Sar110 Dropping Connection


Sar110 Dropping Connection

Hello there

For the past month my Sar110 (Solwise SAR110 s/w version VIK-1.38.030917a) has been dropping its external connection. Meaning I have to reboot it every 5 to 10 minutes when its bad. Even when it is connected I'm experiencing realy bad Packet Loss.

I've had it tested out and it all comes back to "our tests show no fault on your line itself. We do however show a high response time to data sent to your connection at your point of connection. This could a faulty device/filtering/wiring etc."

I've rewired and tried new splitters etc and upgraded the firmware twice, but its all lights on but no bodys home Sad

Can anybody think of anything else I can try before chucking it in favour or either a D-Link DSL-504 or SpeedTouch 510

Have you attempted following the troubleshooting tutorial located in the Tutorial and FAQ forum?

With it only starting 1 month ago, it could be a possible hardware, line or exchange issue.

Follow the tutorial to rule out anything on your own side.

Has there been any change in the SNR margins and line attentuation reported by the router.
What are the figures.

Cheers for the responses.

I did the tutorial thing before posting and ain't got a clue about what the second posts on about? Well not how to check it anyway.

The problem seems to be with the firmware which some how keeps corrupting. If I make a change to the default connection settings it throws a wobbler!

It has on a couple of occassions reset itself back to default? Also if I make a change it randomly changes other settings as it wishes?

I've had a couple of internal error messages when trying to make changes and looking back I used to have to reboot it every now and again as it would not let any of my PC's at random connect to it.

Just reapplied the firmware for the 18th time in 5 days and it hasn't dropped out yet (16 hours new record).

So I think a new router is on the cards!

Have you posted your problems on the Slwise forums?

It may be wise. Some of those know ther way around the routers pretty damned good.

Packet loss

have you eliminated everything local, like a dodgy filter/equipment on your phone system?
