NB6 goes to sleep after 1-2days

Post by darylp » Sat May 10, 2008 3:22 pm

I've got a NB6 v3.29u firmware which looks after a Windows SBS 2003 Server running PPTP server.

The modem seems to run out of resources after 1-2days.
It is no longer accessable via the LAN web interface.
A power-cycle seems to fix it.

I've got 5 NB6Plus4W units which work really well, but I know the NB6Plus4W has 16MB RAM, whereas the NB6 only has 8MB.

None of my working sites have a PPTP GRE tunnel defined, though.

The ADSL side of things is stable, no drop-outs etc.

I know NetComm recently had a bad batch of NB6Plus4W routers, I wonder if this NB6 is likely to be bad too?

It there anyone else out their using a NB6 with a PPTP GRE tunnel defined that can say "Great modem, have 10 remote PPTP clients connecting everyday, don't have problems."

It dose sound like an issue the the Netcomm modem itself.

The only thing i can suggest is you give network a call, they may have a new firmwear or may let you know that it is faulty and they will replace it for you.
