Re: ASUS WL-700gE Router Hard Drive Failure so device...

You say you have owned this router for approximately 6months? Can you get a replacement, through ASUS, under warranty? That would be your best bet. If that is not an option, maybe a third party firmware could solve the problem. I prefer DD-WRT for my routers, and it has incredible support. From what I have read, third party software has been used with this router to help spin down the hard drive and to extend its life. I'm not sure if it will resurrect it, but its worth a try. Now, I would like to remind you to go through ASUS first, and only to use DD-WRT or other firmware, not by ASUS, as a last resort. Hope this helps.

Read the internal disk

I don't understand how your router crashing and your files on disk are connected.

The internal disk will not be affected by the router. There will be another reason for this.

Check that your master and slave jumper settings are correct. The main bootable disk should be master, and the secondary disk slave. Ensure that you're using the correct IDE lead (master black, slave grey). Alternatively use CableSelect.

What is the password to acess to the ASUS WL-566gM Router

Default password normally "admin" without the quotes.

If you cant get in, do a hard reset of your router by pressing the small button inside the tiny hole - use a paper clip press gently for 30 seconds.

Thanks for your question

Unable to connect from Internet to WL0799GE

make sure you have a switch that has DHCP. the DSL modems are terrible at this, make sure you have a D-Link  router or similar, go to a computer store and ask an associate
for a Wireless Router

Find the IP address of the drive and make sure you can ping it. to get the IP of the drive, go into your routers settings (usually in your web browser. Log in using guide found in manual. then go to DHCP section and look at the leases shown on the page, the nas drive will have a familiar name, it will be one of the two if you and your pc is connected to the router and nothing else at the moment. Once you have the IP you can reference that like your would from the internet. Not sure if you use VPN but you also need to forward the ports under Port forwarding/triggeing section. Refer to Nas drive manual to find what ports, or google search the drive.

Type "CMD" into the field no quotes
from there type for example:

Fast Page Loads Slow Downloads

it really depends on how far you are from your Router. The farther you go, the weaker the signal gets resulting in slower speeds. Slower speeds will not affect web page load times (they are tiny parts of data) but will definately affect download speeds. You need to be as close to the router as possible or get perfect range. You can put the router at higher elevation in the room to get a better range to start with. Let me know if this works for you.

Slow downloading

Hi, DL managers usually split the file into many pieces, but the DL manager tries to grab many pieces at once and often there haven't been enough Ports opened to allow for this so check that also. Sometimesya ISP don't like torrents anyway and restrict that those ports into and out of ya conection..
