I have a desktop with XP Pro that looses connection to the network every 2 hours. Power cycling the modem/router fixes the problem for 2 more hours. System worked properly before adding an external ip phone to my TalkSwitch PBX. Setting up the external IP phone required some port forwarding. I have since uninstalled the external ip phones and deleted the port forwarding.
Windows XP Pro SP2
Verizon DSL with Actiontec GT704WGB Router
Computer is direct connect to the router.
2 computers on network, only 1 computer is kicked off
Here is what I have tried:
Verizon Tech support ran malware software--no luck
Replaced router--no luck
Replaced network card -- no luck
DHCP Settings set to Dynamic
Computer is set to Dynamic IP
TCP/IP is set to "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address autmatically"
I have spent at least 40 hrs on with verizon tech support and talkswitch tech support. I am ready to throw the computer into the lake. I have power cycled the router so many times, the switch quit working. Please help.
