Hello. My Archer VR1600v has been working fine since I got it about a month ago. Yesterday when i get home from work it only seems to last about 5 minutes of connectivity before it stops working. It doesn't drop out, it passes the internal modem tests, the modem says it's still connected - and with good speeds - but internet stops working. Tracerout from the computer gets to the modem but timesout past the modem. I have reset the modem a number of times including turning it off and back on and the same thing happens. It works for a few minutes before getting time-outs (and the modem says still connected).
I have swapped back to the old huawei modem and it works fine and internet works fine. Sounds like the Archer has developed a fault
There's no IP conflict. Only 2 devices plugged into the router, both with fixed IPs. And Wi-Fi is disabled. And I can still get to the modem with no problem. Just not past it (i.e. the first hop NBN address)
Hi @Taz have you actually done a hard reset using the button on the rear of the modem? What does the system log report? Save a copy to notepad and scroll through to see what occurs after a cold start.
i found the problem. the modem had for some reason added my computer to the blocked DoS host list. Which is silly because my computer is behind a threat management gateway and the AV software didn't find anything. False positive. All good now. hopefully it stays that way.
