3 comm 11g wireless router dropping connections

  phil_hear 17:40 24 Apr 2007

I have an office connect 11g wireless firewall router. When I am connected to the internet it keeps dropping connection. the logs do not show anything and it seems to be connected but if I'm in a game, MSN etc I am frozen. If I open a new IE window it all bursts into life. It looks like its sleeping.
Can anybody help please.

Hi Phil_hear

I think I've found the manual for your 3Com box :-
click here
(Caution - PDF link)

On Page 46 it details the "Internet settings" screen. There is a box about 2/3 the way down that is marked "Idle time". If this has a number in it; then the router will disconnect after that many minutes. Just empty that box and put 0 in and this will reset so that it should no longer disconnect.

If it's not that; then it could be a problem with the line rather than the router

Best of luck
