    I seem to be having a problem with my new router. Its a WRT54GS and my internet connection is SBC Yahoo DSL. The router will work fine for most of the time, but every now and then it'll drop connection for unknown reasons. I've been able to remedy this problem by pulling the plug on the router and then plugging it back in, but I'm hoping for a more long-term solution. Any ideas?

    I had the same problem and i had a funny solution.

    I called the company (not SBC yahoo) and they came out and had to replace something on the side of the house and on the telephone pole (i have cable)

    Whatever they did fixed my constant drop-offs. :thumbup:

    Well luckily, my router seems to be working alright for now. But I'll think I'll do that too if this problem becomes consistent.
