WRT160NL router removes the connections on every 30-60 seconds

I've had this router for a few months and under the firmware.17. My pda when it is attached to this router in wifi abandons the connection every 30 seconds or so and sometimes it will not reconnect without having to restart the pda. I have this problem on this router. It did on my old router nor does when roaming. So I started looking and I think that it does on other devices connected in wifi as well. I found a few others who have the same problem, while reading the reviews on Amazon so I'm sure it's the router. any ideas? Linksys must also update the firmware and include a soft reset feature. This router just like most other crashes sometimes and I reset it if I can get to it remotely, which is usually the case. It's the first router I've owned that did not have this feature. so if someone is home I have to ask them to draw power and then plug it in again. BIG HASSLE! Come on Cisco, look at this product and clean as it is one of your real routers!

I suggest you to readjust the settings of the router wireless...

Connect to the Setup page of the linksys by typing in the address bar type the password "admin" in the lower case. Do not type anything in the username.

Click on the wireless tab... Change the width of the channel at 20 MHz Standard and Standard 11 - 2, 462 GHz channels and click on save settings... Click the settings advanced wireless... Change the interval of tag to 75 > change the Fragmentation threshold to 2304, change the RTS threshold to 2304 > click 'save settings '...

Now, power cycle the entire network and then check...

  • remove the connection from the user at the start of LV2012

    I have re-installed LabVIEW 2012 after a computer melt but have managed to have it ask me whenever I run the application to select a user from a drop in a dialog box.

    Is anyone know how I can remove it and have it start just like he used to.

    Thank you very much


    Thanks Hooovahh,

    This was really helpful

    Apparently, there are 2 types of connections.

    Tools Options Security settings relates to the following

    But this isn't the dialog box with the fact that I have problems. It was actually the one below:

    Rename the LabVIEW.ini and restart will actually work. I then tried to compare the 2 files to find which option he was to go on, but after the deletion of individual and combinations of things that sounded possible such as recentUsername = I could not yet get rid of the dialog box.

    My solution was your 2nd suggestion to remove LabVIEW.ini and let LabVIEW recreate then manually handed in my preferences.

    Everything works now.

    Thank you.

    My wife's iPhone had previously purchased with the help of a now deleted Apple ID applications. I deleted all original applications under the id now deleted and downloaded under its new Apple ID.

  • E3000 removes all connections every 2-6 hours

    Every few hours the router removes all connections, wireless and wireline, and then they return to the minute.

I tried a lot of things, but I really have no idea what could cause a problem like that. Any ideas would be very useful because I'm quite confused.

  • Wireless acting funny after having removed the PC on the home network - router WRT54G

    Lately I had a strange problem with my wireless. Internet works fine on my laptop and computer laptop of my fiance, but I have the following questions:

    1 Vonage phone works not properly. When the phone rings, it rings a very long cycle, and then when we pick up, the line is dead.

    2 X - Box Live connection interrupts the connection once every 2 or 3 minutes about, constantly.

    3. I can't connect to my linksys config site, and when I ping, I get 100% packet loss.

    Here is my situation and how it has changed recently Wireless:

    Set - original up: Desktop connected to the linksys router, laptop of fiance the wireless, no problem at this stage. The modem is Motorola if it matters. Office calculated was used initially to set up the wireless network.

    Computer for office died and I bought my current laptop (which I use to write this post). I connected to the wireless network without existing, although during the first week, there was some notable slowly down on me and my fiance wireless from time to time. I played around with some parameters in the linksys config page and reset the router and things are back to normal.

    However, I recently bought an xbox wireless adapter and was very disappointed by the loss of connection. When I test the connection it says I am connected but my "NAT" is moderate. My config is set so that uPNP is enabled, but I still have this problem. At the same time, we noticed that our Vonage has been screwed up and had the above mentioned problem.

    Today, I tried to connect to the site to access my linksys config page, but I can't access it and as I said, when I ping the IP, I got 100% packet loss.

  • How can I remove a connection from network Local to my computer?

    I have a connection to local network on my computer (XP Service Pack 3 operating system).  I had this connection turned off for awhile and I also removed the ICON on the desktop for this connection.  For many months, I noticed in the Log Viewer/system event I had a DCOM error every morning when I started my computer.  Sometimes, the computer may pause for a few seconds, the screen would go black, and the system should restart automatically--normally.  I would check the log Event Viewer/system and the DCOM error was there.  At other times, the system should boot normally until he got to the window where I select user or administrator - at this time there, the mouse would be frozen in its tracks.  A restart (by cutting the power supply to the computer) would all walk normally again.  Another check of the event log and the DCOM error occurred once more here.  I have to admit that the problems I identified here are rare visitors to my computer (no more than once or twice a week), but they are of course annoying.  So, I believe that this connection to the unused LAN is at the root of my problem.  Then I decided to activate the LAN connection, restart my computer and see if the DCOM error occurred when starting - no error has been found.  Has it done for me, I decided that the unused LAN connection must go.  I, however, have not found the magical instructions for how to remove the connection to the local network.  I read an article that told me the Device Manager where it should be delete this connection.  So I made a visit to the Device Manager and found the connection LAN listed there - I'm not sure this is the right thing to do.  I also made a visit to the network connections and clicked on the unwanted local network connection - I found that delete is dimmed.  I just seem to be lost as to how to make this connection to the local network to go.  Can someone give me help in this task?  Any help sent my way would be greatly appreciated.

