I have a  second house and the router keeps shutting down all the time.

The only way to get it back on line is to unplug power and plug back in.

this has been going on for 2 yrs now

PS have tryed another router still NG

Wow 2 years and you haven't called 1-800-VERIZON

to get someone out to check it out? I would start there.

I cannot go into details but 10 phone calls have been made. A few calls just to check out and explained to verizon operator what was happening and I explained I was not at my second house and both times I was askd what lights are light on th efrount of the router. One time a verizon repair guy came to see what the problem was and the router was working so he could not do anything.

As the above poster said have you tried contacting Verizone about this issue?

When you say that the router is shutting down, are there any lights still on it? Also, what model is it, the Aciontec or the G1100 (Here is a picture for comparasin):

Also, do you have TV service? If you have internet only, you could use your own router instead of dealing with the Verizon ones, this may be a better option for you.

The router is a gateway and looks like the actiontec. Lights are on but no light for connection to internet. Im using the verizon connection to stream TV
