I have a Netgear FVS-318 v3 router with the latest firmware update. It runs a LAN with five computers, including a Win2k3 server running Mailtraq Mail Server software. This server naturally has the most traffic incoming, with hundreds of mesages per day( need I say, mostly spam). The servers and workstations all function fine, but sometimes at night, usually between 11pm and 2am, the router will choke( freeze). The WAN light works, indicating incoming traffic, but the LAN lights blink in unison, and not in response to the WAN traffic. Of course, the incoming mail stops and Internet access stops also. The only solution so far is to power cycle the router. But, that means that nothing is being received until the morning when I come in and discover the problem. Any ideas why this is happening and how to prevent or fix it in a more timely fashion?
Thanks for your help.
