Windows 7: Router needs resetting all the time

Router needs resetting all the time

Had a Linsky router, but I had to keep resetting it to get on the internet. So I bought a new Netgear router. The same thing happens. I have to unplug it, wait 10 seconds, plug it back in, then I have internet and network. All the lights on the router show that it's connected, but when I go to network sharing the path shown no connection. Trouble shooting only resets the network adapter, but that won't let me on the internet. The only way is to unplug the router then plug it back in. I have a cable modem and two computers connected to the router. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Are you running any P2P (peer-to-peer) software on any of your networked computers, such as BitTorrent clients? While P2P itself isn't harmful, high bandwidth consumption (which P2P software can do if not configured properly) can easily overload and knock out cheaper routers.

Rules out the router? Also all the LEDs on the router indicate no problem with the router. If you are connecting via cable try a different cable, borrow one from a friend or neighbour so you know the cable works.

I'll hook up a new cable from the modem to the router and see if that helps.

When you are disconnected from the internet does the internet LED stay on?

Probably not the cause but check your power plan settings.

Checked all the power settings. I might have been overloading the router. I had two computers scheduled to run back ups daily over the internet at the same time. I re-installed the Linsky router, replaced the cable from the cable modem to the router, and set all the power options. Everything is working fine now. We'll see what happens over night.

Well, everything kept together over night. Don't know if it was the cable or overloading the router, but all is good now. Thanks for all the tips.

If the problem carried over from another router its the cable. Usually it's a problem with the router the LEDs would indicate so. Glad it's working now though

If your problem is solved please use the Mark this thread as solved link at the top of your thread.
