Could be a number or reasons.
What kind of internet activity is occurring when these power cycles happen?

this.

are you possibly hammering it with too many connections, say, from a torrent client - fritzboxes are normally pretty strong against this though...

we really need more details than.. its power cycling, and i have replaced it with a new one. - apart from indicating its likely caused by a certain way its being used.

If your using a bittorrent client to download your linux isos then theres where your problem probably lies... you might be overloading the fritz box with too many udp/tcp connections.

Edit: Ah dam Hio beat me to it.

You would be doing pretty well to kill a Fritz with too many connections.

I would guess it is just a simple power issue. Otherwise are you opening some common service ports? Could be a DoS attack taking it down.

oh.

so what your saying, is your simply plugging it in, and its power cycling?


are you sure its actually power cycling? the leds are configurable, and could be not quite indicating what you think.


Try it directly in the wall, the Fritz's are known for having odd issues like high error rates, from powerboards sometimes. - They really like Clean power.. if you have a UPS, ild try it in there too.
