Different sort of problem (at least in my experience). When browsing the internet, after a short period of time (10-15 minutes), when I try to go to a different site (either through bookmarks or typing the address), or if I try to access another area within the site I am on, (like Yahoo, moving from the information area to mail service) I get the error message "Can't connect to server at ***.com" where the *** is the name of the site I'm trying to reach. At other times, the message is slightly different, "Unable to find server at ***.net". I'm running XP with a Firefox browser on a wireless HP 5280 with a Lynksis router from Verizon FiOS DSL. (The problem happens with Internet Explorer, also.)

Here's the weird part. A friend said the problem was with the router, and suggested that I reset the server, unplug it, and then try it. IT WORKED!!! :trumpet: For a little while (about a day) everything was working fine. Then, without warning, the problem came back; I was unable to change websites. I tried resetting the router again, and everything worked fine--for about 10 minutes. I tried rebooting the computer, and that also made the problem go away--again, for about 10 minutes. I tried restoring the computer to an earlier date; again, it worked for about 10 minutes. :flowers: I am asking this question in the working period between failures.

Does the problem lie in the router, like my friend says; it's an intermittent failure, and I should get a new one? Is it my operating system? Is it the computer itself? Or something else. Is there any problem/solution that I have not tried? What do I do? :thumbsup:
