Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
I am using D-link router over one year. In last couple weeks router started shooting down itself. From beginning that happens once or twice a week this time its twice a day. Sometime it's just rebooting. Another time it stays off. It is not getting hot. Otherwise it's working perfectly.
First try a reset in your router settings, by typing 192.168.0.1 in your web browser, and you also may have to try a firmware update, but you need to find the version of your router underneath, so refer to this page and see if you have the current firmware:- http://support.dlink.com/products/revision.asp Please be aware that any firmware upgrades need to be done with the rj45 cable and not wirelessly Otherwise, if it's rebooting it could be the W32.Blaster Worm, many other variations of this worm have been found. Some of them are W32/Lovsan.worm and W32/Nachi.worm. These worms create a lot of ICMP traffic which may overload the router to eventually prevent it from communicating. Whether it´s the CPU or another component of the router that causes the failure, the problem can only be solved through the removal of this virus. There´s a tool provided by McAfee called Stinger. This tool will detect and remove the viruses that cause these problems. Please take a minute to read about this tools and it´s usage. You will need to run this tool on every single computer. the tool can be found here:- http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/
