I wasn't aware of any Internet disconnect issues as I was using SingNet. Have the Starhub BB been an issue for long? and is it still ongoing problem?
I'm using Starhub too, never had problem with the connection. I'm using a wired connection from my Dlink router. Could it be malware or some kind of virus causing the frequent disconnection?

no problem for me for many years. if not happy then change provider lor.. see if you'll get better service from sinknet or not.

I'm quite familiar with this perceived 'slowness' and complaints that people always have with StarHub's MOL service in my course of work. And while it might be true some of the time, most of the time it's due to something else..

Linksys has got to be the worst router on this planet.
I use 2 Linksys and it died exactly after one year of usage. Those routers which are made in China is getting from bad to worst.
Now I use a Taiwan made brand called enGenius. Good, reliable and fast.
Have been using it for 7 months and not a single problem. No need to reboot.

dlink di-624+ also damn jia lat. after 6 months it will start rebooting itself...and the reboots get more and more frequent. i had it changed twice and the same thing happened. even lifetime warranty also like that. in the end bought a netgear...so far so good.
Ill hapily admit its not Starhubs fault, and I actually found their customer care pretty good this time, no having to hold and they actually called me back, so kudos to them!
but i would have thought this is a very simple and logical troubleshooting step not just for routers but for everything in life. always eliminate all the extra stuff so that u can narrow down what the problem is. and i'd also expect the starhub customer service to advice TS to connect direct too. if they didn't, then they're not doing their job properly.
speaking of which, my stupid dlink 704p keeps rebooting itself whenever any of my vista computers activates its symantec firewall. i really dun understand why this specific combi always causes the reboot.
I don't use router at home, I rarely download things from the internet. I leave all my bandwith to email downloading and yet I'm suffering from a slowdown.
