all the time. Otherwise, with each restart, they need to re-associate with one another before you can connect. You also want to make sure you secure your wireless connection (see sticky at top of this forum page). It's not unusual to need to cycle these components off and then back on occasionally but it shouldn't be a daily occurrence. Keep your router's firmware up to date as well.
New to this so here goes. It seems everyday i loose my connection to the internet. Every morning when i turn my computer and cable modem on i can't connect to the internet , ever since i connected up my my belkin wireless router. Does the cable modem need to be left on at all times to keep router working properly, or is something else wrong? Hope someone can understand what I'm talking about. I have a dell desktop, dell laptop, Motorola modem,and a belkin wireless router. Thanks! Something else, to get connected to the internet i have to unplug the router and plug it back in.
