Sudden disconnections with Xbox Live

Hi all,

Been using XBL for several years now with no issues.
However the last two nights I have been disconnected with the following error-

"A network cable has been disconnected / DNS error"

My router, a Linksys WAG54G has all the lights on the front of it flashing each time this happens.
Rebooting the router cures the problem and running the Xbox troubleshooter afterwards then shows no problems.

Has anyone any ideas?
Could this be hardware or am I getting disconnected from my ADSL?

Thanks for looking in

Steve

I think there is an error going on with your router as i dont suffer any problems and i am on rubbish ics.

Thanks for the reply extreme.

It could be the router. I guess if I switch on the error log it may give me an idea.
I could do with a hint or two as it could be so many things......networks eh :roll:

I've been on Xbox Live since Beta which was mid 2002.

Looks like I have resolved the issue.
I decided to replace the cable beteween router and xbox. This was a crossover cable that I needed from my ICS days. A quality straight through cable has now been in use for nearly a week and all is well so far. Cheesy
