My internet connection randomly drops. I have 6 computers and one voip running on my network. When the internet drops my DNS is changed from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.2.1 The subnet mask doesn't change at 255.255.255.0. When it does this I can still access my router at 192.168.1.1 but I cannot see anything change with the internal settings.
The only way for me to correct this is to flushdns and release and renew the IP. All machines are running XP PRO and the router is a Linksys WRTN330N Gigabit Gaming Router.
Here's the kicker...it will not do it for all computers at the same time. My laptop will go down with the new DNS server and the other laptop (siting across the desk from me) will still be surfing just fine. This will happen regardless of being wired or wireless.
I know it is the DNS IP issue creating the internet drop because I can type in the IP for google and will get google to pop up on my screen. I just would like to know how to stop it from occuring in the first place.
