Time in router menu is wrong

 

Hi,

 

 I logged into my router the otherday and the time is showing a different time to what it should be? I rebooted the router from the main menu and it is still the same time?

My router is a TGN582n is there a firmware update for this router?

How wrong? Just wondering if it is a DST issue or a complete lack of correct time at all. I thought that the router was synced with an NTP server out of the box, or it used to be.

If it is exactly 2 hours wrong then I would suspect time zone issues as it is highly unlikely that it has somehow completely by chance set itself to exactly 2 hours out.

Fix

The time configuration settings on my TG582n is as follows:

Network time synchronisation should be done from ntp.plus.net though for that to work I think the firewall setting for the account might need to be Off or Low.

Re: Time in router menu is wrong

the tick boxes were unticked? even after a reboot of the router they remained unchecked? i ticked both boxes and all seems well!

Thanks guys
