m having trouble with my small home network. Its 2 computers, one running w2ksp1, the other win xp-pro which goes through a Billion BIPAC-640SE router/firewall/switch sharing a 704/128 adsl on DHCP protocol.
The problem is that quite often when downloading or browsing the computers fails to keep the connection with the servers on the web, It is NOT that the specific web server are down, this happens to whatever server, but I don
t get a message that the internet connection is lost until I unplug the powersupply to the router. When I replug the powersupply its all up and running again and fine for a while…the router should also be accessible through the browser for config, but that also only works occasonally.
The router is on factory default settings, except some ports I have mapped in “virtual server” This means that the router is set to WAN DHCP(which is right according to my ISP), LAN DHCP, and both computers is also set to recieve ip address automatically. They have all the same gateway. I have not specified a MAC-address how do I know if this is necessary…?
Any idea what causes this…is my router crap, or is this there something in the config I`ve missed…?
