Hi Steve!

Just finished reading your latest Stickman Column,and came across your story about the permanent Internet Outages you experience. Understanding from your review, that you also use Torrent Programs, I might have a suggestion:
In case you use Microtorrent, go to Settings-Advanced, and find the entry net.max_halfopen.
Play a bit with this setting, try to reduce it to 8, or even lower (3, or 4 maybe), and see if you still have the issues.
All Modems and Routers have problems with storing the information required to leave a connection to another peer in a "half-open" state, when during longer periods nothing is actually transmitted, but the connection is still there. There are buffers that store the necessary information for these connections, but with too many of them, these buffers might overflow, resulting in phenomena like you describe.
Try it out, and see if it helps!

Thanks! Does this translate to Utorrent?

The TP-link wireless modem/router arrived and is sitting here in front of me.. but I'd like to give the Dlink a clean bill of health before proceeding.

Utorrent is Microtorrent. In fact, The Program's name is derived from the greek letter My which stands for Micro. As it takes too much effort to find the greek letter (looks a bit like the u character anyway ...) lots of People name it Utorrent ....

Hope that explains it!

Geez.. that should have been obvious. Thanks.

At the moment I'm running fine on the new TP-Link.. no issues at all. In a few weeks I'll pull it, try the setting, and see if I can clear up the issues with the Dlink. I'd hate to give something a bad review when a simple setting would fix it.

So far I've been on the TP-Link five days, not a single drop, everything whizzing along faster than ever. To say I'm pleased would be an understatement. I think I'm going to work out it's own fan system so it stays working.
