Weird HTTP problem with WAG54G

    This is a strange one. I have a WAG54G that has been behaving fine for about 6 months. Then all of a sudden I'm getting disconnected from the internet, this mostly happens on the wireless client, but also on the two wired PCs.

    I now mostly use the wireless client (laptop) in a different room and this problem has coincidentally (?) coincided with me moving rooms. Sometimes the wireless connection drops completely, but more often it is just the internet connection drops - but its not all of the internet connection, seems to be just http and https.

    For example I will try to connect to a website using Firefox and the connection will be refused but I can still continue playing internet poker!

    As I said this is mostly on the laptop but it sometimes happens on the wired machines. I can usually re-establish the connection by going to the router setup page, this doesn't always work, so I have to restart the router. This happens about every two hours or so (on average).

    Firmware Version: 1.01.6

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Interesting.... I have a problem where I can do HTTP etc. after 7pm each night except weekends? I'm suspecting a bug in access restrictions .... using 1.02.07

    OK.... I've fixed my problem of disconnects and ianbility to access HTTP, whilst still being able to PING.

    Turns out that as I was upgraded to 1mb, about a week or two later I upgraded to another ISP and stayed at 1mb, (even though I'd ordered 512) and 1mb needs a better quality line. 2mb requires a much beteer quality line.

    It's all to do with the signal to noise ratio (SNR if you have a modem which measures/reports that).

    The way I've currently fixed my problem (which is an in-house wiring problem!) is to plug my ADSL filter directly into the internal socket in the master socket. That has eliminated all the wiring in my house and magically the service has been perfect since.
