stops working after a while


although i haven't seen how long it takes, after a while the virtual router drops connections and any subsequent connections are unable to complete, it usually requires a system restart to start it working again. i've noticed this occur from within a day of starting virtual router to a day and a half or two maximum.
OS = Server 2008 R2 (i think it's only available in 64 bit, so yeah, 64 bit)
Wifi card: "RT73 USB Wireless LAN Card" aka Edimax something or another.
if you need any further details, feel free to contact me.

This looks to be an issue in Windows, not Virtual Router.

I have the same problem, but not always. I also had it with Connectify so that's why i switched to Virtual Router, but I think it's a bug in Windows 7. I also noticed that I have over 100 tunnel interfaces when I run ipconfig in cmd. Contact me if you want the log.

I'll look into this when I get a chance. I don't think MS meant for this feature to run days on end, but really it should still work. Further information would be useful for troubleshooting.

hmmm, well, i haven't used it in a while (moved on to two NIC's 1 connected to a wireless router and 1 connected to internet (my uni network needs this kind of treatment to comply with what i want)) and i'm away from that computer for the summer, but i could try to give you whatever info you want from memory, just let me know what you need, i'd still be happy to help.

I had the same issue. It worked for a while, then it stopped. Connectify I used also, the mobile/tablet can not get the ip address.
