Want to know: is there some signal an ISP can send to your router that will disable it? Some ISPs don't want their users sharing the internet, and I've heard rumours that there is actually some sort of signal they can send out to disable the internet on their routers.
If so, this may be happening to me: I have a wireless router set up so I can have the internet in my living room, but every now and again (about 3 or 4 times a week), I loose internet completely, and the router is unable to reconnect. It gets some error like "cant get ip address" or something. The only solution is to unplug the router & modem and plug them back in.
Anyone else ever heard of this? Any details you can point me to on this mysterious signal? Any details I can look up? Any solution to stop the drops anyone can offer?
