WRT54GS v7 loses synch with modem

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

I have a WRT54GS v7 with v7.50.0 firmware, which is the latest firmware available. Every once in a while, my router loses synch with my modem. I say this because I cannot access the Internet. If I log into the router via the web administration module, go to "status" and then release and renew DHCP, everything works again. This only happens when the LinkSys router is plugged in. If I connect directly to the cable modem, I do not lose connection like this (I have tried hooking my computer directly into the modem for a week, no problems). Any idea what could be causing this? Thanks. pwc

May I also suggest that you power down your dsl or cable modem for about 30 seconds and then start your wireless router wait 5 min. and boot up your computer. This is what I have to do everytime I move my computer.
