When ever you switch your router off, you will find that the time
will default to that of the last changes to you made.
To get round this you can set up your router to connect to a time
server and ensure that future time stamps will be correct for such
things as alarms.
You will need to tell your router an address of a time server, there
are several available :-
Plusnet have ntp.plus.net at 22.214.171.124, 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52
Manchester university has ntp2b.mcc.ac.uk at 184.108.40.206.
You can either type in the name or the IP address, however, remember
that if you type in the name you will have to ensure that your router
has your ISP's DNS servers addresses added under Quick configuration
Personally I prefer to use the IP number and for this example I will
Unfortunately the router does not automatically switch between DST
and you have to configure this manually each spring and autumn. To
do this use the following commands:-
$modify sntp cfg disable
$modify system dst off
$modify sntp cfg enable
don't forget to commit the changes.
