I recently switched to a TP Link TD-W8901G ( this http://www.tp-link.com/products/productDetails.asp?pmodel=TD-W8901G )
I'm having problems with it connecting and it randomly disconnecting. My ISP is Telecom NZ and I'm on a 40GB plan. The problem is that the router takes at least 30mins to connect, and only after several resets. Once it is connected it can not be relied upon to remain connected. The problem seems to centre around the DNS connection, but also the Downstream SNR Margin. The router tells me that it is connected, ADSL synchronized, gateway set etc.. and that it has found the preferred DNS. However, the SNR Margin fluctuates between 0 and 13 db and it will flat out not connect, I can't ping the DNS or anything else.
Is this a common problem with Modems Telecom do not supply?
This is becoming quite the frustration.
All help is appreciated.
