  • The issue is usually caused by one of three things: the driver for your wireless card, the firmware version on your router (basically the driver for the router) or settings on your router. Normally found that unless you’re using a really old wireless router, it’s more than likely an old driver for your wireless card that is the culprit. So you have to update the routers firmware.
    Updating router firmware is a not so trivial task that varies depending on the router brand you happen to have. Almost none of them have an automatic update feature. Instead you have to download the latest firmware from their website, log into your router and then upload it up perform the update.
    To get started, you need to figure out the IP address of your router and use that to log in via a browser.

  • We can try a few troubleshooting steps to fix disconnectivity issues on the router:
    1. Try to power cycle the network: Turn of the modem and router, then wait for a few seconds and turn on the modem first and then the router in sequence.
    2. Log in to your router’s GUI and check for any firmware upgrades available. If there is one available you can update your router.
    3. Reboot the router.
    4. You can also check direct connection with modem if its working fine. If not, you need to speak to your ISP for that.
    5. At last you can login to the router’s GUI again and make sure all the settings are good but that would involve a bit of networking experience.

  • Check Wired Connection: The wiring play a very vital role when it comes to disruptive signals or frequent disconnections. So if your Linksys router is frequently losing connection, chances are one of the wires have been damaged. Follow the steps below to resolve it.
    Make sure all the wires connecting your router to your computer and modem are in perfect working condition.
    If you find any wire damaged, replace it with the new one.
    If all the wires are working fine then move onto the next step.
    Update Drivers: Your routers come equipped with different software drivers and components responsible for maintaining functionalities of the router. So if one or the other network adapter fails or malfunctions, chances are you will get frequent disconnections. Follow these steps to resolve the driver issue.
    Drivers are responsible for a majority of the functionalities on your router, even the connectivity.
    So make sure all the drivers installed are in perfect working condition from the device manager of your computer.
    Go to the official website of Routers router of your region, then go to the Support/Download Driver section.
    Enter the model number of your device in its respective field, and all the listed drivers and firmware will be shown.
    Download all necessary drivers and install it on your computer. Restart the whole setup and see if the problem has been resolved.
    Reset your Routers Router: If the wired connection examination and updating of drivers did not resolve the problem, chances are there might be some internal software conflict. For these kinds of issues, we recommend the user to reset the routers.
    Press the Reset button at the back of your router machine for 30 seconds using a pointed object like pencil or pen.
    Once you press the button, all its settings will be reset to default and any internal snag will be wiped out.
    Reconfigure your router and start using it again.
