i got a new router its a D-Link DIR-300.
i currently live in an apartment block with an ethernet connection type internet. what happens is you plug the Ethernet into a single computer. when plugged in it comes up with a screen where you can log-in and if successful it redirects you to your home page and you can resume browsing the internet.
so when i plug the ethernet onto my router, i can log in and use the internet for a varied amount of time fine, but then suddenly sometimes, the webpages stop loading. not just some, but all of them. even tho the webpages stop loading skype, MSN Yahoo messenger etc. work fine. i can even do voice calling and everything. so after this happens, it wont load till i reset the router and Re-login again when the router boots.
it is very annoying not just because i have to keep doing it but im thinking constant rebooting cant be good for the router.
i thought i may have been the WPA2 encryption that was effecting it but i switched to WEP with no luck. then i disabled WEP and not i only have MAC address filtering to see if that helped but that doesnt work either.
i have no idea what it is!.
help would be much appreciated it.
PS. when the internet is working, i have to resfresh a page a few times because it wont load the page straight away. itll give me the error that the server may be down but then when i refresh it will load it.
