      Constant disconnections

      Well I've had wireless up and running for a month or so. Worked great until this morning I was losing connection every 30 or so minutes. Just pulling the power cable out of the router and putting it back in again seems to work and I get internet for another 30 minutes. It's constant and I keep having to go downstairs to reboot it. Funny thing is all the computers connected lose internet, not just the wireless ones. I have the main PC next to it connected via ethernet, and 2 PCs upstairs via wireless. Would disabling uPnP help?
      Edit: Disabled uPnP, powered the router off then on and I got no internet connection. Turned uPnP back on and internet came back. Dunno what's going on.

      ^^^ I think you will need to post your detailed Router stats to give a clue as to what is going on.

      Re: Constant disconnections

      Hello, I have similar problems, i get disconnected after 30 minutes online, almost to the very second every time. I've turned off upnp and there's been no change. I'm quite technically backwards but willing to try anything at the moment.

      Two pc's in the flat, no wireless shenanigans, and other then these disconnection you can set your watch by, the service is absolutely fine.

      These are my less detailed stats, how do I go about getting the extremely techy stuff?

      System Up Time 00:52:47
      Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
      WAN PPPoA 17891 20020 0 4967 9685 00:24:18
      LAN 10M/100M 27836 24974 0 5185 2597 00:52:45
      WLAN 11M/54M 892 0 0 16 0 00:52:35

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 4288 kbps 416 kbps
      Line Attenuation 16.0 db 11.5 db
      Noise Margin 9.8 db

      Any help very very greatly appreciated...

      Thanks very much, I have Bounce installed now and I'll post the stats in 24 hours time to see if anyone more intelligent then me can make sense of it.

      Much appreciated.

      Re: Constant disconnections

      Problem seems to have gone away, no disconnections for 18 hours. If it starts again, I'll make another post in this topic.
