Q: Wireless Router - Disconnects When Loading Pics...

Hi all and girls i just wondered if someone could perhaps help me with this problem i am having with firefox and also IE and my wireless connection.

For some sites, and im not sure why, it initiates an error message.

It also seems to be with certain sites when trying to load images, etc...

This is the error message...



The Router is a BT Voyager 2001, Windows XP is my operating system.

Any help would be really appreciated guys, as it is a very annoying issue.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have a D-Link model DIR-625, and it always seems to disconnect when my mother logs on her computer. Is there some kind of setting on her computer that could be disconnecting us? When my dad is on his I never disconnect which is why I am wondering it must be something on her computer that's interfering with the signal or something. If I reset the router while she's still on, It will disconnect again within a few minutes. So where can I check if it could be her computer that's interfering with the signal?

A:wireless router disconnects when...

can we see an ipconfig /all from your PC and from your mothers - make sure we know which is which
ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

Good afternoon everyone,

Please excuse the way that I may communicate as I am fairly new to posting on here.

I have been having problems with my fathers computer. He currently has a linksys B network card and also has the capability of hooking up with an ethernet cable as he is close enough to it. The software he is using is windows XP

The problem that he has is that while he is using any of his applications, such as on facebook, the computer will intermittently lose connection completely. At first i though that it may have been a problem with the network card but then found out that it is also happening when directly connected.

I run on the same router in the house and use a dell Latitude E6500 with windows vista and no problems staying online.

Does anyone have any possible idea as to how to resolve this. I am in the process of ordering a new network card for him that is a 802.11g instead of a 802.11b beyond this I cannot find any idea as to what is causing it. Any assistance is appreciated and I am more than happy to provide anymore necessary info.

A:computer int disconnects from router on both wireless and with ethernet

Welcome to TSG:
If you are experiencing disconnects on both wired and wireless,I might assume that the problem does not lie with the wireless adapter alone.
Couple of things I might do.
Run your updated antivirus/antispyware suite to flush out any potential threats.
When you lose connectivity,take a look at task manager.Any particular task/process using a high % of cpu.? Idle task should be running above 90%.
Boot up in safe mode with networking.
Same problem?.
Just to be safe,I might download any more current firmware for your router.I understand that your other pc does not have an issue,but newer firmware if available can't hurt.
Any error msgs when connectivity is lost ?
How do you recover ?

Hey guys,

I am desperate for your help. In my 15 years of using the Internet, I never had to consult a forum directly, I always found my answer googling the problem. Not this time though.

Even though there are thousands of problems and answers regarding random disconnects from wireless networks, none of them helped me out, here is why:

Due to my job I am on the go all the time and have therefore in the past without any issues quickly connected to something like 15 wireless networks. Everything always worked as one would expect.
Now I am at a new place and I keep getting disconnected from the wireless network. This happens after 2 mins, 15 mins, even 3h after connecting. Usually I dont have to use the Troubleshooting, wireless will just reconnect by itself within a matter of seconds. However, constant disconnects annoy me and I need to get rid of this.
Since I never had this issue for 2 yrs with the exact same hardware and software configuration, I am thinking the problem must be on the router's side. Since I dont consider myself a newb in this regard, I feel save to say that all router configurations look okay, I didnt see anything odd that could cause this.
I am hesitant to change settings on my machine that I found when googling, because I was always able to connect without any problems to any wireless network. It seems just this one at my new place causes issues.

Can anyone help?

A:Router Causes Random Wireless Network Disconnects

Hi murphy347,

Welcome to SevenForums.

The only thing that comes to my mind is that your present location is much more susceptible to Radio Frequency Interference.

Did you try changing the channel in the Wireless Settings of your router? ( There are 13 ) Atleast one should prove to be better.

In October 2009 received Netgear wireless router as part of Sky broadband package. PC is 2004 Packard Bell Desktop, spec P4, 512MB ram, Geforce 2.
Using a Belkin USB G-Mimo Wireless adaptor, 3003, and Belkins wireless utility software, pc does connect to net fine. During a download of say more than 5MB, it will slow from 200kb/s down to 50kb/s then disconnect from net. If I do nothing, but wait, it will re-connect again in about one minute. I have freshly installed the windows xp home onto a formatted C: drive, all updates are done, no other unusual hardware is used. Windows is activated, there are no other problems.
Anyone had this happen to them, or might know what might be wrong ?

