    Anyone run into this issue or have a fix for it? Really appreciate any help in advance.

    I have an AT&T Supplied 2wire 2701HG-B Gateway - Software: 5.29.109.11. When I connect my Sprint Hero via WiFi to the router - if I have ANY encryption enabled (WEP-PSK \ WPA-PSK \ WPA2-PSK) the Hero will connect and recieve an IP Address - however it will keep dropping the IP address every <30 secs. HOWEVER - if I disable all encryption and leave the channel open, I can connect as long as I want without any disconnects.

    I have gone thru each available Wireless Security setting - and all five produce this result.

    Obviously, ipod touch, xbox 360, laptops all connect via whatever encryption without error - Hero is only device with issue.

    Spent all morning on it, ready to throw it thru the window, any advice?

    I have a linksys router with all the security I can set up, including the macaddress filter. I have had no problems with my WiFi. I also connect to a couple of other unsecured networks without any hitched. The only suggestion I have is to try the MAC filter on yours.
