      Re: Kernel Intrusions?

      Oh okay guys. I see your points and where your trying to come from but the major issue is here is that my internet will drop out around 40-50 times a day. Its becoming impossible to do my online work which earns me alot of revenue. I really hope someone sees this post with a solution or just hope to god that one day this all just stops.

      Re: Kernel Intrusions?

      Although it halves your speed, I would be inclined to test the Sky router to see if that drops your connection at all. I know you'd probably refuse this but it seems to be the only option at the moment that you haven't tried and results haven't been reported here. It wouldn't obviously be a viable long term solution but may be something to consider and is probably the easiest option to troublshoot issues here on the forum.

      As long as your computer security software is up-to-date and your router logs this information then your router is doing its job.

      Re: Kernel Intrusions?

      I used to have the same problem with the Sky router with the same kinda Kernel reports so I got this TP-Link to see if it would sort the issues with this Kernel intrusions and increase my speed. It increased to speed alot but it didn't stop the Kernel intrusions.

      Hmmm seems im at a dead end. Oh well thanks guys for your help.

      I don't know about the others, but I don't think the intrusions are anything to do with your connection dropping. For that to happen your router would have to be bombarded with more requests than it can handle, yours is not.

      I would also advise plugging in the Sky router, provided it has been updated you will have WPA2-AES security at your disposal, which is about as good as it gets for a home computer. Apart from anything else it may force a change in your IP address which may stop the intrusion attempts.

      I would also carry out some basic testing, including plugging your router into the Test socket for a period and see if the disconnections persist. It will also show you whether it is dropping the internet or simply dropping the wireless connection. At the same time, if you are not using uTorrent, uninstall it, you will be sure then that it is not causing problems.

      The snag is, if you have been using it, then your IP would still be in the list of IPs of IPs that have been hosting that software / movie etc - so unless a change of IP then people / PCs will still be trying to get those bits of software / movie etc

      Looking into possible reasons for your drop-outs, it seems your router has known problems.

      The reported solution is to change the network authentication (under Wireless-->Security) to "Mixed WPA2/WPA-PSK Personal".

      Worth a try if not already set to that?

      Re: Kernel Intrusions?

      Hey guys, sorry i have been really busy the last few days but I wanted to give you guys an update. The internet still drops out on WiFi but I have got an Ethernet cable to my PC now and the connection has not dropped so I think we can tell from this that the issue is with the WAN / Wireless?

      Any ideas where to go from now, I wish I knew a way to block WAN ping's via my router!

      Hope to hear from you guys soon.

      It is usually in the diagnostics section of your router settings.

      Re: Kernel Intrusions?

      I am not certain, but from what I have read 'ping' is automatically disabled on TP routers. To enable ping, you have to configure an ICMP rule in the firewall. I have just tried to ping your IP address and it times out, have you tried this yourself?
