Internet Outage

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I've been having a problem with internet recently. It seems that my internet selectively disconnects itself with certain applications on my home network. For example, chrome and steam cannot load any data (and neither can any computer in the house, 2 wired / 2 wireless) but applications like ventrilo / mumble / skype / world of warcraft / any online game, remain connected and work perfectly. I can even disconnect from these applications and reconnect to them without problem. The only way to fix this problem is to do power down and restart the wireless router. Odd thing is, if you leave it alone for a while, steam chrome etc... start working again. What causes this issue? Is the wireless router dying?

Using Linksys wrt54gs2 V1 and CM 100 cable modem.

Any ideas?

Which router?

I know of a lot of instances where an old/failing/crappy device would hang when opening a lot of connections (like browsing Steam for game servers) and not accept any new connections until the existing ones timed out.

Funny enough, I was editing my post with that information while you were posting that.