    It is a sequel to my last post.  I decided, after that no response was forthcoming to this message, follow the instructions that I have included in this post more soon to try to remove the connection to the local network unwanted from my computer.  FYI, this set of instructions worked perfectly and I have over this connection to the LAN on my system.  I hope that this information will be useful to others you want to remove a local network of their Windows XP Pro SP3 system connection.

  • WRT160Nv2 guard give up the connection

    I've been running this router for about 6 months now, and now the problem becomes unbearable. I installed LELA on all my computer last night finally and I see when my connections drop it now. I can surf, all right, and I start to get page not found or not connected to the internet error.  I'm currently running 1 Wired, wireless 3, XBOX360 1.  The XBox NEVER drops connection, NEVER drop the CPU compared to Yahoo Instant Messenger and surfing capabilities let computers and page timeouts. Before installing LELA I had to unplug and reconnect the router every time that he did. Now the duty rate is about 4 to 6 times an hour. Then someone please help me, I'm totally lost. I went through the technical support of comcast already and they say that, because I can get on the game and messenger service that it is most likely router problems.

    There are several work around this problem, and I hope others after their solutions. I had exactly the same problem with my router and here's how I solved it;

    First of all, I downloaded a new version of the firmware, but it doesn't stall now. Secondly, I did a reset / / 30/30 30 router, here is the complete procedure

    1. connect the computer via a cable to the router cat - make sure that you can 'see' the router via a browser @

    2. with the power to the router "on", press the button of reset for 30 seconds - do not stop pressing to go to step 3

    3. While pressing the reset button, unplug the power supply of routers, wait 30 seconds - you don't need to go to step 4

    4. While pressing the reset button, plug in the router to the power source, wait 30 seconds and release the reset button and wait for the router to return online

    5. access to the router through the web interface @ - admin is the password (you probably know )

    6. install the new firmware (administration tab > firmware update)-if successful, you will see the reviews, if not repeat steps above.

    7. Repeat steps 1-5

    8 access to the new router via web interface to reconfigure your settings for your network and your ISP and leave all the others in mode by default - except one, on the configuration tab, change the Keep Alive: reminder from 30 seconds to 20 seconds time.

    Before you implement this, my router dropped the connection for laptops wireless several times a day, because I did this procedure, not only once!

  • Keeps remote desktop abandon the connection


    I have just upgraded to Windows 7 Windows 8. The main question that I have now with Windows 8, it is the remote desktop client is somehow broken for me. Whenever I use it, it blocks (i.e. I can't interact with the remote computer) and then I get the box of Pseudo-dialogue indicating reconnection it will reconnect and I return the remote access. He does it all the time (about every few minutes). Note that when I can't interact with the computer to remove it, I can still ping it very well. Clearly, it is not a connection problem.
    It seems to be a problem with Microsoft Remote Desktop Client because I'm so tired, I tried 2 alternatives: terminals and mRemoteNG. Their use, never removes the connection.
    However, I would like to use the Microsoft client as it is more convenient to use. I tried to copy some binary files from Windows XP or Windows 7, but they do not work properly when I try to run them, I guess it's more than a simple 'mstsc.exe' to copy (I copied c:\windows\system32\mstscax.dll thus, but it kept loading of Windows 8).
    Anyone with a similar problem?
    Thank you

    A fix came out 11/13 which appears to solve the problem for me. The number is 2897602.

  • How can I fix Vista freezing occurs regularly during the connection of 5 min post (even in safe mode)?

    http://I'm under Vista Home Premium (Service Pack Friday updated last 01:00) on a Sony Vaio VGN-AR830e and there are only two users. I am quite experienced with error correction, but this one left me speechless: Mark my system of completely right on five minutes after the connection freezes every time I start up, even in Safe Mode. System entirely unresponsive and must be restarted by pressing the power button - no other keys will work. This question has been occurring every time I login since 15:00 yesterday. I figured I could have picked up Malware, but I cannot run any programs I normally use to diagnose in the five minute window - they start and freeze. I can, however, run in Mode safe mode with command prompt without the freeze, but I am limited in my knowledge of CMD coding, so I need instructions. I was able to run sfc/scannow... Report = Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to solve some of them. Details ate included in the CBS.log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log newspaper. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log I'm on this forum via iPhone, so forgive me for not being able to write more in detail. Thank you, Eric

    Hello Eric,

    If the machine is running in safe with command prompt Mode, but no Mode without fail, my first thought would be that we conduct issues shell or a problem with Solution Explorer.

    On the other hand, if we had these problems, I expect not boot in any mode for 5 minutes.

    That being said, I'm going to recommend something that I hardly ever recommend.  Safe mode with command prompt, run a SFC/scannow.

    More information can be found in the following article:


    If that fails, we will run some hardware diagnostics on the machine.  These will be provided by your manufacturer.

    Best regards
