    My Linksys is working great. Why do you think it's getting "jacked with"?

    Yeah, your linksys should be OK. Maybe go into some detail as to what is wrong with it and we will see what we can do to fix it.

    Its been working fine, but yesterday I had no internet access after looking I noticed it had no IP address from the Router. When I tried to get an IP from its DHCP, it says I"m not authorized to get an IP from the DHCP server.

    So I manually set my IP Address on the NIC to be able to see the Router so I could use the webtools and see what it was doing.

    When I connected to the router I saw the following on my DHCP table:
    I removed the connection, and turned off DHCP, then manually setup my connection.

    I've had horrible experiences with Linksys products. They work okay for a while, but will either die, or start acting funny after a while. At home I like my Netgear 108Mbps wireless router. Back when I was still wired I had an SMC router with no problems.

    linksys products are fine as long as you keep up to date with their latest firmware. When I first had my router, it would hang pretty frequently. A few firmware upgrades later, it's been pretty rock solid. Can say much for my isp though...
