I've been having a problem with my D-link router (obviously the DIR-615
) and my Scientific Atlanta modem (model 2203), and i am currently subscribed with Time Warner Cable.
Basically what seems to happen, is when the internet is in use (through wifi through the router) and even sometimes when the internet is NOT being used, the internet will disconnect from my router.
Sometimes I will be able to load a page and it will not load, then i try again two seconds later and it'll wake back up -- but more often i am required to reboot the router, or sometimes i will just unplug my router AND modem, and after they boot up, my laptop (that i always use) will connect fine (until the internet disconnects from the router again).
i am able to still be connected to the router, but i wont be able to access the internet.
I thought i fixed this before, by restricting my router's speeds to 10mb/s, (originally it was set at AUTO10/100mb/s, so i made it so it only accepts 10mb/s of data), but a week after having this method done, it went back to the internet disconnecting randomly from my router.
(i did this under Advanced -> Advanced Network Settings -> Wan Port Speed)
believe me, i am pretty good at this stuff (under most cases
) but this is one thing i just cannot figure out.
seeing from past threads, i am happy to get teamviewer and show you all my router's webpage if needed (192.168.0.1)
thanks a lot for reading!
