Router Keeps on Disconnecting: Unable to find wireless connections

Asked By 1030 points N/A Posted on -

I have a router used for wireless to laptop and a wired connection for Playstation 3 and the desktop.

At first it worked fine but it would disconnect after around 30 minutes. I tried to contact online support and they suggested me to hard reset the router. I followed all the instructions given; reset the router and set up the connection again and now I wasn’t able to find the wireless connection.

I’ve tried many times to manually add a wireless connection to the laptop but it doesn’t work. Tried for an answer on Google for anything similar to my problem but found no answer. What is the possible solution for my problem?

Please check whether you are able to access the internet through the wired connection. If you can access the network through the wired connection then the problem can be due to the wireless router or the wireless adapter of your laptop.

So you can check whether your laptop wireless adapter is working properly by connecting it to some other wireless router. If your are able to connect to the network then you can be sure, that it is the problem of your wireless adapter on your laptop.

You can refer to the manual of your router for setting up the router correctly. You can access the settings of your wireless router by typing the IP address 192.168.2.1 on the address bar of your browser. You can see many options in the settings. Then you can find whether the SSID of the wireless router is hidden. If the SSID of your wireless router is hidden then you can change it so that it is visible. Then you can check whether the wireless connection can be found in your laptop.

Also since you have reset your wireless router you may have to enter the settings for making a connection to the internet. You can contact your internet service provider for getting the settings of your internet connection. You can then insert the CD of your wireless router into the computer and then connect your router to the computer's Ethernet port. Then you can follow the on screen instructions and enter the details provided by the Internet Service Provider into the router. Then you can try to access the internet. Also make sure that DHCP is on  the settings of your router.

If the problem is on your laptop, you can try to reset the connection. For that you can select start button and then you can select the control panel. In the control panel you can select the networking and sharing center. Then you can select the change adapter settings from the options. Then you can select your wireless adapter and then from the available options on top of the window you can select the disable this device. This will disable your wireless adapter. After that you can select the enable this device option from the top of the window. This will again enable the device. After that you can check whether you are able to connect to the network and can access internet.

If you are still not able to connect then, you can uninstall driver for the wireless adapter and then you can install the latest version of the driver. For that you can download the latest version of the driver from the internet that is compatible with your operating system and then you can install it on your computer. For uninstalling the old driver you can select the start button and then you can select the device manager. Then you can select the wireless adapter and then you can right click on the adapter and then select uninstall. After that you can install the new driver and then you can check whether you can connect to the wireless network.

Your router's IP address has changed after you did the reset. This is the reason why your laptop does not see your router.

Every IP address has it's own subnet and before you reset your router, both your router and your laptop had the same subnet. However, when you do the reset, your router has now acquired a different IP address with a different subnet.
 
The solution for this, is to go straight to the default IP address of the router. Every router, when reset, will automatically attain a default IP address, so to say. This default IP address is documented in your router's manual. After you acquire the IP address, use that in your laptop to connect to your router. This IP address can also be used for router configuration.

Check our Laptop. There is a physical button, which can enable or disable the Wireless Adapter of your Laptop. May be, your Wireless Adapter is somehow disabled.

You can see in your Laptop Keyboard, there is Fn key and  From (F1 – F12) key, there is a Wireless Sign. Press Fn+F(1-12) keys. Your Wireless adapter will be enabled again. Try this.   Hope it will work for you.
