ok... back from another clients. this is a global issue... im seeing this across the board. just tested with windows 7 32 bit ultimate... same issue. when connecting to the 2wire... it will last around 10-15 minutes, then state "no internet connection" on the win 7 machine. (again... the connection is fine. other machines are still up and running).
took a few troublshooting steps.... tried hard coding an ip as opposed to pulling dhcp from the router... tried turning off ipv6... neither seemed to have any effect.
however... if i take the exact same setup, turn off wireless on the 2wire, and add in a third party wireless router.... the issue goes away. so it is definitely something with the 2wire.
addition: ANOTHER uverse customer i deal with just called... same thing. they upgraded to win 7 on release day, and have been having the issue since then (its the first ive heard of it). how am i the first person to have this issue?
