I have a Trendnet TEW-652BRP Wireless router.

At least once a day all the PC's lose connection to the internet, not each other, just to the internet... In order for them all to get back on I have to turn the routers power switch off then on.

I tried reseting the router to factory default, thinking maybe I changed a setting in the routers software to be causing this, but it still does it.

The router is only about 3 months old... is there some type of setting that needs to be adjusted? This model is a "Green" version, so i'm not sure if it decided to shut down the internet connection to save power or what.

I also have the exact same model, that is NOT "Green" and it works perfectly fine, never have to reset, it's always up.

I went through the routers software but didnt see anything what would cause this issue.

Ideas?

Thanks all!

this router seems to have issues in the last 6 month.
on Newegg about 70% are dissatisfied.

maybe a bad batch

well scratch the Firmware idea... it has the latest, aka initial released firmware. Weak.
