I recently decided to purchase my own cable modem (ISP decided to charge rent on the unit they provided), but have since had to reboot my wireless router daily. I suspect the address provided by the ISP has a lease time of 24 hours, since the connection seems to drop out about the same time each day.
At about the same time each day...
- All devices connected wirelessly lose internet connectivity.
- All devices connected to the router (wireless, or wired) can be pinged.
- Devices connected to the 5 port switch on the router maintain internet connectivity.
Once the router has been rebooted, everything works as expected.
What can I do to prevent daily reboots?
