Hey. I've been using the same ISP now for about 5 years (Shaw Cable). I've always had it hooked out to a router split between 4 comps in my house without any problem.

In the last month, I've been getting disconnected randomly without any apparent reason. I switched routers, which didn't do anything. The cable company has been here countless times and they've replaced our modem about 7x now even though the problem is not with the modem.

It worked fine for over 4 years, but in the last month and a half I just get disconneted every so often without reason, and to reconnect I have to power down my cable modem and restart it. Restarting the router alone does nothing.

Here's my ipconfig /all when I'm connected:

--------------------------------------------------

C:\>ipconfig /all

Note the "IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.102". :tazz:

Any suggestions on what I could do to fix this?

Thanks. :)
