My home phone keeps de registering
Gateway is BGW210-700. When I go into the console it allows me to register the phone and everything works fine.
I had UVERSE for almost 10 years with a 2Wire gateway and this problem started as the modem had to be changed.
The phones (I have 2 lines) keep de registering about once a day. Sometimes both, sometimes just one.
What is the problem?

The phones themselves are deregistering or you're loosing dial tone at the gateway? Two completely different things and unrelated to each other. If it's the phones, make and model. If it's the gateway what have you done to get the service back? What console are we talking about?

So I'm assuming, the console you linked to is your access the modem itself. Have you tried rebooting the modem rather than resetting via the "console"? I'm thinking you need a hard reset instead of a soft reset. So bottom line is you've isolated the problem to the gateway.

From what you've tried and described I'd say it's time for them to replace your modem. I'd try rebooting a modem another time or two, but sounds like you may have a bad modem if everything except the phones are working. Per the manual there is also a reset button on the back, you may want to give it a try, just be aware that the manual states holding the button for 10 seconds or longer will reset the modem to factory defaults, I don't think you want to do that.

Had a service tech check the line. The issue was with a distribution box in the pole, where the cable coming in had the insulation worn out and was rubbing the metal box. Installed new cable and patched to existing one and problem happily solved
