Dantaniean Posted April 5, 2019 Share Posted April 5, 2019 Just after some advice. I am wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a good basic router to support the R1. For the past few years I have always used TP-Link based routers. In that time I must have gone through about four of them. The problem seems to be dropping connection. The first two I had seemed to relate to me switching the TP-Link routers off at night. The last two I have not done that, but overall a period of time there has been a slow increase in disconnects. It starts subtly with wireless disconnects and then it moves to actual disconnects from the net. Last week it dropped a total of twenty times in one day. I have recently purchased another TP-Link, mainly because it is the only one that is in a good price range and is readily available (more fool me). The first couple of days have been fine, no drops or anything. Then the wireless drops have started to creep in. Once yesterday and twice today. I'm expecting the same sort of thing with this one in that it will go on over a period of time and will fail again. In fact reviews of a lot of the TP-Link modems and some others have indicated it is a reoccurring problem and recommend not purchasing their modems. Hence why I am here now. My internet connection is with Plus Net and they have offered to send me one of their modems instead. I am tempted to use theirs, but I wonder what control I will be given if I chose theirs. I know there might be a restriction on promoting other routers on this site, but if anyone has any advice I would welcome it. Many thanks. NB. The phone line has been tested by BT and Plus Net and everything is ok there. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
