    This is really weird. No big deal but just curious why. First off I am on cable internet. When using a dynamic ip. I could only access the modem page a few times and after that. It would not let me. If I wanted back in. I would have to reboot the router or modem. Now since switching to dhcp static ip in Tomato with my main pc. I can now access it every single time. Any idea why? The cable modem is a Linksys CM100.

    "Release", then "Renew" often can have same effect of rebooting. Public IP may have changed and router still using previous one. You can configure modem to use a non-public ip.
