Hi all,

I'm with VM cable 20Mb and for the past couple of months/weeks I've been experiencing internet problems which have been getting worse and worse. It used to be once or twice a week, now it is almost several times a day.

I have found that the only way to get connectivity back is to log on to the router's web interface and release/renew the internet IP address. This gives me connectivity instantly.

What does this mean? Is it a problem with VM or a problem with my router?

Note: this problem happens on both of my Linksys routers:
  • The older WRT54G
  • The newer WRT54GC

I have heard reports of people saying that linksys routers are prone to dying for no reason after a certain time, so I'm not sure who/what to blame.

Any help is most appreciated.
