    I am using Netgear wireless router in India (Purchased in UK) with BSNL broadband connection. I will have the connection and every thing is fine. But some time the connection will get cut and I will not be able to browse or check mails or download things properly. There is a known issue with netgear router. The IP address provided by the service provider should be static. Otherwise we will have problem in using netgear router. So in there web site they have given the solution as – We have to ask our service provider for static IP address. But here in BSNL we will not get static IP address. Now my router is not at all working. Service provider is advicing us to reset the router and configure it again. But if I have to do the same thing when ever I get problems, it is a tedious job. So request you to provide with a paremanent solution for the same and oblige.

    Thanks & with best regards,

    I installed the router under a BSNL connection and is working very well. This router and the interface is pretty easy to install. However, the connection will drop if there are other devices operating at the same frequency. That happens with other routers as well.

    I purchased the product in Jan 08 here in Bombay. I have the same problem as mr. N.G.Venkatesha. The connection gets cut off at times. so it is difficult to have a continous connection. Dont know why. My service provider said I have to either download a updated software or keep re-settting my router. Its not working now… Please provide a solution.

    Dear Sir,
    (1) I have a Tata VSNL WiMax connection in Bangalore and I want to connect it to a wireless router which can cover my two flats (Flats are identical, one over the other i.e. ground floor and first floor) and I want our family members to connect to internet wirelessly using their laptops. Each flat is three bedroom and area of each flat is about 1800 Sq Ft.
    (2) Can some one suggest which router should I buy. Somebody has suggested WGR 416 but I guess the basic model can not cover more than 10 feet. Are there some versions of WGR416 which can give the range I want. And where can I get it. Thank you

    I have a WGR614 router. Sometimes the connection gets disconnected. Do you have any solution for this problem.

  15. George Moshi

    Hi amit.,

    It appears that the problem could be something related to the ip address conflict between the modem and the router.

    Probably you could try fixing the issue by disabling the dhcp in you router., which means you will be getting the ip address for the laptops from the modem.The router will act just as an access point.

    Give it a shot and i hope it will help you.

  16. Saurabh Srivastava

    Hi amit,

    as you say that u can ping websites after connecting your Laptop to netgear router then you will be able to access webpages for sure…
    You can probably try this command utility on command prompt once you are connected…


    You can also try to disable the firewalls as this can also be the problem. The final resolution will be to reinstall TCP/IP
