x 250 crashes router

Hi there!

I have a Lenovo x250 running windows 7.

I am having the strangest problem;

 

The computer works flawlesly at work and on any other network than my home network.

 

At home I have a broadband internet connection with a D Link DIR- 818 LW router.

 

My husband has a lenovo x 250 running ubuntu 15,04 without any problems whatsoever.

 

Our smart TV (Samsung) our Nintendo and our smartphones all work without any problems.

 

Starting my computer with a ubuntu Live Image from a USB, I don\t have any problems either.

 

But, when i run my computer on windows and connect to the wireless network, the router crashes after a short while, sometimes after a few minutes sometimes after a little longer. Everyone losses internet connection and we need to restart the router. When the router crashes the message I get is "dns probe finished no internet".

 

I have talked with my IT department at work who reinstalled windows and updated to the latest drivers.

 

Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Karen

Re: x 250 crashes router

Update router firmware or ask in http://forums.dlink.com/ The bug is on their end. Are you sure that it connects in N mode when it works ?

Hi,

 

It doesn't quite sound like the problem described in the link below - and I thought it wasn't a problem in xx50 images but check for this issue.
