BEFSR41 intermittent connection problems....

    Okay, so I had a BEFSR41 for like 5 years, and the other day, it finally died.

    so, I went out and bought another one (since I knew it worked...or so I thought...)

    Anyway, for the past 2 or 3 months, my internet has been going down an absurd amount...(sometimes once an hour, sometimes every 5 minutes)...I always thought it was the cable internet (I'm on Comcast, and I know several people that have had the same problem)

    Tonight, however, once it was going to every 5 minutes or less, I could take it no longer. I unplugged the router, and plugged one computer directly into the cable modem.

    I've been on for 2 hours, and have had no disconnects (Thus, it is the router.)

    Now...what can I do to fix it? I feel like throwing the freaking thing out th ewindow :p

    try upgrading the firmware...

    if that doesn't help then try taking it back and getting another one,

    I had a dlink box that behaved like that and dlink swapped it and the next one was fine!
  3. no suggestions, but ive got this problem too. tried a couple different firmware versions and nothing seems to correct it...

    the strange thing is: it worked fine for months prior to this...

    ridiculous and frustrating amounts of disconnection
