I have been having the intermittent problem with my BEFSR41 (ver. 2) for several months now and it's been driving me nuts. Every few weeks or months, my whole network will just completely disappear. I have not turned on the XP firewall, and I have not changed in settings in router. I have Charter for my cable connection. I am running ZoneAlarm but see nothing amiss there. And I do have the latest firmware, version 1.46.02. Basically what this means is that I can get on the internet, but none of my other computers can. Does anybody have any clue as to what's up with this? It seems so random. I will sit and have to run the network wizard on all the computers over and over until it finally works, but sometimes this can take hours, and I don't know why it works and sometimes doesn't (as you can see, I'm kind of clueless when it comes to networking). And tonight nothing worked. If it helps you, for some reason I cannot do any IP release or renews on either my computer or my husband's--no idea why, it's never been a problem before. It says "unable to contact DCHP server." Has a stupid Windows Update done this, maybe? I am totally out of ideas. I am getting so sick of this! Help, please!
