My dlink dir-615 keeps kicking my laptop off the internet

I'm getting a great signal from the router, and I have no problem connecting to it and getting on the internet, however after about 5 or 10 minutes ill lose the internet (while still connected to the network) I can easily disconnect and reconnect, and suddenly I'm online again.

It seems like I get kicked off the internet much faster if I'm downloading or loading many pages at once in different tabs.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Could be you need to adjust the MTU in the router -- default is 1500 and you might start by adjusting in increments of 100 and then fine tune to by 10. A free download of a program like TCPOptimizer may help calibrate your connection.

    I think I would also check the firmware version of your router then visit the D-Link site and see if there's a newer version.

    I raise this because my neighbours were running a 615 and I accidentally broke into their WPA secured system while testing another wireless router. I wont tell you how, but I was able to reproduce how I'd done it and have heard since that there can be security issues with some D-Link models.

    You can sometimes work out if someone else has accessed your system by checking the log (first correct the date the log is using) the router also has a facility to detect who is online.

    It's not inconceivable that if someone else is borrowing your service they'll kick you off when you are using a lot of bandwidth.