A:Belkin wireless adapter and Sky router slows and disconnects


In my humble opinion some of the USB sticks are flaky as hell,

can you try another way of connecting it wirelessly, such as a borrowed PCI card.

or can you plug the PC in with a cable and see if it still does it.?

OK I have a local isp providing wireless internet service, and seeing as that the only other option I have is 56k dialup, I'm stuck with it. I have hardwired my PC to my router and it works great with surfing the web and whatnot, but my problems occur when I'm gaming.

-I will get lag spikes (expected) playing online games
-Frequently, yet randomly, I will be disconnected from the game completely, and the case seems to be a momentary lapse of connectivity.
-During these periods, web pages won't load and I can't interact in the game, basically a big lag spike. The game will boot me back to the menu, and shortly after (seconds after being booted usually, rarely minutes), I can log back in again.
Once again, I'm using a wireless router to connect to my wireless internet service, and these random lag spikes kick me off of games or temporarily stop downloads. When something requires a streaming connection, it's a huge hindrance to me.

Sorry if I'm not very computer literate, but I am very new to this connection and tech talk in general, so feel free to hold my hand if you have any advice.

I have been experiencing intermittent disconnects from the internet which as far as I can tell started when I installed an online game (Guild Wars 2). I have done quite a few things to try and get this resolved myself but its proving to be quite a hardy problem so I thought id post it here. First off a few details:

ISP: Sky Broadband Unlimited
Router Brand: Sagemcom
Router Model: [email protected]
Operating System: All networked computers are on Windows 7
Network Effected: Both Wired and Wireless Simultaneously
Router Status: Internet light remains solid green and I am able to access my router while disconnected.
Frequency of Disconnects: 1-2 times an evening
The internet gets disconnected for all computers connected to the network however the router internet light remains green. The problem occurs more in peak internet usage times. Before this issue I have previously never had this problem and no other hardware/software changes were made. I also get disconnected when no programs are being run on my machine and when the wireless has been disabled.

I am currently plugged into the test phone socket, have swapped out the micro filter 4 times, replaced the modem with a brand new one, allocated static IP's to all devices in the network, turned off IPV6, changed settings on my network card and then back again and scanned my computer for viruses and malware using AVG, Windows Defender and Advanced System Care.

I have phoned my ISP who confirm that my internet connec... Read more

Hi guys. My wireless connection woes are never far away .

OK, so I have a wireless connection that has been working fine for almost a year.

Yesterday, I restart my computer, and the connection is connecting...disconnecting...connecting...disconnecting...as so on!

This is only when I am actually browsing the Internet. It never disconnects when the connection is idle.

I have tried changing channels, and I don't think it can be interference, because no matter how close to the WAP I am, the connection keeps connecting and disconnecting.

Also, I tried connecting my WAP directly to my laptop and even the LAN connection kept disconnecting and reconnecting in the same manner! I even tried connecting the WAP to another PC and still, the same dis-reconnecting difficulty.

What to do? Is the WAP faulty? I notice on the WAP the RX/TX light is on and the Link light is on, then (when it disconnects) one light goes off, the other stays on, then the other goes on and the first one goes off, and this goes on and on and then they both stay on. After 10 seconds the pattern repeats itself...

What on earth is going on?

By the way, my WAP is connected to a router which is connected to my cable modem. The wired connection to the router works perfectly, but when the WAP is involved this happens (dis-reconnecting) as I said, even when PC/laptop is hard wired into the WAP.



It was working fine for a year, and then this?

I appreciate any help in advance (as usual ).... Read more

Hi there, I have an HP laptop and my neighbor recently got a wireless router, allowing me to access his network while on my laptop. I have talked to my neightbor about this and he seems to have no problem with me using his connection. This morning though, my laptop was suddenly unable to open any web pages. It appears I am still connected to the internet and able to use certain programs (my daughters MySpace messenger), but Firefox and IE are unable to load web pages. Whenever I type anything into the address bar to pull up a page it says 'looking for launchmodem' or something along those lines.

Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, apologies if it is not.

