Re: Help?! MBR1000/598U Central FL
Okay, well, no troubles in the hour or so that I plugged directly into my laptop, and I had to update firmware on my CTR500, but I've now set up my network with it alone and so far, so good. I've been on for at l3ast 25 minutes and no hang ups. Unless something changes, I'm thinking that my trusty old mbr1000 is giving up the ghost.
Will let y'all know if anything changes . . .
Well, problem not entirely gone - in a basic 8 hour workday, I had to disconnect/reconnect once. After the kids got home in the afternoon, though, signal dropped repeatedly again probably every 15-30 minutes.
Beginning to think that our tower capacity may be just getting maxed out - makes sense that it works better for me during the day, but when everyone is home it slows down. Even when I'm the only one on the computer after 4PM, we have random disconnects. Generally I'm able to use my search engine and email - just can't load any other pages.
So I think we're in a "hurry up and wait" situation for our towers to be upgraded (our area is slated for 4G LTE in the next few months).
Problem seems to have resolved, to the point where I re-did my original setup with my MBR1000 as main router with the two others daisy chained - either over a period of months my setup had become corrupted, or there has been some tower issue I think, but we're back!
