Why do I have to reset the Router now and again? as if I do not although I can get a good Download Speed I cannot get web Pages to load. Its okay after reseting router using the button at the back, not restoring Default settings. Just turning power off by pulling the plug does not reset Router.

PS I have only just started wit this problem in about last two months I turn the Router off at night by turning power of for all of Computer Hardware

Do you switch your router off at night?

Turning off at night could be the root of your problem. I never turn my Router off at night - never have any problems.

PS - I do turn off all my other computer hardware each night.

Problem is I have that many adapters plugged in. for such things as shredder, phone, and lots of other things. its okay after resetting it. it just happens now and again. can last two weeks etc

As well as the desktop PC and Router, I have 2x external hard drives, 2x sets of speakers, LCD DTV/PC Monitor, Printer, 2x VHS Video recorder, Video Processor/Audio Mixer, Scanner, DVD Player/Recorder, Audio Hifi and TV with set-top box, ALL inter-connected with the PC.

I switch everything off at night, except the Router!

I believe your router would work better (and possibly faster) if it was on its own separate Power, which you could leave on 24/7.

PS - I forgot to mention, also have a normal land-line phone and a BT Talk Internet phone connected among that lot!
