I'm stumped! I installed a wireless router for a customer (Netgear wrg614) and for some reason the wired PC drop the connection and has to be restarted. Here is the low down of the setup.
Before the router the PC was hooked to the internet via a cable modem(comcast) never had a problem, nerver droped the internet.
After installing wireless router everything worked great, two wireless notebooks and one hardwired dell pc. After I left I recived a call the she could not get on the web, the wireless notebooks could but the wired pc could not.
I went back over and this is what i found. Hardwired PC had no DF gateway or IP. I restarted PC and BAM back on the web. Samething happend again after about 3hrs of setting. this time it had a DF gateway and IP. restarted pc and BAM back on the internet. All the while the lights on the cable modem and the lights on the router showed everything was connected and working fine.
It keeps doing this all the time any ideas???
