We are having a problem with our email running through an Exchange Server. The email will work fine for days then just stop working.   We rectify this by unplugging the DC cable from the router and reattaching.   Router then boots up and the email’s start coming back through.
We are using MS Exchange Server 2003, Outlook 2007.

It may or may not be helpful - but I have attached a couple of screenshots

The DNS error appears unrelated, but go through this to figure that out:

For the email flow, there's something wrong with your router. You should probably repost this question in a different section, but what kind of router is it?

It is a Belkin Router.

Just a little SOHO box? Replace it. Not even worth trying to troubleshoot for the cost of a new one.

A belkin router is not a SOHO router - it's a HOME router.  You have a business.  Get an appropriate router/firewall (which means spending $300-800 depending on the feature set, brand, and quality.  Not $30 at Staples.  (I walk into too many businesses that don't understand the value of an appropriate firewall and I've started to tell them if they want me as their consultant, they'll replace the inappropriate equipment).
