Tenda router issue
I have a tenda w309r router since 2014 and since i have upgraded its firmware it slowly started to behave strange. It does not connect through ppoe connection and the only 2 errors which alternates are:
- please check hardware connection of wan port
- no response from your internet service provider(isp) please consult your isp
My isp says that they can communicate with the modem that is installed in my house therefore it's not their fault.
I had used 3 different wires and ports b/w modem and router and nothing changes.
The LAN port nr 2 of my router seems like is burned as there is no connectivity b/w pc and router when using a cable.
I only use a wire b/w router and modem because my ethernet card is not working anymore.
That's why i can't connect directly to my modem and bypass the router.
So for the moment i only connect from pc to router using wifi.
The question is: can or is it common amoung routers to misbehave by the time goes by and stop respond as usually other than burned ports and other issues related to storms or electricity fluctuations?
