My connection drops whenever it is under load. Anything can make it drop, from 2 youtube videos playing the same time to downloading something from steam. Im using wifi and I have tried a lot of things in case something interferes like changing channels. My signal strength is great and my isp and speed is fine and my connection is 54mbps. What is kind of weird is that my wifi doesnt disconnect it just stops transmitting data and the only way to fix it is to reset the router or unplug and replug my usb wifi adapter. I downloaded the wireless tool from this website, since my windows language(Windows XP) is in greek so is the reg file and some characters are just weird symbols. To Kedar:Unfortunately, no its impossible to change the language of your OS ive tried it before, the only way is to buy the English version and reinstall windows.
Wired works normally, and wireless is otherwise stable, except when under heavy load. E.g. if I initiate a large TimeMachine backup over wifi to my NAS, it will fail and the wifi will drop requiring a power cycle.I have tried a similar transfer over ethernet (~1.7Tb) and although the transfer speed wasn't great (~10MBs, likely due to NAS drive bottleneck), it completed without a problem.
If I try copying ~150Gb over wifi, however, it barely lasts 30 minutes without dropping out.Once the wifi drops, it still connects, but nothing works (I am unable to even connect to the web interface using the local IP). Other devices connected already via ethernet or 2.5Ghz still function normally, but the 5Ghz just fails, and if I try initiating a new connection to the 2.5Ghz it doesn't work until I power-cycle the router.As far as overheating goes, I'm not sure it is an environmental issue... I have the router standing upright in an open space so there is good airflow around it.
I've been having this problem on and off for a few years but never this frequent as of now.My connection randomly drops out and I have to disconnect cable from my modem and reconnect it and reboot and stuff like that to get it back up. Sometime even connection just drops and connects right back.Now I'm almost confident its the modem's fault, I have recently replaced the modem and the router
My DIR-655 randomly drops its connection. All devices on the network behave as though the network is not available, then again sees the network, and reconnects (all devices being two laptops, three smartphones, and a PS3...same symptoms). My modem does not have any problems, and I have tried resetting the router, but it has not worked.
We have 7 computers, only 2 are hardwired, and a wireless modem (gateway) with a 6 port hub attached for the wired pc's. My son's pc is wireless, and every day when he goes to get on it for school (he's homeschooled through a virtual academy), the LAN icon, instead of bars, has the yellow dot on it indicating connection. He has to reconnect every day, and sometimes even throughout the day if he leaves the computer long enough (such as when the monitor goes off, there is no screensaver). How do I fix it (Windows 7) to where his pc will stay connected and not disconnect when the pc hibernates?
just found your site poking around for some information. I'm pretty green with routing and firewalling so I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction.I'm trying to setup a remote access VPN for the off site employees we have. I would eventually like to have this setup to use either the cisco VPN client or the webVPN option, but this question is about my VPN client setup.I'm using a Cisco ASA 5505 at the head end and the Cisco VPN client 5.0.06.0160 on the client side.In the logs the client authenticates, grabs an IP, DNS and domain info and then drops the connection.
I am using a desktop computer and have the router downstairs so I am using a wireless usb to connect to the internet. My router is a Linksys E1000 and the wireless adapter is a Netgear WG111v2. The problem is Every few mins I drop connection for may 5-30 secs and then the internet is fine. During that time it does not say I only have local connection or anything like that it constantly says I have internet connection even when I dont. It is very noticable when i am playing an online game on my computer. I will get a few mins in and then it will drop kicking me out of the game and by the time I get kicked out my Internet is reconnected and I can join again.
My router drops my internet connection at least once a day. When the router does this, my wireless network connection disappears from the network list. I have to disconnect router from plug and plug it back in to work again. If I hard-wire laptop to router or modem, I still do not get internet unless I unplug and re-plug router.
I have a dual boot pc. plus wireless adaptor wpn111 (v3 drivers)either XP pro or windows 7 platforms.when usiing any app to download any torrent file, pc drops internet connection on windows 7 but does not if i download via XP pro?initally download goes very fast then drops connection and i have to disconnect the wireless adaptor?
