suspected power failure/inconsistency causing network problems
Posted on 2004-08-15
I'm running a small wireless network with 8 workstations and a single (Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless B router w/ 4port ethernet switch)Access Point. All WS have WinXP pro or home ed.
The network has been experiencing inconsistency and occasional failure. After being gone for a week I come back and the network is completely down. I check the linksys router config and it has reverted to default settings. The only thing that could cause this is the router powering off or reseting. How do I find out if the power is the problem? Also is there anyway to make sure that the router keeps it's settings after a power loss? Do I need a battery backup for the router?
