Just finished a cat 6 home rewire and this router feeds 18 ports through a managed switch and patch panel. It's dropping at least once or twice every odd day.
Seems to come back online after a switch off and switch on and back to business as usual.
Also noticed it's getting hot on top so have flicked a desk fan to blow on it. That appears to have stopped the dropping out as long as the fan keeps the unit cool.
Obvious reasons for failure - swamping it with too many requests - torrenting, gaming, streaming and casual browsing most likely happening at similar times ?
Unit starting to fail after 4 years of life?
New Cat 6 wiring ( hope not ) ? Could this be an issue i.e have I wired something up incorrectly?
or all of the above.?
Thoughts appreciated as to likely reason.
I'm loathed to replace as about to get fibre installed in next 4 to 5 weeks so am keen to mummy it along until we get the new kit.
