got a new computer, so got a new router as well back in nov, the router is a buffalo air station wireless G & has worked fine up til last few weeks. seems like the prob started when i switched isp's from cable to dsl from the ph co & now the router has to be rebooted once a day randomly. is there something i need to change in the router setup, i've looked for a timeout or whatnot but didn't see anything in the setup homepage. i have the firewall enabled as well as the intrusion detector & ip spoofing is enabled. with cable, my speed was around 8gb & now it's 12, would that upset the performance of the air station? not a big prob, just annoying. thx in advance :D

  1. Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.
  2. Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
  3. Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

after reading the setup again, discovered adsl connections use pppoe and user name & password needed to be added to router's profile so did that & so far, so good. airstation uses a quick setup & thought that was sufficient, but apparently not. anyway, fixed for now so just an fyi... :D
