    मैले अफिसमा Tp-link ADSL router प्रयोग गरेको छु । मेरो htc one s मोबाइलमा wifi पासवर्ड सेभ गरेर समेत राखेको हुन्छु तर कहिलेकाहीँ wifi search गर्दा signal नै देखाउँदैन त्यो wifi को । त्यही नजिकका अरू wifi signal देखाउँछ तर अफिसको आफ्नै wifi को signal चाहिँ देखाउँदैन । अरु साथीहरुको मोबाईलमा भने देखाईरहेको हुन्छ त्यो पनि । मेरो मोबाईलमा मात्र देखाउँदैन । wifi name change, password change गर्दा पनि हुँदैन । पूरै रिसेट गर्दा पनि हुँदैन । अचम्मको कुरा २-३ दिन पछि भने आफैँ चल्न थाल्छ। कहिले चाहि २-३ पल्ट router मा power on/off गरेपछि चल्छ, कहिले त्यसो गर्दा पनि चल्दैन ।

      Dear Sam,
      Unless your router’s firmware is not writeable which is usually not the case, you should be able to save changes to the router.
      In case of changing IP from to, ensure you have changed this IP and enabled DHCP – might be needed – and then saved this configuration, and rebooted the router. Even after saving and rebooting the router, if configurations aren’t being saved please call your Router’s authorized service provider – in case of TP Link many local ones can assist.
