This is interesting topic. Could you describe hardware used for this?

If you have some kind of modem, you could try to "shock the monkey". I.e.
power off all the devices and turn them on one by one, starting with modem,
then wireless router. Arp caches have to be cleared from time to time. For
cable modem with ethernet connection for you desktop, you have to reload
that modem if you want to change computer or the ethernet port.
I'd like to know how do you resolve the problem. Is it possible to get
error message from 770?
