The DCHP Server is assigning the same IP address to 2 devices therefore I cannot connect to the internet with either one.
After the router has been on for a while I keep getting a connection error with one of my wireless devices although I can connect ok using all of my wireless devices. I can't understand the error because the router indicates the wireless devices are connected to it. and the signal strength is 100%
Yesterday I had the situation where I could not connect to the Internet using either any wireless or wired device then after shutting down the router overnight I was able to connect this morning using any device. Everything was okay up until an hour ago the once again I could not connect using a wireless device which is still the case as I write. As of now the wired devices are working okay but I sit here wondering when they are going to go out.
Any recommendations as to where the problem is or do you think the router is on it's last leg. I bought and installed this router on 12/6/2007 which is 3 1/2 years ago.
Setup Reserved (Static) IP addresses on the router for your devices.
Ensure DNS IP addresses are being filled in under Setup/Internet/Manual.
Ensure Advanced DNS Service is disabled if you have this option.
Ensure DNS Relay is enabled.
Set Firewall NAT to Endpoint Independent for both TCP and UDP.
What wireless modes are you running? Mixed? Single?
Try single mode G to test, then try mixed G and N.
Any cordless phones in the house?
