    Belkin router

    I have a Belkin router, and receive this ID Event message everyday on boot up.
    I don't know what this means. During the day I loose my internet access and have to reboot
    the router, this happens a few times a day.
    Not sure if the router needs replacing.
    Any help please.

    If IPv6 is checked for your network adapter, uncheck it.

    That message indicates that your system cannot find an automatic proxy configuration server / file. This is not an issue with your router and can be ignored - we all get that message if there is no WPAD server.

    Having to reset your router every day could be either a line problem or a router issue.
    Try resetting your router to factory default settings.
    Do others near you have a similar problem?
    Do you have another router you can test?

    cheers, Paul

    Contact your ISP and report an unstable connection - they should run a line test and that way you may be able to eliminate the router as the cause.

    Have you checked with Belkin about a firmware update? I have a [different brand] Router that would lose the connection fairly regularly until I updated its firmware, has been quite stable ever since. Most Routers have 3 functions, one is the power switch, one process is unplugging the power cord and the Reset button is in a hole reachable by a pointy object and that resets to factory, loses passwords, etc.

    I had a case once where a wireless extender kept losing its connection. The router would autoscan the channels and pick the best one. Whenever this happened, the wireless extender would lose its connection to the router. I set the router so that it would stay on the same channel all the time, and after that, the wireless extender never lost its connection.

    If the firmware update doesn't fix the problem, try setting the router so that it will stay on the same channel all the time.
