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?

Re: Router rebooting endlessly, how do I prevent a reset?

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.

Worked fine up till yesterday now wireless wont work

The wireless cards in the computers need to be configured with the router's wireless settings so the computers can connect to the wireless router.
Resetting the wireless router back to the factory defaults will not let the computers connect to the wireless router without configuring the network card in the computers with the router's wireless settings.
I suggest you configure your wireless router with encryption settings to prevent unauthorized persons accessing your wireless network and Internet connection and your computers.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

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

Is this the initial set-up of the network? Sometimes it just needs to be rebooted a few times to connect. The way to reboot the network is to turn off the computers, then unplug the router, next unplug the modem. wait about 30/60 seconds then plug in the power to the modem. Wait for the modem to fully boot. Wait a minute or two, then plug in the power to the router. Wait till it has booted, another minute or two. Once the router is fully booted, then turn on the pc and check to see if it connects. If the computer was previously connected to the modem, before the router was incorporated, it still has the ip address assigned by the modem and has trouble releasing it and getting an ip address from the router.

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 ?.
