I have a problem with my Peplink Balance 20 in that if I leave it alone for too long I then can’t connect to it unless I unplug it and plug it back in again. It’s in this state as I write this. There is no issue at all with routing to the Internet and my LAN - that works fine. But my browser says that it can’t connect to the web interface. Both Firefox and IE fail. Also I just checked and I see that the status is “offline” in InControl2.
If I power off and on the router I can then connect no problem. If I use the admin interface at least every couple of weeks it seems to be fine. If I ignore it for more than a few weeks it goes into a complete sulk and refuses to communicate. I don’t have a many devices in my LAN and for sure the Peplink router is the only one with it’s IP address.
This is not a new issue. It has been happening for a couple of years - I think it’s always been there. I never got around to asking for help before.
I really don’t like pulling out the power lead and any ideas would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
ps I am using a wired connection through a switch and I have tried rebooting the switch but that has made no difference.
pps I can ping the router no problem.
