I deon't have a belkin, but it's usually in the Wan setup, possibly where you had to store your username ect.

The wireless network is often interrupted.
1. Move your wireless PC closer to the Router to find a better signal.
2. There may also be interference, possibly caused by a microwave oven or 2.4GHz cordless phones. Change the location of the Router or use a different wireless channel.

on my belkin cable router, you type into your web browser address bar.....

to get to the setup pages

take a look around but if you change things, write down what you changed so you can go back and unso if it hasnt helped.

its not usually the actual network that goes down, it is the modem downstairs which keeps disconnecting. i bought a adsl modem and router built in to get rid of my old modem, but this one is frequently disconnecting and can take ages to reconnect.

check the properties for the modem, there may be a setting that says "disconnect when idle for X minutes" X is normally set as 5 but yours may be different. there may also be an option to turn off the setting.

right click the modem and choose properties.

good luck

as i had no software to install for the router and modem there is no icon to click to go onto the modem properties as far as i can see.

please any more ideas, the internet is still disconnecting on its own.
