When I hook my router up, after a while out of the blue it says looking up address, for instance right now in another tab it can't find the server at google.ca.
Sometimes reloading or restarting the browser will let me load whatever webpage I am trying for.
The thing is it often works flawlessly long enough to forget about it.
This is the same after a complete wipe and reinstall of Windows XP on my hard drive.

I have also reinstalled the the router CD program several times carefully.
It is a Linksys Wireless-N Broadband Router.
I have my desktop connected by cable and my notebook by wireless
The problem doesn't happen when I'm connected directly to the cable modem.
If you have a solution or advice for my problem it would relieve a lot of frustration, thank you.

What is the model number of your router?
Perhaps try updating the firmware for your router.

I assume hook means ethernet but to be sure, are you talking about wired or wireless connection?

Hi -
Would this be the 160 or the 310 model ??
The 160 is designed for up to XP programs , while the 310 is the upgraded model -
Are both computers running XP , or is your notebook a Vista or Win 7 based version ??

Thank You -