Am using XP Professional + SP2 & SP3.
When I connect my camera via a USB port nothing happens other than it makes the usual connecting sound. The camers does not appear in My Computer but it is showing in the device managers USB section. When I put the SD card into a card reader I got a message saying the card needs to be formatted and asking if I want to do that. I then formatted a new card in the camera and took some pics and the PC still wanted to format it, I also tried a new card without camera formatting - same result.
This is a very recent happening and I cannot recall doing anything that might cause it.

Any suggestions?

Mine is Dell Inspiron 3537, Os: Windows 7 Ultimate x64. My laptop wifi works fine for some period of time, but suddenly the current wireless connection gets disconnected and no wireless networks appear in the list. The network connection icon in taskbar changes to no network connection (small monitor with yellow exclamation icon). The wireless adapter is still enabled only.
Well i found a way to bring back the connection and to show the available wireless networks by disabling and enabling the dell wireless adapter under "change adapter settings" in Network and sharing center. But this problem keeps repeating at unpredictable intervals and i have to disable and enable the wireless adapter everytime!. Please help me with a solution.
I have already tried the following,
1. Re-installing,updating wireless network drivers.
2. Re-installing entire OS with full format of all hard drives.
3. Disabled (unchecked) "allow computer to turn off this device to save power" option under power management tab of dell wireless adapter properties.
4. Changed the power saving options for wireless adapter to "maximise perfomance" for both on battery and plugged in modes.
Having tried all these still no luck, the problem persists. I borrowed a digisol wireless USB adapter from my friend. this works fine all the time with no issues.
I have no idea why mine is not working properly. please do help.

So for a while, I have been having trouble loading any pics, flash videos or java content. I'm not sure why, it just suddenly happened. I have tried to ask for help before but nobody comes to help me

I've decided to include some pictures this time. There are four websites, youtube, google, TSF and my homepage (gamefaqs.com). As you can see, none of them load properly, and I'm resorting to using other browsers (currently on Safari if you can believe it).

I could really use some help for once, and this is the only site I come to for help, ever since my first virus on this computer to now.

Hi darksteel88,

First, check to see if you have JavaScript and Java enabled in Firefox:
1. Click Tools > Options and then choose Content.
2. Make sure that Enable JavaScript and Enable Java are checked. If not, check them and click OK to close the Options window.
3. If you made any changes restart Firefox and see if there is any change in those sites.

If that doesn't help, let us know.

I need some help stopping the disconnecting. Its very anoying.

As the title states, my PC is disconnecting from the BT Home Wireless Hub.
It doesn't do this all the time and from what I can gather it only disconnects when downloading/uploading some amounts of data. Specifically Playing MMO's (EVE-Online, Tibia, Star Sonata, WoW) and Downloads.

Network Adapter Zoom Wireless-G USB adapter (

I have the latest drivers for this device and the hub is working fine.
The usb adapter is on a 3M Belkin USB Extension cable.
The Hub is on the other side of the house and on the second floor.

The understanding I have is that it disconnects due to low signal strength, but I have a strength of 30-40% most of the time, lowest being 10%. Link Quality always sits between 40%-100%.

Example: When I load EVE-Online Client, the client gets the status of the server cluster (online + number of players or offline, etc) This is when it starts to disconnect.

The connection just drops no matter what the link quality or signal strength. This happens constantly every 2 minutes.
Tedious solution for the random disconnection: when the ZoneAlarm Icon (my firewall) stops showing the data traffic of the connection, click Apply on the Zoom Wireless-G application. It looks like this refreshes the connection.

I replaced a very old router recently with a brand new Linksys BEFSR41 version 4.3 with the latest firmware, version 2.00.4 Build 7. At first it was fine, but the modem got disconnected once and since then I've been getting random disconnects from Ventrilo and on online game (WoW). I would think that it's a WoW issue, except that the disconnects happen from Ventrilo as well. My fiance and I play from the same router.

- We play next to eachother and only one of us disconnects at a time.
- Disconnects are random, can stay in WoW but Ventrilo disconnects and vice versa.
- Seems to occur at any time, but might be more frequent in the evening.

I've tried power cycling or whatever (disconnected modem, router, and the computers from power and then later plugged them back in). I've tried resetting the router to factory defaults and checked for firmware updates, but it already has the latest on the Linksys site.

