If I recall, there was an option during the kernel config for auto IP configuration or forwarding or something like that. I recall seeing errors everytime the system would dialup the gateway modem and login. It never seemed to effect the operation of the system though, so I just ignored them.

If you are experiencing a problem area then consider posting some details regarding your particular issue. It may not have anything to do with the warning messages you are seeing.

OK, So I think I understand then your router is running as a firewall/gateway unit. When you have the problem that quits working, is between your machine and the router or is it between the router and your ISP? I suppose the easiest way to tell is if you can ping your router from the machine when it quits. If you can, then it is the other side of the router. If you can't then it is the router and your machine.

The problem sounds like a lease expiring on a dynamic IP address and failing to be renewed. When a DHCP server is configured, one of the options on the assigned IP address is the term of lease. It can be 1 minute to 30 days or something. If your router DHCP service or the ISP DHCP service is set for 12 or 24 hours then the lease would expire. If you are using dhcpcd on your box with your router, then it should renew the lease when it expires. On your router, you would need to check manuals to see what it is possible. If you are using dhcpcd on the Slackware box to get an IP from your router, you could look in the /etc/dhcpc/*.info file to see what the current information and lease time from your router is.
