The problems gotten so bad for me I am replacing the router with a netgear one.
When you wake up try checking the network utillity in the utillity folder in Applications to see if you even have a connection to the network.
Also see if the router shows a connection.
If you haven't already done so assign the computer a static IP and put in the DNS numbers that should make it more reliable.</strong><hr></blockquote>
I've always had problems with linksys PCI NICs quitting out randomly. Could never get linux to recognize them with the correct drivers directly from linksys's website. I even had some linux gurus (I was a newb at the time) help me out and they couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work. My Linksys USB 802.11b-to-USB adapter sucks too. Sometimes it quits out and basically windows stops recognizing it, and the adapter acts like it's still connected, and when I disconnect it windows still thinks it's connected. Sometimes I need to restart because it disables all my USB (my mouse is USB) and I need to restart to re-initialize USB. I haven't had that much trouble with Linksys routers/switches/hubs though. It's just Linksys's NICs that seem to give me problems. I use 3com for PCI NICs now, and they always work.