I'm know how to log into the router, but I don't really know what to change to try and fix this issue. Please help!

A:Router Causing Disconnects?

Read other 16 answers

Hello all,

I have a Linksys EA6900 V1.1 Router. This router is probably 18 - 24 months old. I can't quite remember when I bought it, maybe it is even as old as 3 years, but I don't think so. The router will often drop connection and automatically begin to reconnect. This is intermittent, and sometimes the connection works for hours or days, and sometimes it will fail every 5 or 10 minutes for awhile.

This is a fairly new issue, at least with this frequency. We moved into a new home in June, and I started to get a very occasional drop, but it wasn't super frequent until the last couple of months probably.

This happens on wired and wireless connections both. (My desktop is hardwired) I have attached screenshots of the settings in my Linksys Smart Wi-Fi area. Guest Access, Parental Controls, and Media Prioritization are all turned off.

Thanks for any thoughts.

I bought this OfficeConnect Wireless SuperG Cable/DSL Router from 3Com. This piece was recommended by this swedish online store. Always bought stuff from them and nothing has been this bad. ;I

Anyway, if I put the network under some stress. Like downloading/uploading files or playing an online game, it disconnects me in 5-10 minutes.

So I have tried different settings with no luck at all. Another strange thing is that when I had the router at default settings and like 7-8 meters away, I could only get 11 Mbps. So I moved it only 1 meter closer and got 22 Mbps or something. I changed from "Mixed" to "Dynamic SuperG" and got almost 54 Mbps but very fluctuating. I moved the router only 4 meters from me and I got a contanst 54 Mbps. The router says it can work up to 122 meters indoor. ;I

There are no firmware upgrades either yet. There's so many settings that I don't have a clue about either. So I hope any of you people have the skill which I don't posess.

I bet there's something I have forgotten to tell you, so please just ask, I will check regulary.

Hey guys, I'm hoping you can help me out with a problem I've been having:

I recently set up a wireless router in order to share my internet connection with a friend of mine. Things work fine most of the time, but these days whenever I use the internet for a while I get disconnected, and I can't access the internet again until I restart my computer completely.

I used to think that it may be because we were both using the internet at the same time that it would disconnect me, but sometimes I am just surfing web pages and it will disconnect me.

I look at the lights on the router and see that it's in heavy use. The internet light and the LAN light (connecting the router to my computer) are flashing intensely. Yet, when I switch off my computer the lights don't flash which means my friend is not using the internet. It is as if my computer keep sending information to the router until it can't handle anymore and disconnects. I really don't know what's going on.

If you could give me any ideas, I'd appreciate it immensely, and if you need any extra information, I'll be happy to post what you need.

Just for reference, the router I'm using is a NETGEAR wiresless router MR814.

A:router disconnects from internet

I recently bought a Netgear Wireless N 150 router (although I haven't set it up yet). One reason I chose it is that I was told it can be used as a wired network between our two desktop computers, and as a wireless access point for the laptop. But frankly, I don't always trust what the sales people tell me.

I've read on many sites that wired computers have some advantages over wireless, including security and speed, so I prefer a wired LAN for the main computers (they are within feet of each other and will stay that way). But I would like the convenience of going online via the wireless connection with my laptop in the other room.

I've never done this before (I always just had a wired connection between the 2 desktops and didn't bother going online with the laptop) and I need to know if this setup will cause any problems I should know about.

Please don't suggest I go wireless for the entire LAN -- I'm just too set in my ways to make that leap right now. If my planned setup won't work, I'll stick with my current one and forget the laptop.

You should use configurations that will help you troubleshoot to determine where/why the disconnects (unless, of course, you already know).

If you have no clue, observe the LEDs on the Westell modem/router and on the Belkin router to see what they tell you. Try a device connected directly to the Westell to see if that also frequently loses internet access.

Do the disconnects occur for all devices at the same time? Or is the problem with just one device? When internet access is lost is connection with the router maintained?

If you want a guess, at least part of the problem is likely the Belkin. Six years of service from that particular model is outstanding and you should not feel bad about replacing it,.

hello Im new to this forum and I have been having problems with my new router. I decided to purchase a new one after having our old smc one since we first got cable internet. There were no problems with the old one except holding back the actual cable speed.

