Thanks for that information _b

So... the while on was a temporary fix that somehow worked..

Except it appears my DHCP leases are lasting about an hour (or maybe.. exactly 60 minutes). Every X amount of time my local network goes down for a few seconds - no net access on any device and none can speak to each other.

I have put it back to on - is that the right thing to do? I would like to avoid the 192.x.x.x range if possible for reasons stated above (but obviously not very good reasons, so if it's worth it I'll switch back over).

As for the low lease time, what could that be? Hopefully this'll fix that too.

No disconnects yet.

Other thing that needs a solution is the 4MB/s transfer speed from anywhere to anywhere on the network (generally windows) ..from wired devices (NOT wireless, both are wired always). On gigabit LAN transferring between SSDs. Cat5e cables or better. Isolated both machines running both directly to the router.

How can I troubleshoot this? Google yields no solution that has made any difference.

Happens across different ethernet adaptors since I got a couple lying around I tested.

I'm almost having to download my data TWICE since I download 1 MB/s slower than this transfer speed.

Orcon router did it too.

Tried different methods of transferring such as command prompt, explorer, web server, mapped network drives. No better.

Try plugging the 2 computers into a dedicated gigabit switch. And a 3rd cable between the switch and the router. This will mean that the data won't have to go through the router. Another trick to do, start a big file transfer. and while it is running try to access the routers admin webpage. If trying to browse the admin pages is really slow. Then the file transfer is probably maxing out the routers processor. And use windows task manager to confirm that the computers are not using up all network capacity.
