need to restart router every few hours, every morning.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Good day,

I bought a D-link Dir-601 2 days ago and I was wondering if my friends here had some insight in what might be wrong with it.
I have also contacted D-link support, but I think this forum is faster than them.

When I turn on my computer, I get the orange triangle in the bottomn right corner and I can not connect to the router through the browser, not by its IP or hostname.

I then unplug and plug back in the power to the router and after it has started up I have internet for quite a few hours, untill it by itself stops functioning again.

I have it set up with a static IP, I have enabled Access Point mode (as I use it as a wireless switch)

The A, B & C net's are the same on the device and my computer, the D net is different (ip address)

I attempted to update the firmware, but it gave me an error and would not update.

It was the last one the store had, so dont want to return it if it is just a setting that is wrong.

Thanks

Have you tried resetting it to factory defaults?

Shoddy firmware might be a problem. The companies usually get it right after a couple updates. Try dd-wrt, my dir 601 is supported.

Yes, then it turns into a router again and I have to set it up the way I want it all over.


Edit: I got an answer from D-link one hour after sending the email biggrin.gif , Impressed.

They told me to connect the ethernet cable that comes from the other router/switch into the LAN port (so not the WAN port).

Its a few minutes since I did it now, so I will report back with my findings smile.gif

Yeah, the WAN port will just give you an icky double NAT scenario. It should have still worked for basic browsing though.

Also, you may need more of a diagram. I'm not sure how you have ABC and D 'networks' with one having a different subnet while using the same unmanaged, flat network (ie, no VLANS or broadcast domain segregation).

According to the router settings, setting it to Access Point mode disables NAT.

I noticed there was a Router IP(wan) and a LAN IP. I was talking about the LAN IP, and since I firstly had it plugged into the WAN port it would fiddle sometimes because the C net was different. if I set the router IP to the same C net, it would not save because of a subnet error.

at this time: Router (x.x.x.1), DIR-601(x.x.x.2) my computer(x.x.x.3)

Edit:
I might have misinterpreted A B C & D nets. what I ment with "The A, B & C net's are the same on the device and my computer, the D net is different (ip address)" was that the first 3 "row's" of numbers in the ip address was the same on all devices, and the last "row" was different.
