      Is 2304n wireless (still) an issue?

      Don't really know where the best place is to post this.

      Anyway, on 3rd day of DLM. Got my son a cat5e and shut wireless down a few days ago. Temporarily re-enabled wireless tonight for daughter.

      It is probably me wearing my conspiracy slippers again and nothing more than a coincidence but noticed a bunch of disconnects following wireless activation.

      Here is the log: (I've snipped MAC's and intrusions)

      Answers on a postcard please. (Cripes!, at this rate I'm going to be kicked out of here )

      Re: Is 2304n wireless (still) an issue?

      I was going to post a picture of a can of Spam with Cheese especially for you .

      I am guessing that was a copy of the contents of your system log. It looks like you are getting a lot or reconnections, nothing to do with the WiFi.

      Could you do 2 things initially please?

      1. post your connection stats (including the up times)
      2. confirm which firmware version your router has

      Next could you take a look at how your router is connected to your telephone system?

      Ideally it should be connected to the Mastet Socket, using the short grey ADSL lead supplied by Sky and a microfilter.

      It may be necessary to connect to the Test Socket (see previous link for details) to see if you have an internal wiring problem. When using the test socket, all extensions in your home should be dead, can you check that this is the case.

      If you are still getting disconnections, then a quiet line test will be required.

      Using a corded telephone plugged into the test socket, dial '1' and listen carefully for any noise. The line should be totally silent. Any hissing or crackling needs to be reported to your line provider (i.e. whom you pay the line rental to). If you are not with Sky Talk, then do not mention that you have broadband as this will confuse the issue. Your call provider is responsible for the quality of your telephone line.

      Just thought it a bit of a coincidence that the string of disconnections occured after enabling wireless - it was ok while it was knocked off. So, I wondered if the mere fact of wireless being operational possibly is (still ?) problematic (like overheating or firmware).

      I know the latest firmware (which mine came with) was meant to address a particular wireless issue. It's just strange; ok when wireless disabled - string of disconnects (just coincidental?) after enabling - and checking log this morning no diconnects in 10 hours so far since the string.

      Test-socket of Master (only box in house) -> filter -> supplied adsl cable.

      Hve not got a corded phone, but line does not seem noisy.

      Just thought..... I know that (apart from signal) it is advised to stand router upright to aid cooling, but since disabling wireless (and perhaps, then, less heat) I laid router horizontal. This was because, the router was physically safer, espescially with a couple of ethernet cables hanging from it. I think it was flat when I enabled wireless (daughter in same room as router, so signal not a consideration and did not think to upright router). I have though set it back upright overnight (and as I say, no disconnects) and will leave it so.

      Right I'm off to eat a nice big spamwich under my bed. (I do not eat spamalot)

      Re: Is 2304n wireless (still) an issue?

      From a safety perspective, a corded telephone should be connected to your telephone line. Should you experience a power cut, it would serve as an emergency contact point.

      If you could borrow a corded phone it would be useful. Cordless phones tend to suppress or introduce noise so can't be relied upon for the testing.

      In the past it has been proved to be better to stand the Sky routers on their ends. The Sagem 2304n is no exception. Annoyingly it does not have any wall mounting fittings, so it will need to stand. I actually used blue tac to keep mine from falling over and am doing the same with the Netgear I bought a little while ago.

      Keep an eye on the router's stats page. It isn't unheard of for a line fault to cause disconnections, hence the quiet line test.

      Sometimes picking up a handset can cause an ADSL connection to drop. It may be worth watching for this too.

      With regards to using the test socket as a normal process, I personally do not recommend this. Personally I would suggest that you invest in a filtered faceplate. These are much better that the microfilters supplied by Sky.

      I would prefer a corded phone - but I'm an out-voted old fuddy-duddy

      The phone gets used infrequently (apart from calling Sky, that is ), and was not used last night.

      I have ordered a filtered faceplate - would have liked to have done so much earlier because, even though not that expensive, been a bit short lately. Bit of a nuisance really, as will have to disturb things toward the end of DLM period, I guess, by the time the faceplate arrives. Oh well.

      Btw, Maplin are outrageously expensive for most things. A faceplate from them is nearly 18. I ordered mine from one of the links provided here by Newsreader.


      Thanks again.

      There is no harm in having both. Most modern phones allow you to turn the ringer off. Some even cost less than 10. I have a corded phone connected, but tend to use a pair of DECT phones all the time.

      In the mean time, is there a friend that you could borrow one from, just so you can check the line?

      hmmm... I still am of the opinion that you have a line fault. IMHO if you can identify the problem, it makes things considerably easier when you contact your line provider.

      We all have times when we are short of cash. With the current climate more people are finding themselves in this situation.

      I was aware that Maplin charges 18 for their filtered faceplates and as you have found, many other suppliers charge much less. A quick survey shows that at the moment you can get one for between 5 and 19.

      Typically DLM does do a good job, but once it has completed, should the figures not reflect what you line is capable of, then it is possible to contact Sky to tweak it for you.

      Re: Is 2304n wireless (still) an issue?

      Well, it's been just about 40hrs since that string of disconnects and have had no further disconnects. (EDIT: should have said no further disconnects in that 40 hrs having turned wireless off again)

      Perhaps an issue (drops because of wireless security was it?), has been sorted via firmware. But there is a question-mark relating to overheating (exacerbated if router not used in its stand).

      Pretty poor really: fundamentals.

      Firmware is one thing, but design and quality......

      If I have to stick with the router I shall take steps to improve airflow.
