    I have a 2wire 2701hg-b router and recently it's been resetting itself about every 10-20 minutes. Everything will be working normally and then I'll hear a click from the router and it will go from all green to just one green back to all green. After the lights come back on the internet resumes working.

    I had to replace the original power supply because it wasn't getting any power at all. The power supply I have been using for the last 6 months or so has either 4.5v or 6v. Since I bought it I've been using it at 4.5v. The thing is, the 2wire 2701hg-b is supposed to use a 5.1v 2a power adapter.

    My question was, is it safe for me to use the 6v setting on the power supply from now on? I've switched it to 6v for the past hour and the router hasn't reset itself once. Let me know what you guys think.

    Thanks in advance

    I'd suggest getting the right power supply for the router, I doubt it's a good idea to run that on 6V!
