I have a FAST5364 3.00 router running SG4K10002816t firmware that is causing some devises connected to say they are connected but with no internet. A reset seems to sort it for a while but the problem comes back a few days later.
Having done a search online it seems this has been a problem for some people before but I can't see any talk of a fix.
Just wondering if there is a fix and if I'm running the latest firmware?

You don't need to do anything, just leave the router switched on and @Debbie-TalkTalk will be able to update the firmware for you. Your router will drop its connection and restart as part of the update.
If it has been this known DNS issue causing your problems then the firmware upgrade should fix it. However if you have only been seeing this issue on wireless devices, and not wired devices, then it is also possible that Wi-Fi interference could cause similar symptoms. So if you do still experience the same problems after the upgrade then do post back here to let us know, and we can try to help further.
The support team here will be back in the morning, so will hopefully be able to do the update then.

Apologies for this.
I can update your router with new firmware which should fix the DNS issue.
When would be the best time to update your router FW? We advise to leave the router switched on without being rebooted whilst we update the firmware.

That version of firmware is known to have an issue that can cause DNS resolution failures, so this can cause devices to effectively be unable to access the internet even though they are connected fine to the router, and the router still shows the white LED indicating that it is connected.
There are newer versions of firmware that claim to resolve this issue. The support team here should be able to assist when they are back tomorrow.

How do the affected devices connect to the router via a wired (Ethernet) or wireless connection?
