Hi I've been using a d-link router as well as another one that came with my rogers modem for several years now. They have both been working fine connecting my 4 computers to the same modem. All of a sudden last week my internet in all my computers stopped working. Thinking it was a connection problem with one of the routers I tried the networks to see If I could still send stuff through the network to other computers without using the internet. I could and the network seemed to be fine but the internet still didn't work. SO then I thought it was the modem but when I hooked up the modem directly to any of the computers my windows xp would say there is limited or no connectivity with the internet. But after turning the modem off for a bit then turning it on again the internet connected directly to the computer would start to work again. Does anyone know what the cause of this might be? Is it a problem with my modem, or my internet service(who I did call and they said that it was nothing on their part doing it).

Mike

From time to time ISP reassign IP addresses to the modem. Sometime the modem and \or router does not make the ajustment. In theis can you need to unplug your router and modem for one minute then plug them in one minute apart. This allows the modem and route to reassign IP addresses.
