    Has anyone else run into this.. I dont have any wireless cards in my 2
    pcs.. they are both hard wired into the router. I have the g band on
    wireless.. disabled, while I just use the A band for a wireless gaming

    At random times the whole router freezes up.. the lights become stuck
    in the solid mode. The only thing that fixes it, is to reboot the
    router, only to fail a few hours later.

    This is the second router I have bought, the first one did the same
    thing, so I had it replaced. I've tried reloading my configuration
    settins, this didnt seem to matter either.

    Anyone else had this issue?

    I've done so already.

    Even a fresh reinstall of the latest firmware.

    Actually, I think the problem may be neighbors using wireless.. though
    the only SSIDS i can see our wireless G (I am/was using wireless A).
    It could be that someone has their SSID hidden and has recently gotten
    and using the A band I guess.

    Weird part is.. since I switched back to channel 6 (wireless turbo G),
    the same port I can clearly see a neighbor or two definitely using, I
    have not had the router lockup (3 days now), whereas with the A, it was

    locking up nearly every day.

    I'm still convinced it must be a wireless clash though.

    I had a DI-784 that did this exact thing. It was a defective unit. My
    suspicion is that it had a heat problem as the case was very hot.
    DLink replaced it under warranty and the new one doesn't even get warm
    to the touch. It doesn't lock up either.

    If your unit is still under warranty, call DLink and get an RMA for

    Actually.. mine was replaced already.. due to the same problem.

    Since disabling all wireless on it.. it hasnt locked up (I just ran a
    long network cable instead, for now).

    DLINK DI-784 Lock Ups

    I had the same issue with this router, talked with DLInk Tech Support and they told me it was defective. I got a new router from them with the same issue!

    What I was able to figure out was that WPA-PSK was the issue, this router (even with the latest firmware 2.40) continued to lock up periodically. Once I set the router to WEP 152 encryption it has not locked up since
