Lately, my Internet connection has been timing out a lot and I believe the reason for it is my router, which is a Linksys WRT54G. In order to connect myself back to the Internet, I have to unplug my router then plug it back in. This router is about 5 years old; do I need to buy a new one or is there a way I can reconfigure its settings so it doesn't keep timing out?

Did you test the computer directly on your ISP modem by wired to check on the problem?

I don't believe my modem is the problem; it's the router. What should I do about it?

What do you mean about your last post? If after connecting directly to modem and the problem persist, I suggest contacting your provider.