The new router is a Dlink EBR-2310 model and isp is Comcast cable. The connection is hooked up to 2 computers and occasionally a gaming console. Xbox live runs great but the two computers disconnect and reconnect randomly anywhere from 5-10/12 times a day. It is off for about anywhere from 1-3/4min and then returns without me having to do anything

This is a WIRED connection. The firmware on the router is up to date. I tried setting up static ips and the same thing happens(even worse) I've tried replacing the router and the same problem still occurs. any help would be appreciated since it is an annoyance.

Other weird problems with new router: downloads from sites like rapidshare are unusually slow (10-20 k/bs) downloading torrent files often triggers a disconnect. thanks for any help

My modem disconnects then reconnects sometimes 3 times a day or more. I am using aztech. I changed my router to a linksys, during the first 2 months it was okay, now the same problem arise again with my aztech.

A:My modem/router disconnects then reconnects

If your modem is disconnecting it's likely a problem with your ISP, the cable or phone lines between your ISP and the modem, the modem or its power supply, or a faulty or missing filter if DSL.

If you want to be more specific about your type of internet service, brand and model of modem and router, specific problem, etc., we may be able to offer more help or suggestions.

I have a Linksys router that disconnects every 45min to 1hr & 15 min. Very annoying. Doesn't matter whether I'm using the computer or not. So I have to disconnect pwr. to the modem and router - wait a min. then connect pwr to modem and router and wait a min. and I'm back on line... what's going on...?? Without the router it never disconnects.
I have cable from Comcast an eMachine using XP home.

A:Linksys router disconnects about every hour.

You may be able to solve the problem by setting the router back to the default configuration. Somebody may have changed the settings on it which cause it do act in that way. Somewhere in the router's configuration, they should be an option to restore factory settings or something similar. Try doing this. If you don't know how, contact the retailer or consult the user manual.
If you do this and the problem persists, the problem may be your service provider (ISP). They could have problems due to a lack of servers or too many users. Try contacting them to resolve the issue.

I have a ZyXEL P-335U wireless router, which also has four normal LAN ports.
Currently I only use the normal LAN ports, and I have no wlan connections active.
The router is connected to the internet through an ethernet connection. (10/10Mbit)

Everything works great when I connect through the router with only one computer, but
if I plug in my 2nd computer, both connections will die after 10-60 minutes. All the lights
on the router keep blinking like usual, even after the connections die. It seems like some
outgoing traffic will still be possible after the connection crashes, but no incoming data.

I returned the router to have it fixed, but they found no problems and sent it back to me.

Hopefully someone here will have an idea of what could be the problem. Looking forward
to reading any ideas/comments/tips/help/whatever.

Problem: The internet connects fine, but every couple of minutes it will disconnect for a couple of seconds. It's not a big deal when browsing, but it's disastrous when downloading big files or playing online games.

What I've tried so far:
-Resetting the modem. No change.
-Reconnecting the modem/router completely. No change.
-Replacing the main splitter. Slight change, but problem came back eventually.
--Original problem came with the tech's 2 way 5-1002 mhz spliiter.
--I tried replacing it with a 3 way 5-1000 one. The modem on 7db and cable on 7db. It worked fine for a couple of days.
--Problem comes back today. Moving the modem to any of the 3 outputs doesn't fix anything. Moving it to 3.5db actually causes a short timeout every minute when I try to ping yahoo (as a test).
--I've also tried a 2 way 5-900 mhz splitter. It was the worse one of all.

Other info:
The internet went down to the entire block at the start of the year. No one knew this of back then so we made a call to comcast, and they scheduled for a tech. A couple days later, we decide to get a new modem from the comcast center just to make sure it wasn't our modem. Some problems with activation prevents us from knowing if it was. We get back online somehow the next day, which is also the same time the tech came. He decides our numbers are weird and adds in a splitter for the internet and tv (which leads into another splitter for each room), and an amplifier for the tv. In the ... Read more

A:Frequent disconnects on cable/router

Read other 15 answers

Hey, I have a Zyxel 5D124A0 and it runs very well, most of the time..

I'm currently setup with a modem > router > wifi/cable(makes no matter, same issue).
If I use the cable straight from the modem into my PC, there are absolutely no issues. Working perfectly.

