    Default Internet light on router keeps turning off too frequently. Fix?

    I'm not sure how many of you have faced this problem, but this is like an everyday occurence for me. I use the MTNL 450TC1 (but i am thinking of upgrading to another which i chose in another thread). Now, i do not use the ethernet cable, only Wifi. Occasionally, the Internet light on the router vanishes, sometimes for minutes, sometimes for hours. It's really annoying. The only way i know to fix it is to call someone, mostly call myself, with the landline. This reactivates the Internet light. However, about half the time, the light vanishes again after some time. I read online that a permanent fix to this is to buy a new router. Is this true? And, is there any other way of fixing this that does not include buying a new router?

    The way you have described I dont see how getting a new modem would help. You should get your line checked for faults by calling MTNL instead. Also try replacing your filters.

    Then what do i do? I have contacted MTNL, and have been for the past 2 years. They do not help. At all. They sent over somebody once, he checked it. Said that it shouldn't happen again. Then it happened again. Then they sent another, he set up some sort of wire. No problems for 3 months. Then, problems. Now, they don't even bother sending anyone, they just give me a complaint number and never act on it. Also, what is a filter and where can i get it?

    Adsl filter that has one input for the main cable and two outlets one for phone and one for your adsl modem.

    It could be a router fault as well. I'd sugest that you get a spare router (from your friend, having MTNL connection) and see whether it works well.. Just to make sure that the line is okay. Then you will find the culprit.. either the line, or the modem!

    You can have your router taken to your friends place as well! Hope you will get some clues!
