Re: [BC] BB50 disconnecting every hour in vancouver

Sounds like maybe there is a DHCP issue on the router. I'd log in and see how long the router's DHCP leases are set to. If it's 1 hr, then that is likely the problem. Windows 7 doesn't like that...

How many internet devices do you have? Does it happen on all of them? Or just this one?

I have 2 machines that use this gateway, and occasionally my laptop. My main machine is plugged directly into the gateway via ethernet and the other machine is wireless, however, the wireless is quite bad, i can have my laptop sitting right beside the gateway and it will still drop the connection every 10 minutes.

You should have two IP address available on your account, have your modem bridged (you will lose the wireless), and see if it continues to happen.
