Title: DIR-842 2.02 B2 unstable
Post by: chanwei21 on October 02, 2018, 05:34:21 PM
Hi, My DIR-842 firmware versions 2.02 B2.
Problem#1: Causes my wireless devices can't connect to my multiple AP devices on the whole building, like DIR-513A.
                  need to log-in to DIR-842 and reboot the DIR-842 so can get normally access again to wifi from the whole building.

Problem#2: sometimes LAN on PC gets no limited connections can't access to internet, can't even load the log in page of DIR-842.
                  need a manual power off to restart the device to let everything getting well.

so eventually this model of router isn't really stable.
I have two of this router in different location building and cause same problem.


hope D-LINK can implement a reboot schedule so I can reboot it daily automatically.

Router Placement
Forum User - "Well I feel really dumb. After moving the router away from other electronic devices my speeds are back to normal. Just a heads up for anyone experiencing slow speeds, you might want to move it away from other electronics and see if that helps."
3-6' feet minimum safe distance between devices.
Placement on main level floor and central in the building and WELL ventilated is preferred. Not in basements or closets as building materials, or near by electronics devices could interfere or hinder good signal propagation.
