      Router cutting out

      Hi.
      I am having the problem that my router keeps cutting out. I have had a look around the forums but most of the reported problems seem to be with the Sagem fast, i dont have that one i have the one with the dimples on top. could anyone tell me if it needs a firmaware upgrade the router says the firmware is 2.8sky is this old ? it says no new firmware is available when i try but i am fed up with the constant cut outs. Thanks for any help.

      You need to be more specific. What do you mean by 'cutting out'? What lights are lit when it 'cuts out'?

      Re: Router cutting out

      I'm interested in this also. My fairly new DGN1000(ADSL2+Modem) router 'drops out' every day. Sunday was impossible, couldn't get on line although the internet access thingy on the task bar showed all was well. My ISP agrees that my access is sporadic & has booked an engineer for tomorrow(Tues.)
      Be interesting to hear the results!

      You will have the original Sagem router, the F@st 2504. You also have the latest firmware. The Sagem suffered with poor PSUs which can throw up all sorts of problems. If you have a compatible PSU, 12v, give it a try and see if it makes any difference.

      When you say it is cutting out, is it loosing the internet connection or is it the wireless that is dropping.
