    Unhappy Features or stability???

    Hi all,

    I have a big problem with all the latest firmwares, both from ASUS and all the ones that are derived from that.

    I've tried every version that I found here but nothing stoped my problem.

    The problem is that I get random hard-resets of my router. Especially if I run for example web-radio. But it also happens when I'm just surfing. After the reset the logfile is cleared so I can not find the cause of this.

    I use a very basic setup with 2 wire-less laptops and 2 wired pc's. No ftp, no camera, no printer and no audio or something.
    My connection is a PPPoE from Casema/Wanadoo.

    With the older firmwares I never got this problem. (But different ones )

    It looks like that everyone is trying to put more and more fancy features in this router but forget about stability.
    For some features (like the usb-audio) I really think that no-one ever uses it...... (just my opinion)

    Can some-one help me to find a sollution for this stability problem???

    Yes, go back to an older, stable firmware, especially if you don't use any of the advanced features.

    I also have a pretty basic config and I still use 1.6.5.3.

    My router has been up and running for more then four months now.

    That is why we've added "Known bugs in official Asus firmware" topic to te FAQ, trying to ask ASUS to fix them.
    It's very hard to me to solve your problem - it is never happened to me, and I see no reason for it... Previously you've written, that 1.8.1.7 works stable for you. Is this true?

    yep, I never had these problems with 1.8.1.7

    What has changed that could cause this problem??
    Something with pppoe?

    All versions of the 1.9.X.X series has this problem.

    Can I downgrade to 1.8.1.7. without loosing my settings?

    This is not true. The customized firmwares that Oleg made are more stable and contain less bugs than the standard ones from Asus.

    Now back to your problem, if the older firmwares don't hard reset, then why do you need the newer ones?

    Try to get back to a stable situation first, and try to figure out which older firmware doesn't cause this problem.

    @Wiz: I wasn't blaming anyone!!!

    ASUS also introduced a lot of new features.

    The bandwith management is a feature that I want to use. (This is a really good feature for a router!)

    no, pppoe stayed intact in asus firmwares. Relevant changes are: ethernet and wireless drivers. ethernet driver now includes workaround for wan-die.
    Have you tried to stop using WLAN to reduce the number of affected things?
    Also, have you experienced "WAN port dies" with 1.8.1.7?
    Have you tried 1.8.2.4?

    Can I downgrade to 1.8.1.7. without loosing my settings?
    Sure.

    I'm running now with 1.8.2.4 for 2 days without any trouble!

    Is this problem going to be fixed in the future or is 1.8.2.4 the last firmware I can ever use?

    Will it be FEATURES or STABILITY in future releases??


    Please do not forget us in the new releases!
