Shutdown?

Why is my brand new MOD# WNR1000v4 Netgear router shutting off the I-net the day after I bought & installed it? I've got it running now (had to pull the power for 30 secs!), but why would it shut down for no apparent reason?

Re: Shutdown?

When you say shut down, do you mean it reset itself or did you lose wifi connection?

IF you had read my comment/complaint, you would know that I said "shutdown!" and NOT loss of wifi connection. You are either a bot, or a kool-aid drinker!

   Some reasons are not apparent.  Has it happened more than once?

   At the risk of soundling like a grown-up, I'll note that "shutdown"
(or "shut down") is a computer term with an actual meaning, different
from "wireless network stopped working".  As usual, showing actual
actions with their actual results (error messages, LED indicators, ...)
can be more helpful than vague descriptions or interpretations.  Rather
than try to use/misuse inappropriate/misleading terms like "shutdown" to
explain what you think is happening, you might try to describe the
actual behavior which you can observe.  What you think it all means is
much less interesting.
