Unstable Network

Network unstable. I get this quite often. Lately it happens more frequently in the afternoon through 10:30 at night. I hooked a network monitor up and I see resets and null or zero len packets. I have isolated all I can and bypassed the router, replaced cable, Replaced NIC, and made sure that there was no electrical interference close to the cat 5 cable. There are times it gets so bad I can do nothing. The same exact thing shows on both NICs so I am sure it is not a hardware issue in my PC.

Maybe I should elaborate a bit. The interference or what ever it is runs from 3 PM to 10:30 PM. Nothing I have tried has made a difference here. The first NIC is a Killer E2200 Gigabit built into the MB, the second that was added is an Intel Pro 100. The first Ethernet cable was/is new only a month old, replaced with a known good cat 5 cable. My modem would occasionally just reboot itself, so isolated the Hawkins repeater from the network map.

Why would you have a repeater on your network? Are you trying to transmit HAM over the internet? That isn't going to work well, if at all with satellite internet. That repeater may also be the source of interference.

Otherwise that sounds like a modem or TRIA problem, the best thing to do is call 855-463-9333 while you are disconnected so that they can troubleshoot with you.

I do hope you mean you replaced the Ethernet cable, not the main cable out to the dish, there are very specific requirements for those and, it needs to be done by a technician.

Hawking makes excellent WiFi equipment.  Nothing they make is junk, it always works as good as they claim.  Their products are not up there with Cisco or Luxul in complexity, but they do what they say they will.

Hawking makes a pretty decent WiFi repeater.
