    My problem is different then those that completely lose their internet connection. When I am using WRT54g v5's wifi connection, I only lose the ability to goto web pages after leaving the router on for a hour or two. When I try to access a website, Firefox gives me some message that says to the extent of "Location has no data." IE thinks the web page is down. At this point, I cannot even access the router at I can repair my wireless connection, but it stops at the part where it tries to Refresh my IP addy. Plugging my laptop directly to the router with a cable still doesnt work. Its like the router froze up. However I can still ping the router just fine.

    The strangest part is that after this happens, I still can be chatting on IRC and downloading torrents just fine. Its only accessing web pages that is affected.

    Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? I set the router to WPA2-PSK + AES, SSID broadcast on, and I tried changing the channels to 1, 6, and 11 but I doubt something is interfering with the wireless signal since its only web surfing thats affected.
