I have had this router for a long time, just recently it stopped working. I have tried resetting it multiple times but it will not fix the problem. What happens is any time I unplug it for 30 Seconds than plug it back in, or completely reset it, it will work for 5-10 minutes than stop. On my wireless device it says im connected but I have no access to anything that use's the internet. Thanks in advance