This issue has been going on for a few weeks now, i will be using the internet and it will suddenly drop out. My computer is connected to my router, this connection is fine it is just the INTERNET connection that drops out. When this happens all of the computers on the network are affected.
I recently bought a new HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC and have been experiencing problems when connecting to my personal wireless network. It seems that whenever I'm downloading anything or using the connection extensively I'll lose internet connection and the wireless icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen will show an orange star to indicate that connections are available. However if I go to available networks I can immediately reconnect to the network I was on.
I have other notebooks that run on XP that do not have this issue and use the connection without a problem. Also when I connect my notebook directly to my belkin router via Ethernet cable the connection has issues. I'm running my computer on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and my Wireless adapter is an Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n Wifi adapter which appears to have up to date drivers.
I already have an existing wireless network set up. Since buying a laptop the internet wireless connection drops out from the laptop after 'sleeping'. I then have to troubleshoot to get the connection back again.
Just starting a couple of days ago my internet started dropping about every 10-20 minutes. The problem is only with this computer. I have a laptop right next to me and it works fine no problem and two other PCs that don't have any issues so I don't think it is the router. I have scanned my computer with different antivirus software and it's clean. The computer is always connected with a full 5 bars and says it has internet access but sometimes it drops and in order to get it up and running again I unplug the wireless adapter and plug it in again. At first I thought it might have been the adapter so I swapped it out for a new one and I'm still having the same problems. My wireless is unencrypted. This keeps happening over and over again and I am stumped on what to do.

My second computer on my network randomly drops out all the time. I have a WRT54G router that is working fine with my first computer (Windows 7) but the second computer (Windows XP) is having issues. It'll be running completely fine and you can even get on the internet after it's been on for a few hours but after a few minutes on the internet (10min about) it drops out completely and can't reconnect.
My wired/wireless internet connection drops every 15-20 minutes for a few seconds at a time. I have a Cisco Linksys E2500 which is bridged to a actiontec mi424wr router (Verizon Fios router). My fiance's computer is wired while my laptop is wireless.When I originally set up the network I had 2 mi424wr bridged together but it dropped very frequently. Switching the router and upgrading the firmware has made in happen less but it is still frequent enough to warrant trouble.
I have a DIR-615, hardware version: C1, firmware version 3.12NA and my issue is that it keeps dropping my VPN connection after 12 minutes. Sometimes it'll go longer than 12 minutes but on average right at 12 minutes of my connection, it drops. This happens whether I'm using the wireless or hard wired to the router. As a test, I ran a continuous ping on a computer on my internal network and also to a computer on my corporate network. When I'm VPN'd in, both pings are successful. Once the router kills my VPN session, the pings to my internal network are successful. So the router isn't rebooting or anything like that. My VPN session will automatically reconnect, but I'm stumped.
So I've bought a D-Link 815 on 21st June(day before yesterday) and my connection drops every 10-12 hours and i have to close and open the router(the 192.168.0.1 site won't even work)...i'm using PPPOE connection..
I've bought a D-Link because i heard it's the best on the market and i play online poker so i need a stable connection all day long and more important i need my IP to remain at one value for a long time and not change every 12 hours(i have dynamic IP)
I have a DIR-601 and the wireless part of the router as far as i can tell, it drops for about a minute and then reconnects on its own, any thoughts? This i getting rather frustrating because it also does with my previous router. I have changed all the wires included the cable from the wall to the main cable box.
I have been having some trouble lately with my internet since I have been home from college. I have no problem connected to my router wirelessly, and I always have a strong connect seeing as I am no more than 15 feet from the router. The problem arises sporadically for different intervals. One second I will be browsing the internet with no problem, and the next second I am unable to load any pages.
I was just in a Skype conversation with one of my friends and had a perfect connection with them. I was on twitter at the same time, when suddenly the pages stopped loading. The weird thing is, my connect was still strong while video chatting and it did not cut out. Why my web pages will not load while I still apparently have a strong connection.
