    Who is your ISP? Is it your router that is losing connection or your local machine? Are you connected wirelessly? If so have you tried connecting with a wire?

Are you using Vista? If so, an unstable internet connection is usually the result of the router not being able to handle the DCHP BROADCAST FLAG. This is enabled by default in Vista (disabled in XP). Go here to change the setting in your registry and you should be good to go.

If this solution proved successful, please rate my post. ty.

This could be to do with what your using it for.
Different routers are made to handle different types of use.

Hope this helps!

Intermittent wireless connection is usually due to signal issue, interferences, and probably a faulty firmware or hardware.

If you already tried changing channels, resetting the router, and most importantly upgrading the firmware and this did not help we can say that it might be already a problem with the device.

I am assuming that there is no issue with the distance, obstructions, and computer getting an excellent signal strength experiences this.

My garage door light stays on all the time after opening or closing the door.

The light can stay on for a number of reasons .. especially depending on how many features your opener has. If your opener has a lot of features ... take a look at your owners manual and some feature may have been inadvertently activated that keeps the light on.
However ... if everything is set up correctly try the following to help narrow your root cause down.

If you can change the delay time of the light ... reset it to the lowest time value which just helps in troubleshooting. Most are set for 4-5 minutes which is along time to wait if your troubleshooting.

  1. Disconnect power from the unit, and disconnect door control wires from the opener.
  2. Reconnect power only. Light(s) should come on. Allow light(s) to cycle off.
  3. If light(s) turn off after delay time, the problem lies with either the door control or wiring. Continue with next step. If the light stays on, it is the logic board.
  4. Disconnect power from unit. Remove door control from wall, connect to operator via a known good short pair of wires. Reconnect power only. Light(s) should come on. Allow delay time for light(s) to cycle off. If light turns off, it's a wire issue. If not, the door control should be replaced.

I cannot stay connected to internet, my model 2701HG-B 2wire at&t dsl will start flashing red then disconnect me from the internet or my game site, how can i get this to stay fluently connected please!

You might want to try disconnecting everything EXCEPT the power cord. If you still get the red power light (it should stay there forever) then bring the gateway to Radio Shack or somewhere they have a 5 volt DC @ 2 amp power supply and plug it in for 5 to 10 minutes and see if the power light then stays green. If it stays green then all you need is a new power supply! If not, then the gateway is fried. Mine keeps going from a solid green power light to a flashing green power light and I can hear a relay click every 2 minutes at which time a pop-up say "ethernet line disconnected". I tried new power supply etc. to no avail! It is fried after 1.5 years! No more 2wire for me!
