I've been battling a stupid problem with my internet connection. I have a G5 a G4, and a newer MacBook. About a week ago my internet connection would drop out for hours. After setting messing around with my router and modem and reseting everything it would work for a few hours then stop again. My connection is provided by Charter Cable, through a Linksys BEFCMU10 V4.0 modem, to a Linksys WRT55AG V2.0 router. If I removed the router and wired directly into the G5 from the modem, the internet connection would start working perfectly. If I went back, reset the router and hooked it up again, I would lose connection and it would actually take the modem completely offline, requiring the modem to be reset to get reconnected. So I decided I would spring for an Airport Extreme Base Station, figuring the router was bad. Well I get home with the new AEBS hook it up, and does the same thing. I do appreciate Apples menus and troubleshooting guides. (The main reason I decided to get the AEBS) Well after going through the setup, it says it is not receiving an IP address. Can anyone offer any reassurance that it is actually the modem. I assume that it has to be. However it working directly connected seems odd. I don't know if it just cannot pass an IP address to a router.
