My second router is reaching the end of its life! Looking to hear what\nrouters people with heavily loaded ADSL connections use...??\n\nA bit of history:\n\nMy first ADSL router which I got a couple of years ago, a 3com OCR612, had\nproblems regaining ADSL synchronisation when the connection dropped. Also\nit crashes reasonably often - maybe every 2-3 days.\n\nThe next router, which I got about a year and a half ago, is a Solwise\nSAR-110. Worked fine at first (although I've never had any luck with the\nweb interface - it always stalls: luckily it's got a (cryptic) command\nline interface where I can do administration).\n\nUnfortunately for the last couple of months it's been dying slowly - it\nlocks up, with the time-to-lockup decreasing by the week. We're now down\nto something like roughly 6 hours between lockups, which is very annoying\n- have to go running through to the server cupboard and\ndisconnect/reconnect the router power every time.\n\nWe actually just use the router as a ethernet-connected modem: we've got a\nsmall public IP block, so one public IP is assigned to a server which does\nNAT, firewalling etc for the rest of the network, so all I need the\nrouter to to do is connect to my DSL provider and route traffic between\nits phoneline and ethernet interfaces! Keep It Simple!\n\nThe connection is shared between some computing students, so it's fairly\nheavily used (both upstream and downstream). So if anyone out there has a\nrouter which you've just plugged in, thrashed around a bit, and haven't\nhad any hiccups from the router, I'd be very interested to hear what the\nrouter is!
