Question about Belkin Basic Wireless Router
There are a few things thatcan cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router.1. Weak signal strength,check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move thewireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locatethe wireless router higher up.2. Have you secured yourwireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change thedefault password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID,and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC addressfiltering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s toconnect to your wireless router.3. You could be gettinginterference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders,washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers andcomputers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, betterstill connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted PowerSupply). 4. Check the channels ofthe wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcastchannel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currentlyused but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interferencewith your wireless router from other wireless routers and accesspoints in your area.

One of the biggest problems is interference from nearby routers. If your modem and router are both wireless and being that close together, likely you'll be getting crosstalk between the two devices. In that case, turn the radio off in the modem and use the router's radio exclusively. I had a problem in my house...a rather large house, and I actually thought I was doing a good thing by placing extenders (like a router) too close to each other. All had to run on the same channel in the configuration I used. Being so close to each other actually caused the connections to drop. Eliminated 2 of the 5 extenders and everything worked great. No longer 5 bars everywhere, but 5 bars that didn't work isn't as good as 3 bars that do. Now, if your existing modem doesn't have built-in wireless and your Belkin is set to auto-channel, then you may actually need an extenders. Several choices: Powerline extender, WiFi Extender, or just running a long network cable. I personally use some compatible Linksys routers with DD-WRT firmware installed. Unless you're a total geek, don't recommend that one. Wireless extenders work well and are easy to set up. Powerline extenders are less flexible than Wifi but are easy to set up, as well. A network cable is the most secure, but is the least flexible and is good for something like a Smart TV that will never be moved. At least on a regular basis. Hope all of that helps.

try to chk out the firmware of the router. in most of the cases firmware are the major problem for the disconnection of the connection if the device has been purchased a while ago. visit ur belkin website and look for the firmware for your router model no.
if the device is new then try to decrease the mtu size and temporarily disable the firewall of the router
thanx and regards
