Ok, I've had the phone for about a week, and I can't figure out the cause of my issue.

At home, we use an Apple Airport wireless router. When I connect my phone to the router, it works fine for about 30 minutes or so. Then, after this time has passed, the router crashes and requires a reset to be functional. Both the router's wireless and wired connections fail, making all other machines connected not be able to connect to the internet.

I can almost guarantee that it's the phone due to the fact that the router has never crashed prior to the phone, and it still only crashes when I connect with the phone.

Another issue is WiFi at my university. I'm not 100% sure what model of routers they use, but they are new-ish Cisco routers. I can connect to WiFi, but some applications bug out when using the WiFi instead of the network. Also, very similar to my issue at home, after about 20-30 minutes, my phone gets kicked from the connection and can't reconnect unless I power cycle the phone.


Does anyone know what could be causing these issues? You'd be my data-usage saving hero....

Are you using a task killer?

No task killers. Sorry for the delayed response.

Edit: I guess I should also add that the phone is not rooted. When the problem first occurred, all I had installed was the free app "Words with Friends," but the problem persists with said app uninstalled.
