My Netflix Player is connected via Ethernet to a DL601 router, this in turn is connected to my Xyzel DSL modem. The DL601 maintains our PPPOE connection to our ISP.
Everytime we watch a movie, if we leave the Netflix player in the Main Screen, after some period of time our DSL Modem locks up. We lose our internet connection. Resetting the Xyzel modem restores the connection.
The only possible theory I can come up for this is that the Netflix Player is somehow logging us out of our PPPOE connection, or that Our ISP's DSL equipment is disconnecting us for some unknown reason.
Someday soon, I am going to try to get a Wireshark capture of the traffic between the DSL Modem and the DL601 Router.

Now we have duplicated the internet outage problem every time we use the Roku player. My set up is Apple Time Capsule router with Time Warner cable modem service. I am going to call support and request a different unit.
