    Recently we got a new router (D-Link) and since then I've had trouble with my Internet connection. I'm on a Macbook Pro running OSX 10.5.8, and my roommate is on a PC and she hasn't had any issues with the Internet. I also never had any issues with the old router (Linksys). My connection will be fine for a day or so, and then it will go out, usually when I've already been online for a while. Once it goes out, turning Airport off and turning it back on fixes it for exactly 10 minutes, and then it goes out again. Resetting the router fixes it for a day or two. When the Internet goes out, it still shows that I'm connected to the network and have full signal, it just won't load any web pages. I've tried completely restoring the router to factory settings and doing the setup process all over again, and it's still having the same issue.
