DIR-842 keep on resetting
« on: July 06, 2020, 09:42:37 PM »

Hi,

my DIR-842 router WI-FI is resetting several times per hour. When my connection is lost i'm not able to access nkrouter.local page.

Router is brand new and my location is Manila, Philippines.

Please advise.

Thank you

And i went thru the all the steps to try to identify the problem within my home setup.

While modem is always on and not loosing connection, D-LINK will restart several times a day. I use Global Protect VPN - working from home. But i have noticed that even without VPN my D-LINK is restarting.

What mode is the modem working in? Router or bridge mode?

  • For DSL/PPPoE connections on the router, ensure that "Always ON" option is enabled.
  • If the ISP modem has a built in router, it's best to bridge the modem. Having 2 routers on the same line can cause connection problems: Link>Double NAT and How NAT Works. Call the ISP and ask to see if the ISP modem can be bridged. To tell if the modem is bridged or not, look at the routers web page, Status/Device Info/Wan Section, if there is a 192.168.0.# address in the WAN IP address field, then the modem is not bridged. If the modem can't be bridged then see if the modem has a DMZ option and input the IP address the router gets from the modem and put that into the modems DMZ. Disable ALL WiFi radios on the modem. Also check the routers DHCP IP address maybe conflicting with the ISP modems IP address of 192.168.0.1. Check to see if this is the same on the ISP modem, and if modem can't be bridged, change the DIR router to 192.168.1.1 or .0.254.
