I have a Belkin FSD7632-4 ADSL wifi router. Ever since I got it, I've faced this problem of websites timing out.
For example, I go to flickr.com, and the images won't load because they come from farm1.static.flickr.com. Either I wait 10 minutes or so until the timed out sockets are closed and retry (with variable results) or I reboot the router.
This happens irrespective of whether I use wired or wifi network.
I'm in India, using Airtel Broadband, and if I use my ISP supplied Beetel 220BX ADSL router (which has no wifi and only one LAN port), everything works fine. I copied over the broadband settings from my old router:
- VPI/VCI values=1/32
I have not enabled any firewall on the router.
Is there anything else I can try? Or is it a defect with the router and should I take it back for a replacement? I bought it just 2 months ago.
