Belkin router/talktalk connection problems

  aw6334 15:37 09 Jan 2008

I am having an intermittent connection problem. Most times it connects to broadband with no problem, but then for no reason, it stops working. If I cut the power to the modem for 10 seconds, switch back on again, it then connects and is fine - for a while - it may work for 10 minutes or 10 hours before losing the connection again.

It seems to be getting more and more common - I am having to 'flick the switch' about 10 times a day now.

I am wary of phoning Belkin, who will blame TalkTalk, and phoning TalkTalk, who will blame the router.

Any ideas whose fault it may be, and what I can do about it?

About a year ago I had a similar problem with my Belkin router/modem. My broadband provider is Wanadoo/Orange. I got Wanadoo to "test" the line for me, some sort of fault was found and reported to BT. After this, very few problems other than occasionally having to go into the Belkin router homepage and re-setting "connect".

i use talktalk with a Belkin router and I have to say i have had little trouble. one thing I did when I received my router was to check the Belkin router website and downloaded the latest flash update for my router. Make sure you download the correct driver as you can appreciate there are a number of different drivers available.
