Region : India

Model : TD-W8968

Hardware Version : V3

Firmware Version : 1.0.5 Build 140321 Rel.42949

ISP : Airtel


Hi,
I bought this modem today and after configuring it with details provided by Airtel, I could access the internet.
However, after a use of 2-3 minutes I see that the modem starts dropping packets. Below is status on ping that I do to the modem (192.168.1.1)

64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=309 ttl=64 time=0.816 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=310 ttl=64 time=0.870 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=311 ttl=64 time=0.793 ms
64 bytes from 192.168.1.1: icmp_seq=312 ttl=64 time=0.782 ms
^C
--- 192.168.1.1 ping statistics ---
312 packets transmitted, 237 received, 24% packet loss, time 311341ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.394/0.912/31.043/1.975 ms

You can see its 24% packet loss.

Here's the output of ifconfig

$ ifconfig -a
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 5c:26:0a:44:1c:50

Interrupt:20 Memory:f5400000-f5420000


Because of this the connection is rendered useless for some productive use.

Pl. help

i am also facng same issue with my TP link router TD-W8968, its airtel broadband connection, net disconnecting intermittently only on wifi, if i see ping results its keeps timing out after some time and starts getting replies automaticaly again. it does not happens on the Ethernet cable. only on wifi. few months back I had this issue that time some one from airtel came in and did some setting on my wifi router and that fixed the issue, however after few months my router got reset and I am back to same issue, i called airtel but this time they dont know how they fixed last time.. did any one got this issue fixed, most important thing is its only happening over the wifi and not on Ethernet in my case.
