HI, I have a desktop hooked to modem and router, another desktop wireless, and laptop, wireless. All worked fine for a couple months, now cant connect to internet through router. All computers running windows xp.
Called isp people, they said change settings to pppoe, i did that, then it worked for a few hours, now not working again.
I checked settings for router, they seem allright, but still wont work. Any idea what i can try, maybe change other router settings?? If i hook modem directly to computer, internet works.
I have already tried resetting modem and router.
Any help would be appreciated.
thanks.

Have you tried to update the firmware on the router?

How many computers are you running through the router? Just the one, or more than one? If more than one, do they all have the same problem with the router that is solved when the router is removed?

As well, you may want to contact the router manufacturer as there is the possibility of a hardware problem if it works for a bit but then stops.

Have you tried setting them all up with a static IP address? It may help as it could be a probelm with DHCP lease times. Just guessing at the moment though. Some router and connection interface specs may be needed to help in figuring this out though. Do you go through a modem and then a router or does the router function as a router as well?
