Would a router become outdated after 10 years of use?
I have been using the same router for the DSL Internet provided by AT&T for nearly 10 years. Usually I wait till the power and the broadband link lights turn green, I would start my computer (either desktop or laptop). When the local network light comes green, I would go onto the internet. But lately, I notice many times as the internet is being connected, the broadband link light would start blinking orange, and the connection to internet can be delayed as long as 1 or 2 minutes. One time this light just turn red, and everything halts. It is just not like before. So can it be possible that the router/ gateway is getting outdated, that it is not able to catch up with the speed of nowadays?
