Have to restart Belkin N+ Router everyday

Specs: Windows 7
Hey Tech Support Team. I have the same exact problem as the person whom started the thread and was hoping someone could shed some light. Here are some details to give you an idea of my setup: Windows 7, Belkin N+ Wireless Router (F5D8235-4). The router has two PC's connected to it via ethernet cable (both with Windows 7), one Windows XP Tablet PC (wireless), and one Buffalo LinkStation Duo NAS (via ethernet).

Everything works great when it is working. But every morning when we come into work, we start all of the computers and none of the computers can access the internet, so we tried to see if we can connect to one of the other PC's within the network, but no luck there either. We tried to connect to the Belkin Router Setup ( and it won't connect to the router as well. We manually restart the router by unplugging the power cable and then plugging it back in. After restarting the router, everything works as it should. We can connect to the router, other PC's within the network, and the internet as well without doing anything but restarting the router. We are not sure what is causing this problem to occur over night. It is becoming very tedious to restart the router every morning. Surely there has to be a proper solution to this problem other than just continuing to restart the modem. This is used in small business and is necessary to function properly. One suggestion was made to upgrade the firmware of the router to the latest one which we did 2 days ago and it did not fix the problem.

Would love to hear some words of wisdom.

Although this is not so much a fix for the issue, if the router is not used overnight then why not power the router off when you leave the office then plug it back in when you arrive back in the morning - then you solve the issue of the router crashing and save power!

The other thing I would recommend is try placing the router in a well ventilated area - I don't have this model of router but some routers can get very hot, and this can cause them to crash in similar circumstances to yours

Hope that this advice helps anyway :P

Option C get another router, they are inexpensive and not made to last like a $1500 cisco router. I have had good luck with tp-link and cisco, had similar issues you are having with a dlink router, changed router haven't had to restart the router since the day I bought it (tp-link) which was only $69. So they aren't as reliable as $1500 one, but $69 divides into that often enough to play the game. Belkin is generally good, they are all generally good with some models that lack shall we say. I say end the headache, replace the router.
