We had a Linksys WRT310N for a couple of years, but it bit the dust a couple of months ago. No amount of rebooting would fix it.

So, in a hurry, I bought a new Belkin router. It was awful, needing to reboot several times a day. I tried upgrading firmware, changing all sorts of settings to no avail. It went back and I exchanged it for a Linksys E900.

That seemed to do the trick, no rebooting, reliable performance. Until this week. I've had to reboot it twice in 3 days, I don't see anything odd in the settings, no loose plugs, etc...

Before I get too far into settings and firmware changes, does anyone have any thoughts?

I have Roadrunner service, 2 PC's, 2 laptops, and various devices using the WiFi with various combinations of Windows XP, Vista & 7.

Is it possible I just have had bad luck with two routers in a row?

It's the outlet that it is plugged into. Are you plugging directly into the wall or a surge protector?

Plugged into a powerstrip...but it may not be the best quality. That's a cheap fix to try, I'll go and get a new one with a little better specs.

I'll try that first and report back. Thanks!

I ask because they kept telling us it wasn't their fault, and that the modem was fine... Been there, done that. And one of the reasons I've suggested going DSL is the DSL customer service can't be worse than what we've got now...
