WRVS4400N wireless client has no internet access, unless first connected via cable
I recently purchased a WRVS4400N security router and have got a strange problem with it. I set it up as my main router and connected two computers (a desktop and a server) using DHCP. They both work fine, internet is as fast as it should be, no problems whatsoever.
However, when I setup the Wifi SSID (whatever security options I use, same with open/wpa/wpa2) and connect my laptop to it. It is allocated a IP address and windows even says that there is an internet connection. As soon as I try to do anything though, I am dropped. Try to ping an outside server, failure and dropped. Open IE, failure and dropped. I cannot even access my local server connected by wire to the router.
If I connect the laptop via a cable to the router everything works, and it continues to work when I unplug it. So this means that right now I walk over to the router and plug my laptop in for 3 seconds before I unplug it and then use the wifi for a couple of hours without any problem. But as soon as I try to turn on my wireless Logitech SqueezeBox or wireless printer, they fail and take my laptop with it..
reset the router, used both firmware 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 and done a factory reset.
Tried to move the router close to the laptop, no difference.
Does anybody have an idea as to what my problem could be?
No this isn't from a company. I bought it used from www.tradera.com (like ebay) . The seller tells me it worked fine for him and has agreed to refund me. Thank you for answering, I have worked with some cisco routers and firewalls before but this one really got me pulling my hair.
I take it from your response that this is a known error that is covered by warranty?
Mine and a few others that I know of have gone back under warrenty, but these units are not made any longer and if yours is used, probably does not have a warrenty with it.
You can always call Cisco and find out if it is out of Warrenty. The router itself is one hell of a router, when it works! lol Mine should be back with me today, can't wait to throw this POS Netgear in the trash....
