"The Default gateway is not available" - I'm mad! - Page 3

post #21 of 34
The problem is the router. A lot of older consumer routers have very small NAT tables. When the router reaches that NAT table limit, it freezes. Then you have to power cycle the router to reset the NAT table.

Here are the steps you can proceed with:

1) Set lower TCP timeouts in your router (in DD-WRT, default is 3600 seconds, change to 120 seconds)
2) Set lower TCP connections in your torrent client
2) Replace the router with a known high capacity NAT table (you can always turn your old router into a switch or wireless access point)

On routers with small NAT tables, even an unfiltered Steam server refresh can lock up the router.

Well, I do not have to reset the router when it happens, only disable and enable the locak lan connection on the computer, also all other devices connected to the router connects with no problem, also is the d-link DIR-655 already getting old?

I would highly recommend replacing the router with a better one. I would really try and get one that supports DDWRT.

Wow I though the DIR-655 was a good router?

well the biggest problem is that it is a Dlink. But the main reason I say replace it is to get something that can have DDWRT on it.

I know it's not like a Linksys with DDWRT, but really? Is it really not usable?

well I mean sure it is usable, but clearly it can't handle the number of connections you are trying to run. DDWRT is just a better all around firmware for routers, it maximizes the resources that the router has. I would say if you don't want to get a new router, go turn your max connections way down to like 50 or so.

Now when I think about, how is it that I never had this problem with my old rig? I had a lot more connections with uTorrent at that time too...

your old rig might have been limiting the number of connections it can do through its nic. your new rig might have a higher limit on the number of connections your nic and achieve.
