Actiontec MI424WR Router Revision I - bug/problem ?!

Click for full size
Click for full size
I held off on writing this message for a few days to make sure this was not a fluke or some service-related problem. I have experienced it TWICE now, so something must be going on.

Background:
=========
I am running FIOS Triple Play service since January 6 (10 days). I have the Actiontec MI424WR FIOS N Router REV. I. Connected to it is an Netgear WNDR4500 (via LAN to LAN connection), which serves as Access Point. WiFi is completely turned OFF on the Actiontec.

I had Internet/Phone only package for 18 months without any problems, service downtime or slowdowns. The connection was from the ONT directly to Netgear WNDR3700 router via Ethernet. There was no Actiontec(s) used.

Issue:
=====
The problem desrcibed below is happening on my HARDWIRED PC (meaning, connected via Ethernet to LAN), so this has nothing to do with WIFI.

On two separate occasions noticed that after running for about 48-72 hours, that the internet pretty much stops working. Some pages stop loading (cannot be found) but some do load (VERY SLOWLY), but do not display graphics, or the text is misalligned and in weird fonts. See two attached screen captures. Note especially that some of the graphic "boxes" don't load at all. In addition, my Outlook 2010 starts getting "stuck" in trying to retrieve email, and PING'ing sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.

Testing:
======

Going to 192.168.1.1 (IP of Actiontec) and/or 192.168.1.26 (IP of Netgear WNDR4500) shows that both are connected to the internet. However, those same pages load "slowly".

I initially thought that thep roblem may be within my PC or the Netgear WNDR4500, but I am 99% sure it is not related to either. First of all, I have been running the same build of Windows 7 SP1 for at least 6 months and I never have any problems. Additionally, when these internet issues start, the rest of the computer continues to run just fine. REBOOTING the PC (numerous times) does NOT resolve the issue.

I then went on to see if rebooting the WNDR4500 helps anything. Nada. Same issues remain.

Only when I reboot the Actiontec MI424WR FIOS N Router REV. I (running firmware version: 40.19.22) does the problem get completely resolved. This is done while the the is PC on and without any reboots. After the Actiontec goes back online, I am able to just refresh any of the "defective" webpages, and they re-load fast and looking just fine.

This lasts for about 48-72 hours, and then the same exact problem arises.

Conclusion:
========
Something must be happening to the Actiontec that causes this scenario. By the way, the STB's work just fine during this whole ordeal.

I would love to hear opinions from others, or especially if you think you had something like this happen to you.

I just can't imagine what it can be.

Hi Dagwag,

The thread that you pointed to is one that was started by me and dealt with internal issues of Netgear WNDR3700, WNDR3800 and the WNDR4500.

The issue described above has been "localized" to the Actiontec, and has nothing to do with ther WNDR4500 (please re-read what I wrote about rebooting WNDR4500 and the problem is still there).

So the issue that I am now dealing with and need help on is one of Actiontec.

Gotcha, sorry for the misdirect.

Has the actiontec been crapping out since you got it? I assume, 10 days ago? Could be bad hardware. What happens if you take the AP out of the equation (I know you said hardwired, but maybe some routing is still enabled on the netgear?).

Turn the logging on for the actiontec and see if something in there pops out at you.

You using Verizon's DNS or someone elses - could it be a DNS problem?

Thanks for the suggestions. I have not tried to run this without the Netgear connected in the middle, as my wifi is in daily use. This of course will be my last restort to test.

I will turn on logging on the Actiontec in the meantime.

I am using Verizon DNS, as far as I can tell. It was assigned by the Auctiontec.

I hope to hear from soneone else who may be experiencing this.

I know the actiontec's wireless isn't the best, but maybe try that for the day and see if you experience the same problems to rule out any issues with the netgear.

I run this simultaneous on DUAL bands (which I dont think the Actiontec can even do), so it is not that easy for me to just hook it up. Also, it usually takes 2-3 days before the issue starts.

