Router trouble waking up in morning

February 26, 2009 at 16:11:17
Specs: Windows Vista Home
At night I shut down PC(new Acer Vista home) which the router(Siemens gigaset se567) is connected to via ethernet cable AND wireless antena, wake up in morning, start computers (PC and/or wireless laptops-Sony Vaio Vista home, Acer Aspire 1 XP home) and no connections happen for any computers.

Using any computer I click on the tray red "x" and tell it to connect and it does not connect. The wireless router is on and connection lights are on.

I unpower router, New APC UPS off, wait 10 seconds, then UPS on and allow the router to restart. Problem fixed for all connections in the house.

Happens on most days except rarely there is no problem. Nothing, as far as I can see, is done differently from a day it works to a day it does not. Booting up and shutting down PC mid day does not affect connections.

Any advice on this situation?

Next time go into the routers web interface and look at the wan settings.

Do you have a ip address?
DHCP lease?

Who is your provider and what type of connection [cable/dsl/?]?

Don't shut down the computers.

How about we try troubleshooting this first before recommendation? Could very well be an ISP issue. :-)

Thanks for getting us started.

Router's web interface- being a roomate, I do not have access to that. The owner does not have the info to check the web interface. Neither of us are experienced with wireless or routers.

I am pretty sure our IP is "not static".

DHCP lease- how do I know if we are using one? If we do use a DHCP lease maybe the problem is with reallocation.

Our provider is Telus in BC Canada, it is a DSL service.

As you can tell we are not the most proficient with networking but I will do what I can to dig up the info that will help.

Look at the nics properties and power savings. Should be set to disabled. This will prevent the nic from being put to sleep.

You need to review the router documentation.

Without access there is little we can do to troubleshoot.

Might want to call your ISP and see if they can help you.
