My Linksys ADSL2 Gateway & Switch has been playing up for quite some time – intermittantly computers couldn’t see it at all or the connection would come and go. Last week it started getting a lot worse until it finally died yesterday. The modem part was fine (lights on) it’s the ethernet switch part which had the problem noone could ‘see’ or ping it. I’ve had it about 3 years.
I bought a new one yesterday a Billion ADSL2+ Router BiPAC 5200 it was only $70 the prices have certainly come down since buying the Linksys. It was very easy to setup for direct access to the Internet!! I had more problems getting my Netgear wireless access point to work with the Billion. It’s all fine now though 🙂
