Hi,

I just wondered if anyone has had this problem before. My Netgear DG834 router keeps rebooting for no reason. I have updated the firmware to the latest version and re-updated it again just to make sure. Also, I've checked all cables. Anyone come across this before or have an ideas?

Thanks,
Dan

I'd hazard a guess that it's probably defective. It sure shouldn't reboot itself constantly. :)

(I was afraid of that).

It's just a remember my friend saying his did the same thing. I think I'll probably go Linksys if I get another one, they seem pretty solid (being made by Cisco).

While Cisco bought Linksys, they're not maing Cisco routers there. :)

I didn't realise :) But still, I doubt Cisco would put their name on the box of a bad networking product :)

Strange thing I have noticed...the other day there was a really bad thunder storm, and I'm not kidding, everytime there was thunder, the router dropped the connection and/or rebooted. Anyone ever known this happen before?

(I checked the roof, and the house wasn't hit :) )
