Router connection problem
« on: November 12, 2018, 09:20:11 AM »
Every hour or so web pages stop opening and i'm being told to 'check my connection'

If I go to my internet connection, click 'status' and then click 'diagnose' it runs and i'm connected again. Sometimes this happens every 20 minutes or so.....

Can anyone help?

Have you trued disconnecting all power from your router for like a minute and then plugging it back in? If so you could try resetting to factory defaults through the routers homepage.

Possibly try resetting your computer's network setting and possibly re-installing drivers or updating them? This is quite strange. This has never happened to me before.

It's still the same, i have to reset the network adapter 2 -3 times an hour. It's infuriating.

Then, I'm not sure how to help you. I guess you just might need to purchase a new router.

    If the router has been connected to the internet and worked in the past, confirm the signal from your internet service provider (ISP) is not the problem.

    Turn off the wireless function and directly connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable.
    Reboot the computer and check for an internet connection.
    If there is still no internet connection reboot the router and any modems in use.
    You can also repeat this scenario with your computer directly connected to the modem instead of the router.
    If you are still not getting an internet connection, contact your internet service provider.
