I need some assistance with a problem manifesting itself on my home network. I have cable broadband here in the uk which is hooked up to a router which then 'routes' this connection to 3 pc's, 2 winxp machines and a win 2000.
Now the problem I seemto be having is that at random times 'Local Area Connection 10 disconnected' appears on my machine, dropping my connection and then it re-connects itself about 20 seconds later. This is happening on all the machines at the same time as if the router (Belkin 4-port) is re-setting itself or the connection.
Does anyone have any suggestions why this may be happening??
Can anyone think why a router would suddenly start acting strange??
We have this Belkin 4-port router and for some reason it randomly disconnects everyone then re-connects them, and occasionally just locks up completely so that you can't access any of the settings and you have to reset it. Also sometimes it seems to take ages to talk to my card and give me an ip address for the network.
Has anyone else experienced this sort of behaviour??
