i dont know if it is the lease on the dhcp or not nor know how to make it so it will renew automaticly

I have had the same problem. Several times per day, I have to reboot my Belkin wireless router in order to get access to the internet. It will work great for a while, then I lose connection to the internet. After I reboot, all is good for a while until the next time. Sometimes it will be good for a few hours, other times only an hour or less.

I am using a Belkin Wireless G Router, Model #F5D7230-4. I am using a Motorola SB5120 Surfboard cable modem with Comcast as my provider.

same problem, it drops connection intermittently - extremely annoying to have to go and boot the router to make the internet work again

is there a way to put ddwrt on this router?
