Modem setup, reviews and questions (All brands, including wireless modems)
5 posts • Page 1 of 1
I just got my sister's NB6+4W modem/router off her. It does what I'm after, very well, except... it randomly just does a factory reset. I've read a few topics, and I set my network security accordingly to those topics, but this one just keeps doing it anyway. Any advice??? It's driving me nuts, as it would be lovely not to have to run a router as well as our current modem.

You can try a firmware upgrade (check http://www.netcomm.com.au/workarea/list ... prID=37716)dawmail333 wrote:Any advice???
Otherwise, I'd suggest you buy a new modem/router
+1 on the firmware check. These things can run very hot in the far too small cases, and consequently shut down. Be careful of 240 volts, but what happens with the case open? Even if it fixes it, it is hardly a long term solution, unless drilling some larger holes does the trick. Don't put it on or under a hot modem or ATA.
My NB5+4 used to do this a lot till I stopped the cat from sleeping on it (HE loved the warmth). Upgraded to a NB6+4W and problem fixed (HE doesn't like the aerial ) BTW.... the NB6+4w is a much better modem all round. Never had a problem with it. Sounds like a warranty call to me. It shouldn't behave like that.
