Default Wierd Connection

Something strange is happending. Linksys 4 port wireless B.
Intermittently, when I turn this laptop on (this one is cable) no internet
connection. When I check the IP it gives me the IP of my service provider,
not the internal IP of 192.168.1.1XX. I turn the router off, turn it back
on and it resets ok.

Any thought of what would cause this, maybe time to move up to wireless G.

Plug the ethernet cable from the cable modem into the WAN port on the
BEFW11S4 router instead of the LAN port. Your laptop is sometimes
getting it's DHCP address directly from the cable CMTS and not the
BEFW11S4 router. In other words, untangle your ethernet wiring.
