PostPosted: Wed Nov 08, 2006 11:40 pm    Post subject: wireless network at home - cnnxtn doesnt last more thn 3 hrs Reply with quote Back to top

Hi,

Here is my problem - looks like my wireless network lasts only for 3 - 3.5 hrs. After that the wireless router goes off [even if the power supply is on].

Location: Salisbury, NC
ISP provider: broadband service by Road Runner [Time Warner Cable]
Vonage Router: Motorla VT2442
Current setup: cable modem -> Vonage router -> laptop [thru ethernet cable]

All has been fine [phone, internet] till the day I decided to use a wireless router. I currently have only one laptop and will be getting a new one this weekend. So decided to buy myself a Netgear WGR614 v6 wireless router.

Did the installation as per the installation guides: modem -> netgear router -> Vonage router -> phone. Laptop internet connection was wireless. Everything seemed to work but after 3 - 3.5hrs the Netgear router went off [even though power supply was on].

After searching thru this forum reconfigured network in this order: modem -> Vonage router -> netgear router. This worked but only for the same amount of time. Restarting tne network didnt help.

After seeing some more posts today, tried the Option 1 ideal config suggested by one of the sr members: cable modem -> wireless router -> Vonage router. Also in the wireless settings LAN IP setup reserved an IP address for the Vonage device [thinking that it will be the mentioned static IP]. But that didnt work either.

Called up Netgear tech support and they say there isnt any issue with the wireless router per se. Am I missing something during the setup? Is there any timeout option that I should disable/ make it as infinite?

Its been a miserable 3 days after I bought the router. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Have downloaded and done the upgrade as mentioned in the website. [its been 30 mins now] that my wireless router is running. Will keep the group posted if I face any issue around the 3hr barrier.

Well, the wireless router went blank again. This time much earlier than the usual 3 hrs - around 1 - 1.5 hrs. After installing the firmware this was my setup: cable modem -> netgear router -> Vonage adapter.

I heard that Time Warner doesnt allow home networking [because they have their own product/ service]. Could that be causing the issue?

Any reason why you are not doing this configuration?

If you do this and set up your netgear as a switch (i.e. disable it's dhcp and connect from your Vonage router to your netgear router port 1 instead of it's "internet or WAN" port, you should be fine. That's what I do with my connection.

Is your netgear still crapping out on you if you set it up this way? I would try these 2 changes.

So to summarize,

Modem -> WAN port of your Vonage router: From port 1 on Vonage router -> port 1 of netgear router.

Disable dhcp in netgear router. Now you have a wireless switch but not a wireless router.

Hope this helps.

If your netgear still craps out on your after 1.5 - 3 hrs, then something is wrong with your netgear. I'd go get it exchanged.

I connected netgear port1 to Vonage router. But when I tried 192.168.1.1 on the web browser wasnt able to reach the netgear router. How do I reach the netgear settings and disable dhcp when I have not connected it thru the WAN port?

you need to connect your computer to the netgear and restart the computer. Then you should be able to get to the netgear web configuration.
