Bought a WD N900 recently and have been having mixed results with it.
I did install the latest firmware and most settings have been left to Default except for FastTrack and QoS that I had to turn off because they were causing the same issues as some other users have reported: (Slow browsing or unable to access many websites) For the fact, I’m also an owner of a Sympatico SpeedStream DSL modem.
Now, here’s the main problem I have now… The N900 seems to randomly stop providing internet access to the connected devices. This usually happens a couple days after I power it off and reboot it. When it occurs, I can’t browse to any websites anymore but the very odd thing is that any active downloads will still continue and complete properly.
Rebooting the device fixes the problem but doing that every couple days is very annoying, especially considering the price I paid for this router, I expect it to work all the time.
I’ve been supporting WD for many years and I don’t want to have to return this to the store.
Any help or advice would be highly appreciated.
