If more information is needed I can always upload my backup configuration.
I was doing alot of reading on the forums and came across some articles about how having IPS turned on will degrade the network performance, so I wanted to test this on my network, I've found that if I keep IPS on, everything seems to work just fine.
However if I disable IPS within 2-3 days the router will stop functioning.
My internet connection becomes sporadic at first then stops functioning completely a couple hours after the initial outage.
When this occurs I can't even reach the administrative webpage on the device, I have to power cycle it to restore connectivity, if I leave IPS off, repeat scenario, after 2-3 days it'll lock up again.
If I turn the IPS back on, everything functions fine for days... weeks... months...
Is anyone else seeing this?
other than the obvious leave IPS on, any thoughts?
I'm pretty sure there is a problem here, I just dont know if i'm the only one experiencing this, or if this is a known bug of some kind.
