Router help

I keep having to reset (turn off and on) my router every half hour or so as it says that the Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage. After doing this it is fine but it is getting rather annoying to keep on doing.

Has anyone got any solutions please?

Thanks

    routers that you get from your isp are **** they always go after a while, mines the same. Ring um up and demand a new one they give them out like sweets as it is - i had 3 at one point.

    Linksys is the way, IMO.

    Netgear and Linksys are both fine, actually. No problems with either. Dynamode make some good kit. In fact most of it's pretty much a muchness these days.

    One thing you could try is replacing the micro-filters (perhaps borrow one from a friend to test?) because they cause a lot of problems like this when they fail. I'm talking about the small box that "splits" the broadband and telephone signals, usually plugged into a telephone socket.

    These small "consumer" broadband routers seem to have a service life of only a year or two, for some reason.

    Please don't take what I say too literally. I'm a clown, when it's all said and done. Sometimes I say things with my tongue in my cheek to make people laugh, but please rest assured I am not laughing at *you*!

    I'm using a Dlink router and I've only had to reboot it once in 12 months.
