    I have a Belkin N1 Vision (F5D8232-4) router that seems to drop the WAN (optonline cable modem) connection intermittently.
    When it drops this connection all the networked computers also lose connectivity to all other networked resources (i.e. NAS, printers, etc).
    The only way to restore this connection is to re-boot the router. For some reason in the security log it shows the re-start date of 12/31/1999.
    If anyone has experienced this problem before any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I haven't experienced that problem, but not infrequently a firmware upgrade will fix the disconnect problem. If there is no upgrade, reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it. Sometimes routers work better after that.

    Of course, I am assuming that you do not get these disconnects when running with a computer connected directly to the modem.

    If those measures fail, you should make sure that direct connections to the cable modem are solid. If that's also the case, then it'll be time to send the router back to Belkin.
