      Re: Connection dropping only when using newsgroups

      This is a capture of the noise margin over a 30 min period.

      The first drop is when I opened newsleecher and started downloading. The period before that was just general surfing, watching videos etc.

      Although it looks as if it comes back straight away it was down until I reset the router which is the last drop then you see it reconnected.

      The router displayed an orange light on the @ indicator while it was down.

      Are you using a wireless connection, if you are, try with a wire, you may find that the wireless is causing errors and swamping the connection causing the router t hang.

      I'm using the poweline adapters directly from the router to my pc in another part of the house. It's the Dovico ones, so no, i'm not using wireless for the pc that's causing the crash. My iphone and netbook are wireless though and haven't caused anything to go down however it is only the newsleecher program that's taking it down.

      As its Newleecher that's causing the router to drop out, can i suggest that you try a different news leecher program? just to rule out the program its self.
      What news provider are you subscribed to?

      I don't know that much about newsleecher but can you manually set the limit of connections newleecher opens. It's possible that too many connections are being opened than the router can handle. Try a low limit and see if you get the same problem, then slowly build it up.

      You can but there is a limit of 10-20 depending on the package you have.

      I have used 20 without issues here.

      I'm restricted to 5 with Newsleecher i'm sure, so i'll drop it to 1 and see how that goes.

      I'll also try to source a different newsgroup program

      It certainly looks like Newsleacher is knocking it off. But you should not have to reboot the router to get the connection back. When it drops it should reconnect almost immediately, there may be a problem with your router. Do you have another one you could try?
