I just moved into a house with some guys a few weeks ago and ever since then we've been having major net issues. We are all big gamers and we use Comcast as our ISP.
While playing games, will randomly (anywhere from every 2 minutes to two hours) get kicked off. The modem and router are not resetting. We immediately have connecting after we get kicked off. But I look at the router logs and all over the place it says:
Get IP Address 126.96.36.199 From DHCP Server => Sun Mar 1 12:37:05 2009
WAN Connection Disconnected => Sun Mar 1 12:37:05 2009
Get IP Address 188.8.131.52 From DHCP Server => Sun Mar 1 12:35:32 2009
WAN Connection Disconnected => Sun Mar 1 12:35:31 2009
Get IP Address 184.108.40.206 From DHCP Server => Sun Mar 1 12:31:42 2009
WAN Connection Disconnected => Sun Mar 1 12:31:41 2009
This happens SO much and is getting annoying. At first we thought it was the router so we hardwired directly into the modem, and it STILL disconnected. So we contacted our ISP, and they ran a diagnostic on our line and said everything was fine. So we went out and bought a new modem, and set it up, and it still does the same thing, both hardwired and wireless.
Here is our hardware:
Linksys Cm100 Cable Modem
Belkin Wireless G plus MIMO
All firmware is up to date. Ive looked on countless forums, see many people with same issue, but no solution. Ive seen a pattern though that it might be the router. But if I hardwired directly into the modem and it still does it, how can it be router?
I don't know, VERY frustrating. Please help. Let me know if you need any more information. Thanks!
