Router on its last legs?

Hi there,

 

I have a D-Link DSL2680 router, which has been functioning just fine until recently, but now it seems to be dropping really frequently and download speeds are painfully slow.  I haven't moved anything around cable wise.

 

I can't find anything on this router on this site - could anyone help with letting me know how I could get it replaced or any other suggested fix?

 

Thanks

Hi

 

I'm showing the line in sync for the last 20 days at just over 14mb.

 

Are you only noticing the drops on devices connected via wifi ?

 

Thanks

Hi Karl,

 

Thanks! Yes, it's only wi-fi.

Hi

 

Have you tried changing the wifi channel ?

 

If you have an android device there is a useful app 'wifi analyser' that can show if there is any wifi interference around you.

 

Thanks

Thanks Karl.  I haven't played with the channels in a long time.  I'll try that and let you know how I get on.  And also see what comes up on the analyser.

Hi Karl,

 

Just to let you know that the signal's much stronger and much more stable.  I had somehow reset the router to auto.

Thanks for your help.
