Router help.

by yuriy101 / December 24, 2008 11:07 PM PST

Hello, i have a Linksys WRT150N router. I've had it for well over a year now and uptill now i did not have any problems. Recently i tried opening a website that i frequently visit but it said "Network Timed Out" I had afeeling that it could be a problem with my router, so i connected the modem directly to my computer without the router and the site loads up perfectly. This has happened to multiple sites i visit. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance.

So it's setup per our forum sticky? In that case the router is defective and needs to be replaced. I can't repeat the forum sticky with every post so I have to take your word it's setup that way.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
