Ok sorry to be a pain! but I am quite new to all this router stuff! I have been with Sky for 3 weeks and the first 2 weeks were fine but the last 4 days my connection has been up and down like a yo yo, it grinds to a halt taking 3 - 4 mins to load a page!! only pulling and reconnecting the power on the router fix's the problem for up to 6 -8 hours then back to square one! Now I have found my way onto the router menu, on router status it says Connection dowmstream 8mb upstream 375kb, this seems pretty constant even when connection has crashed! I didn't take much notice of other settings cos I dont know what they mean!! I did notice the other night that when it had locked I couldn't get into the router menu either!! Which makes me believe the problem could be on the wireless connection. Although laptop says connected at 54mb. Didn't try plugging cable in perhaps I should of. Just powered the router off then every thing was normal for a bit!! This is now driving me up the wall!!
I have read this thead and am getting very confused, can anyone give me a quick check list "idiot guide" as to the settings I need to check! Thanks, Kev.

@Koala5 What are your line stats, A really low NOISE MARGIN can cause disconnections?

Right I'm back! After a reboot that is! yes it had died again. I did have 35db noise downstream and 25db upstream. Just noticed the downstream has suddenly dropped to 12db.

I've set upnp off and set wireless from b-g to 108mhz auto. Any other suggestions. Unfortnately I wont know until tomorrow if it helped cos its takes that long to crash again usually!
