As the title says i'm using a dlink 504G modem. I have had it for over 4 years but the last few months it has become extremely unstable. I play computer games a lot where i can't have my net disconnecting. I'm wondering if this is caused due to age or not being able to handle the new speeds of broadband.

ALso.. on mondays (only mondays!) it disconnects when certain numbers are called and ring.

Any help is appreciated.

Its not related to speed, just some of the components inside getting a bit dodgy. Time to buy another one.




Time to find a new industry!

i've had one for even longer and its still running fine.  I did find that it started really playing up at one point and that disabling the dns-relay/dns-cache feature fixed the problem.  Not sure what caused it to go haywire in the first place but it wasnt a firmware upgrade.

If you don't have a master splitter installed for the DSL line, then check the DSL filters on any normal phone, fax and sky jacks
