    Why does this keep happening to me? At random times the Light for DSL and Internet go out and I have no access to the internet. Then it comes back on and when it does the light for internet often turns red. It all starts working after about 2 minutes and it just keeps doing it on and on. I can get on the internet for about 5 minutes then bam it happens again.

    Sometimes it is completely fine but just tonight it has happened so many times I have lost count.

    I don't have a clue why this is happening, does anyone know why is this happening? I don't know what to blame - computer, router or my ISP.

    (oh my router is a Linksys Wireless-G ADSL Home Gateway WAG200G)

    check with your ISP first if they have had any issues at their end then start checking your setup [​IMG]

    yep if its not ur isp, unplug your router and hook it up directly. the thing is u should try to isolate the issue

    Sounds like your router is having problems and resetting, if your ISP tells you they arent experiencing outages its probably a router issue.
