Bugs. The bug could be code in the router which you check on Belkin's web site for updated "firmware."
Another issue is that not all features work in all routers. In our forum sticky we offer a suggested setup. Did you try that?
Internet access is via Time Warner Roadrunner using a Motorola cable modem. Have a Belkin wireless router set up to broadcast WiFi. My wife and I access from Toshiba laptops with internal WiFi cards. Usually all is well with pretty good speed.
Then every once and awhile (once every two weeks or so, sometimes weekly) the wireless connection remains okay, but we get "local access" only over the wireless network. We can see each other's machine, but can't get on the net.
This is solved by rebooting the modem and router and we're back surfing the web. I have to reboot both devices to regain Internet access. Neither laptop needs to be rebooted however. They just reconnect automatically to the wireless router.
What causes the internet connection to drop out like this? Although this is a minor annoyance, is there anyway to prevent this?
