      Router requires reboot 5 minutes after turning on

      Hi all,

      I've been loitering around these pages for the past couple of days (reading mainly the stickies), and am finding it a fantastic website with an active and knowledgable community. My router problems seem to be common in that I get intermittent connectivity but I haven't yet found the right course of action to resolve them (if such a resolution exists!).

      I'm using my Sky router (Netgear DG834GT) in wireless mode with only my laptop or PS3 connecting to it at a given time. When I'm not online I switch the router off at the mains.

      After turning the router on, I get an internet connection but only for about 5 minutes before the Noise Margin drops below 6dB and only a reboot via the Maintenance menu resolves the problem for another hour or so.

      I've run TCPOptimiser and while it didn't increase my connection speed it did recommend lowering my MTU setting to 1472. It's early days but this does appear to keep my Noise Margin around 6.5dB or is this a coincidence? UPnP is on as switching it off didn't make any difference.

      Any advice appreciated.

      Mark
