My internet connection periodically just stops. This wasn't a problem for probably two years with the exact same setup. One day there were a series of power outages in town (including our locally run isp), and when power was resored my router no longer worked. Hard connection through the modem was the only way to get a connection. The isp told us that it was a problem with Linksys routers in town and they weren't sure how to fix it. Eventually we called a third party tech help company for support, and they managed to get it to work fine.
That lasted a month or two, but since then I lose connection at least twice a day. The only solution anyone - either from the isp or the tech help guys - can offer is that I should unplug the router, let it sit for a few moments, and then plug it back in. This usually works, but hardly seems like a legitimate solution.
So basically I have to cycle the router manually at least twice a day. Any online work is interupted - I'm sure you can imagine the inconveniences.
What's going on?
PS: I do have the current router firmware and have run a full system scan with Trend Mircro PC-cillin Internet Security 7 (and have it running always).
