It’s impossible to surf in internet with pcwrt, with Windows XP and also with Windows 10 and the latest Chrome’s version, i have always this problem:
and if i click advanced i have the warning message of pcwrt with the site’s name, in this case “google.it” in this form:
After 2 or 3 minutes internet works again, after 5 minutes, always the same story.
Please help me, i can’t surf in internet with this problem anymore.
We thought it was Windows XP, but now, with Windows 10, the same problem, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, always the same story.
And the PC is completally new, with Widows 10.
My old thread is here:
@casino The behavior is the same as before, i.e., periodically you can surf and then you can not (in cycles of about 5 minutes), right? And it happens only on the PC (XP or 10), not any other device?
On any other device, smartphones too, always the same problem, i’m in crisis.
Plese, help me to find where the problem is.
@casino When did it start? Everything seemed to be working for you for a while. What changed in between?
I looked at your original thread again. A screenshot showed that the error message was displayed in Italian. The router would only output English. What software on your PC was translating it into Italian?
Nothing, i’ve just changed the warning message in my language in the pcwrt’s option (Access Control).
Nothing has changed in this time, i had always this error. But now i’ve purchased a new pc and i have the same error. It’s not an error on a specific device, it’s a internet problem, this problem is everywhere, pc, tablet, smartphone etc….
@casino Originally you reported that the problem was only for your PC, not on any other type of device. And that was why you suspected that it was an outdated Windows XP problem.
Admittedly there is a problem, but we have to identify where the problem is first. The problem cannot be fixed until the root cause is found.
I have to say that this is not a router problem by itself. Because if it is a router problem by itself, then all of our users will be complaining madly. And since we are not able to reproduce the problem, there’s no way to find a “fix”.
Because originally it was a problem only for your PC, and now it occurs on all of your devices, something must have changed from then to now. Most likely, it has something to do with your network (Internet Service Provider), or has something to do with your device(s) in particular.
@casino Let me do a bit more analysis.
First thing you need to find out is whether the problem is device dependent. If it’s device independent, then all devices, no matter it’s Windows, tablet or phone, will exhibit exactly the same behavior. I.e., if on Windows you see 5 minute on/off cycles, then you’ll see 5 minute on/off cycles on other devices. When you can surf the Internet on Windows, you can surf the Internet on other devices at the same time. When you are blocked on Windows, you are blocked on other devices at the same time.
If the problem is device independent, then you need to do some tests to see what kind of network problem it is.
If the problem is device dependent, for example, if Windows behaves differently from other devices, then you need to figure out what differences there are between the different devices. If this is the case, then trying to troubleshoot at the network level is a waste of time. Because that’s not where the problem lies.
When i set my modem in Bridge Mode, what option i have to set?
UBR Without PCR? UBR with PCR? CBR? Non Realtime VBR? Realtime VBR?
Incapsulation Mode: LLC/SNAP-BRIDGING? VC/MUX?
I hvae a PPoE connection
Maybe this is the problem. Not into pcwrt, but into the modem.
Ok, i’ve found the problem.
With just my modem, without pcwrt, internet is PERFECT, i’ve tested it for 2 days, no one problem, internet is constant.
When set my modem in Bridge Mode and connect pcwrt to it, i have the problem.
What solution can you give me?
@casino Did you change your D-Link from router mode to bridge mode recently? And you started to have problems since then?
There is no real advantage in running the D-Link in bridge mode. Normally you won’t see any performance gain either. Unless there’s a strong reason to run the D-Link in bridge mode, I’d suggest switching it back to router mode.
Ok, so, help me to connect d-link to pcwrt without the bridge mode.
I’ve always used bridge mode on my home pc.
Ok, i’ve connected D-Link with pcwrt without the bridge mode and i’ve put pcwrt in the d-link’s DMZ for the port forward.
For connect it without the bridge mode i’ve changed in the pcwrt’s internet settings from PPoE to DHCP Client.
1) Under DHCP Client in the tab “Hostname” i have to insert something?
2) After i selected DHCP Client, a number appeared in the tab “Override MAC address” like “78:A3:51” etc…. why? I have to erase it?
3) What UPnP i have to turn on? Pcwrt or D-Link?
4) DHCP server of the d-link must it be turned off?
5) Look at these three images. It’s all right? I have to change something? DNS? NAT?
@casino Internet was working when you configured your network as described in previous thread, right?
If you restore to that configuration everything should be fine. You can do this in two steps:
No need to worry about DMZ, port forwarding on the D-Link router. If there are existing entries, remove them.
No need to worry about UPnP, DNS or NAT on either D-Link or pcWRT.
Do not disable DHCP server on the D-Link
