I have a small LAN setup which consists of a Linksys Router, D-Link ehternet switch, a server (server 2000 OS), a 3-co fax server and computers connected through wired as well as wireless connection. I have a Linksys WAG 120N router providing internet access through wired as well as wireless connection to my computers within the LAN, I have 7 laptops connected wirelessly to the internet through the Linksys router, and I also have a D-Link 10/100 fast ethernet switch connected to the router through a CAT 5 cable through which the wired connection are given to the server, fax server and a printer.
The problem is frequently every 1 hour/later my internet connection drops disabling internet in all the computer connected to the router, I have checked the router the internet light will be blinking on the router an either I will have to restart the router or have to wait for some time to get back the internet access. I am unable to figure out where the actual problem is, either is it with the internet connection or the router, I spoke to my ISP and they made an line check and everything is fine with them. I unable to figureout the problem weather is it with the internet connection or is with myrouter, Below are the details of my router configuration.

Router configuration

Protocol: PPPoA
Encapsulation: LLC
Channel: 6
Beacom Interval: 50
DTIM Interval: 3
Fragmentation Threshold: 2306
RTS Threshold: 2306

I would appreceate and will be thankful to get any suggestion or help for sorting out my problem,
Thank you

What type of linksys router is it? If it's a SOHO router, it might not be able to handle that many clients. Are you using third party firmware with it and if so, can you check the CPU/memory utilization?
