I've recently been having problems with my Netgear Router DG834G v 5 with fluctuating downstream speed, occasional loss of signal and log date showing 1 Jan 2003?? most of the time. I've already posted in the Hardware section re my woes and have had some helpful advice.
Anyhow, I've been trying to get Routerstats Lite to work with my router but whatever I do I cannot get it to work. I've double checked everything over and over but it just won't connect with the router. I've also got the latest version of the full routerstats which also wont work. I'm entering the correct url - http://10.0.0.1 - which was changed from the generic by Netgear support when I had problems at the outset. The user name and password are correct. It just comes up with error all the time. I've left it to try and connect for over 10 mins at a time b ut it just is not having any of it!!! I've tried leaving the firewall off in my internet security suite to see if that was the problem but no still no joy. Checked the windows firewall etc
Can anyone offer any advice as to what this is so as I am very keen to get it working to be able to monitor the constantly fluctuating drop in the downstream speed being reported by the router between 17500ish to 4000ish. My ISP have reported no problems. Have conducted a couple of speed BT tests which give my IP profile as 15.6 which is v good (no complaints) but obviously I want to know if it is in fact a faulty router or an intermittent fault on the line itself.