It can't. But its a good troubleshooting step to figure out where the issue is originating. Yes, it is a small sacrifice, hopefully towards the goal of not having this issue anymore.

You can also attack it from the other end and ask VZ to replace the AT, perhaps you got a dud?

Maybe try using different DNS servers and see if that helps? (You can use namebench to find the fastest for you)

You said that you added TV correct? Is your AT connected to the ONT via ethernet or coax? Either way the tech was in the ONT box, so check to make sure your cabling is connected securely and isn't kinked.

The TV is connected via COAX from the ONT and the Internet is connected via ETHERNET from the ONT.

I will wait for a week or so to see if anyone else has these issues. As far as DNS, why would a DNS make a difference? Remember, my internet doesnt just stop. It just gets extremely slow, and some pages open and some don't. And those that do, have much of the graphic display missing and/or misalligned.

I am not challenging you in your suggestions. Believe me, I am very happy to hear them. Just not sure if DNS could be an issue here.

I will say that, that if this keeps happening, I will ask for my Actiontec to be swiped for a new one.

Thankfully, the solution right now is easy to fix this. Go down to the basement, turn it off and right back on, and everything works!

For the guide, VOD, etc. to work, the Actiontec needs to be connected to the coax as well. It feeds the STBs with this information over MoCA.

Look at your Actiontec - which is lit up, WAN Ethernet or WAN Coax? Is there a coax line plugged into the AT as well as an ethernet into the Ethernet Wan port?

Check your cabling. Reseat connections at the router and the ONT. Make sure its not kinked.

Thanks for correcting me. Indeed the following lights are lit-up on the Actiontec:

Power, WAN Ethernet, Internet, LAN Ethernet #1 (cable to WNDR4500) and LAN Coax.

I have re-checked all of the cable connections, including the ones on the COAX splitter. Since one of the spots on the splitter is unused, the technician put a cap on it.

Again, appreciate all the help.

Try a different DNS server. I have had the same issue as you in the past and it was a Verizon owned DNS server that was flaking out and eventually went offline. Changing the DNS server takes seconds and at the same time you rule it out as a problem.

Interesting. I have an ActionTec E with firmware 20.19.8 and seeing similar problems with the computer locking up as web pages load. Programs that are not connected to the Internet act normal but the rest of my system goes into Non-responding mode. A laptop next the the desktop (both wired connections) also experiences the sluggish Internet loading. I have a Netgear on the network to provide n wireless capabilities. Could it be some interaction between the Netgear and ActionTec? Not sure what could be causing the problems. I did try different DNS servers with no change in performance.

Can you then please recommend a DNS server? Plus a secondary one?

As a test, on one of your computers, set the dns manually to the above IP's ( in the network connections ). that will prove disprove if its DNS issue

I forgot to post this last night, but for the past 14 hours I have been running using the above-suggested DNS.

I put these DNS #'s into the Actiontec, then rebooted both it and the Netgear WNDR4500.

So far, no probs but again, the issue described at the start of the thread usually ariseses 48-72 hours later.

I have not experienced this with the same setup you have, but the Netgear forum discussion seems to be reporting that some of the WNDR4500s may have been experiencing a DNS issue. See »forum1.netgear.com/showthread.ph···ight=dns

Hi Everyone!

Sorry to have "gone silent" but I was away on a business trip. Good news! It seems like everything is working just fine. Nothing was turned off or reset now for 5+ full days, and it looks like maybe indeed the change in the DNS solved that issue.

I am not sure if that was the same thing as I described, as reseting the WNDR4500 alone did not fix anything. It was only when I did the reset on the Actiontec that things got back to "normal". But now, since I changed the DNS, no problems for almost 6 days now.

Wow! The problem is suddenly back. Same exact problems (and symptoms) as described in the initial message of this thread. Some pages load fast, while others don't load at all. Hitting refresh sometimes work, and sometimes doesn't.