I am trying to track down a problem I am having with one laptop. Other wireless devices on the network are not showing the same problem. Connecting to the router by ethernet resolves the problem.Over a 120 second period, the wireless connection drops and reconnects several times. Each time it drops it almost immediately picks up and re-connects. The "down time" is usually between 5 and 20 seconds.I have updated the driver for the wireless card (it was out of date) but this did not resolve.
Reading posts here - I see you typically need to see a WiFi inspector screen shot - which I have attached. You can see a couple of "drops" on the graph.
My internet connection drops intermittent along with everything else that is setup with the router. The router is linksys wrt110 and the cable modem is linksys befcmu10. Both of them probably needs updating but, can't seem to update and I can't access the web based server at 192.168.1.1
I have a PC upstairs, let's call it (Peter-PC), my dad has a PC downstairs (Kris-PC) and I just setup a linux home server downstairs as well called (server).Now, Peter-PC is connected through Linksys powerline adapters to the router, and server and Kris-PC are connected directly to the router as well.Peter-PC stays constantly connected to the internet, only until Kris-PC is turned on, then Peter-PC connection goes mental and begins to disconnect, reconnect, can't ping the router. As soon as Kris-PC is turned off,Peter-PC is back to normal.However, if Kris-PC and server are both on, they both operate fine. Seems like Peter-PC is the only unfortunate one.I mean the powerline adapters have been working for over 3 years now, and the Powerline light is flashing meaning they are communicating, I highly doubt it's the adapters.
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.
New laptop, connected to my home network which is very stable and has no history of connection issues. After about 10 seconds the laptop drops the connection. Sometimes it'll come back for a while sometimes not, haven't observed any pattern in this yet, All I've done since starting the computer for the first time is installed all the junk that comes with it (Nero stuff mostly) and installed all windows updates (there were over 60 of them) and AVG Free edition. Before doing all that the connection was still not right but it did hold for a lot longer than 10 seconds. It held for over an hour downloading programs like Itunes, AVG and Firefox, Going to control panel > network sharing centre when the connection is down I see the yellow exclamation mark between my computer and my network. Troubleshooting this resets the network adapter, gives me the error 'The default gateway is not available' and says that it is fixed. The connection then works again for about 10 seconds and drops once more.
Here's the problem, there are 4-5 computers connected to their router's network through both wire and wireless. Some of the other computers are used to stream tv dramas and what not, and it really kills the connection and I am barely even able to open a simple webpage.
I just got a our internet going through our phone modem instead of a separate modem, a new router, and some new rewiring because lighting hit near my house and blew out everything, but now on the computer I built my internet connection drops really low randomly and nothing loads. It happens at random times and for a random periods of time. I ran malwarebytes and super antispyware and nothing showed up. I connect wirelessly with a asus usb adapter.I also tried a different usb adapter that I just bought and no change, and I tried changing channels on the router.Also we have three other laptops in the house and none of them are having problems. It shows me connected with five bars and good signal it just drops to almost nothing speeds.
no matter what device is used to connect to our Linksys WRY54G v2.0 Router, whether it be CAT6, internal wireless card (Intel Wireless LAN (802.11a/b/g/n), or USB wireless card (Linksys AE1000), she drops connections at random and frequent times and has to disconnect the device and reconnect to get internet back. She is still connected to the network though. The issue has been becoming more and more frequent the past few days and has been ongoing for a few months. We are at wits end with the issue. I looked on Linksys' website for updated firmware for the router AND the AE1000, no new firmware and same driver that is installed for the AE1000. We have tried to enable Multimedia Environment, Disable 802.11, unchecked "Automatically turn off device to save power", changed router channels from 6 to 1, have uninstalled ALL third party firewalls and AV/Spyware/Malware/Adware removal programs (but not before scanning the system), and lastly tried the DHCP Braodcast Flag Fix.
Lately I have been having a problem with my internet connection randomly dropping off and me having to use the 'troubleshoot problems' feature of Windows 7 to reset the wireless adapter in the computer.
