Yesterday I noticed that when I plugged directly into the modem I could get online but when going through the router I couldn't. I tried to reinstall the router software but it said that the router couldn't connect. I then called the router people (it's a Linksys) and the rep walked me through how to have the router clone the Mac IP address and then poof! Like magic I could get online through the router again.
When I came home from work today I found that I couldn't get online again. Fortunately I'd kept the info from yesterday - cloned the Mac IP address again - and could get online again.
The rep from the router company said that there's something going on that is resetting the router which is why I had to do the Mac IP cloning thing.
My question is - is this a problem with the router or is it truely a problem with the cable ISP?
Edited to add - I have had to do the Mac IP cloning thing 4 times today since 5:45pm when I first got online. It's only 8:45 now. *sigh*
