    At the small business I work for, a DSL connection is provided via a
    2wire dsl router and Linksys hub. This network works just fine, except
    when a colleague tried to add another computer at his workspace. He
    extended his port with a router and both his computers were working
    fine..for awhile. Soon, internet connection became patchy and then
    dropped entirely. Looking at the 2wire router, one can see it power on
    and then immediately power off again. this power cycling continues.
    When he replaced the router with a hub, the network seemed to remain
    stable for a longer time, but it eventually caused the network to power
    cycle repeatedly. Any idea what is going on?

  2. The router has a bad PSU, probably. I've had a couple do this. Try a
    new PSU for it, otherwise replace it.

    the router and the hub both caused this problem, when trying to extend
    the network. Also, if you're talking about the 2wire DSL router, I
    have already tried a replacement router for that too. Something is
    happening to cause the system to restart.
