    Alright, I installed 1.25 about 2 weeks ago and just a couple days ago this strange problem has been occuring.

    I have two computers connected to this router both windows 7 and we have never had problems since before a couple days ago.

    Randomly, one of the computers will lose connection to the router completely, not internet, no access to the router IP, with not changes to the router or computer when it happens.

    The other computer still works just fine.

    The best fix I can come up with is to remove the ethernet cables from the router, power cycle it, and plug them back in. The other computer takes some time to get connected to the internet again though.... the fix for that is to remove the network card from the device manager and then reinstall the drivers.

    Using 1.23 firmware now, and it does the same thing.

    The fact that one of the computers works fine points to a fault on the other PC. Try swapping to another network card. Check the cables. Check that it still has an IP and a lease when this happens.
