Hey,
This is my current setup, I have a broadband line in going in to a Firewall modem. This has 4 Lan ports on the back which one of has a LAN cable going to the A Wireless Router/ with four LAN Ports on the back. 2 Computers and a netwoprk storage is then plugged in to this.

This has all been working fine until recently when, my internets been dropping out (Problem with ISP)


To sort this i have to unplg the power and plug it back in five minuets later

This was fine but then i noticed the lights on the front of the modem was flashing as if it had connection, but then going blank


This then ment I could not connect to the interent all at all being connected to the wireless router but if i plug the computers in to the Modem, they work fine on the interent (so its not problem with ISP anymore)

If i keep unpluging the power and plugging it back in quite a few times, it wil finaly work

I have RIP eneabled on both routers

Anyone help??

sounds like the modem is failing...contact your isp...
in the meantime try this...
Lets try and see whether you have equipment related problems. In this step, we will allow the equipment to self-diagnose and resolve the problems.

Save all your current work, close all open applications, then shut down your computer ...unplug router and modem

Power up the modem first and after it gets initialized and all the lites are steady..
power up the router...after all the lites are on...
power up the computer

The above steps should take care of your problem

no joy then try this..

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2.

For these commands click on Start.... Run..... type in...CMD ....press enter....to open a command prompt box

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults...type in ... netsh winsock reset catalog .... press ...enter

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults...type in...... netsh int ip reset reset.log ... press ...enter
