Modem stops working after half an hour

I have got a modem from Dlink which I am using it from quite a long time. Earlier the issue was appearing rarely but now, it has become permanent. The modem only works for 30 to 40 minutes and then it drops the link LED. The Internet LED turns red from green. Doesn’t recover thereafter, no matter how long I wait. The only solution I have found is I have to turn the modem off and wait for a few minutes and turn it back again. Then the modem will work smoothly but only for another twenty or thirty minutes. Sometimes just a restart will do the job. I don’t even need to wait for few minutes. Do anybody know what is happening? Is this due to self heating?

Since your D-Link router appears to be malfunctioning, try doing a complete power cycle of your modem and router. First, turn off your router and then followed by the modem. Wait for about a minute or two. Next, turn on the modem first and allow it to boot for about 30 seconds. After that, turn on the router and also wait for about 30 seconds.

After this, check your connection. Some users also have this problem and were able to fix it by doing the power cycle of the modem and the router. The following are the meaning of each color of the LED on the router:

  • * Green – the link rate or quality is best.
  • * Amber – the link rate or quality is better.
  • * Red – the link rate or quality is good.
  • * Ethernet LED – a solid or steady light signifies that the Ethernet port is linked and will be blinking throughout data transmission or while you are using the internet. It also indicates that the wireless segment is ready.
  • * Power LED – a solid or steady light signifies that the device is receiving power.
  • * PowerLine LED – a solid or steady light signifies that the device is connected to the PowerLine Network.

Additionally, if it continues to have the red LED color, you should try to contact your internet service provider. The red color on the LED could mean a “no connection” status to the ISP or it cannot establish a direct connection to the ISP.
