    I’ve had linksys products for years now and I’ve always resisted the urge to use aftermarket firmware. I’m one small step closer now.

    I received my WRT350N, upgrading from a WRT300N because of gigabit Ethernet, 4/19/2007 and all was fine until the morning of 4/23/2007.

    My cable provider has a habit of restarting their services on seemingly random days at 3am. I am usually up at this time so I witness it first hand. The morning of the 23rd was different however in that my internet functions absolutely ceased. I did a power cycle on the modem and router which has solved issues in the past but something was different this time.

    I could ping the router, I could ping the modem, but could not ping past the modem. However, I could ping out using the diagnostic tool on the router. Eventually some two hours later I reset the router to factory defaults and everything started working just fine.

    The same thing happened the morning of the 25th.

    This is all with wired connections, it is unknown if the wireless is affected.

    I figure I’ve got another meltdown in about an hour and fifteen minutes so stay tuned I guess…

    Any ideas on what might be causing my issues?

    I was almost thinking that the DHCP reservations in the modem were not releasing and refusing the computers when it came back online because it thought they were already connected or some such nonsense… I don’t get it at all =(
  2. I Had the same problem... I update the firmware with dd-wrt and my problem is fix...
