hi im with virgin media and have always used a wireless router, we had a d-link one up until a few weeks back but it broke. we have now bought a belkin N wireless router and seem to be having trouble, every now and again it keeps showing connected to the router but no internet access, weve got a password on it so no one can be using our wireless, i know its not a problem with virgin as when i plug the ethernet cable straight into my laptop i get a connection to the internet, does anyone have any idea of what i can do to stop it losing the internet connection.

Had 3 belkin routers through time - took all 3 back.

Had the same problem the "N" one I had - kept on losing connection to the internet.

i never had a problem with the d-link one, think i will have to take this one back, its just annoying when it loses connection, i got it from pc world so i bet i have trouble returning it as im not sure where the reciept is but hopefully i can print off my bank statement to prove i got it from there.

Try going to the router home page (192.168.2.1) and changing the channel number. Belkin suggested I do this when I had the same problem and it worked for me.

I had the same problem, Belkin Routers are useless and the Help desk whilst reasonably helpful were unable to solve problem- (did not work with O2 - you would think they could have solved that!!). They eventually replaced with another but new one did not work either. JUST DONT BUY BELKIN ROUTERS!!!

Somewhere in the routers setup will be a setting for the WiFi channels. Usually it's preconfigured to "Automatic" but you can also force any channel from 1 to 11.

The channels overlap each other, so there's only three genuinely distinct channels: 1, 6 and 11. Channels 2-5 and 7-10 are only intended to be useful in other countries.

So pick a number (1, 6 or 11) and try it for a while. If you still get problems change it to one of the other two numbers.

turn WPS off
