    When you first added this network router, did you do a power down and hard reboot of the modem? If so then you may want to go into the Administrative section of the router and verify that everything is set up correctly and there are no conflicts with your ISP.

    update the firmware on your router - you might be able to use the http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php , otherwise just use the manufacturers one.

    I have found in the past with routers that an older firmware can work better than the latest - depends on the firmware/router & isp involved.

    I use the dd-wrt firmware on my lynksys routers and its much better than the one lynksys give you.

    can you go back a version? did you have this problem before your upgraded?

    since your router is supported by dd-wrt I'd go for that - it'll give you a lot more features

    http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Supported_Devices

    installation instructions
    http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php...RT54G/GL/GS/GX

    other things you can try

    use the ping command to work out if network is failing and where

    eg ping 192.168.0.1 -t
    ping ipaddressoftarget -t (keeps pinging - cntrl-c to stop)

    so you'd want to ping your router & other pc's on network if any and then you could ping a website

    ipconfig /all

    prints out network settings, do this and post results to give us more info

    nslookup www.google.com - will translate webaddresses into ipaddresses - it could be a dns failure

    you could also try

    netsh winsock reset - this will require a reboot


    all of these commands need to be used in the command prompt (start, run, cmd)
