    I have a problem that I am growing quite tired of. I have 3 boxes and a PS2
    hooked up to a standard 4-port Belkin Cable/DSL router (using cable).
    Randomly the router will just stop getting connectivity. It isn't the cable
    modem because if I unplug a eth cable from the router and go straight to the
    modem, I get throughput instantly (sometimes I have to disable/enable my

    This happens on all 3 boxes simultaneously, so it isn't an OS or machine
    issue. I have checked all settings in the router and found nothing that
    could be causing this.

    Any ideas? Is it just a shit router? I am thinking about getting something
    substantial next time (maybe a Fortigate 50A) since I am going to add 2 more
    boxes, an Xbox, and maybe one day run some kind of server so the all-in-one
    features of the FG are great.

    I haven't called Belkin yet because I am not interested in being accused of
    user error right off the bat.

    Belkin makes shit routers. I took mine back after about 2 hours of hell and
    got a linksys, I have been happy every since.

    Update the router's firmware. It has an update feature built-in.
    That corrected the problem on several Belkin routers with the same problem.

    Let me give that a try. That may be it because I do not recall this garbage
    happening early on.