Any app i can install which will monitor my lan connection for dropouts? i have searched but can't find any that work. I just want a simple app that will note down each time the lan loses connection and keeps a log so i can be sure if its the computer or the network at fault.
My wireless connection randomly drops, or has no Internet connection, or says it has connection and Internet but no web pages load. Usually, what happens is it says I have no Internet connection. I have to disconnect and reconnect to get the Internet back. My ethernet connected computer never loses connection.
I am running Windows 7 with a Realtek wireless card. I have updated the driver to the latest. The wireless router is a D-Link 615 e1 using DD-WRT. The router is hooked up to a Brighthouse Arris TM402G/110 modem for internet access (note: this is my second modem. I had the same problem with another modem. Unfortunately, I don't remember the name.)
When the router is connected to a U-Verse 2Wire 3800HGV modem/wireless router (with the wireless turned off) I have no Internet disconnections. Everything else is the same (I just move the Ethernet cable between the two modems). Of course, one is just a modem and the other is a NAT router/modem.
I noticed that the wireless connection has a weaker signal when connected to the Brighthouse modem then when connected to the U-Verse modem. I therefore tried to up the TX signal strength on the router. This improved the situation (and the signal strength) but I still get disconnects. I also tried setting the MSS to 1492.
Been searching threads here and all over google. I have DSL thru Century Link.Router is Zyxel pk5001z. 2 laptops being used. ( well, they were until my MB fried out.) My laptop has Win 7, my girlfriends has Vista.- Dell inspiron 1525. Only had the service for about 2 mo's. My laptop was working fine wirelessly. Hers drops constantly.Currently hers is the only one being used.Sometimes shows the red x, other times just local only.- Drops and reconnects within seconds. I have set channel to 6 and 11. disabled IPC 6 in laptop adapter, uninstalled/reinstalled wireless card in device manager, checked for newer driver, checked for firmware upgrade in modem, set to g/n only, ( no option for G only) connection strenth is full. No wirless phones, no close neighbors, etc. I have read posts indicating the routers are junk, other posts saying Vista has issues with certian routers, but nothing that pinpoints my exact problem. Also, just re-loaded Vista the other day.
My problem is that whenever I leave a torrent downloading for a few hours (using a wireless connection), my internet connection drops, both wired and wireless. I have to power cycle the modem and router to get things working again. When I plug my computer in with an ethernet cord and leave a torrent downloading, the connection doesn't drop.
I am running Windows 7, Time Warner Cable is my ISP, I am using a Netgear wireless router, and a netgear wireless card to access the signal
The problem started a week ago. While playing online video games (Battlefield 2), I will get a message on my screen telling me theres a problem with my connection. Sometimes it will only freeze up for 5-7 seconds, and sometimes it is up long enough to make me lose connection to the server.I am not having ping problems, the server is not kicking me for that.All background programs are closed, ive tried restarting everything I have thats related to internet and my computer.
I have 2 routers the first is plugged into the telephone line and has a power-line adapter plugged into it the second router which is downstairs is just to extend the range,unfortunately I have a very poor connection (wireless) and internet often drops out. I want to reset the power-line adapter but but will this mean that the connection will be lost from the second router and it is just my computer that is wrong? My trouble is that I don't think the power-line adapter is working but it might be or... its just that the they both connect between each other wirelessly? Or do they both connect to each other wirelessly? both connections from each router are pretty poor. I have updated my wireless card as well. I am not resetting the power line adapter until I know the internet is going to be fine afterwards as my Dad needs it for his work
I've recently bought a new desktop with a TL-wdn4800 wireless device. when i start up i instantly get full bars for my wireless however after about a minute, it drops down to one bar, and becomes hardly usable. i'm wondering if this is the device turning itself off and reverting back to the default inbuilt wireless device?
I have a WiFi Linksys. I am using a Macbook Silver. This has begun recently, every few hours, the internet connection will drop. The only way I can get it back up is to unplug the wifi and plug it back.
