    Hi guys

    looking for some help i currently have a Belkin F5D7630-4A ADSL modem wireless router that will drop my connection whenever it feels like it seems to be getting worse

    its shows sync and looks ok but cant find any websites until you reboot it

    After searching on the web is seems this model suffers from overheating as the base plate is the heatsink !!!!

    so what do you guys recommend ?

    cheers

    Is the connection problem for wired, wireless or both?

    My latest purchase (last year) was a Zyxel 660HW. So far, it has worked faultlessly. Can't give you the link, as they don't make it anymore. You can check out there other products at;

    Hi

    Any consumer / SOHO wireless router will have its share of anecdotal evidence of being crap / wonderful. Most consistently good reviews I've seen are for the linksys range using downloaded improved firmware. The most consistently bad have been for, well, Belkin :rolleyes:

    I have a D-Link dsl model I have seen the most appalling reviews of, but it has worked well for me for two years, with only two re-boots needed that weren't a consequence of line failure (i.e. blame bt not the router...).

    Also, there are other issues that affect connectivity - like interference. Have you tried using different channels? Any firmware upgrades available - I've seen reports that this can be significant for your model?
