Hey guys,

I read that someone else had a similar problem but it was slightly different. After a couple of hours I believe my router boots me off of my home network and I can't get on the internet from either one of my computers. My laptop I use a wireless connection and my desktop is plugged right into the router. I'm assuming that it's my router because when I bypass the router I have no problems. I'm thinking it's just a simple setting that I'm overlooking but as of now I can't figure it out. And I'm using XP professional

IMO...the router is just a pass-through device facilitating reception. If there is a problem with the signal being passed through the router, then it's either a modem or signal problem (ISP).

Have you checked Event Viewer for possible clues?

You say that the signal via the modem (without the router) is no problem. Have you tested both ways for equal amounts of time to substantiate that?

I've had my computer hooked directly to the modem for the whole day and there is no problems. Only when it's through the router I get booted of the internet after two hours. The wireless signal is fine at all times.
