problem with my D-link DSL router

Hello,

I have a problem with my D-Link DSL router, every few days it stopped responding, and I feel that's almost hanged, I have to restart the router in order to make it work again.

That didn't happen with me before with my old router Speedtouch 500.

Any ideas ?

hmm!

sounds like a crappy router. ask d-link to replace it.

Heat

your prob is that the router heats up (mainly the processor chip and the ram too) you'll have to remove the cover, and put some fans there.. this is what i do,, it should be working fine in winter anyway ;)

update done

i've made the update, i still didn't test it well i just done it 5 minutes ago.. but what i can see till now is that it's menus stracture became better and it responds a little bit quicker. there are some bugs in the firmware regarding the left panel but it's ok you can ignore it as the same links exists in the main menus... a way to edit the clock time that i really needed, a way to disable the noisy DNS forwarding, it seems nice till now, the connection runs fine too.. i'll tell you my comments after some time of using it

amazing

that new firmware is amazing.. very stable.. since i downloaded it i didn't make a single reboot. it works more than fine and they added lots of useful commands through the telnet. the strange thing that the connection became very fast, i'm supposed to have a 512k dsl shared with 10 users, and when i download with wget i get a download rate of not less than 75k, and i reached 123k in the early morning.. can't understand that
