    Ok so I've noticed for the last few months occasionally my wireless at home would disconnect and reconnect after a few seconds. It didn't really bother me until I was downloading some large work files and I kept getting disconnected and screwing up the downloads.

    I finally sat down and dug into the issue, and it seems from the router logs that the phone is deauthenticating when it sleeps the wifi and that causes my computers wifi to deauth as well.....wtf?

    WPA2 security b/g/n wireless router, d-link 655.

    Anyone got any ideas? So far the only solution I've been able to find is to either keep my phones wifi off (3g at my house? slow as hell) or to put it into never sleep mode (which kills battery). So give me some ideas to try out.

    I've had a problem similar to that before, the solution was to buy a new router. But i doubt you want to do that :(

    also, have you updated the routers firmware recently? That might fix your problem.
