Hi,

 

I recently went through the process of going with Slingshot for my preferred ISP because of their cheap rates and unlimited internet and I didn't want to get their default router as I'm a gamer and there's a few others that are in the house so we'd like to have a good ping (while I realize that the default Dynalink router can support multiple gamers online, I chose to get a WAG230N router).

 

Now, all seemed fine ONCE the internet was set up and I had to configure the router to work with Slingshot, that all seemed fine and then I was on the internet. The only problem that I'm having and this would annoy anyone, is the fact that I keep losing an internet connection every hour or so, and it doesn't automatically come back on, I have to turn the router off and back on. There's also a second problem, but I'd prefer it if the first one was fixed first, but the second one is that every now and then, none of the wireless devices can connect to the router, but they can see it, it just says (For my phone): "Invalid password" and for the laptops it just says the generic "Can't connect to this internet", generally I have to change the SSID name and then everyone has to re-connect to it, but I'd prefer a permanent solution.

 

Might I add: I've rung Cisco but I keep getting put into loops and I'd rather not have to ring them again and go through the same [pointless] process. I've also talked to Slingshot and they're gonna see what they can do on Sunday/Monday (I am also waiting for the Dynalink router to see if that fixes the problem). 

 

Thanks, and sorry for the long message.

It could be a problem with your internal household wiring. I finally got around to installing a master splitter today. They're superior to the plug in filters and I think that our internet connection here isn't playing up as much as it used to.

Do you have a master splitter installed?

Sorry, you'll have to explain to me what a master splitter is (I just have the normal filter(phone line/ADSL))

It's just a better one of those and installed at the Telecom termination point allowing a discrete data siginal to the modem without interference from a telephone and it's extended in house wiring.
