Try recycling the power on your ROUTER.
Then, make sure that the router has not changed the IP address of the hdhr.
Make sure that everything, including the channel standard is properly
set on the hdhr....
Most likely reason is that the router changed the IP of the hdhr. If you
can, reserve the hdhr's IP address by tying it to the MAC, since there
is no easy way to contact the hdhr under linux if the IP address keeps
If you cannot reserve an address, then reduce the allowed DHCP served
range to ONE address, and let the hdhr have it.
This does mean that you have to use static for everything else.
If you cannot reserve an address, you need a firmware upgrade for your
router, install dd-wrt if possible, or a new router.
Please let me know if anything I say offends you.
I may wish to offend you again in the future.
