Linksys Router BEFSX41

Threaded View

I have the above Linksys router.  At various times I get the message
"unplugged network connection".  After up to about ten seconds I get
the message "connected at 100.0 mbs".  

To determine if the problem if the problem was with my router or my
modem I reinstalled my old Netgear RP614 router.  This router does not
have a built in firewall.  With the Netgear configuration my system
was up for about 18 hours without any unplugged messages.  

This morning I reinstalled the Linksys and within the first ten
minutes I got four unplugged messages.  After each message the system
did reconnect.

My question:
    Is there any way to fix this problem other than buying a new
    Is there any software to detect the location of the problem?
    Is this firm related?   My firmware is version v1.50.9.

Any help would be appreciated.

Call your ISP and ask them what MTU they are using. Linksys default is 1492,
my ISP uses 1452.

I think it depends on you router and firmware version. On mine, it's under
"Advanced" then "Filters" toward the bottom of the page.
