One possible fix for internet connections that drop out
Authored by: Auricchio on Jul 02, '08 01:09:34PM

It sounds like the issue is inside the router. Either it's not receiving DNS info from the ISP, or its firmware is wrong.

I have seen that Earthlink DNS (at least in my area) isn't providing DNS addresses to the router. As a result, the router doesn't work properly. I either enter DNS addresses into the router or the computer(s).

Why not simply use standard DHCP and enter opendns.org addresses in the network settings? This works perfectly all the time. Those DNS servers are 208.67.222.222 and 208.67.220.220.

Using opendns

I switched to manually using these DNS servers a long time ago because of connection issues and huge delays accessing various web sites. It's worked great for me.
