    about 1 to 2 times a day I have to power cycle my WRT54G v6 router because it randomly drops both the LAN and Internet connection on the wireless laptop and wired desktop. when this happens, I can't even access the router admin page ( via the wired desktop.

    i've tried playing with different wireless settings, but nothing helped. I tried with both the desktop and router's MAC address, but the problem exists either way. i've factory/hard reset and re-flashed the firmware, but it didn't help.

    the ISP is Comcast (Seattle, WA) and it's a cable modem (Motorola Surfboard SB5100) and the router has the latest firmware (1.02.0)

    it's definitely the router that's the problem, because the router seems to disappear

    any ideas on why it's doing this and how to possibly resolve it?

    having same problem with a netgear, however I'm suprised you got your router to even take a wan ip from your cable modem. I can't even get that far with my linksys wrt54g v3...
