    Hard to say.

    I had a Netgear router that would reboot itself around 5 seconds after the internet got connected, I was able to resolve it by switching off Wireless as it appeared to be a power issue. I replaced the power supply and all was well for a while but it began rebooting again. I flashed the firmware with a customised version and all has been well since.

    Electronics should not reboot themselves at a predefined interval unless some sort of corruption is going on. Try factory resetting the router if you are able and see if that resolves anything.

    That is strange.

    Doesn't sound very well at all. Is it overheating? I had a fan blowing on mine to test this hypothesis.

    Do you have an alternate solution? Is the router a ISP supplied one that's preconfigured? Or just one you had to setup yourself?

    Well you could try running the router with the telephone line disconnected, and put it in a nice hot place.

    The DSLAM at the exchange could interrupt your connection but can't reboot it for you by remote.

    I didn't think of the filter. Having a dodgy filter would reduce your throughput and possibly disconnect your internet service but would it cause a reboot of the router? Hmm, unless your router is configured to reboot when it drops signal? Mine just tries to reconnect itself.

    Oh yes that'll do it. I had that with my first ADSL 512kbit connection, it would disconnect (but not reboot) quite a bit. I was wired by aluminium and after 30 years it had corroded away and actually broken a connection in places, quite how it maintained any form of connection was beyond me.

    Nice to hear you are now sorted.
