Hi ,

Someone please help.

I have an intermittent problem, every now and again when I turn on my laptop,I can connect to the router but when I open a web page I get nothing?

I can get the internet working by entering the config utility 192.168.2.1 then pressing "connect" and then the belkin passord prompt comes up then I press submit ( defualt blank password).

As soon as I do this, if I then open a web page it works?

Does anyone have a solution for this?

I have tried with no antivirus,latest firmware is on.

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

On the second page of Wan setup there is an option to disconnect after a period of inactivity. If its selected try deselecting it.

The other possibility is that your ISP is taking the connection down when you aren't using it.

Hi

Tried that still the same, can the isp not disconnect if I request it?
