Last Modified: 2010-04-17
I am using Wireless Router DI-714P+. I have a xdsl modem connected to its wan port and using a fix ip configuration.

My problem is my internet connection suddenly up and down....the modem configuration is ok, the router is ok. But i dont understand why the client cannot recieve a internet. All of my client is using usb wireless lan to connect to wireless router.

One more problem is suddenly the WLAN lamp is off. so all client is disconnected from wireless lan. Is this a hardware problem or others?...

Does the router receive a WAN IP Address?
Does the light go off if you move something? Have you tried replacing cable from the router to the modem.
Do you require filters for your phones connected on the same line.

When the WAN light goes off is your link light on the modem flashing?  if so then you have a problem with either your filters (on every phone and security systems if they are hooked up to the same line, I have even seen a hydro box hooked up to the phone line which messed up a clients DSL connection)  
If the light is not flashing then your router is probably bad. (try a firmware upgrade if that doesn't do it then it could be hooped) I would think it's the later problem.

I had a dlink did this... I threw it out as broken.
It was stil flashable and I could connect through the wired ports but wlan refused to stay up or would crawl along and eventually stop. There was no obvious faults except what you described.

is there more then one wireless user?  or just the one person.  there is firmware and driver updates that correct this problem on the client side.

Yeah, I had this problem. Trying different firmware had no effect. It had worked fine up to that point. I decided that the reason could've been a power outage the house had suffered.
I also decided the router was unrepairable and replaced it. A 714 should still be under warranty? You should be able to get it RMA'd.
