Hi all. I just got this refurbished laptop in addition to my pc. I have no problem with my verizon dsl connection until I network this laptop last night. For my router, I got myself the DLink WBR-2310 and my laptop right away pick-up the signal. However, I noticed that the ethernet connection get disrupted many times within several minutes. Someone at DLink told me that I have to request verizon to put my connection in bridge. Is that right? Is the IP address causing this intermittent connection? Thanks.
