Hey,

I changed my Belkin 7633-4 the other day, for a Netgear Next DG834N

Since installing, Im experiencing frequent disconnections, really starting to get on my nerves.

Stats from router;


System Up Time 04:47:28
Port Status TxPkts RxPkts Collisions Tx B/s Rx B/s Up Time
WAN PPPoA 100921 131848 0 977 7620 04:46:03
LAN 10M/100M 1243 0 0 11 0 04:47:23
WLAN 11M/54M 135711 104161 0 7797 1088 04:47:19


ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
Connection Speed 8128 kbps 448 kbps
Line Attenuation 23.0 db 11.5 db
Noise Margin 7.3 db 24.0 db


Thats with an ADSL faceplate thing as well, the Belkin didnt drop out.

Other computers in the house also experiencing the same :(

I have Nildram 8mb MAX, but had that for about 4 months now.



Im considering taking the router back, is that whats recommended? Maybe its just too new technology, this whole draft n rated business!

:(

It's probably not very helpful, but my Netgear 834G drops the connection all the time on PlusNet Max.

It's a little better than it was due to a firmware upgrade, but still damn annoying. Have you tried updating the firmware?

The Speedtouch 585 is well regarded, but "only" G wireless.

Any reason you're after N equipment?

Hi mate,
I updated to latest firmware. Thats what I been using.


I just got the 'n' to have the latest stuff lol, I had the Belkin 7633 which worked fine to be fair.

Some people have reported rolling back the firmware to 2.something fixed the drop out issue, it was discussed on here recently (last 10 days ish)

Not all routers are made equal.

I presume this 'disconnections' are ADSL not wireless?

Upgrade firmware, then downgrade firmware then try and switch to ADSL Max then take it back to the shop shouting 'Netgear are read me '.

But that would be a lie - as they aren't.

OP - Sorry, no fix for the problem you've been experiencing.
Just annoys me when people post such statements as "xxxx company are rubbish" when I've taken the time to buy some equipment from that company and find it has performed above and beyond the call of duty.
Netgear DG834GT ADSL Wireless/Router 37 days of uptime and counting.

It seems stable last night, and today so far...


It might be just whenever another computer is connected? Im not sure?


Or maybe because its adsl max, the new router needs to 'learn' the snr db etc first.

OK shout 'This Netgear DG834N is poo' ;) ... Not all Netgear products are lacking, some are infact very good - The DG834 i have sat in front of me has never required a reboot other than by my intervention e.g. an upgrade or moving over to a dedicated UPS. It was the same with the origo based 4 port unit we had before, that went months without so much as a power cycle and behaved faultlessly untill we decided to push the boat out with a few VPN's, at that point it's lack of firmware upgrades and support became an issue.
