no problem.

hmm. the strange thing is that it just happend sometimes. no fixed times 
between the problem, or so. but okay that gives me at least a little 
hint, maybe there was a misconfig on one of the linksys'es because 
others had problems with them too.

i tried to ping them, and you're right. there have been problems (-> no 
ping) in case if there were no routes.

hope it was a one time failure. ;)
