    Hi guys,

    I've been using a Linksys E3000 router for years. Currently having Toastman firmware on it. My network setup is DSL comes to Bell modem (built-in wireless router) and them to Linksys as main router for wired and wireless. Recently I noticed that after a power outage or manually disconnect the power to Linksys, the router will lose the internet connection. In the status page, it do show that it has a valid WAN IP. I tested on Bell modem side, everything is fine.

    I tried restart, reset, no luck. Only way to recovery is to reflash the firmware. Then, everything will go back to normal.

    Anyone has ideas what's going on with my router or anything i should look at in settings?

    Thank you so much for helping!!!!!

    on Basic -> Network your router (E3000) is set to WAN Type DHCP right? :)

    Yes, that's for sure.

    Everything was working perfect before power lost.

    Victek is asking you a question, not telling you to adjust a setting. He's asking you "are you on an IPv6 connection using DHCPv6-PD"?

    If you didn't adjust IPv6 settings or you don't know what I'm talking about, then surely not ... I said it because the same problem occurs to some users connected through DHCPv6-PD using Tomato.
