So tonight I come home to no Internet. I do the power cycle the RoadRunner cable modem, then power cycle the router routine. Then I notice I cannot ping the router. Plug my computer directly into the cable modem and it works just fine. Plug my PC back into the router and the Ethernet link keeps going up and down like a bouncing ball. Interestingly enough, the wireless part of the router works perfectly fine. The router was 5 years old and it gave me plenty of use.
I’ve ordered the Linksys WRT54GL from Newegg.com: hopefully it lives up the same standard of craftsmanship.
