Linksys WRT54GL and 2wire 3800 HGV-B, connection dropping

    My netgear router died and so I picked up a Linksys WRT54GL off Newegg. I have upgraded to the most current firmware on it. It is model v 1.1.

    We have AT&T U-Verse and we are all hooked into a 2Wire 3800 HGV-B. My bedroom has two PCs with LAN cards, both are now hardwired into my new Linksys WRT54GL. I don't like wireless so I never use it (I always disable it).

    When I hooked it up, it would not connect to the Internet at all. I put it in the same place my old router was, same wire configuration, and it would not connect. I had to change the IP address of the router to I saw this on a forum. After that, it worked. However...

    Connection drops every 5-10 minutes. Sometimes it does not drop all day. Sometimes it drops completely at night. Half of the time it will come back after a few minutes, about half the time I have to reset the Linksys router. It doesn’t matter which browsers I am using. The connection drops off completely, to both computers in my room. All downloads will stop, etc. I have swapped out cables just to make sure. Keep in mind, everything worked fine in here till the netgear router died, never had any problems.

    Once it goes down, I cannot ping any websites or even download anything. It’s a complete connection drop. Here are some errors that Google Chrome will show though:

    Error 101 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_RESET): Unknown error.

    I do not know what to do anymore. There is probably some configuration somewhere that I need to look at, I just don't know what. The netgear router I had worked right out of the box, no problems, no configuration, no nothing. But this Linksys thing is more problems than I have ever encountered.

    Can anyone help?

    Here is also another error that pops up:

    Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): The server could not be found.

    Then I reset the router and it will fix it temporarily.
