AT&T 2Wire Disconnect Problems


Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone,

I've been having this problem for a few months, and AT&T says the problem isn't on their end. I'm hoping someone can help me out.

My router will drop the connection whenever uTorrent is running, and it happens about once a minute. The router will lose all signal, take 10 seconds to reconnect, and then start downloading again. When it's connected, there's no speed problems, but it usually disconnects quickly.

I've read through all of the faqs/sticky threads regarding fixes, and nothing seems to work. Here's the information that the different pages requested.

If anyone has any ideas, or questions about my configuration, please let me know.

I changed the settings you suggested, but unfortunately the connection still drops just as regularly.

I only use one computer with uTorrent, so I'm not sure if the problem is with that computer or with the router. I'll try downloading with a different computer to see if the connections issues continue.
