Hi all. Not exactly an audio question, but certainly electronics/DIY related.
I have a sky router which recently started dropping wireless transmission.
The router will work fine over LAN but wireless isn't broadcast.
If I power cycle the router, it will broadcast for approx. 1 minute.
We ruled out everything and sky replaced the router. When they did, I took the old one out and tried it as a repeater.
(LAN in - Wireless out).
To my surprise it worked and has continued to work.
Now, If I were to plug in the phone line and try it as the main router, it will drop wireless broadcasting almost immediately.
It's not that I can't connect or signal is weak; The wireless network will cease to exist.
It's not especially important now that we have a replacement, but I wondered if I could fix it and keep it as a spare.
Does any one have any thoughts?
There are three caps where the ADSL line enters the board. Perhaps replacing them would be a good start?
It's a charcoal grey sky sagem router.
I replaced the electrolytic on the left as I happened to have a spare.
The power comes in at the left, and ADSL connector is at the right.
