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.

This is a problem with the wireless settings of your router, so the first thing that you can do to correct this is to change the channel on your router if after that still having the same problem the next step is to update the firmware of the router and that will resolve your problem..

Do i need a modem? if so which are compatible?


When you speak to Comcast you should see if they are providing you with a wireless modem/router that will be everything you need.

If so, you will not need the Belkin router as Comcast will supply you with the hardware you need. If they only give you a modem, your Belken wireless router should work fine with the Comcast modem.

Hope that helps!

Internet connection problems


Sorry but that seems to be a pretty convoluted explanation. Here is how it should go.
Vonage unit connected to phone line(s) and cable modem. Linksys connected to Vonage box. Computers connected to Linksys.
Ethernet has a length limitation of about 300 feet before you need another switch (hub) or a repeater. Does your wire length exceed this?

Belkin G wireless Router


Do you have an all-in-one router from Comcast? For example, do you have the cable (RF) line and your PC plugged into the Comcast router? If so, unplug your PC from the Comcast router and connect the Internet port of the Belkin to the ethernet port on the Comcast router. Then plug your PC into the LAN port on your Belkin.

[PC] ---> [Belkin] ---> [Comcast] ---> Internet

Once you have connected your boxes as displayed above, you will need to power everything off and bring up the boxes in the following order:

Comcast (wait 60 seconds)
Belkin (wait 60 seconds)
PC

If you cannot get out to the internet, momentarily press the reset button on the back of the Comcast box. Comcast routers are weird. A poweroff should reset the router but I have seen a few times where nothing works until the reset button is pressed (this is also recommended by Comcast).

I hope this helps.

The problem may be that your router needs a firmware update. I work with routers everyday and have found that even out of the box they do not have the lastest firmware. Ditto for linksys.

Belkin N1 Router connection drops when phone rings


You may have a phone line connected from the modem to a wall outlet. Count the number of cables coming out of your modem - you should have only three: the power cable (connects to the wall), Cat 5 (also connects to the wall), and ethernet (running from the modem to the router).
