    TP Link router

    Hi , Im on virgin 10mb cable . Last 2 weeks been dropping connections
    wireless and wired. Connected a new replacement router (TP Link) . Was
    ok for about 24 hrs then started dropping connections again . I get
    local connectivity only on the wired pc and on the wifi all looks fine
    but you can not find any web . If i connect the modem directly to the pc
    bypassing the router it does give me a stable connection . Have i got 2
    faulty routers or is there another area i need to look at .

    regards

    Steve

    My first impression is another bad router.

    Two routers could be bad but I'd try a couple of things before giving up
    on them.

    1. Replace the cable between the router and the cable modem with another
    one. Cable connectors can be over/under crimped when made and may make
    a connection on one device but not when used on another due to slight
    variations in the female connector. Might even work part time depending
    on vibrations and such.

    2. Try moving the router about 3 feet in any direction and see if things
    stabilize. Would not be the first time I had a router sitting too close
    to or on top of another device that was generating enough interference
    to confuse it.

    3. Along with the above relocation, try plugging the router into an
    outlet that is not on the same circuit breaker or fuse as it presently
    is using. Same kind of problem but looking at possible interference
    feeding into the router via the power connection.
