We had a Linksys WRT310N for a couple of years, but it bit the dust a couple of months ago. No amount of rebooting would fix it.
So, in a hurry, I bought a new Belkin router. It was awful, needing to reboot several times a day. I tried upgrading firmware, changing all sorts of settings to no avail. It went back and I exchanged it for a Linksys E900.
That seemed to do the trick, no rebooting, reliable performance. Until this week. I've had to reboot it twice in 3 days, I don't see anything odd in the settings, no loose plugs, etc...
Before I get too far into settings and firmware changes, does anyone have any thoughts?
I have Roadrunner service, 2 PC's, 2 laptops, and various devices using the WiFi with various combinations of Windows XP, Vista & 7.
Is it possible I just have had bad luck with two routers in a row?
Okay, so I'm thinking about finally updating my old laptop (Windows ME doesn't really do it for me anymore, y'know?) and I want to cash in on some bargains while the promise - threat? - of Vista brings down the prices on machines currently running XP ......
