Re:Re:Belkin Wireless G Router (F5D7230-4) - One More Time - Cannot due long Posts!!!!
If the router ocassionally loses the internet connection, and it seems as though you've followed the appropriate setup steps, this could probably be a hardware-related issue with the router and should be returned.
OR this could be an issue with either your cable modem or DSL modem from your service provider. See what other responses come in, but I had the same issue two years ago. My service provider gave me an upgraded cable modem that worked fine. What we don't realize is that, cable companies for security and other reasons, make modifications to signal and equipment that can play havoc with PC related hardware.
Good luck, and await other responses.

Thanks for your response. This is the 2nd Belkin router I've tried (Staples swapped it out) and has the same issue - the WAN light starts flashing every 30 min, to 4 or 5 hours.
Staples has now allowed me 60 days to return the unit since Belkin is trying to resolve the issue. Belkin is going to take a new router out of stock and stress test it (preferrably with my model of modem) and then send me this 3rd replacement unit. I am now thinking it may be an incompatibility with modem (motorola SB4200). I may also try to have Comcast swap out the modem.
At any rate the response so far, by both Staples and Belkin, has been quite good.

There is another variable which can lead to dropped connections. The age and condition of the Coax cabling being used, as well as the number of times that cable signal is split before it reaches the modem can have that effect

Sure would be interesting to find out what ever happened with that router. Staples is almost giving it away this week.
Belkin Wireless G Router (F5D7230-4) - One More Time
have you checked the Connection Type: dynamic, static, PPPoE, PPTP that is set for the router? i have the Belkin FSD7231-4 w/Verizon DSL and when i set mines up with PPPoE i lost my connection from time-to-time. i finally changed it back to dynamic.
