lose net connection when waking from sleep (dually 867 and linksys router) - Mac Networking

    Default lose net connection when waking from sleep (dually 867 and linksys router)

    I have a dually 867 (10.2.8) and a cable modem which has run fine for
    months. I just got a wireless linksys router BEFW11S4 ver. 4. I
    don't have a wireless card for the dually so it's connected to the
    router with a cat 5 cable. My laptop connects to the router fine
    witha wireless card. The dually works fine, but when it wakes from
    sleep it won't connect to the net. I have to unplug the router and
    plug it back in. I open the network pane and switch to manual ip
    settings, apply it, then switch back to dhcp and apply. Then it
    works.

    This is quite a hassle. What can I do to fix things so the mac can
    connect to the net when waking from sleep?

    Got it fixed now. Turns out that the firmware needed to be upgraded,
    as this sleep issue was common before 1.45.3. So there you go.
