    Default Router Bad?

    This just started happening recently. I been losing internet connection alot.The modem says i have it. The only way i can get the internet back is if i unplug router, which makes the internet go back instantly. Does the router need replacement?

    I was having this problem a lot recently. It turns out that constantly streaming data through the router (such as torrenting) causes it to mess up.

    When I've been torrenting for a few days, the internet gets really slow, even after I stop.

    I actually set it to alternate hours for when it seeds/downloads, hopefully this solves the router crashing and slow internet problems.

    If you are using wifi on your router, try changing the channel that the wifi is broadcasting on. I've had similar issues when channel conflicts were present.

    The connection will go out while none of the computers are on also(so it wouldn't be streaming data)
    My PC is direct connect.
    And the weird thing is that the PC says i have internet but I really doesn't.

    It happen today, got home from school, PC says i have internet , but not connecting, i went upstairs unpluged the Router then plugged it back in, i got internet back.

    how would i do this? go into router settings?

    If it's a wifi router, then in the settings on the router (through the web interface, where you do all settings) look for wireless settings. There's something there called CHANNEL which is the frequency range it broadcasts on. Most are set to 6 by default, so try bumping it up or down to another channel. There's no benefit to running it on one channel or another (no speed gains), but it's good to try, since too much stuff on one channel can cause issues.

    I had a friend that tried setting up his wifi by himself then called me when he was only getting sparatic connections. Went in, changed the channel cause 4 other networks in the building were using the same one and he hasn't had trouble since. But you said you were direct connected so changing the channel won't help you there. If you do have wireless check your connection log in the router settings and see if someone has cracked you password and is taking up all you bandwidth.

    Dlink routers are notorious for locking up with too much interference.. a router crash would affect wired clients too. If you arent using the wifi, just disable it. That might solve your stability problem right there.
