This problem has been driving me nuts for the longest time. I have a WBR2310 with a wired connection to my desktop using the Sympatico hi-speed DSL modem. It is also connected to a second desktop (wired), 2 laptops (wireless) and a PS3 (wireless). The firmware is also up to date.

The main problem is that my internet will stop working for only a couple of sites and still work for others, for example I could still be on MSN but half of the websites I try to go to won't be working. This stays like this until it self-fixes like 30-40mins after it starts or when I go unplug my router & modem and then replug them, but since this happens like at least every 2 hours it's getting to be a real hassle. The only settings I've fiddled around with on the router are a couple of port-forwards for my PS3 to work. Here is my ipconfig /all info if it's needed

I sure hope one of you guys has the answer for all this before I end up taking a baseball bat and bashing my router! =)

If it's already 1.04 of firmware try to lower the MTU to 1482 or 1472 and check if that will help?

Yeah my firmware is already at 1.04, my MTU was set at 1492 and I lowered it to 1482 and it restarted my router so it automatically fixed my problem (for now).

If this doesn't do it I'll try 1472 and see what happens, thanks for the help and I hope this fixes it for good.
