Every hour or so my internet connection pauses for about a minute or two and none of the PC's connected to the router can download web pages. They are "unavailable". The ADSL light on the front of the device is still illuminated and the status page on the router shows "connected". Without my intervention the internet connection starts to work again. When the connection pauses I look in the router firewall log and I see: "Ceiling for number of connections reached, dropping packet". I have scanned all PC's for viruses and spyware and everything is clean.. Linksys support have been useless to say the least! I have even purchased a new WAG54G today and that does the same thing. I have upgraded the software to 1.02.7 As a test I turned off the router's firewall this morning and it has worked perfectly ever since. But obviously I would prefer the firewall on even though I am using XP SR2 with the Window's firewall turned on. Connected to the router I have 3xPC's wired, a wireless laptop and 2 wireless music players. What could be up? I'm baffled.
