    In some mornings I see lost connect to the internet. Looks like you change my IP without providing a new one.

    DHCP Release/Renew does not help, only power cycling.

    I use WRT54GL router with Domain Name: Login Type: Automatic Configuration - DHCP

    Hi @gorgonaus, welcome to our community!  I'm sorry to hear you are having trouble with your services. Since many things can cause an intermittent connection it's unlikely the cause is the exact same as the user whose thread you commented on. I've split your comment to its own thread so we can focus on resolving your issue.

    Let's start with some basics;

    Have you recently tried rebooting your modem and router?

    Is the coaxial cable firmly connected to the modem and wall outlet?

    Is there a splitter or filter on that coaxial cable you can bypass?

    Hi William, thank you for the basics! My answer is: everything is connected and works fine except the following - your server resets my IP during night hours and does not provide a new one. DHCP Release/Renew commands do not work. One or more modem's power off/on cycles restore communication and I have the new IP, see responds for DHCP Release/Renew commands and have no problems until next morning.

    Thank you for that information @gorgonaus. Is it possible to bypass your router, reboot the modem to release the router information to see if the connection drops with the modem hardwired?

    Hi Steph_s, after I reboot the modem everything usually works, therefore I can't reproduce the problem.

    Understood. Upon running further diagnostics, I am not seeing any signal issues. Have you checked your router for firm ware updates?

    What I would suggest is bypassing the router, connecting the modem directly to the computer and testing the connection to see if the issue continues. If the issue is still occurring, please let us know.

    Steph_s, since last time everything works fine (I did not change anything on my end). Hope you could fix the problem. Thanks!
