nah, it was just temporary. after that i just unplugged the loop and plugged the modem back in and everything worked fine.

I have a Dell router that my Dad got for free with his new laptop a year ago. It's pretty damn good, and very stable, but it was a total piece of shit until I flashed the firmware. I couldn't even run a Teamspeak server off it :mad: .

I would recommend this model, the TrueMobile 2400. It has great range, easy to use config utility (That works in both Mozilla and IE), and it has 802.11B/G support.

Fuck Linksys, they are nothing but problems. I rarely say this, but get my Dell!

Mine randomly loses the internet. The pc downstairs is plugged into it, never has a problem, i'm upstairs on the wireless. I just turn it off and on and ping, back it comes.
