All been going well for 3 years. Had to reset it about twice in all that time. Over last week+, its resetting around 5 to 10 times a day. Dont know if its the modem or all the new devices I connected to it since xmas - new desktop, 3 ipods, old desktop now on wireless etc..


Everything works fine then for no reason - internet stops working. LAN lights, instead of flickering all adopt a synchronised 2 flashes(ish) every second pattern. Cant login to router either during this episode.  After around 2 mins, PWR light goes red, DSL and PPP go off, PWR light goes green and everything lights up again. Can now also login to router if required.  Internet restored. I can speed this up by powering down then on again.


Have tried different LAN ports on it but same issue. Also started running a log and see some of the following errors that may or may not mean something. I've only managed to figure out it can record errors so nothing recorded around hang time - the stuff below is whilst its working.



Few Intrusion errors
Good few of these - kernel: MASQUERADE: No route: Rusty's brain broke!
Some of these - kernel: nat_h323: dir ORIG at hook PREROUTING


and the odd one of - user crit kernel: OAM loopback response not received on VPI/VCI 0/4    

Any help or advice appreciated. been chatting in another forum and will also try cooling it. At first glance, and best guess, is it the router getting stuffed or something Ive managed to change in setup?

Thanks

Okay..So an update to my post. It just bricked itself again. Looked at the log and pageful of kernel intrusion alerts originating from a couple of IP's in Sweden.  Ran some port checks and apparently i'm completely stealthed on all ports.  Will do a scan of the desktop as well but came back clean yesterday...

I had one that did that a couple of months ago. Toss it in the bin as there's a heat stressed component in there somewhere..

The wireless in the RTA1025W is buggy. For me I also got constant disconnects and restarts, which became more frequent as wifi devices were added. My current solution is an old router in wireless AP mode, and the RTA1025W with the wireless disabled, and get around 30 days of uptime now

Check you are up to 3.64y firmware also (fixes some newer adsl gear and adds 2nd wireless SSID capability)

Mines been going strong for around 4-5 years now. But I do have it free sitting on one end also, and well ventilated :)
