Posted 15 March 2011 - 11:43 PM

Our ADSL2 internet connection is obtained through a DSL-G604T Generation II wireless router.

Several computers connect through the router independently. Often we have two wireless notebooks connected at the same time.

We are running:

1 ASUS emachines E525 with a wireless connection to the router, this runs Windows 7 Home

1 Dell Inspiron 6400 with a wireless connection to the router, this runs Vista Home

2 wired desktops running Windows XP Pro - they are irregularly used and are generally not often switched on when we get our internet drop outs.

I am regularly getting internet drop out from the emachine whether any of the other computers are switched on or not (so regularly at times that it a surprise it hasn't gone through the window).

Almost invariably first thing in the morning it is necessary to reboot the router (unplug and reconnect the power) to get an internet connection for the emachine. I will usually have a connection to the router, but not to the internet or, through it, to our wireless HP printer.

Once rebooted the emachine usually connects to the internet. Sometimes I need to reboot the computer too - often just rebooting the computer restores the internet connection without rebooting the router.

The Dell usually continues to work OK, as do the wired desktops if they are on. From time-to-time the Dell loses its connection too.

I've been told that I have the problem because I have a Vista machine and a Windows 7 machine connecting to the internet through the router and that there is an inherent Microsoft bug that is causing my problem. I'm a bit suspicious of that because for a long time (six months or more) we had no problems with wither notebook.

We occasionally get messages saying that we have two computers sharing the same IP address - clearly, our service provider is the same for each computer and right now when I do a "what is my IP address" check both the Dell and the emachine have the same IP address (14.2xx XXX.XXX).

I have just lost the internet connection on the emachine (about the 5th time today), but the Dell, right next to me, is still beavering away OK.

I think it is now approriate to say HELP please!!!

Are you sure thats the IP that you are getting?

You should be getting 192.168.0.0/16 various.

I have logged onto the router site and it tells me that my two notebooks and the HP Printer have different dynamic IP addresses. The MTU is set at 1400 and the MRU is 1492.

UPnP is enabled with the Pvc01 radio button highlighted.

The firewall is turned on - I'm not sure if this is the routers inbuilt firewall or my Avast Internet Security firewall that I have enabled. If both are on, is this a problem? (I've just lost the connection again! The Dell still marches on unflustered).

Cryptodan - Yes that is the IP address I have. Come to think of it, I installed a program Avast Internet Security, Comodo, Advanced System Optimiser and I seem to recall that one of them had Cloud capabilities and changed the IP address. The router indicates that my service providers IP address is 172.xx.xxx.xxx and my Route target is 172.xx.xxx.0;
the route mask is 255.255.255.0

Can you not hide your IP addresses?

Remove ASO, and if you are using your router as a firewall remove Comodo

What is the IP of your router?

The logs show nothing, and I asked if you have checked for updated drivers for your wireless card.

The router IP is 10.1.1.1

I have uninstalled ASO.

This computer (ASUS emachine) is running Avast Internet Security Firewall as part of the IS program (the Dell is using Comodo Firewall) should I disable the Avast/Comodo firewalls on this and the Dell and leave it to the router firewall to look after things?

DLink's website says the router runs independently of the OS and has no drivers. There is new Firmware available. I have checked the wireless card drivers and received the message that they are the latest available.

Your computers should have an IP from that range 10.1.1.0/24

Yes, they do have Dynamic IP addresses in that range; they are 10.1.1.2 through 10.1.1.6 (4 computers, 1 wireless printer)

Cryptodan

Thanks for your help by the way.
