I’m brand new her, and hope that one of you have some ideas on how to solve a problem I have with my net/internet connection.
The network is:
Router with WiFi (Philips SNB5600).
Stationary computer connected via cable.
Two Netbooks connected via WiFi.
NAS connected via cable.
Up to four Android phones connected via WiFi.
Just before last weekend the internet disappeared from all connected devices, just like that, no changes was made in software, hardware or configuration from my side. So I tried to find out exactly what, why and how to solve it, but no luck so far.
What I found out is that:
If I disconnect the cable from the PC, all other devices run OK via WiFi, just as before.
Replacing the cable between PC and router don’t change anything at all.
Everything connected as before the internet is of cause down but:
I can transfer files from the NAS to the PC.
I can get access to the IP-address/setup in the router, but it does seem unstable, sometimes gif-files with logo are missing for example sometimes not.
I tried to back-up the settings from the router, and it does start the process and ask where I want the backup.bin file. After a while (48 KB last time) with a transfer speed on 2.52 KB it stops, and I don’t get anything at all.
I wonder if the router is defect, or maybe a reset of the router will do the trick. The reason to why I haven’t tried to reset the router is that I’m between jobs, so I really need the connection to send applications. If I reset the router with no or a slim chance to get access to the setup, and the WiFi goes to I’m in trouble and can’t send applications, so I hope for some good advice before doing or buying anything.
I seen others run the MiniToolBox, and so did I (earlier this week) with all options chosen, most of the result is gibberish to me. I tried to copy in the text from the report in this post but are not allowe to, so now I try to attach the file and see what happens.
