Websites hang
« on: November 28, 2009, 11:34:20 AM »

I've looked through the forum and I have not seen this specifically mentioned.  I know people have had the router hang (and I had that problem with 132NA).  However, I went ahead and gave the 132b09 a try.

The router isn't hanging anymore but webpages are.  I know it is just webpages because even as a webpage will hang both my torrents and XBOX Live are working just fine.  This happens on both wired and wireless.  I've checked the logs as the webpages hang and I don't see anything.  And I'm not talking about obscure websites...even google is hanging at random.

I guess the question is what can I do to isolate this?  Would a good strategy be to turn off the DNS relay and then renew my IP config?  Or is there a better way...more direct?

Hi,

Try another browser and see if it gives the same result.  IE8 has some issues with some people if you have too many tabs open...

I have seen firefox or Opera work smoother than IE8 depending on the site....

I updated to beta9.  The router has been up for 16days now (re: no restarts).  The first couple days I thought it was perfect, but then I started noticing weird things when just browsing the internet.  It's not the browser I'm using (I have many installed for testing purposes for work) nor is it PC or connection specific.  But it is definitely something with the router.  I can hook my cable modem directly to a pc and share the connection and have zero browsing problems.  I can hook the modem to one of my many firewall distro laptops and have no problems.  I can hook it up to a backup router I have (before I started using spare laptops as firewall distros) and have no problems.  As soon as I hook the dir-655 back up and have it reconnect I have browsing problems again.  Problems I'm experiencing specifically:

websites timing out
pictures not loading
streaming stutters (hulu, metacafe, youtube, etc)

*I haven't tried restarting the router yet as I am trying to see how long it is before the router reboots/resets itself.

I'm getting the same thing, at first I thought it was Firefox but I tried with IE8,Opera,chrome same thing..

Direct connect to modem no problems. Problems are back when Dir-655 is hooked up. I'm using Beta 9.

Well I had something like this and I'm also on this beta. I don't know if it's because of this firmware for sure so I reset my router then flash it again with 1.32b09. This time I setup everything by hand. Seems to be fine for now. I don't remember having this for the first few days running this firmware version and it might only happen after I change this and that settings inside its web interface, will update later.

Try this:

Go to the advanced tab, under QOS setup, uncheck "Dynamic Fragmentation."

This fixed some streaming problems I was having.

you can turn off several features, but Dlink has to fix it. Dlink how far are you with fixing these things?

If it's caused by Dynamic fragementing it's something Dlink cannot fix. Some settings just influence your connection and that's also influenced by your network topology. Which can differ individually, thus the ooption to turn off some options. Did you try disabling Dynamic fragmentation and/or removing all QoS and priority settings? I can have router delay all http data just by configuring QoS...so these (user configurable) settings can cause your symptoms too... And since you don't mention any details on your config....

My wireless signal is still the same as with 1.11. 1.21 is considered to be a firmware with many quirks. And if you have a real good look at the forum the number of issues mentioned are becoming less and less.

Bottom line is that if your user settings are incorrect, that's something Dlink cannot fix. But I qwas also hinting towards providing more info, as a network/system engineer you should know that if you really want some help you really need to provide more data.

Did you do a clean install/manual config or are you loading the saved config file? It is strongly advised to do a manual config.

PS: beta software/firmware is ****e to have some inregularities. So it is by nature not a finshed product.

Dlink does not say (although they do admit this is a wiase thing to do), but if you had read one of the manyy posts about firmware issues you would have noticed that a completely new manual setup solves many, many issues after flashing.

But if you want to keep up reloading saved configs and don't want to take some advice: be my guest, but stop whining.

Push and hold in the reset on the back of the unit until all the light flash.
Go into the router and manually enter your setup.
