It's running slow again and slow to respond.  Like I'm on dial up.

How long do you have to let a router stabilize after a firmware flash?  I start configuring right when I have access to the GUI.  Am I doing that too soon?

Edit: I called D-Link tech support and they had me uncheck 'auto scan' under wireless settings, the manually select channel 11 and then enable auto scan again and reboot.  She said monitor it and try this next time for channel 1 if I still get dropped wireless connections and then again for channel 6....which is what I started on.

Update: I haven't noticed any issues but I was gone all day yesterday for a work seminar.  My wife said that it dropped signal for a while then came back up so I'll monitor it still.

This is with the manual channel set?
If this continues, I would call back DLink and get another. Ask for a new one LOL. Sorry your having so much problems.  :(

Yes, sort of.  I think that there might be a glitch with these and that's why she had me change the channel.

It was pretty simple, she had me un-check the Enable Auto Channel Scan box, set my channel to 11 then check the Enable Auto Channel Scan again and I think reboot.  No problems today so far, so maybe what my wife experienced was something on the cable side.  ???

They do still have a case opened for me so if it happens again I will request a new one.

Update: WiFi not dropping but slow internet and eventual loss of connection between router and internet occurs.

I called DLink again and requested a new, not refurbed/used DIR-857.

 ::) I presume that you don't see any WiFi issues on one of your other back up routers do you?

Not on the e4200, the DGL-4500, or Buffalo or Belkin.  I do see it on the DIR-601 though.   :P

Wonder if you just got a bum router. Keep us posted.
You didn't see this on the 1st 857 right?

That's what I think, too.  No, the first router was great, damned Mother Nature and her fireworks!  >:(

OK, got the 2nd refurb in. 

They didn't send me a new one like I asked and this one smells like someone from Mad Men owned it for 15 years with an ash tray sitting on top of it.  I got a nicotine buzz just opening the box.

Up and configured and it came with FW 1.01.  I left it at that for now.

It seems like the last two refurbs I got had Bogota Columbia as the default time zone.  Do any of you remember if that was the default for yours?  I'm wondering if this is normal.

 :o makes me wonder if the air filters were clogged for the refurb section. LOL.

Wow. Smells of smoke huh? Thats crazy.


I wanna say that I think I remember the time zone was set for something odd when I first got the 857. Been too long though. Keep us posted on how it goes.

I would set it up from scratch and not load any config files.  ::)

Wonder if thats what the problem was for the original owner of this particular unit, too much smoke?  ???
