto (20 or 40 Mhz)
Channel: Auto (DFS)
SSID Broadcast: Enabled

Internet Access Keeps Dropping At Random Times

Feb 17, 2011

I have a brand new Dell laptop running windows 7 connected to a sky router wirelessly. My internet connection randomly just drops. At 1st I could just click on the yellow triangle and troubleshoot and it would reset the network adapter. I cannot do that now - Im having to disable the adapter and the enable it and Im back on the internet.I have set it up so I am connecting via a manual IP address as I wondered if when the kids PS3 was connecting it was pinching my Ip address.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Drops Connection Several Times A Day

Jan 23, 2011

I have a WRT120N router .It has something to do with turning on or re-introducing certain wireless devices into the area. When I come home with my iPhone & my wife is on her computer, suddenly the wifi stops. And vice-versa. It's ridiculous. I'm not a computer programmer but if I was I'm pretty sure this would be a no-brainer to fix. Especially if the company that paid me took pride in their products.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N Drops Connection Several Times A Day?

Apr 9, 2012

my router drops connection several times a day. I have to unplug the router every day so that my devices can stay connected. I hate when this happens late at night when i'am upstairs and have to go 2 stairs down to get internet on my devices. For example if i want to connect my iPhone to my Wireless network it gives me an error with: 'No connection can be astablished with this network'.

Internet Connection Keeps Disconnecting At Random Times?

Oct 26, 2012

I have fiber optic Internet with static ip and keeps disconnecting at very random times. It started 3 weeks ago, before it worked perfect. Most of times dcing 3 times per hour. But sometimes working for hours without dcs. Usually disconnects only for half minutes then reconnect, it can be very annoying. The provider keep saying that need change router. I'm tried three different of routers already, but keeps disconnecting. I'm tried connect the net directly into my cpu, without router, but not worked, dc-ing too. I tried ping the default gateway when its disconnected, and its saying: request timed out.What else can i try? It should be, that the provider has too many clients, and their router collapsing?

Connection Intermittently Drops At Random Times

May 9, 2012

We recently moved and upgraded our internet service from 1.5 Mbps to 4Mbps with CenturyLink. However, since our service was activated last Thursday, the internet connection intermittently drops and will not recover unless I reboot the modem. The period of up-time will last anywhere between fifteen seconds to several hours, usually falling along the five-to-ten minute range. No difference when using ethernet/wifi. The DSL light stays on, and the Internet light remains on as well.

IBM Desktop / Network Connection Dropped Several Times A Day

May 20, 2011

The computer in question is one of 30 computers in the same office that is not currently experiencing this same thing. All connected though the same switch, patch panel, etc. Testing has proven that the switch and line is fine.We have a server set up for all of the multifunction printers on property and we simply map the printers through this unit.We have an exchange server for email.File server... for... files. Okay, here is the situation. This IBM desktop will be connected to everything, able to print, email, connect to files, etc etc.Then, or so it seem, will just lose its connection. no email printing etc. She is asked to put in her network credentials again. and usually this works. (it seems that the network dropping out may take up to 3 minuets to fully restore and she tries to put in her credentials too soon).After each event she is able to restart her computer or type in her credentials and get back to work.. after mapping the printer again.

D-Link DIR-655 :: REVB Wired Connection Resets 100's Of Times Each Day

Jan 20, 2012

I bought a new DIR-655 REVB router, I already own the first version of the DIR-655 and worked fine, but the wireless range wasn't always the highest upstairs in my house and I was hoping with REVB they had improved the DIR-655's range.  I'm not a big wireless guy, meaning if I can use a hardwire connection I will use it, so my house is pretty well wired, but for my daughter and son's ipod and Zune the wireless connection was weak in their upstairs bedrooms.  It has been a disaster, the wired connections gets disconnected constantly, I say in the subject title 100's of times a day and I don't think I am exaggerating.  It started with Netflix and I thought my son was crazy, how could new router do this, but it was doing it everywhere.  It is hard to download files because I lose my connection.  I have DSL through Windstream.  My solution is to reinstall my old DIR-655.

Desktop's Wireless Connection Keeps Dropping?

Feb 1, 2012

I recently got a (new) Dell Inspiron 570 desktop. It didn't come with a wireless adapter, so I picked up a (new) TP-Link TL-WN781ND Wireless N PCIe adapter. Easy installation, worked immediately. Connection's not perfect, but I get 3 bars from across a house so it's about what I expected.Unfortunately, every little bit the connection drops. Sometimes it comes back within seconds, sometimes it lasts for several minutes; sometimes I won't notice it happening for hours, sometimes it drops every few seconds. There are two other computers on the network that don't suffer connection issues, and I've been able to test with my iPod that it's still connected at the same moment as my Dell is not.I tried updating the driver automatically, which oddly enough installed the driver for an Atheros AR9285, a different wireless adapter; and although everything seemed to still be working I gave it long enough to make sure the problem was still there and downloaded the correct driver from TP-Link's site, which didn't fix it either.

