I'll give details to enable anyone who replies to help to know more about my setup.
ISP Sky llu unlimited router is a old D link they used to supply for a short time quite a many years ago.
Router at master socket connected via standard filter along with a dect phone (used for years never interfered with router before so i doubt it is the phone)
Router has two ethernet cables connected.
Ethernet port 4 goes to a ipcam that has a rule set for it to aways get the same lan ip via its mac.
Router is set to not respond to ping, upnp turned off also external management, whatever u call it where you can access router from wan is turned off.
I left wifi ssid sky default and wpa2 was selected by default. However i did increase the wpa2 key to 24 digits.
2nd Ethernet port in use is 1 it goes to a 8 port D link switch which is connected to a smart tv, and two windows 7 computers. and that is all on switch. I don't believe switch is playing a part in any of this.
Wifi devices connected to it are. One tablet, a smartphone, wii u, another smart tv and a laptop.
That means in house there are 4 ethernet connected devices 3 via switch and 4th due to ipcam.
Wifi another 5 so upto 9 devices.
What has been occuring past 3-4 day's is while router stays in sync and is having no issues with noise margins attenuation etc line staying stable connection up etc. my Devices all my wifi devices have started dropping connection (accept my laptop for some reason. It has a good Intel wifi chipset maybe that helps?)
Rebooting and reseting router has not helped.
Ethernet seems to be affected but much less. Only Ethernet issue i have noticed is my computers lose access to the ipcam it vanishes from attached devices list which has never occurred before.
So from that i believe it is the router. But is it just overloaded from too many devices connecting and disconnecting and being used non stop. Or is it dieing it is quite old now?
Cheers for any replies.
