I have three Win XP computers on a home network D-Link 514 and often I lose internet connectivity and sharing.

When it happens I restart everything..including router and modem and it works again.

Then later it might work but eventually it will be down again.

Any ideas appreciated.

Go to D-Links website (www.dlink.com) and look for a "FIRMWARE" upgrade for your router. Once downloaded, open up the routers web configuration utility (type //<ipaddressofrouter> into internet explorer address bar), and usually under administrative tools, you will find the area to load the Firmware update file. This usually fixes most errors on routers.

After following the leads to my firmware I found the complete instructions at the D-Link website.

My firmware was out of date, I updated and all is well.

I never even realized such a thing was possible.

Thank You for the help!!
