Recently got an HTC One and love the phone, but after firing it up on its wireless connection, I began noticing that my wireless network seems to be dropping its connection quite frequently. Now this is not a new occurrence, but in our iPhone 4, iPad 1, HTC Evo 4G, ROKU XS, and several other OLDER wireless products household (albeit all on wireless N), I never noticed the disconnects as much as I do on the brand new phone. I noticed the problems begin in earnest about four months ago and put them down to the usual crap-tastic service from Comcast, especially since we have had several full outages in recent months while they performed "service" in the area. I have a D-Link Gamerlounge DGL-4500 router and a Motorola Surfboard SB6120 modem. So, here is my question...can a new piece of equipment like an HTC One place such a significant increase in demand on a failing wireless portion of a router that it really shows up the problem? My router logs show that each time I try to use the One wirelessly, I get the following message: [INFO] Sat Jul 06 15:58:50 2013 Wireless system with MAC address XXXXXXX disconnected for reason: Received Deauthentication. This is not the only time I get this message though. I get it as I just did, out of the blue as well. I have contacted Comcast, and they insist, as usual, that it is my router. In this case, they may be correct, since I do understand that the wireless portion of a router can go bad long before the wired portion. I did already order a new ASUS RT-AC66U router and a Zoom 5341J Modem, since it is probably time to do so based on the number of unmentioned wireless products that we use. But, can the new phone place such a load on the network? Hopefully, the new phone's wireless radio isn't defective too. Just my luck.

No advice from the networking gurus at all?

My HTC One does the same thing.

Doesn't seem to bother things though...
