    Hi guys,

    Im desperate for help. Firstly, I have a Belkin 802.11g Wireless Modem Router and we have 4 computers running XP connected to it, 3 of which are wireless. I am with Tiscali, on a 2mb speed.

    Heres the situation;

    I will be browsing the Xbox forums without a problem for a few hours, then the next minute, when i click a link, it will say the page cannot be displayed. So I reboot the router, and everything works fine, for a few hours, then the same happens again. This happens on all the computers at the same time.

    Does anyone know what could be the problem?

    I have tried disabling the router firewall, and also tried changing the MTU to 1400 from 1492.

    Thanks in advanced for any help!
    Marcus

    Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

    Make and model of the broadband modem.
    Make and model of the router.
    Connection type, wired or wireless.
    If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
    Make/model of your computer.
    Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP2, Vista, etc.



    Have you checked for upgraded firmware from Belkin for your router? Have you reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigured. Does the DSL modem remain connected with a steady data light when the connection fails?

    I can still connect to the internet, its just certain pages won't load, like the Xbox Forums for example. Occasionally, I will lose connection altogether but then instantly be re-connected.

    OK, that's a bit different. So, only specific sites fail? Will they ever come back if you DON'T reset the router? This really doesn't sound like a router issue to me. My previous suggestions of firmware and a factory reset still stand.

    No they wont come back until I restart the router.

    So, Resetting to factory defaults is first on the list to do, and then Firmware update.

    What other suggestions do you have?

    Try a new router. :)

    Have you ever connected directly to the modem with a wired connection for a day to see if the situation is localized to the router?

    This could still be an ISP issue, it's really had to say.

    Yeah, tough one ain't it. It seems to be a router problem to me though, because of when I restart it, it works fine again for a few hours. Hmmm
