Keeps disconnecting a session
« on: April 29, 2011, 10:40:43 AM »

Hi everyone,

I log in to work from home and if I am inactive for 5-10 minutes, I lose connection to my work server.  If I bypass the router, this problem doesn't happen.  Anyone know how I can change settings to keep my session alive?  Thanks in advance!

BTW, I am not a network guy, so please provide enough details in your response that I can follow.  Thank you!

What is your ISP service? Cable or DSL?
What is your ISP modem? Stand alone or built in router?
How are you connecting to the router? Wired or wireless?
How are you connecting to the work server? VPN, HTTP?
What program are you using to connect? SW? Web Broswer?
What OS are you using?

3.  I am connecting via wireless.
4.  Use HTTP to connect to work.
5.  Web Browser.
6.  Windows 7 Home Edition, 64-bit. 

Thanks again!

Does the same thing happen if wired to the router?
Try changing the WiFi mode from Mixed to Single mode G to test.
Try using a different browser like Opera or FF or Flock. Same thing happen?

OK, I'll give each of these a try and report back in a few.  Thanks.

Ok,
Lets try setting up a static IP address for the PC your using on the routers web page under Setup/Networking.
Down at the bottom of this page will be a section. You should see your PCs IP address here along with the MAC address and maybe a name. If not a name then we can change that. Select the Reserve word link to the right in this row for your PC. This will auto fill in the section above. Here you can change the Name and even IP address if you wish to something else in the last number. Leave it if you want to. Once your done, select Add or Save button.
Ensure DNS Relay is ON. You might try turn it off as a test. You'll need to reset the router and PC if you do this.
Ensure that Primary and 2ndary DNS addresses are being filled in under Setup/Internet/Manual.
Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you see this option.
Turn off QoS.
Set up Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP.

It's possible that we might have to set up a port or application rule to help maintain the connection. Something is getting dropped and turned off prematurely.

Are there any PC Anti-Virus or 3rd party firewall programs installed? These can effect connection if you don't tell them to allow certain things. Just checking here.

Let us know.

Thanks, I reserved the IP.  For now I left DNS Relay to ON.  Will also try turning that off later to see if that will fix it, but for now I'l test with that setting turned on. 

Primary/Secondary DNS are filled.

Advanced DNS Services was already off.

I'm going to look for QoS and the Firewall settings now and will configure them as you suggested.

I am running Symantec Internet Security.  However, I don't think that this is a problem, since I don't have any problems when I have bypassed the D-Link router. 

I'll make the QoS and Firewall changes and test to see if the problem persists.  Will update you shortly. 

And again, thank you!!!

Understand about not seeing the same issue with Norton IS loaded and you connected with out the router, however introducing a device to the system and now that your having to go thru another kinda of Firewall, this can possibly introduce connection issue. IMO, running extra firewall SW is a bit too redundant when you have HW firewall going at the same time.

I would be a good test to turn off Norton IS or at least the FW side of it and see if you exhibit the same symptom. Hope we can help figure this out. Keep us posted.

Im thinking that having 2 firewalls on the same network and norton probably was the issue here. If you think you really need Norton FW installed I would try to set it up to allow what ever connection, port or address thru. Personally I would only run Norton AV only and let the router hand the Firewall stuff.

Got it, I'm going to turn off the Norton firewall. 

It feels so good to not have to log in 20 times to work...just log in once and stay logged in for days I guess!  Love it!!  Thanks again!

The problem is back!!!  :(((((

I've been dealing with it for a couple of weeks now, because I didn't have the time to deal with it.  I just tried everything in this thread once again, but this time the problem still persists.  Any suggestions on what to do next?  Thank you!

And you turned off Norton FW I presume?
Ensure that Primary and 2ndary DNS addresses are being filled in under Setup/Internet/Manual.
Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you see this option.
Turn off QoS.
Set up Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP.
Try turning off uPnP under Advanced/Networking

Are there any log entries noting of something during this time frame when you see this disconnection?  ???
