I have a two computer home network. The issue I am having is that the internet keeps dropping out about every 20-30 minutes or so. It only cuts out for 10-20 seconds, and doesn't require a restart of the modem or router. Its annoying though because it will time out whatever page I'm viewing or boot me off whatever game I'm playing. Details: The problem seems to occur more at night oddly enough. Sometimes the connection drops from both computers simultaneously, sometimes it drops from just one of them. Both machines are running Window 7 Pro (legit copies), and connected via ethernet to a Linksys WRT54G Router, which is connected to a Webstar cable modem. I thought that maybe somebody was mooching my wireless in the apt complex (even though its secured) so I tried disabling wireless access, but this hasn't fixed the problem. I called the cable company and they claimed things were fine on their end, but its Charter Comm and I hate them with every fiber of my being. I'm going to update my router firmware when I get home from work, but I updated it like 2-3 months ago so I'm pretty sure its up to date. This problem just started about 2 weeks ago. I looked on the boards and it seems that Windows 7 has some network issues, but I'm not sure if it is really OS related because both computers usually drop at the same time. Although Charter denies it, I feel certain it is on their end. I'm in the mountains and we've had over 100 inches of snow this year, do you think water/ice is affecting the line somewhere? Thanks in advance for any help/support/advice!
