Question about Linksys E3000 Wireless Router
Wireless all work fine, but as time goes on Ethernet ports drop one by one. If I plug a device into the only remaining "GOOD" port all works right and the indicator light show up showing the connection. If I plug into any of the three bad ones the computer shows no connection and the lights on the router show no connection. The good port is port two. I have logged in to the admin of the router and see no place where it specifies the ports individually so see the problem. If memory serves me right, I went through this a year ago or so and then one day they all started working again. I have restarted the router so many times I lost count. I am running dynamic broadband settings on the internet side and appear to have a solid internet connection.
Download the newest firmware for that router (be sure to get the right version number, this is VERY important) and see if that helps. if it doesn't help, It sounds like you have a router that is going bad.

I know that it has worked previously, which frequently happens even though it may not technically correct. When software is changed on one or more computers, or seemingly, enough time passes, things go haywire.
Your cable modem connects you to the outside world, it assigns IP addresses by DHCP (if enabled), to each connected device, so does a wireless router. If you connect the WAN port on the wireless router to a regular port on the cable modem/router, your wireless router will recieve an IP from the first router. Then it will assign addresses similarly which could be the same range, This is known as double NATting. Since you connected the the wireless router as a hub, it only assigns wireless addresses, not wired ones. Since they may be in the same range, this could work, but not reliably.
Here is what to do;
The Network Setup section changes the settings on the network connected to the Router’s Ethernet ports. Disable the DHCP server setting
Wireless Setup is performed through the Wireless tab.
At the bottom of the page click SAVE SETTINGS
This tab is used to set up the Router’s advanced functions. Operating Mode allows you to select the type(s) of advanced functions you use. Dynamic Routing will automatically adjust how packets travel on your network. Static Routing sets up a fixed route to another network destination.
Operating Mode. Select the mode in which this Router will function. Since another Router exists on your network, select Router. When Router is chosen, Dynamic Routing will be enabled.
Dynamic Routing. This feature enables the Router to automatically adjust to physical changes in the network’s layout and exchange routing tables with the other router(s). The Router determines the network packets’ route based on the fewest number of hops between the source and the destination. This feature is Disabled by default.
From the drop-down menu, you can also select LAN & Wireless, which performs dynamic routing over your Ethernet and wireless networks. You can also select WAN, which performs dynamic routing with data coming from the Internet. Finally, selecting Both enables dynamic routing for both networks, as well as data from the Internet.

To get my connection to work, I had to configure my Netopia DSL modem for Bridged Mode and let my router take care of the routing and address assignment. I would also try to get a working connection before configuring security. You can always do that later. You have the order of powering up you equipment correct. Read this link. It works for me.
