BEFSR41 often needs to be reset to work with network

    I have a peer to peer home network with 3 wired computers connected to a wired router(BEFSR4 Ver4) and two wireless computers that work off of an access point WTY54G which is also connected to the wired router. My problem is that quite often (at least once a week) one of the wireless computers and one of the wired computers won't access the network until the BEFSR4 is unplugged and plugged in again. Sometimes they can access the internet but sometimes they can't.

    It is a real pain to stop what I'm doing, go down to the basement where the wired router is and unplug it and replug it.

    I replaced the wired router and for a while, the problem stopped. I had thought the old router was burned out. But now the problem has started again. It's pretty regularly once a week. It is set up to obtain an IP address automatically, but when this problem happens, two of the computers can't do it until the router is reset.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Network is set up perfectly. No firewalls connected, etc.
