Router crashes when more than on connected


I have a Netgear WGR614 V9 both at home and in work. When I am the only one connected everything works flawless wired or wireless but as soon as someone else connects the connecting goes ropey and eventually the connections drop until the router reconnects.

Has anyone ever had this issue of could someone point me in the direction to resolve this problem. This is the only issue I have with Linux?

Richie

Welcome to LQ

Perhaps you could try to do a firmware upgrade.
From the reviews I found on the net, this is a common problem with the netgear routers.
They can't handle lots of TCP connections, bittorrent, more the one computer....

Kind regards

Thank you

Thanks for your reply I will see what I can do, the issue is that when using MAC or Windows these routers have no issues its only when using my linux laptop.

Perhaps you could try to change the MTU.

I have heard about the MTU value and from the symptoms I have had feel that this is the next step I will take. Thank you for all your help.
