Belkin F5D 7630-4A keeps dropping connection BT broadband connection

  1. Hi all -

    I have recently purchased a Belkin wireless modem / router. My
    Internet keeps dropping and I am trying to figure out why.

    I have one XP machine connected via a Cisco 350 wireless card to the
    Belkin. The Belkin is connected to the net via BT broadband. I have
    two phone jacks in my home and have swapped the filters to test them.

    My connection dropped intermittently over a period of 3 - 4 days about
    a month ago. Then it was stable for about 2 - 3 weeks and I noticed
    the same problem happening for approx 2 days. Then stable again until
    yesterday about 3pm when the connection started giving me problems

    I don't notice the lights on the router all the time, however there
    doesn't seem to be any consistency as to whether the lights go out or
    stay on when the connection drops.

    I have run all the usual checks (powered down equipment, etc) but am
    willing to explore settings, hardware and wires again. BT is also on
    the case checking out the connection.

    Has anyone experienced the same problem? Any light you can shed?

    Sounds like an intermittent line problem since it happens - maybe low SNR.

    Does the router reboot when you lose connection? (go to the routers security
    log and see if its been wiped)

    Also try going to after logging in
    to the router and make a note of the SNR (Noise Margin) and Attenuation

    You can also try disconnecting all the telephones/Sky boxes, extension
    wiring etc and just stick the router in the master socket by itself - see of
    that makes a difference.

    Finally have you updated to the latest firmware? Belkin released a new
    version last month...

    I have a similar problem with Belkin wireless router dropping out modem
    which just started a week ago. Still trying to find out why. Have not
    updated firmware as the router has been working without any problem for

    Tying to find out if problem is related to XP SP2 and Zone Alarms firewall.
