Question about NetGear WGT624 Wireless Router

Router rebooting endlessly, how do I prevent a reset?

My PC (linux) connected to the router fine the first few times but never internet. I've reset the modem many times while trying to get the config correct. I haven't upgraded it (it's v3) but now I can't keep it from rebooting/crashing every few seconds.

DSL on, plug in router, flashes internet light.
Plug ethernet to PC, "1" lights on, PC establishes connection, reset.

All of the lights 1-4 light up and then all lights turn off (including power usually) then it's back 'up' but crashes momentarily.

I can't access the config page or anything since it resets endlessly. How do I fix this?

    I've figured out the problem is overheating in the unit. I've left it next to a fan and no problem. I still can not get online and I think it's unrelated. Thanks for the help

Your router is not synchronized with the line. You should power cycle your router (i.e)disconnect power cable from the router waith for 30 seconds and then reconnect, check if the dsl cable is connected properly to the router, if yes remove it once and the reconnect it, this should fix the problem. upgrade the latest firmware version for your router .Are there any electrical devices near the router that are only switched on at that time of day and then switched off again in the morning. What i'm thinking is that you are experiencing REI or Repetitive Electronic Interference. This is caused by EMP emmisions form devices nearby. Have you had anything fitted recently that may be hardwired into you master socket, this will bypass your filter and cause interference on the line. The only other thing I can think of is that there maybe some engineering works going on at the exchange or on the line.

sounds like you recently upgraded your Pc or software, maybe even just a driver update? If so it will help figure out your problem.
Always try to reboot your network(router,modem,pc,laptop)for at least 30 sec, usually its a communication error or a firewall issue that blocks router access, and then again it could be a driver or software compatibility problem. email me with more info if you still need help

Problem for D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router, Orange Power Light

I have had multiple problems with these routers. They tend to drop signals or have other issues that are hard to explain in a few short sentences.
After you rebooted did you open your browser and type in the IP address to connect to the router software?

can you be more specific?

Sympatico & DLink DI-704P

It usually is simple, and hopefully the answer is as well. If you haven?t already done so unplug the modem and the router. Wait for a few seconds and then plug the modem in followed by the router. Reboot your PC and try the Internet again. If it still doesn?t work then I would try doing a hard reset of your router and reconfigure using the setup process outlined by the manufacturer. If that still doesn?t work let us know and we?ll continue ?.
