I run two computers, one from Winxp Pro and the other Ubuntu linux 11.04. About 60% of the time, I have to reset my Linksys Router to get an internet connection. Both connections are hardlined.

Do I need a new router?

My guess would be the router, if I could eliminate the ISP.

Have you tried the connection sans router...connecting directly from modem to system?

Routers aren't a big investment of cash and I've had one go bad before.

Before I replaced it, I would eliminate other possibilities (ISP) and make sure that I'm not the victim of loose connections.

ISP is the least likely. I have had this ISP for years. Loose connections is a good possibility but It works. It could be that we put the computers to sleep when they are not in use.
