Keep Losing connection to router

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?U0FsZGVycw==?=, Nov 10, 2007.

  1. Maybe someone can help this laymen out. My once, always reliable connection
    from my Dell Inspiron 700m to my Linksys router is now giving me a problem.
    The connection between the laptop & router becomes disconnected for no
    apparent reason. When I click on “available wireless networks†my router is
    there on the top with an excellent signal. When I click reconnect it does
    not. Then I click “repair†and the message says, Windows could not finish
    repairing the problem, for assistance contact the person who manages your
    networkâ€. I changed out the router and still have this problem. Could it be
    the wireless adapter is bad on my laptop?
    Can anybody help me with this problem?

    Dead in the water.

    for starters, post info on what brand wireless card, what version
    drive and which windows operating system.

    did anything change in your environment? cordless phone? did a
    neighbor install a wireless router? did a driver get upgraded? did
    you get a virus or malware on your computer?

    posting the text output of

    ipconfig /all

    will also help

    the newest drivers are from 11/7, you should try these:

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...&OSFullName=Windows* XP Professional&lang=eng

    also, have you tried logging into the router and changing the
    wireless channel? what kind of wireless security are you using?

  6. I downloaded the drivers the other day, that didn't work.
    I'm using "WEP" security and I don't know how to change the channel on the
    router.
    Can you guide me on that one?

    Thanks again for your help in this matter.

    You can log into most Linksys routers using a web browser and typing
    in

    http://192.168.1.1

    what model Linksys router and hardware version do you have?

    what firmware is in the router?

    once you reply with the model and hardware version, I should be able
    to direct you to the user manual for your router.

  8. Barb,
    Wireless-G Broadband Router WRT54GL (Firmware Version: v4.30.11)
    I've been getting very familiar with my router and the configuration browser.
    I upgraded the firmware, reset the router and still no results. The security
    I'm using is "WEP" which has always been in place since I got it .
    Speaking of WEP, I noticed that everytime I enable it, in the
    router/browser I lose my connection on the laptop. When I go back in, and
    disable the WEP, my connection comes back and everything works fine. It's
    beyond me.
    Maybe something is not configured right on my Laptop?
    We're getting close.

    Your help is much appreciated in this matter.

    WEP is not safe to begin with. Can you please reconfigure for WPA2
    or at least WPA and see if this changes anything?

  10. Ok, but what will I need to know as far as configuration? I tried changing
    over to WPA the other day but the router/ browser asked me for info. I wasn't
    familiar with.
    I mean, I do, have the option for WPA2 & WPA, but there is some setup
    involved. Not just clicking on WPA, Right?
    Help

    just start by using a strong passphrase in the router - select WPA2
    and then enter it.

    then perhaps
    http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/security/expert/bowman_wirelesssecurity.mspx
    will help with what to do on the computer.
