    Angry Linksys router problem again!

    I don't know if this problem has been discussed here yet. I couldn't find anything though.

    My problem is that the Linksys 4 port Cable/DSL router just stops forwarding HTML and a lot of other packages. In one case, it stopped forwarding everything. Let me start from the beginning.

    About a month ago, my router stopped working. I had no problems pinging it, but I couldnít ping my GW or DNS servers. I tried to re-flash the router with the latest firmware. Didn't help, I of course resetted the router. After trouble shooting it long enough, I called tech support. They sent me a new router. That one was totally dead. Tech support sent me a 2nd router. That one was tested by tech support and when I got it was working fine. After 2 weeks of usage same thing happens but not exactly the same problem. This time and can ping my GW but not my DNS servers. In ďstatusĒ everything looked fine. I couldnít reach anything on Internet but MSN messenger worked???? I couldnít log on to hotmail to read my mails though. I resetted the router but this time I havenít tried to re-flash it. It has the latest firmware. I still have the 2 bad routers here, because linksys havenít gotten back to me about returning them???? I really donít care as long as they donít charge my credit card. But this time I wanít to trouble shoot some more. Anyone got any tips for me, or have a similar problem?

    BTW Iím on Comcast @home in the Trenton area.

    Flashing the router seemed to work. Everything is back to normal now! Thanks for your help.

    Dunno if this helps but make sure your router is plugged into a surge protector! My friends cable modem died cause he had it on a normal plug durring a thunderstorm
