Re: Problem in cisco 1700 router

What do you mean with losing connection?

Is it the LAN-interface or is the ADSL connection dropped?

In case of the ADSL-side you do not need to worry. I have observed this behaviour also. Could be a providers issue or IOS-related.

The advice for this is: Stay current with your IOS release.

I have never seen a LAN interface losing connection. Normally this should not happen.

It is the ADSL connection drop. I'm using IOS ver 12.0. Is it good enough??

I have used 1700s on a couple of occations and have not had any "over heating" issues. I have even had them in some un-friendly closets where they were exposed to higher then ideal heat levels without problems.

Best of Luck,
