877-W + Internet not responding after 20 of Idle activity

Hello All,

I have an 877-W which I have configured, everything works absolutely fine... unless you leave the PCs Idle for approximately 20 mins. After this time the webpages no longer respond (It does that annoying loading thing where by the hourglass is spinning forever the bar down the bottom of the page moves so slowly and you just get no where). You can still ping though, I ping for example and it works... go figure

I cannot understand why its doing this! I have attached my config, is anyone able to give me any insite why they think its doing this?

It doesn't seem to idle if you are using the internet constantly but if you leave the computer on, walk away, watch a tv program or whatever it stops working and you have to turn the router on and off again, at which point it starts working fine again.

Any Ideas????

Thanks in advance.

Try turning tcp keepalives on:

service tcp-keepalives-out

service tcp-keepalives-in

That should help. :-)

Aha, I'll give that a go tonight, is that a global config command?

Thanks John!
