FRITZ!Box problem?

By wompai ·
Hey guys,

I've got this FRITZ!Box, it's a WLAN 7340. And it's doing kinda weird stuff lately... A while ago I had magor connection problems so I've started looking around in its firmware to find some settings I might change. This made the problem even worse so I reset the whole thing and left it in that state. I did instal a password for the network, but that's it... It has been running perfectly for one day... Now the connection quality (which used to be 300mbps) has dropped to 144mbps and dropping. I noticed that my laptop (which runs Win7) keeps trying to identify the network. What that exactly means is a mystery... I have really high latencies in online games like WoW, Global Agenda and Aion. These latencies have ran up to a peak of 3000 ms. Also I can't even acces the user interface of my FRITZ!Box without any problem... With all the internet power I've got left I'm posting this question...

Have you ever powered it off for a minute?

Then powered it back on to see if that helps? Power fluctuations can mess with the caches, etc., and cause problems. Powering off until the capacitors drain and the RAM clears can help.

OK, how do you see this? I mean. is this a system tray network notification or the result of some testing?

I already powered it off. And the identifying is a system tray notification.
