Re: ASUS RT-N12D1 - Suddenly not working in AP mode

No, don’t buy a new router just yet.

If it has only happened once, it could just be a random event. See how it goes if it gets more frequent then look into things. EG resetting the router etc.

Re: Hotspot Gateway with Captive Portal

Have a look at Ubiquiti products, they do the equipment you are looking for.

www.broadbandbuyer.co.uk sell them, and they are very good at giving advice on which equipment will best suit your needs.

Re: Wireless router kept in a metal rack.

Possibly, but the metal box will still be shielding the signal.

Re: Wireless router kept in a metal rack.

Hi, yes your wireless signal will be degraded by the metal cabinet. Best option would be to take the router out. If that is not possible then look into aerials that could be mounted outside the cabinet. Or a wifi extender.

Re: Help me choose the best router

I can recommend ASUS routers. I've had one at home and work for a few years. Both are rock solid. Plus there is third party firmware available (RMerlin) to get that little bit more out of them.

Re: Need help in connection troubleshooting

If you have tried another router, and you still cannot connect to the internet , then the fault will either be with your line, internally or externally. Get your ISP to check out your line.

Re: Need help in connection troubleshooting

Hi, What make/type of router do you have?

If a factory reset doesn't work, then I think the router may have died. Are you sure it has reset to factory settings? Once you have reset it, you would have to put all your ISP details, Wi-Fi passwords in again.

Re: I cannot get my Technicolor router to forward ports!

Not an ideal way of doing it, You could put your server in the DMZ. That will prove the server can be seen on your network.

Re: Problem with wireless connection ASUS RT-n66u

Hi, what firmware are you using? I have had the same problem with the latest merlin firmware. I have installed the latest official firmware from Asus and it cured the problem.

Re: Want a router that allows time limits

If your 'Kids' are up to cracking passwords, ringing your isp for logon details, figuring out how to take their device off static IP, then I don't think your going to be able to stop you kids undoing all your security!!

Re: Want a router that allows time limits

Yes, they could log into the router, I would have thought a very long and secure password should stop them though. The router can always be hard reset as well, but if that was done you would hope they couldn't carry on serving with default settings. Ie you could change your ip range to be different ...

Indeed, you need to find a forum community that specialise in your router. If you find one, and you fix the problem, please let us know how you did it.
