    I've been using my MN-700 router fine without much of a problem except
    when I started to use BitComet. The router will eventually become
    unresponsive in a couple hours until I restarted it physcially. I know
    this router is not as good as other brand names ones but would like to
    see if that could be fixed by some configuration changes.

    Could someone out there please help? Yes, I do have the latest firmware installed.

    Thanks in advance.

    Are you having an issue with your Local Area Network, or the Internet
    connection? If the latter, I would ask your Internet Service Provider if
    they're resetting your connection on a certain schedule. If the LAN, take a
    look in the settings for renewing the leases, and push the time out as far
    as you can by changing it in the router's settings.

    I am losing both connections. When the router dies, I could not even
    get onto the admin site by

    It just might be on its last legs, Tom. Mine was fine in operation for
    several years, then started "losing" connections and the range decreased.
    Eventually it got shelved because it became unreliable.

    It has been a few years already. May be it is time for a change!? It is
    doing a good job when not using running bit torrent programs. I used to
    lose wireless signal when I first brought it but didn't have the
    problem for a long while. I just thought may be it is related to number
    of connections allowed.

    Perhaps the sheer volume of transmission is being whacked. Is this wired or
    wireless on the program PC? If wireless, have you tried an Ethernet cable
    to see if there's a difference?

    The PC is wired.

    If I recall, there was a complaint some time ago about a bug in the firmware
    of the MN700 that caused the need for a reboot if a large number of
    different IP addresses + data were accessed within a given amount of time.
    I believe that one of the programs that was mentioned in that particular
    thread was bit torrent. Try not using bit torrent for a while and see if
    that relieves the problem.

    If it does relieve the problem, then you'll have to decide whether you want
    to keep the MN700 or bit torrent! :(
