Wireless connection drops every 24 hrs

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?SG9seWtub3dl?=, Jan 4, 2006.

  1. Hi Guys
    Wonder if any of you can help, a bit baffled by this one.
    Every 24 hours I cannot access the internet via my wireless network, I have
    to re-run the XP Network setup wizard daily, delete the network bridge that
    XP Puts in, and then everything is okay again, and I can surf without any
    issues. Come the next morning, I have to repeat this all over again.

    Setup is a Netgear DG34, with a wireless access poin installed, and the card
    on the laptop is a Linksys USB adaptor. I've updated the firmware on both
    these devices, but stii am encountering the same problem on a daily basis.

    Any advice gratefully received

    Many thanks

    DHCP or static IP?

    Hi Eugene.

    The router is set to accept DHCP

    Have you tried to enter static IP into the Alternative Configuration
    tab of TCP/IP properties?

  6. I am absolutely no expert. I recall when I set up my router, there was one
    section that set the client lease time length --- 0 meaning one day. It
    could be you need to change the lease time length to 9999 (maximum on
    Lynksys) --- I believe leaving it at 0, then when the lease time ends (each
    day) then you are logged out and cannot access the internet.

    Please let me know if this helped or not :)

  7. I would like to understand what you mean when you say you "delete the
    network bridge." I am also curious what else you have tried to restore
    connectivity that did not work (reboot, unplug network card, etc).

  8. Hi Nancy

    Had checked that one too, and was aware of that issue, just wish it had been
    as simple as that !!

    On a happer note I seem to have corrected the fault. I uninstalled all of
    the protocols, and then re-installed them one by one .................and hey
    presto, it worked. I guess I must have had a corupted protocol somewhere in
    the set up.

    Once again my thanks to all that helped me with this :)
