well, after giving up last night i disconnected power to the cable
modem and it's sitting in the closet unpowered at the moment. the
linksys' still have power. so i'll be giving this a shot when i get

i guess this is quite possible, but strange since it worked one minute
and stopped the next; it is a couple years old though... i 'can' take
the BEFSR41 out of the loop completely as it really isn't needed, but
i'm having the same issue with all three routers. i can connect to
them, but not to the net through them. i can also ping each of the
routers through the router i'm currently connected to.
i haven't googled to see if i can 'get inside' my Motorola modem and
see what the settings are in there. i don't usually disconnect power
from the modem when i've lost connectivity. i just hit the 'standby'
button on the front and let it power off for a minute or so. so i
suppose this could be my problem. any thoughts on that?
