Windows Xp Pro-SP2, Cable Internet, Linksys BEFSR41 router (DHCP enabled).
Suddenly the router lose its IP address, in the status area (of the router) its only listed as 0.0.0.0
Called the ISP, they said everything is normal.
Tried to connect the PC directly to the Cable Modem, able to browse the internet... (so its true that is not cable connection/ISP problem)
Fixed by requesting the ISP to 'Clear Host'
My questions are:
Why this happened? and
How to prevent it from happening again?
