    So... my dad went out and bought a wireless router for our home network. It seems to work just fine, except...

    I was browsing the web just fine, then I decide to go play FFXI for a while. When I logged off, I fired up my web browser again, but... it couldn't resolve any of the hostnames. I rebooted, and it worked again.

    Afterwards, I go to bed and leave my computer on overnight. When I wake up, same problem. I can't browse the web. I can't ping any websites. But... AIM and MSNM are still connected and were able to reconnect when I logged off of them.

    So, obviously the router is closing unused ports, but not opening them back up. Anyone had any experience with this router, or had a similar experience and can help me out?

    hmm, try to go into setting and permanitly opening your gaming ports, and your browsing ports... that will always fix, or see if there is a way to change the "port no open" option or something...
