    we have att dsl with a new d-link wireless modem and i keep losing my internet connection every 4-6 hours. all i have to do is unplug the power from the modem for 30 sec to get back online, but this is quite annoying. i have tried running a wired connection to the router as well as wireless and i still get this problem. anyone know what i could do to fix this?

    Is the router getting really hot?
    Can you ping the router when the net goes down?
    Check for firmware updates for the router?

    My AT&T DSL used to do that all the time with a Westell modem and Linksys router. It always came back on its ow though.

    Haven't noticed it lately.

    Might want to try a new router? My gf had a lot of problems with her DSL connection and I could not figure out what was wrong with it. I just bought her a new router and it fixed the problem.
