Is there a way to test a wired router?
I have had problems with my Internet connection "hanging" just doing nothing for a couple of minutes - then coming back.
Just last week the cable company installed all new lines from the street through out the house and a new modem - so I thought my problem was fixed.
But it still happens at times.
I am now wondering if it could be my router. I have a D-Link EBR-2310 Ethernet Broadband Router and it is a bit over 5 years old and I will happily replace it if that is the problem - but I am wondering if there is a way I can test it to find out if this is the problem or not. It happens with both computers I have on the network - so it is not just one port - but maybe the router has had its day.
So is there a basic test to see if the router is still good?
