Netgear MR814 hangs after a indefinite period

Archived from groups: alt.internet.wireless (More info?)

Dear Experts,

I am having a big headache over my newly purchased Netgear MR814
router.

I bought this router to replace my old MR314, which has served me flawlessly
in the past three years. I set up the router and connected to the Internet
without any problems (SBC Yahoo! PPPoE). However, after the router is
up running for a indefinite period of time, it just stop responding to
client
computer request. That is, no Internet traffic, not responding to pings,
and can no longer be accessed via http://192.168.0.1

The only way to regain access is to reset the router by recycling its power.
It will work well for a period of time and freeze again like before. I can
not ]
find any regular patterns on how to get the router hang. And the uptime is
ranging
from 1 hr to 1 day.

At first I thought it is a defect router. I have since exchanged for a new
one
and the problem still presists. The router has the newest firmware version.

I am so frustrated and any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks,
EH

    Is this a version 2 or version 1 model? I just got a v2, and have
    been using it about 5 days and I haven't experienced this problem.
    I'm running the latest firmware as well.

    I don't use PPPoE, so maybe it is related to that.

    I did some quick searches, and have seen people who have had problems
    with the MR814 changing the MTU value when using PPPoE.
