Router disconnection issues

  ske7ch 03:12 30 Oct 2007

Well its hard to explain but ill try to break it down.

I would come home from work, to hear from family that they have no internet.

I check my pc to confirm, reset router and boom, i have internet. I figured the modem went down during the day, something on the ISP's end and it just needed to refresh an ip.

Now its been happening maybe 1 time a week.

The weirdest one was tonight, i was playing on my Xbox360 online, and one person said there was no internet. Well i was playing on it, so i checked my pc. Sure enough no internet.

So some how no PC's in the house has internet, but my 360 did. A simple router reset and all was good to go.

Any ideas and solutions would be appreciated, thank you.

Just a question regarding Ambra4's response.

Going and unchecking "Allow computer to turn this device off" does not seem like a step required.

In my situation, its not just my pc lossing internet, it is all pc's in the house. Wired and wireless.

So imo the router settings... or... something of that sort are the issue.

And to check my event viewer... im drawing a complete blank. Been awhile since i did any actual PC or networking work (since high school ibelieve)
