I have recently signed up foy Sky max, and when i recieved my netgear router, i experienced the internet connection dropping off.
Network Still present.
Router still showing all lights as green.
No internet connection, althought both the router says it has a connection, my xp network devices having a connection.
Things i have done to try and resolve this issue.
1)Reset the Router multiple times.....(today has been extremely bad. 7 times in the last 5 hours.
2)Replaced the 1 Master Socket filter... its the only phone socket in the house 3 times over, with filters provided from sky and my own filters.
3)Removed the windows firewall thinking it might have something to do with it.
4)I now have fitted the Router stand to increase cooling to the box hoping this might be the fault.
Network setup is as follow......
Master Socket -> Filter -> dslcable -> Router -> Ethernet running upstairs to a Network exchange into my office.
As far as im aware i have done everything i can to try and prevent the symptons, only thing left is to flash the firmware or ring BT about my line..
(just to add, I tried flashing my first SKY netgear, upon fragging it, got a replacement....)
Please help, as its frustrating......

Shame you didn't have a quick read of the forum before messing around with your filters/firewall etc.
If you had then you'll have seen that disconnections are not at all uncommon. The three most common reasons are (in order of likelihood):
* The UPnP "bug" (turn it off in your router to fix it).
* Falling noise margin (see first sticky in my signature).
* A build up of line errors (post your stats).
From your description, sounds like UPnP to me.

Also check your phone line for noise, see this thread as an example of what can happen-
i find this odd

Hi guys me again.
Update from yesterdays SAGA.
as far as i was aware yesterday from when i turned uPnP off in the Router everything worked fine om the computer, BUT as far as i was aware, i had no other attached Network devices on or using data.
In my front room i have a Xbox working as a media centre connected to the Netgear, and its streaming media from my main computer upstairs... everything works for half hour maybe then i lose all networks connections starts telling me invalid computer name.
Is this because the uPnP is turned off it is have attatched device problems, because although they have all been assigned there own network ips it still does it i think.
What i have done, is on the Xbox iinstead of the DHCP being auto assigned i have assigned it an ip now so maybe we had IP clashes which was causing the problem.....
This problem is really annoying as its dropping the network and not just hte internet connection.
Many future thanks....

Hi guy's..... i thought of manually setting the ips of all machines in an attempt to stop the ip class of attatched device, but i lost it all, so i scrubbed myself back onto the Auto assign DHCP, its picked up now, so maybe i might be in luck or tomorrow is another. day...
any advice on these network issues?

in reference to the MTU setting, the software suggested to check the BEST MTU setting suggested 1492, so i adjusted it, havent had any probs at the minute but was getting regular Error 300.
i know that that is poss down to SKY not havig enough IP's to go round or what, im a lil confused on my situation

Yes, have a look here - "Ipconfig /All" Command Shows the Node Type as Unknown

yep, ok, but what if i cant find that reg key..
To resolve this issue, use Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) to locate the following key in the registry:
Change the value of the EnableProxy value in the preceding registry key to 0 or 1, quit Registry Editor, and then restart your computer.

To be honest, I don't think it is anything to worry about, this seems to be the default in XP Home anyway. In Vista Home, it is Hybrid. What problem do you think it is causing?
