I keep losing my internet connection daily


I am using Comcast Cable service with a RCA cable modem, Model DCM245.  The Comcast equipment is not the problem since if I connect directly to the modem, I can connect directly to the internet.


I started having internet connection problems every couple of weeks; I decided that maybe my equipment needed replacement after 8 years of faithful service.  I replaced everything with the last week with a new BEFSR41 Router and SD216 switch.   I now loose my internet connection daily.  I have to unplug and reconnect the Linksys equipment every morning, then the systems works fine for the rest of the day.

Your help will be greatly appreciated

Take it back and get a BEFSX41.

Had one of those; took it back because it was not stealthing port 113 and several of the sites I use daily, would not connect.
 
After I swtched back to the non vpn router this problem went away.

If you need to stealth port 113, just put into port forwarding.

Re: I keep losing my internet connection daily

I am having the same problems where I lose internet connection every night. I have to unplug the modem and router to get it back connected to the internet again.  Very frustrating.  I have a BEFW11S4 Linksys Model.  I am wondering if it is time to upgrade the router?  How long is their lifespan?  I have had comcast out a couple of times and everything is running fine from their end.

I am having the same issue with a Linksys RVS4000 and Comcast Modem SB5100. I lose internet anywhere between every 4 hours to every 24 hours. If anyone has any information on this issue it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, -Mike De Haan
