ROUTER MODEM SMC7904WBRA-N REBOOTING VERY OFTEN

Hello Experts,

I have two routers modems SMC7904WBRA-N, quite often some times every 10 or 15 minuts the modem is restarting so I am loosing connection to the internet.

It tends to be usually while I am downloading media or software but it happens all the time.

I have reviewed the configuration several times and cannot see nothing wrong, I bought the routers recently as an upgrade from an old router but this is now a pain since the old router had no issues at all.

I have also upgraded to the latests firmware but the issue remains.

Any ideas will be appreciated.

Sounds like a defective router. Are they both doing that?

The SMC7904WBRA-N modem can be very sensitive to SNR - get your ISP to check and adjust if they can.  Otherwise it's look at an alternative.

Hello Edbed,

Both are doing that, I bought the routers as second hand but theoretically were both new and looked lije but it could be what ypu said.

Hello masqueraid,

Could you please tell me a bit more about what you are referring to?

Thanks both in advance

If you're using the modem part to connect to a cable (or especially a DSL line) your connection may be lost because of the Signal to Noise ratio on the line & with some modems this can cause them to restart, this SMC model is one of those.  You can get the ISP to check the level & adjust if necessary.

It is more likely this is simply bad hardware though and this is just an outside chance.
