Question about D-Link / RangeBooster N 650 / DIR-635 / 300Mbps / 802.11n / 4-Port / Cable/DSL Wireless Router (DIR635)
I just set up a d-link dir-300 router, but it keeps on restarting every few seconds after i have set it up with the setup disk.
It keeps on restarting, so I can't really go inside the router to tweak settings.
Also note that this is the 2nd router of the same model that i had the problem (i had the first one replaced since i thought i was just defective) but since it happened again with the replacement, it think it must be something with my PC or network.
PS: I'm using a wired PC to do the setup
This is the fix from d-link:
Router rebooting itself You may be experiencing trouble with a feature known as UPnP(TM). This feature allows Windows XP and Me machines to remotely open necessary ports for Internet Applications. You may try disabling UPnP (on the router AS WELL AS your computers) to see if this cures your reset woes. Log into the web-based configuration, access the Tools page, then the Misc. button. Choose the disabled button next to UPnP. Click Apply. You should no longer experience the frequent resets.Try disabling in XP first to see if that fixes issue.
To manually disable UPnP/SSDP in Windows 2000/XP/Vista:

Had the same "frequent reboot, no reason" problem after 2 years after I bought it.
What helped a little was a factory reset (button on the back of the router), so I could at least access the web-interface without constantly being thrown out again.
The fix was to upgrade to the latest firmware (from 2.20EU to 2.33EUb01) in my case. Now the thing works like a charm again.
