I have to take out the ethernet cable and reconnect it, or dial it up again. I have to do it multiple times to get it to work (if I am lucky).
I have tried factory resetting it. Upgraded to the the latest firmware. Cloned the MAC address. But the connection is pretty inconsistent when the router restarts, and I have to try connecting the wire multiple times before the connection becomes consistent.
When I connect the wire directly to my computer, it connects at once and the connection is pretty consistent most of the times. This kind of tells me that it could be the ISP, but I am not sure. Could they wire have gone bad, or is it the router?
