Welcome to BBF!

Let me guess....You're using an "N" type router? "N" type routers have known issues with the BB where it causes the BB to reboot. If you can put your router into "G" mode, that may help.

Well, that's a G type router. Not sure why that one would crash your BB. Check out Main Page - BlackBerryFAQ and go to the wifi/uma section and you'll find some good info on how to setup your router. You may need to update it's firmware. Check the documentation that came with on how to do that or check out Belkin's website for more info.

its the extra mimo part that is crashing your BB. I went out and bought a new router a month ago because for some reason it wouldn't allow my computers to connect every 5 days or so and I'd have to reset the router.

I bought a N router and my BB crashed all the time. Swapped it out for a g + mimo same thing. Had to go with a new g router. Good thing is that the first router was $90 and I ended up with only a $40 router that still works.

Good to know. Hadn't read anything specific about the Mimo portion of the router.
