I have Simens Sl2-141 router, purchased from Bezeq (the biggest ISP in Israel).
once in a few days he shuts down, and dosent work untill i turn it off and on again.
i checked in the device manager- everything is fine, and he is not desgined to turn off to safe electricity.
no error messages appear.
emule is running all the time.
Well, actually the problem was that the ADSL modem part was probably defective. I've recovered my old Alcatel SpeedTouch Home (set to PRO mode) and configured my Siemens to do just Hotspot (not even DHCP), problem solved - No more disconnections or "hangs" in the device.
Of course, the Alcatel model doesn't support ADSL 2.x, but for me it's enough 'cause I only have 1.5MBps.
It stands to say that all those guys warning you to not get a "all-in-one" device are probably right...
Youre E-mule is running koz your DHCP on the router is still running. The problem is the connection whit Bezeq whitch is prity bad. Get in to the router setup and use automatic setings for connection tipe.That mean that the router can tell the modem to establish connection by himself evritime when is crash. Or just tell them that you need Aztech 600e whitch is the best from Bezeq now.

modems are not routers. Routers can port forward. You need your WAN to face your ISP, and your LAN will need to face your router. Once you have your router talking to your ISP you can set it up to hand out interal network services, but I doubt SOHO routers will do port forwarding. Routers, however, can do port translation like passing gaming traffic over port 80 (web). You can do that in the security tab on your linksys.
Open an internet browser, in the address area type in 192.168.0.1 (this is the normal address used by the router). Once the router access screen appears try usinfg the factory default login USER = ADMIN, PASSWORD = MOTOROLA.
If this does not work you can try using the reset button on the rear of the router to reset it's setting to factory default settings and try the above method again.
NOTE: If you are unsure about anything you can also try asking your ISP how to access the router settings. (If you received the router from an ISP). Otherwise use the manual at this internet location for more information. http://www.midcocomm.com/_files/files/SBG6580.pdf
1- Disconnect the power at the back of the modem. 2- Disconnect the internet cable at the back of the modem (the cable from the wall to the modem). 3- Wait at least 2 minutes. 4- Connect the internet cable back. 5- Connect the power cable back. 6- The lights on the front of the modem should start turning on one at a time; the top one first, the second one next...
If the on-line light still blinks, you might want to repeat the steps above after shutting down your computer. Turn on your computer if the on line light is OK (not blinking).
If all fails, call your internet service provider (ISP) to see if the service itself is down for maintenance, or if there is a problem with high-speed internet in your area.
If you have a router, you might want to power it off before trying the steps above. Turn it back on when the on line light is OK.
Usually, I call my neighbor who has the same ISP to see if their internet is down, before I call the ISP company.
You gamers drive me nuts. XBOX can usually guide you through but their techs bail on you pretty fast and blame the ISP. If you are going directly from the modem to your xbox you have to reset the modem after you plug in the ethernet cable. Modems hate an unplugged or moved ethernet cable and stop talking if you mess with it. Most gamers don't set up the xbox correctly from the beginning. Comcast is the easiest ISP to set up for. They use a DHCP (dynamic) IP not a static. That is the biggest setup mistake. No DNS server, everything set to automatic. Hope this helps. Get a job and take care of that crying child we hear in the background. The game will wait.
you need to re-enter the username and password for the broadband connection. Log in to the router and go through the connection wizard, but you MUST have the name and password that you were given by the provider.
Make sure the modem is configured properly so it would detect the router. Most of the time, modems now has DCHP capability, meaning it has the ability to hold the username and password you ISP has provided you. The most effective way of making modems work with routers is to bridge the modem first before connecting the router.
Bridging the modem is done by opening the interface of the modem. To pull up the interface of the modem, type the default gateway of the modem in the address bar of your browser(intenet explorer)
Look for the "connection configuration" button and choose "bridge ethernet" as the connection type.
Once the modem is bridged, connect the router to the modem, then configure the router to set the connection type to pppoe. Once done, type your username and pw your ISP have provided the save the settings. This should cpnnect you online..
type htttp://192.168.1.1 in your browser.
you will be asked for a username and password
enter the default given to you by your router people.
or go thro the manual for the username and pass
once on the configuration page, you should config your router as specified by your ISP.
save the configuration.
that is all you are connected to the internet, Vista will configure your lan by itself, otherwise go to network setting in control panel, and ask vista to diag the network it will configure your network setting automatically.
So you have a wireless router powering itself off at random intervals?
Change the power adapter if you have an extra. (Just for grins. You never know.)
I would also look into new firmware revisions for your router's model on 3com's site. There could be packet blockage or any other random number of issues that are causing the router to reboot itself. (There are plenty of routers out there designed to reboot themselves if they detect certain issues.)
If the issues persist... Try running the router on it's stock settings for a few days to see if it continues. If it runs ok with stock settings, then perhaps there is a certain function or feature you are using that the router is not handling too well.
There have also been certain routers that have been identified as having certain issues with either the hardware your ISP gives you or the settings your ISP is using for your connection. A sudden change in the way your ISP is doing things could suddenly mean issues for your connection if you're using a router that doesn't like it.
Example: I was once using COX cable internet in Omaha a couple of years back... Being that Nebraska is notorious for it's fandom when it comes to the Huskers... Cox decided it would be a great idea to use multi-cast packet broadcasting to transmit the game over the internet.
BAD IDEA. Anyone in that service area who had a Linksys BEFSR41 router could not maintain connectivity for more than 10 minutes without a reboot.
I later found out from a good tech friend of mine who worked for COX at the time that the issue was definitely widespread and the effects were immediate and lasted throughout the course of the entire game! (Man I was NOT happy!)
According to him, the problem was the method they were using to send out the multi-cast packets. They had set the frame sizes too high.
Ahem.... Anyway... You get the idea.
But check into updating your router's firmware anyway. That's always a good place to start. :)
