DIR-825 Router dropping signal

by robmox / October 30, 2013 2:26 AM PDT

The last two days, my DIR-825 router has been dropping the signal, then when I try to fix it, it just starts broadcasting again. There have been no issues with connection quality, but I want it to keep broadcasting. I updated the firmware today. Is my router just burnt out?

Here's a sample of the Wireless Log File:
TL:DR, the signal goes up and down about every 30 seconds. Despite the time, this all took place between 11:40 and 12:30 today October 30th.

Another thing, what would be causing the router to think it should disconnect all stations and stop broadcasting wireless?

See the date?

You could have an issue with something simple. Before we discuss any other setting, I'm going to ask you to get the date and time close on the router.
