Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router
Since starting my DSL service w/ CenturyTel, I've been using a 2Wire 1701 HG router. It's been giving me 2 problems, one old and one new. During the year I've used it, I have find that it drops the internet regularly (especially if I'm trying to download a large file). Most often it re-establishes the connection but the entire processs both irritating and time-consuming. Any suggestions to correct that, or is it the nature of the CenturyTel beast?
More recently, my computer crashed. I reinstalled most programs, including the 2Wire's driver. When I try to use their automatic setup program (found at http://192.168.1.254), I do fine until it reaches end of the process. Then, I get the message "Configuration Server Is Unavailable." Is it something I'm doing that prevents me getting it, or has 2Wire's system been shut down (for at least the past week or more)?
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Try turning off all the other things that are connected to the routor and just use one

2wire is bad

Regarding the connection dropping, maybe likely due to interferences, such as cellphones, microwave ovens (i had this!) being used during downloads.

Try to reset the 2wire by holding the reset button in with a pin for a good 20 seconds, wait for all the lites to return, then try a large download again...if problem is not solved, try http://www.2wire.com/?p=72
if no luck there....replaced the router.
