      Router crashes after prolonged high-bandwidth network usage

      Hi,

      I've got a Netgear dg834gt router which has been great so far, however I've recently bought a Playstation 3 and PSP Go, and have been streaming movies to the PS3 (upnp/dlna) and using PS3<->PSP Remote Play too.

      Both of these activities cause the router to crash after about a hour of use (the router needs to be restarted for it to work properly, cannot access it at all otherwise).

      I was wondering if anyone has come across these problems before? I've been reading through the forums and it seems like upnp could be the cause, however it would suck to lose the ability to stream movies to the PS3.

      Thanks in advance for any help!

      -- Neil

      Do you have it stood up on end on its legs and has it plenty of free air around it? I ask, as the only thing I can think of that would cause this is overheating, especially if you are also using wireless. Many found that these routers will overheat very quickly if used on flat.
