    My Netgear MR314 wireless router worked fine for about 3 months. All
    of a sudden, the wireless connection disappears. Looking at the base
    unit, I can see that the wireless light indicator is not showing.

    However, everything else works fine. I unplug it and leave it switched
    off for an hour, turn it on and it works again.

    However, the same thing has happened. And this time rebooting it has
    no effect.

    Has anybody had this problem?

    My setup:
    2 x Netgear MA111 USB wireless adapters
    1 x Netgear MR314
    Win XP

    Thanks!

    Check that the power adapter is not plugged in to a surge protector, and
    that it is open to the air for cooling. I have had similar NG device
    problems (Linksys as well) caused by a AC adapters that are covered
    over, inverted which causes overheating or having an inadequate AC
    voltage from a faulty surge protector which also make it run hot.

    Check that the power adapter is not plugged in to a surge protector, and
    It's currently plugged into a multi socket adapter, with no surge
    protector. However, it is placed above my tv, so that could be it.

    I've moved it a to cooler shelf, and also upgraded the firmware. The
    problem seems to have gone away now.

    Thanks!!!
