    Hi guys. Here's my problem. Everything worked fine for almost two years until 12 days ago when my router D-Link DI-704UP suddenly disconnected the internet and couldn't connect anymore. I use a PPPoE connection, but all the info is fine, I already tried to reset the router and configure it again but it didn't work.

    However, if I connect the modem (USR9001) directly on my PC and not on the router I can connect without any problem through Windows XP. But when I connect the modem back to the router it simply doesn't connect, it keeps trying and can't get IP, DNS and all the other stuff.

    I then thought it could be a hardware problem with the router and sent it to tech support for testing and it worked fine there. When I brought it back here and installed everything, the same problem. I'm not sure what to do anymore, any ideas? Thanks in advance.
