    I have a BEFW11S4 (ver4) on my PC running win2kpro, using Optimum online
    cable modem access- Motorola Surfboard modem.
    The wireless card is in a PC running winXP.

    Last week my machine (hardwired into router) lost web access....wireless ok
    though. Called linksys and they had me reconfigure the router with a static
    IP address....the 192.168.1.* ?default> after all was said and done the tech
    got me up and running.

    I had a 2 minute power outage last nite....(frequent here on Long Island)
    Now I had NO access at all. Called my cable provider who told me I should
    NOT have a static IP address as their system uses dynamic. Again
    reconfigured the IP address to "obtain automatically" This got me online
    (without the router)

    Hooked up the router and of course nothing....hmmmmmm
    Called Linksys again. Thank goodness their support is reasonable. Again had
    to totally reconfigure the router settings this time assigning a 10.10.10.1
    static IP address. They told me not to worry about the dynamic IP address
    for my cable modem....the router will; assign the IPA to the Modem....no
    problem.
    I did however have to reconfigure my WEP settings etc.
    All this from a 2 minute power outage.

    Linksys told me the when the power goes out, the router resets and may need
    to be reconfigured. To go thru what I went thru with every 2 minute blackout
    is insane to say the least.

    Now the question.....Is this with ALL wireless 4 point switch/routers, or
    just linksys?? And what can I do to NOT have to go thru all of this every
    time I flip a breaker or the power goes down for any period of time??

    THANKS!!!
    Matthew

    Now I'm up and running again
