    I just moved and got cable internet set up but I'm having issues when I connect my router. Basically it won't connect to the DNS servers after about 30 minutes or so. The only way to get things working is to go into the router setup and do a DHCP release and renew. I've put in static DNS but still have the same problem. The firmware has also been updated. If I take the router out of the equation everything is fine. Any ideas?

    I'm using Windows 7 and a Linksys WRT54GS2 router.

    Make sure you have the latest firmware for the router; then reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

    It looks like resetting the factory defaults took care of it. Thanks.
