At least...

You no longer need to reboot. :)

In this locked state, can your computer still reach the router?

Have you tried disabling Trend Micro?

Well

Since you can access the router, your IP routing works.

This means that the problem is either the router dropping connection to the internet, or some problems with dns.

So, next time:
Try the pinging I described in an earlier post (to www.google.com and directly to the corresponding ip address). If "pinging to numbers" works, then we need to drill deeper into dns settings.

Also check the status page on your router. Does it tell you anything about the internet connection status?

Don't bother to much about ARP cache

by TobiF In reply to ok

ARP is used to bind ethernet MAC addresses with IP (dotted) addresses.
And, as far I can see, that works.
The error could depend on mismatch due to partial support for IPv6, or different authority levels (where ARP is very low in the protocol stack - close to the system core).

By the way, IPv6 could be involved in this, one way or another. If you don't use it and your ISP doesn't support it, you might be better off unchecking IPv6 in your list of networking protocols...

Anyway, we'll wait and see.
