Have a Netgear DG632 router. Am finding that at times the router drops out, and can't get a good signal. When this has happened I have dragged out and plugged in my old Speedtouch 330 USB modem and it gets a connection straight away.
It seems to be in the evenings that the problem occurs, which is probably when there is the most demand on the phone network. i am guessing that the signal is slightly too weak/poor quality for the router but the modem can cope.
Has anyone else seen similar, and is there anything I can change on the router so help?
I dont have a wireless link. What seems to happen is when the peak hours for phone/internet use are, the quality of the signal is sometimes not sufficient for the router. It tries, and frequently fails, to re-initialize. If i reconnect my old USB modem it is able to get a suitable signal.
I spoke to Wanadoo about this a while back. One solution mentioned was that I may need to go back to a 512K line - the BT system apparently says my line is marginal for 1Mb.
