Re: [Networking/Sharing] F5D7630-4A connection to router keeps d Hi, I've just come upon this forum. I have the same router/modem, and I am having the same problem. Being new to networking and routers, I didn't know whether it was just me being a total numpty. My connection is not consistent; yesterday it stayed online for over nine hours, but today it dropped to once every 5 minutes. It's not the internet connection; it was resetting when I was trying to copy a file from one computer to the other.
I've tried all the fixes as above (loading the latest firmware, setting the timeout to zero, etc), but it seems to have no effect. The thing is only a week old, so if I can't find a fix it's going back to Dabs, but I rather not have the hassle of the post. If anybody has any bright ideas, I'm all ears.
Use this firmware, from SMC Barricade 7804WBRA:
last version is 0.71, more stable than firm from belkin.
When you load the SMC firm , the login password will be:
at 192.168.2.1/255.255.255.0, wireless SSID = SMC, tx channel = 11 , WEP/WPA = off.
Anyone know any more about this? I'm reluctant to download and install an unknown firmware.
symply dont work ... I think with my version of firmware Belkin checks the firmware brand

I have updated to this SMC firmware and now have got no wireless at all. Plus I cannt flash back to the Belkin firmware. All I get is an error message something like wrong image or similar. Any help will be appreciated. Might just go back to my separate Netgear kit
