I use a cable modem and the firmware on the router has been upgraded. The problem here is the internet will work for a while and then cease to work for everyone including the hardwired computer. No one gets any errors or messages stating that the connection has been lost, in fact, everyone's computer still says the connection is fine and with the wireless it states that the connection is excellent. At first I thought it might be a windows thing, but my friend has an I-book and this happens to him as well. So I'll unplug the router for like ten seconds (which then tells everyone their connection is disconnected) and plug it back in and everything works fine. I have to do this about 3 times a day or more.
I also called my ISP to see what they were reading and everything read fine.
This is a pain in the butt and I was wondering if anyone had any advice for fixing this problem.
