I have a Belkin router that I purchased a few months ago. I've always had this problem when I make changes to any of the settings and save it, the router will restart and while I can still connect to the router settings, I lose the internet. Any other computers on the network lose the internet as well. Restarting the modem and the router and our computers does not fix it. All the lights on the modem are still lit up. In the past I've given up and walked away for a few hours only to find it's fixed itself when I return. This has happened even if I'm just changing the security password. And each time, after the internet resumes, the change has been successfully saved.
Tonight I was trying to set up port forwarding and it did it again. To try to resolve the problem I connected directly to the cable modem to see if Comcast was the problem. After plugging into it, I repaired the network connection and it worked. Then I replaced my computer's network cable with the router and the router had internet connection again. I tried this series of events several times to make sure it wasn't a fluke and got the same result.
Does anyone know why this would be happening? I'm running Win XP.
Thanks in advance!
