This post is about the Thomson TG585 v8 router supplied by Telecom.
I've looked long and hard for a way in which to fix the issues I'm having with this awful router, and have just about given up.
Connections between computers on a local network are intermittent and slow. I do not understand why I can see someone's shared files one moment, and not the next. Similarly, I can ping other computers (with static IPs set up) on my network and get responses sometimes, but not at other times.
I am not inexperienced when it comes to networking, but I'm at my wit's end in this case!
Is anyone else having these problems? Do you think they would warrant a router replacement from Telecom?
My only solution thus far has been to save up to buy a WRT54GL and finally put my issues to rest.
