my wifi keeps dropping and and reconnecting. It does this several times a day. I have security cameras in the house and every time this happens I have an alert that the camera is offline. It comes back on after a few minutes, but it does effect streaming from other sources too. How can I fix this?

Have you plugged your computer directly into the exede modem? Does it drop connection?....if it does not....your wireless router is going bad.

If it still drops.... well, we will cross that bridge yadda yadda

Thank you. I will give it a shot, however, the router had no issues until I switched to the exude router.

Jeff - Yeah, you need to figure out if it is your wireless router dropping the connection or the Exede modem. If you can look at your modem when this occurs and see if all four LEDs are still on.  Probably hard to catch it at the exact moment.

What kind of wireless router do you have?  Cisco or Linksys perhaps?  If so that is your problem.  For whatever reason those routers do not like the Exede service.  Best router I have found is any DLINK router.

Also if you send me a private message with your modems mac address I can take a look at everything from Exede's end and make sure nothing is going on with your modem.  david@lakecountrysat.com Easiest way to find your mac address open a browser and type in 192.168.100.1 then click on the modem, down to the right you will be able to select and copy your mac address.