Alright, so to my issue. If I play any games on my PC/PS3, I will suddenly lose my connection for a second or two. Not long enough for me to disconnect from the game. But rather, what should have occured during that time, will just fly by in a split second. This happens, maybe, 2-4 times per hour. I haven't changed much more than the password in the router since i bought it about 3 months ago.

Should add that I have a 100/100 fiber connection from Telia, and I drop like 2-3mbit/s from using the router, compared to going straight from the modem.

My laptop is a MSI GT683DXR, bought 10 months ago.

My modem is a XG6745

I haven't had the option of trying my laptop elsewhere, but several friends has had the same issue as me from my router when we've had lans.

Any suggestions?

Hello, I have a G+ MIMO router. The router works fine but it keeps on disconnecting when I'm trying to download something, or watch videos online, or connect my PS3 to it. Playing games on PSN is impossible and I play a lot! I used to have a linksys router and it worked fine with my PS3. But I recently moved in with my sister but she's got G+ MIMO router and I've had nothing but problems with it. The PS3 connects to the internet wirelessly but keeps on disconnected after a while. And I can't connect it directly because the router is upstairs and PS3 is downstairs. I can't update PSN or download game updates! Or download big files unless I connect it directly with the modem.

I'm from England, I've got Virgin media broadband cable connection. I'm using dynamic connection type, wireless. Haven't used an encryptions yet. And I'm using XP home SP2.

Hi all
I have a problem with my router

Previously when i first got the router both client computers that was online both had windows 98, I connected the router, installed the router wizard on the cd and boom both computers where working fine online.

I then recently change my operating system to windws 2000 NT technology, the other client has remained with windows 98, I have reset my router settings and tried to re-install the router settings via the cd. Both computers work with the internet for about a couple of minutes then all of a sudden our IE browsers stop working and we cannot access the internet anymore unless we restart our computers and re-power the modem and router. things like yahoo messenger seem to carry on working on the machines.

We use a cable connection for our internet, our router is just a standard broudband router made by Peak ( I believe)

Can anyone point me in the right direction to fix our problem

Thank you.

Not sure whether this is gaming or connection problems, so feel free to move if it's in the wrong place.

Several times over the last couple of weeks both during the day and in the evening, I have been disconnected from the world of warcraft and ventrilo server. There are no latency issues in game, it just suddenly disconnects me requiring me to login again. The problems started when I switched to NTL and the 1mb connection (which should be more than enough) and had to use a router rather than connecting both PCs to the BT cable modem.

My partner has the same problems but the disconnects aren't simultaneous, they aren't timed and seem random (both from ventrilo and the server). Other programs such as teamspeak and msn messanger are unaffected.

Use the built in XP firewall, and a sitecom DC-202v5 router. I tried setting up port forwarding/static IPs and that didn't help. Playing without the router stopped the disconnects though. The cables were used when we had a BT modem and they were fine then. My network card is a TE100-PCBUSR 32-Bit Cardbus PC Card and that has also been fine before so the problem isn't there. Both PCs have Ethernet connections to the router. So today I tried a new router (without port forwarding), figuring that was the problem and the disconnects were worse

Both running windows XP.

I have Comcast Digital Voice and Internet and am using an Arris TM502G cable modem with telephony. I am trying to connect it to my wireless router: Belkin f5d7230-4 version 6000.

I have had the router for several years, and it worked perfectly and consistently. Several months ago, I started using my Desktop computer without the router, connected directly to what I had at the time, a motorola standalone cable modem. Then I ordered Comcast Digital voice, and they replaced my motorola modem with the arris telephony modem. After a few weeks of using the arris directly connected to my desktop, I tried to set up the Belkin.

At first, the Belkin went for 1 or 2 days without needing a reset, but now it just loses the connection after a few minutes. However, I can use the Belkin router without it being connected to the modem, and all of my computers can see each other. I was even doing a lot of VNC over the Belkin, and it never once needed to be reset.

I have updated my router to the very latest firmware, version 8.01.21, and also reset to the default settings the router. Yet the problems persist. Is the WAN manager in the router broken, or is Comcast messing with me. I have cloned the WAN MAC address of the ethernet card in my desktop to the router.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You have already done all the standard things to try to get it working again. You could try the reset to factory default settings one more time, but it's time to be shopping for your next router.