D-Link DWA-130 / Wireless Dropping Connection

Jun 21, 2012

My internet has never had many issues, but since 2 days ago it has been frequently dropping the connection every so often (maybe every 10-30 minutes). The speed jumps all over the place, reaching as high as 2mb/s and then dumping down to 0.14 kbps while going up and down. I am not sure what the issue is. I am running wirelessly on my desktop using a D-Link DWA-130 adapter.

Wireless Laptop Connection Keeps Dropping?

Aug 11, 2011

But i can still navigate around on a computer. So i have a gateway laptop, and a cisco router in my parent bedroom. They have computer's connected into it with a wired connection. My laptop is a wireless one. The connection will drop roughly 10 times a day. And the odd thing is , to get the connection to show back up on my wireless connection lists, i need to restart the router or it doesnt show. Its not a problem with signal strength, and obviously no problem with the router as my parent's stay connected during this. I called my ISP, they told me to call gateway. I did , and after that, i will never in my life associate with anything gateway ever, ever , again. I'm sure its a setting or software issue

Wireless Connection Frequently Dropping

Jul 23, 2011

I have a wireless Motorola modem that is hardwired to a computer that is usually off. This modem services 4 other computers in the house wirelessly and all experience the same frequent connection drops regardless of connection quality. I've had problems with this modem for as long as I can remember but it never bothered me because the problems were too far and few between; now, the connection has progressed to dropping within minutes of use.When the connection is dropped I cannot access my modem (plugging the ip address into my web browser)The connection stays acceptable for a while after resetting but always reverts back to being a piece of crap. The connection drops most frequently when under heavy load i.e. steam downloading a game at my connection's full capacity, just only more frequently. The connection will still drop within the hour if I'm downloading anything or not.

I've tried rerouting the wireless modem into another wireless router before but it caused me new problems.Before this all started within last week, I contracted some spyware that redirected Google search links and also killed my connection frequently along with terrible slowdowns. I gave up trying to clean the system and reformatted but my internet connection still drops and it's now affecting all computers that connect to this modem. [code]

Wireless Repeater Keeps Dropping Connection?

Dec 26, 2012

As I am more of a hardware guy and pretty clueless about networking, I thought I'd come here because I am pretty frustrated right now.So yesterday, I got an Amped Wireless SR10000 Repeater for Christmas. I had it set up and working with no problems. However, this message did pop up when it was finished:

I ignored it (stupid me) because I didn't know what to do. The connection worked fine for a while, but now a day later, the connection keeps dropping. I would assume it is because of this.I did a bit of research and it seems like setting up a static IP will fix the problem, but I have no idea how to do that.

Laptop Dropping Wireless Connection?

Oct 6, 2011

If i run an open wireless network without encryption, the laptop is always picks up the connection. However when I got to WPA encryption, the laptop works fine until I leave it in standby or shut it down. In order to connect it after leaving in on standby or a shutdown I need to reset my Linksys router.I have another laptop that never seems to drop the wireless connection, so I don't think it's a router issue, but something on the other laptop.

802.11n USB Wireless USB Networking Adapter Keeps Dropping Connection?

Nov 4, 2012

I have an 802.11n USB Wireless Lan card on a desktop with Windows 7 home premium 64-bit. Whenever im searching the web, say i go to NFL.Com to check my fantasy squad, the pages wont load, and i see my connection has been dropped, now every time i click on the signal bars on the bottom right hand corner, it says no connection, but after about 2 seconds of clicking on it, it connects again. So in order for me to get my connection back, i have to click on my signal bar to get it back, which is ridiculous. I have other computers in my home, all of which do not have this problem, so its definitely something in my desktop, i also have about 3 wireless adapters i've tested it on, all of which do the exact same thing on my desktop only. I've also went to power management under configuration for my USB adapter and turned off the ''Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power'', it still drops my connection every 3-5 minutes.

D-LINK 615 Wireless Router Keeps Dropping Connection

Jun 6, 2012

To start off, the wireless router we have is a D-LINK 615 Wireless N 300 Router.We've had this router for a couple of months now and only recently has it been giving us grief. When we first got it (it was actually a friend's who had lent it to me but have been using ever since), it was working like a charm. No dropped connections, etc.However, as of a few weeks ago, we've began to notice that the connection has been dropping constantly. It started one a day around the same time (in the evening) and ever since has happened multiple times per day.The connection will either drop all together (lights still going on flashing) or there will be a limited connection (as stated in Windows) and I can't do anything. This happens for my laptop as well as my PS3. My desktop is hard-wired so there's never a connection issue there. Power cycling the router usually fixes the issue but again, this is constant and keeps disconnecting for some reason and having to power cycle every day is annoying.All the lights are always flashing like normal but the connection just drops off.
