I can connect it to my wireless N router (a D-link DIR-615) just fine.
However, after a short period of time (not even long enough to watch a full Youtube video), the internet connection just stops functioning, and the little icon (I assume it means 'active' disappears from next to the wi-fi icon, which still indicates the wi-fi is connected. The only way I can get the internet connection to work again is to disconnect and reconnect the wi-fi, which buys me another minute or so of internet connection.
It's connected using WPA2, which is configured correctly because the Torch can successfully connect.
For these purposes, I'm testing this with the mobile network turned off.. With the mobile network turned on, it will revert back to the 3G connection, which of course I'm trying to avoid when I'm at home...
Any ideas? Any further information required?

Is your router using the most current firmware? This is probably more of an issue with the router and not the device.

Apparently I did have an update available for the router firmware (which oddly is the same version number), but updating it did not fix the problem.
I do seem to be getting seemingly random "blocked TCP packet" messages in the router logs.. Sometimes it's "blocked server-ip: port to my-isp-ip: port with unexpected sequence some-number (expected some-number to some-other-number)" (repeated 5 or 6 times), got some messages at other times about acknowledging connections that don't exist, and recently a whole bunch saying something to the effect of "RTSP ALG rejected packet from ip to ip"
But absolutely nothing in the log saying anything about disconnecting the Torch connection...

I have a dir-628 also and it worked perfect with my Curve 8900. Always had a signal but now with the Torch 9800 I'm not getting it. I spend a couple of hours with the UMA PDA support and they couldn't figure it out either. She told me that they will monitor the problem and when there are lotsa people with similar issues, they will come up with a solution.
At least they are aware of it. She even got me to switch my 2 day old Torch for a new one but that didn't help.

As best as I can tell, there's an incompatibility issue with the 'N' wifi connectivity, either in the Torch 9800 or a whole lot of N wireless routers.
I disabled the 'N' functionality in my DIR-615 router, set it to mixed B and G, and now I have no problems at all with the wifi connection dropping. Might be a little slower (assuming the Torch does take full advantage of N's extra speed when it works), but it's working well for me now....

And now, the continuing saga of issues with my wifi....
Now my router is being absolutely FLOODED with "Wireless system with MAC address <Blackberry MAC address> associated" messages.... What would amount to thousands of them per hour....
