VPN & router reset
« on: March 27, 2018, 01:15:22 PM »

I Have a DIR-859 wired to a Lenovo computer w/Vista and providing WiFi to many devices (MacBook Pro, Dell Inspiron, a Dell XPS and a HP laptop etc.)

The HP laptop my wife uses for work over a VPN.  The system works fine until the HP and the XPS are on at the same time, then the router crashes, I say

crash because even the wired computer loses internet.

I can have all but the HP on and no problem or reverse all but the XPS but turn the other on and the router resets?  I was reading an article this

morning on VPNs it suggested that the HP (the computer using the VPN) can send a signal to reset the router?  Is that possible and why only when XPS

is on?

Another said that the home network's IP subnet cannot be the same as the company's network eg. If 192.168.1 is the company's IP subnet, the router should be changed to 192.168.2  Does this make sense? 

Would you know of any articles on any VPN conflict that can shut down the router temporarily,

also Reasons for changing the IP (I had done it to string 2 routers together) 

and How to locate and stop any router reset?

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded? Found on the routers web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
  • What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
  • What ISP Modem Mfr. and model # do you have?

Can you confirm what IP address the laptop gets when on VPN? Is it 192.168.1.#?

You can change the DIR routers IP address pool from .0.1 to .1.1 or 2.0 if you like and re-test to see if this changes anything.
Do you have this router connected to a different router now?

What wireless modes are you using?
What security modes are you using?
Is IPv6 enabled, try setting LOCAL ONLY for this. Disable IPv6 on each PC under networking.

Set a IP address reservation for each device ON the router.