The interesting thing is that since I am using OpenDNS's DNS address, when everything works, I would get the OpenDNS error for any bad webpage. well, now when the page doesn't load, I get the ole "Internet Explorer cannot display page" error.

Now, I have NOT rebooted the Actiontec this time around. Will wait to see in the morning to see if it by any chance the situation will "resolve" itself.

I looked at the Actiontec LOG FILE and found nothing strange.

So I had one week of NO problems whats so ever and now this. Uggh!

It will be interesting what happens in the AM.

The problem did not fix itself overnight. Also, ran a parallel program to see if there were any disconnects, and there were not any.

But the loading of pages issues remained, so I have Verizon ship me a replacement.

Hopefully, it will fixed the problem.

EDIT: Just did manual OFF on the Actiontec and back ON and everything works like a charm without any reboots of the PC and/or WNDR4500.

Looks like an BETA update was just posted on Netgear website for the WNDR4500:

»support.netgear.com/app/answers/···id/19894

Descirption is:

Bug Fixes & Enhancements:
•[Fixed]: Guest network can’t access internet when client access main wifi network first.
•[Fixed]: can’t find DNS server.
•[Fixed]: when using fix ip, DHCP will send NAK and connection will drop and re-connect.
•[Enhancement]: improve the read/write speed for ReadyShare NTFS file system.

Wondering if this has anything to do with resolving my issue.

Going to wait to get my Actiontec swapped, before playing with this BETA firmware.

Sorry if I missed it earlier in the thread....but have you tried connecting a laptop directly to the ONT? (Also trying another ethernet cord?)

Hi MrKal,

No. My laptop is very old while my hardwired PC never had any problems like this until 3 weeks ago, when I went the FIOS TV way. Remember, I had Intternet/Phone only via FIOS before.

As far as using a different cord, I am pretty sure that should not be the case. Remember, I don't loose any connections when the issue starts. Just webpages get or don't get loaded. If it was an Windows / Internet Explorer issue, those should had been auto-fixed when the PC was cold-rebooted. But it just doesn't.

I just hope I have a flaky Rev. I and that it will be solved with a replaced one, which should be here today or on Monday.

The "replacement" router that was sent to me just arrived. They sent me a Rev F. So the technician is coming out on Monday with an a Rev. I.

What a waste of money (UPS overnight) and of everyone's time...

Will keep you posted.

While I am waiting for the new "Rev I" router from Verizon (sometime on Monday), I just wanted to report that I had the same issue happen again with the current one (4th occurance). And again, all I had to to do is turn off the Actiontec for 2 seconds, turn it back on and everything works like a charm!

Again, no reboot required on the PC, Netgear WNDR4500 router or even closing any IE windows thsat were having an problem loading pages.

Will keep you posted on any (I hope...) progress once the replacement is online.

Update: Got my replacement Rev I. installed yesterday evening. So far so good, but we have to wait for up to a week to make sure it has made any difference.

For the record: I swapped the cables from my old Actiontec into the new one, called Verizon tech support, they released the DHCP, then I turned on the new Actiontec. Went into the setup of the Actiontec, made the same changes (killed WIFI, set the IP range, made one IP static) to what they were in my old one and then turned off the PC, WNDR4500, then the Actiontect. Waited 20 seconds and then started the Actiontec, then the WNDR4500 and finally the PC.

Well, my replacement Rev I lasted for the same 48 hours or so and then the same exact thing happened.

I have decided to flash my WNDR4500 with the BETA firmware as the next step of trying to solve my issue. It is : Version 1.0.0.103 - BETA

In the mentime, here is a copy of my Actiontec LOG file from the moment the replacement Rev I. was installed to the moment I had to turn it off/on manually to fix thing (at 9:44:05 on Feb 2). I don't see anything wrong anywhere.

I have redacted my IP address for privacy.

And guess, what, mIRC keeps (and some Java applets) keep working with no problems and without stopping while the pages stop loading.
