I found myself in a problem that I cannot figure out at all. My router will automatically reset itself and turn off the internet when I try to connect any device (Pc, Kindle,iPod, etc.) via WiFi. However, If I run an ethernet cable into my laptop I can access the internet and router without any problems. I have changed the routers firewall settings back to default. I have also switched out the router with another, but the problem still exists. Any ideas on what I should do?

Hello! :welcome: to BC!

Does this continue to happen with a different router as well? Did you change any settings that may have caused this?

The problem still exists after switching out the router with a new one yes, I also restored all of my settings back to the factory default, including the firewall.

That is the thing,I have done that as well. They told me it was a personal issue with my router..I like to think I am decent with networking but I am stumped on this one. Do you think it could be virus trying to broadcast across the network? Therefore, The router shuts off automatically?

A virus on the desktop (desktop is connected via ethernet cable), then when I connect a device with Wifi, the virus tries to access that device by going through the routers firewall? Therefore, shutting it down. Can that happen? Or would the firewall just block it?

I think the firewall would just handle traffic going out of or coming into your network, not traffic on the network itself.

Is the router's IP address conflicting with the address handed out by the ISP modem?

Try setting up a LAN only.....reset router to factory default, connect one PC hardwired to router and one WIFI connection, do not connect router to your modem.

Try the WIFI settings as open first, then adjust security as desired if you can connect.

Let me know if that works, ie you can create a local network

What router model and have you check the manual for your router for default settings? Check also for firmware updates for the router and run Minitool box while on wireless to post network details.
