Belkin is the low end of routers. Any way you can RMA it back to Belkin and get a replacement?

Imagine the power if you knew how to internet search

Does it have any logs that would report an error? Could it be an IP lease time issue? Could it be trying to protect your system with a firewall feature? Do the computers show why it was dropped in logs?

Is it wireless? Any other people in the area causing it? Microwave ovens or other transmissions?

Did you do any tests?
I read it wrong and answer it wrong too. So get off my case you peanut.

Have you tested the Internet connection without router, means connect the computer directly to modem. If not, then you can test it. This way you can test whether it's ISP or router problem.

It's the Belkin. I had one and it dropped at random about 10 times throughout the day.

Best course of action is buy a new router..just don't get a Wireless N yet.
