Why is my TP-LINK TL-WR841N timing out?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Since I bought this nearly a month ago when I try to open a webpage a page comes up that google is trying to search for the page. It does it wired and wireless on the router. TP LInk's tech support didnt fix the problem. I don't need a very fancy router just one that works. Also my other router did it as well. It was a rosewill with dd-wrt. I am the only user on the network. Im only using one machine at a time. It's very important because everything I have is wireless in my casa. My other wireless devices do the same thing. It was only $25. Does every router do this? How can I fix it? I did try setting it to certain modes.

Right as I tried to open the page this page popped up. "Oops! Google Chrome could not find www.tp-link.com

Do you live in a house or an apt?

Are there many other WiFi signals around you?

Have you tried Meraki Wifi Stumbler to see whats in the airwaves around you?

I have it on my Android phone...works well for showing what's around you

Do you get the same behavior when setting your PC to use another DNS server, such as Google's public one at 8.8.8.8 ?

If this alleviates the issue you could inject that DNS address into the DHCP settings on the router in order to propagate to all of your LAN devices.

I use comcasts dns servers. They are way faster.

I had nothing but flaking out with them similar to the behavior you've indicated.

How faster is 'way' faster?

Try turning off the firewall on the router and see if you can access the site. I had a similar problem and that fixed it.
