I seem to be suffering from the WAN port dies issue mentioned not once in this forum.
I'm using firmware version -184.108.40.206-6b (also tried the latest)
I'm using the firware since it came out and all worked fine, from about 4
weeks ago I started suffering from the WAN port dies issue... Mostly
when emule is working, but also when it's turned off, at a lesser rate.
Emule settings haven't changed in about 3 years now. (Nor did anything in the
I'm using a wl500g router connected to an alcatel speed touch home modem.
When I connected the modem directly to one of the PC's an ran emule for
a few hours nothing bad happened and the surfing seemed a lot faster then
with the router as well. (with the router the disconnects are between every 5 to 60 minutes more or less)
The funny thing is that the router never reboots when this happens, the WAN just dies as far as it's concerned and that's it...
I tried resetting it to factory and reloading the firmware again, and nothing helps.
It is very important to note that the exact same network worked for over a year flawlesly and nothing changed...
The router doesn't overheat as I tried to keep it in an airconditioned room
with 10c temperature (compared to 35-40 without AC) and there was no difference...
Ideas? Suggestiong on how to fix this?
I tried changing the WAN speed manually to each and every one of the
options 10half/full 100half/full and this has no affect...
