Okay. This happens to me occasionally but I just got a call from my brother-in-law says that this is currently happening to him. So I'd like to find out what I can do to fix it.
I have a Linksys cable modem coming in. That goes to my Linksys WRV200 (he has a WRT54G). Occasionally, I will lose connection to my ISP or it seems so. I directly connect a machine to the cable modem and I have access to the Internet. All is well. Yet, when I bring the machine back onto the router it's gone.
Logging into my router shows me that I am not getting a WAN IP (Status Tab). I try to renew it, and I get nothing. For me, power cycling the modem router does the trick to get it back. I just have to wait a couple of minutes before I bring everything back up sequentially. For my brother-in-law, that didn't help. SO, I actually have to really fix it. (....I am lazy)
Is there any suggestions or fixes anyone can suggestion before I contact Linksys support?
