I am trying to find out if I have an intermittent fault with either my G604T Router or my BT Broadband.
I have two PC`s on Ethernet LAN and two Wireless.
The problem seems to have appeared since BT increased my connection from 2MB - 8MB (Actualy about 6-7MB), but is intermittent. Around this time I also downloaded and installed BTYahoo Norton Internet Security package, at first I had a little trouble getting my three PC Network to work but have overcome this now.
The real problem is that occasionally my Internet drops out, the ADSL light on the router starts to flash and goes off then starts to try and connect again. Sometimes the connection is up and sometimes its down, usually goes down in the morning E.G. its been on all night up to now.
I moved the router to the main BT socket and have experienced the same problems, sometimes up then somteimes down, usually goes down in the morning, its been on all night and working fine.
In order to diagnose the fault I have re-setup my BT 105 Modem on my Laptop and have it poised for the next time the router goes down then I'll switch to the BT 105 to see if I get a connection.
For more help what should the setting be on the router the manual is a little vague PPPoA or PPPoE ??
Can the router and the BT105 share the same line E.G. both on at the same time this would help diagnose the culprit?
When I look at the Log the date is always 01 January???
When I checked the Status the other day it actually said the connection was up but I still had not Internet???
Before I ship the D Link ack to D Link I`d like to be sure it is failing!!! I have at least a years trouble free Internet, contrary to other reports.
Pleas Help Ta!!!!!
