Re: [Help] Belkin Router Drops Signal

Yes, I had something like this happen with a Belkin PlayMax. The darn thing was super sensitive to electrical power fluctuations. I got a 1500VA APC UPS and plugged the cable modem and the Belkin PlayMax into it. I set the UPS to the highest sensitivity to deal with small short power drops. That cleared up most, 75%, of the lockups and reboots of the router.

The other problem I have read about is that if you are signed up for a cable internet service speed above 20Mbps download, you should upgrade the modem from a DOCSIS 2.0 model to a DOCSIS 3.0 model. The DOCSIS 2.0 modem models "should" be able to handle downloads of up to 38Mbps, but they seem to have some problems in the 20-38Mbps range. Upgrading might reduce the problem.
