try changing the security to see if that helps. odd that a static ip fixes it. its almost like it loses its ip configuration.
when your tablet looses network, are you actively using it, or was it in sleep mode?
The tablet would lose connection while actively using it...it was weird.
What's even weirder is that I have NOT set other WiFi connections to static IPs like I had to do with my D-Link router, yet the connections with those other routers have remained steady while in default DHCP modes. I have no idea why this would be the case (it doesn't make sense).
Like I said earlier, my router does not have very much in the way of special settings...just WPA 2, N-only mode, and a DHCP IP release after 24 hours of inactivity are the only options I enforced. Looking at my router logs, it definitely sees my tablet and updates the release time each time I use the tablet...but I don't see anything in the logs when the tablet suddenly disconnects from the router. So I have no idea if it's the router or the tablet. lol
I have not tried another security setting, but I don't want to lessen my security in this environment. Beseides, I know at least one othe router that I connect to is using WPA2 also.
I can live with this work-around as long as I don't have to force a static IP on every other router I connect to.
