I have a frustrating problem regarding wireless routers.

I am a home user that has had to replace 3 routers in the last 4 years. Now I'm wondering whether the cable modem might be causing the problems I've had.

I bought the highly recommended Cisco E1000 on April 4 of this year, and after only two months the same problems have started!

The same problem..router loses connectivity with the internet, requiring unplugging waiting a minute an restarting. Are you finding this has been a common problem?

I thought that buying an expensive router might help, but it hasn’t It appers that buying a cheap or expensive router makes no difference.

Is it possible that the cable modem might be causing the routers to fail or needing to be reset?

Any hands on experience or suggestions with this problem would be greatly appreciated!
