[Networking] Actiontec ECB2500C causing loss of internet connectivity?
I recently added an ECB2500C to my network in order to get a Tivo HD, Roku and Blu-ray player onto my network. I added the ECB2500C and an old Linksys router (with DHCP turned off) and plugged in the devices. All of those devices worked fine.
However, a laptop connecting wirelessly and a desktop connecting via ethernet are regularly losing internet connectivity. Rebooting the router allows both to connect for a short period of time, then they lose connectivity again. Removing the ECB2500C seems to remove the problem.
Thanks for your help. It was user error - I forgot to change the IP address of the Linksys router to something other than 192.168.1.1. Changing it to a different fixed IP seems to have fixed the problem.
