If internet is covered in his rent definately he has a right to know. I was online again, no problem. Even if you had Ethernet wiring put in several years ago, it might not be up to snuff with Cat 5E or Cat 6 to handle GigE. It doesn't even say it cannot connect, its just a white page. I have the driver disk that came with the adapter though and have been using that. Also, could interference be causing the problem? If you can, I hope its better! Anyone here ever have this problem? I would use for measurement. I am very desperate to get it fixed because its very frustrating to be in the middle of an important conversation and then have my Wi-Fi suddenly not work.
Does that give you a clue which connection is which router? I had to call out cable and broadband provider, Cox Communications, a few times before I had a stable connection to the modem after trying to replace the modem as one fix, to no avail. You can google traceroute if you do not understand it. Renewing the Lease did nothing Messing around with the Wi-Fi controls did nothing since I have no idea what I need to do with it to fix this. An installer could come in, and depending on the existing home wiring, set up a distributed network for computers and video from a single set-top terminal. Im from the usa this never happened with road runner internet. Other computers can still connect without issue, only this one is having the problem.
Not sure what else to do. Seriously is this quite normal? So what is probably happening is, the timer is set to its maximum time which is roughly short of 24hours by a fifteen minutes. Otherwise if it's only dead for about 3 minutes, I think it's a scheduled reboot to ensure the wireless stays reliable. There's a cable modem connected to Videotron situated somewhere you can't see it. This way, you start afresh and get rid of possibly problematic customizations and settings on your device. Mark I am having the same problem for about a month now.
There is a new firmware available that could fix this issue. After numerous calls with no solutions from the cable company, I replaced the splitter and voila, problem fixed. Doing this, I am hoping to avoid a call in the near future claiming that the WiFi I just setup is no longer working. It's still on the wifi. I would time out for this reason, but this issue is also present for a lot of general wireless issues. If the simple steps below don't work, we have a more detailed , or you can check out some. Powerline networking has the most ubiquitous potential footprint, in that every electrical outlet in the same panel is a potential network drop.
This leads me to believe its the actual phone line, but if that was true then why does the ethernet still work? After the router restart - all is good. Now think of your Internet connection as a car on a congested freeway during rush hour. Thanks for all the help. During a period when it's not working, then again when it is working, run this test and post the results here each time. A copper wire expands during the day and at night when sun isnt out, it contracts that may cause Internet to mailfunction.
MarkFlax and sunwatcher: I spent about half an hour going through my router's setup pages and stumbled across a page that kept a history of the computers that have had access to my router, and they are all computers from my home: macbook pro, macbook air, and two iphones. If you wont want to encrypt, bad idea go into the router config and look for the list of clients. Thus multiple solutions could be in place with a single system, appearing identical to the routing hardware. Comcast exchanged my modem at no charge. But in most cases WiFi works best in environments in which it's an obvious solution. Made a mistake at reading it. This all started in October? Once, there were three such wired alternatives, plus Ethernet.
Hopefully someone has because this problem is just driving me crazy. We usually prefer members not to post duplicates, but there are occasions where doing so may help. Like send iMessage or Skype or FaceTime or go online so it doesn't let me do anything but it says its still connected. When i first got here, the internet wifi was very bad at that place. The next day or so, i went to bed pretty late so just going online. I might add I know just how it is.
Hey, thanks for all the replies guys. Once submitted, these posts cannot be edited. I tried looking and I don't recall downloading or installing anything around the time the problem started. Thanks Greg Hi gburdzin and Skywalker the schedule works also with the latest firmware. After enabling it to turn off wireless signal by schedule within a given time frame the wifi-signal does not turn off by itself. When typing the password, be careful about letters and numbers that look alike. What happens with your wifi router and computer s is your responsibility.
This will tell you how far from your house the error is occurring. Im on the other hand on the 4th floor so its basically next to impossible to have a ethernet cable that long to connect it to as if i do this, it would obstruct the walking on the stairs. Mark Not sure if you updated your original post but since you say you have plugged directly into the router anything related to the wireless is not relevant. Installing Ethernet was far too expensive. I wonder why my wifi is perfect during the day time and then all of a sudden in the eveing and at night it keeps timing out i can hardly do anything online it is so snnoying!!! Our wifi internet was working fine for everyones laptops in our house up until recently, but now wifi is not working, the network shows up but wont let us put in a password and says 'connection timeout occured' when we try. Once done, check if the WiFi is working. With consumer internet the load is at night ie non working hours.
I find it strange in canada an internet company does this. Of course, if your home or office isn't wired for Ethernet, you suddenly have an expensive problem. Has anyone ever heard of any fixable internet connection problems only occurring at night? When I saw your thread title it made me glad that I go to bed early. It can be done, but I'm pretty sure almost no one does it right. Sounds like you have it protected correctly.
