My router losses its connection to the internet, somewhat, several times a day. It doesn't lose any connections, but it will not transmit data. For example, instant messengers and games will continue to operate, but file transfers will stop and i am unable to load web pages. After a few minutes, everything starts working again.
The computers are configured with static IPs, there are no IP conflicts and DHCP is turned off on the router. The internet connection is cable and the router is a Belkin F5D7230-4.
The problem seems to have started happening when I configured static IPs. I didn't use it much before that, so there is no way of knowing for sure.
Any advice on how to fix this, or do I need to just get a new router?
