Windows 7: Wireless Connection dropped

Not to confuse you or anything but it would show that its part of the issue, it could still be your cable modem. Further testing would be needed from what I can tell. Like resetting the router to default settings. Taking stuff like a router out of the loop just shows where the issue is finding the cause after that is the fun part and takes more testing to trouble shoot.

well now that i want it to disconnect so I can track the problem at least on my end I can't get it to happen. I don't know if unpluggin the modem 3 times now has fixed it, or taking the router out for a connection fixed it. Plus I have not heard worked if road runner internet has any connection issues in my area.

So how is the testing going on your end?

I connected my comp to the modem directly and the internet is working perfectly fine. So, I guess the problem is with the router? right? I either got to find whats wrong with the router or buy a new one.

Well I just found out that my cable modem was connected to the power supply from my router. they were both 12v 1.0A but my modems receive power level went from 2dBmV to 5.5dBmV so I think I found my issue. or at least part of it. still have to test if the router will work now that I have the power issue out of my way.

to see some cable modem stats type 192.168.100.1 into your web browser. I get a status screen about my modem and the power levels. It also auto refreshes in a window for me.

unplug your router for about 30 seconds, also look for a reset button before you connect it again to see if the problem returns. if it returns then yes your router is the issue and fixing it or get a new one. If it doesn't return well there could be many things that caused it. If you have custom settings in your router and if when re-connected the issue is still gone then redo your settings one at a time to see if they cause any issue.

Thanks macgyver2 for your help, as well as everybody! . I'll let you know if its fixed, or else I'll probably end up buying a new router.

seeing a lot of failures in there as I don't know what all those mean it really sounds like its your modem from that log. those DHCP failures seem to be whats reseting your connection at least that would be my best guess from a quick read. If I can find what some of those codes are I might be able to see whats happening.

this looks like the modem is linking up with your router or the server it gets its IP not sure but either way its an issue that will keep your offline.
I had issues getting my router back online and so far now that the correct cords are connected on my end things seem to be working for now.
