I have a client that has a cisco 678 configured for multiple IP addresses. The cisco takes the first address, a default gateway is assigned via PPPoA to the Cisco. Inside the Cisco is a linksys router BEFSR41W that takes another served address.
The BEFSR41W then does nat for the internal network......
The issue is that if the computer is turned off for the night when the client comes in the next morning there is no internet connection.....
If they reboot the cisco 678.....the internet comes up.....
What is going on with this network
The work around for their network is to shut down the cisco, linksys, and computer using the power strip and turn it back on in the moring....effectively rebooting the CISCO 678 each morning.....
any Ideas????

Potentially a virus on the network that is causing the CPU on the 678 to peg out. Rebooting it clears it up for about 8 hours.

Is it still happening? Do you want to keep working on it?

I have come up with a work around for the CU that seems to be acceptable....I just have them turn off their power strip which has the router and computer pluged into it.....and turn it back on with tthe power strip.......Their corperate IT now has access to the computer, router, gateway, etc. Since they are not paying me, I'm not working on it any more.....Since I have no way to do any testing it is kindof a moot point....So let's just close it.....
Thanks everyone for the help
