This is a reoccuring problem that has happened ever since I got this new router. This wireless router is a D-Link DIR 655. So far it is the best modem because all the others overheated, disconnected etc. Now the problem with this one is very unstable internet. Occasionally, it will disconnect me from the internet and when I diagnose it, it will show that my default gateway is unavailable. My setup is computer to Router (D-Link DIR 655) to Modem (SB5101 SURFboard Cable Modem) to Shaw Internet. Is this a common issue and if so how would I fix it? I would love some help because I can't use my internet effectively with this bug...

The router is losing its connection to the modem/ISP or the computer is losing access to the router?

And other computers connected to the router? If so, do they disconnect? At the same or different time?

The more dominant problem that occurs is slow internet. There seems to be nothing wrong but the internet loads pages very slow. I am pretty sure it is not my computer. The disconnections occur rarely and if I connect to the modem directly, the internet works fine.

Have you tried performing the latest firmware update to your router? if there is a newer one I would read about what the fixes are for it...if that doesnt help then maybe you should take it back and get a netgear or Linksys....
