Well I've have a linksys 4-port router for a few years now, no problems at all. Over the last week, the router for no reason drops my internet connection and refuses to re-connect for about an hour or so. Once running the internet is fine, until it randomly drops it again. To help solve it, I upgraded the firmware to the newest version, but that hasn't seemed to help. Called up my DSL service to see if it was a problem on their end, they said they have had no problems and they won't give support due to me being behind a router. (he did however say that if I disconnected the router and went from one computer to modem and still had problems, they would help.) So I disconnected the router and am running just one machine in my house until I find the problem (internet now runs fine so it must be on my end). I had the router setting on "keep alive, redial every 30 seconds" instead of "dial on demand, disconnect after 5 minutes of inactivity". Once I am kicked off, if I go to "status" button, it just says "connecting" for a few seconds and then "can not connect to PPoE server" comes up. Log and password have been checked numerous times by me, I've tried re-setting the router, powering on/off, powering the modem on/off etc. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
