Always Reset Router?

Recommended Posts

It's odd...

 

Sometimes my Internet just stop working, and I have to reset my Router (Turn it off, turn it on).

 

And it works normally again.

 

- It's LinkSYS WRT-54G.

- I have 2 Computers.

- The IP address automatically configured by WinXP.

- I'm using Comcast Cable Modem.

- Sometimes it just once a day to reset..

- Sometimes every 10 minutes (the sickest one).

 

I tried to update the driver, but still not works properly.

 

- It's something to do with my windows setting?

- Or need new router? (Which I believe my router is not that old).

- Or... I dunno x_X

 

Any helps?

Try entering your router configuration page and release/renew WAN IP from there instead of resetting, so you can pinpoint down to that problem.

 

Also check your access logs on your router.

I always get that problem.

 

I just unplug/replug it back in.

What router do you have? My Microsoft MN-700 (Windows CE based) rarely needs a reboot, maybe once every few months :S

 

It crashed twice in a day once because of an incoming overflow though.

And now how to:

 

- Check the access log of the router.

- To know what caused the router overload.

- Release/Renew from Router Page?

 

What is router page? A page from web browser by typing (mine) 192.168.1.1 ?

I couldn't find a place to 'renew/release' the router from there.

 

I tried from DOS command prompt, did ipconfig /release and /renew

But it seems like the same. Does it something to do with the "Lease Expires" when I typed ipconfig /all in cmd?

I am not sure about yours, but here's my friend's Linksys router:

 

(FYI I hacked his password :S )

Aaah.. it's under "STatus".. lol. Thanks.

 

And btw, this is a preventive method right?

Because once the router is getting stupid, and disconnected from internet, I can't even open my router page =/

 

But this is weird...

 

Allright then, but if there's any thought to prevent doing this from time to time.. please share.

You can't open the router page? Either it's your computer or likely your router crash, as you said earlier. Hmm...

 

Any access logs (Like a flood, or QoS configs, etc)
