New to Geeks to go so thanks in advance for any assistance.
I recently moved and have a new ISP service provider. They provided me with a Motorola SB5100 Cable Modem (I believe this is an older model). They wanted to charge me to add a wireless router, but I already had one (DLink DI-824VUP), so I said no thanks.
From day one, I periodically lose the signal to my wireless router. Prior to my move, I had used this same wireless router with a Motorola SB5120 (or SB5102, I don't remember exactly) cable modem (from Optimum Online) and never had a problem. While resetting the wireless router (i.e. unplugging the power cable) seems to resolve the problem, it is a pain in the neck because I lose the signal several times a week.
I cannot upgrade the firmware on the router, as DLink has discontinued the product and I have the last version of firmware offered.
If anyone has any ideas on what might be causing either the modem to drop it's signal to the wireless router or visa versa, I'm am appreciative of any/all suggestions.
