Hi Folks,

I bought a ADSL2 WiFi Router 3Com 106 and while it works normally for some time then the ALARM light in the front panel goes ON and needs hardware reset.

I have returned the router and I got a new one (the same) but still the same problem.

It keeps doing this in any non predictable time intervals and it is very annoying...

Any ideas

Thanks

Hi SuperSam.

Yes it is secured while in wireless mode.
Also I tried disabling wireless but still the problem remains.

Thanx for your time.

Hi SuperSam again.

Regarding hacking, when I am in wireless mode I can receive 7-8 other wireless networks.

Also how can I say if somebody tries to hack my router???? Is there any remedy if this happens?

Thanx again

Does the problem happen if you connect to it with an ethernet cable? or is it only with wireless? maybe check the manufactures site for a firmware update or actually if you just connect to the routers web based config utility via internet explorer you can sometimes check and update firmware through there.
