Verizon DSL, keep losing signal, 2 different routers, same issue
Have had Verizon for several years, no issues till linked up D-Link wireless to serve laptop about 50' away, OK, but then started losing signal at router, w/Verizon svce. people for 2-3 times daily for 2-weeks, finally braved snow storm to pick up combo Modem/Router by Actiontec (GT704-WG), problem persists but easier to regain signal once lost.

There's a lot of possiblities here.If you have a DSL/dialtone lineshare,listen for noise on the line(humming,crackling static,dropped calls).If you have a dry loop(DSL only),connect a phone in place of the modem and see if it has an "intercept" message(like "you have tried to call a number out of your service area" or something like that).If it does,you can use a phone to check the line when the DSL drops(don'touforget to put an inline filter on it).If the DSL light doesn't go out when the Internet light does,it is NOT a problem with the physical line.This would be an issue with the modem or the equipment at the serving end.( I am a DSL tech,and spend lots of wasted time diagnosing and trying to fix problems that are beyond my reach(central office server issue) or that I didn't need a dispatch for(it is cheaper to send a new modem than to send a tech).
1. check for firmware update with the router manufacturer. 2. Try moving the router to a different location. 3. check the age of the router is may not be electronically sound to receive and transmit a signal properly.
This is a fairly simple thing to trouble shoot. If you are losing your wireless signal where your OS tells you that you have been disconnected from the wireless network then there is an issue with your wireless router. If your cable modem drops the data link to your ISP your wireless network will still work 100% fine, however websites will not load, but the router admin page should.
The end all be all way to prove it is not your wireless router is to simply use a network cable for a few days and see if you get the same issues. If it does turn out to be your wireless router there could be an issue with interference and I would recommend trying a different wireless channel.
If your trouble is with several computers in your network, the issue is most likely with the router or networking equipment (configuration or hardware trouble), if it is a single computer it may be a software, virus or configuration issue, or possibly a bad wireless radio card. We have a computer repair shop called 600Monkeys in West Des Moines Iowa (http://600monkeys.com) and commonly see issues like this. My estimate is: if this is the only computer with trouble, and the operating system is running well, it has a bad networking adapter.
Order the Westell 7500 from Verizon. May not be the best, but your love will be easier because it eliminates a device by providing a single gateway / combo modem router.
Speed issues are ambiguos. Call Verizon and have them take you through some slow speed troublshooting.
i worked for verizon for two years and I encounter this problem many times,to tell you honestly,its not with you internet connection since if you'll notice,while you are connected to the internet and you make a call or call someone,its interrupted... Obviously,its the phone itslelf,the signal comng from the phone is different from the signal of the internet...thats the reason why you need a modem to convert the signal coming from the phone line to make it work for internet,,,what I suggest is you change the DSL plan from the Dry Loop to the regular dsl with the phone...
Maybe it is an electricity problem, or it's nearing the end of it's life. I bought 2 routers till now.each one worked fine for 2 years and then never worked.You should buy a new one or check if there's something with the electricity . Maybe a higher voltage
