      Re: Sky Router keeps Freezing/locking up!!

      Hi Mate,

      yeh being a Computer Science Student (hehe) im pretty technical so i had a go myself equiped with a half idea of what to do

      I have now totally stopped using UPnP Nework wide...

      DC++ and Azureus are running perfectly under port forwarding now......All thats left is to Static IP the 2 wireless PCs' i have so fingers crossed.

      I may even write a STICKY to help people port foward their SKY ROUTER......Any help to do this would be appreciated

      Good idea. There are several already in the tutorial and P2P forums - maybe you could build on these?

      Also, as suggested before, you can always use the router's address reservation feature for each PC/Laptop which will mean you don't need to set up static IPs.

      • open up network connections on your PC/laptop
      • double click local area network to open it
      • click on the support tab
      • make a note of the IP address
      • log into the router
      • select LAN IP setup
      • click add under address reservation
      • choose your PC/laptop (it will have the IP address you noted)
      • click add then apply

      From now on whenever you power up the PC/laptop it will always be given that IP by the router.

      Re: Sky Router keeps Freezing/locking up!!

      I've ran into a somewhat problem similar to this but the router hasn't locked up. Its the connection that has locked up. Sometimes, not always whatever seems to happen 10 to 20 minutes after midnight the connection dies while everything says it is connected and white lights.

      Only a power down (unplug) wait a few minutes then power back up the router establishes the connection.

      Can never predict when it'll happen.


      I seem to have necro posted. I could have sworn it said 2017 as I found this through google.
