Re: [PLUG] Skype, Linksys, Comcast and DirecTV

I am having a weird issue with Skype. Wondering if anyone else has
the same issue?
I have Comcast cable access. Very basic NW setup: Comcast Motorola
modem connected to a Linksys WRT54G AP (stock, unhacked as yet) and
then connected to the 10/100 and 802.11G home network which has a few
Netgear and noname-brand switches.
Here is the issue:
After Skype has been running for a while, I lose my Internet
connection. I can't ping anything off my LAN, let alone resolve any
external DNS. My Comcast link goes dead. The only solution is to
power cycle the Linksys AP and Motorola modem. Only Skype seems to do
this and it doesnt matter if I use the Windows or Linux Skype client.
Have you tried running Skype directly connected to the cable modem
instead of running through the router? That would effectively narrow
down the possible causes of the problem.

How old is your modem?
