    I've been using this router for the past 2 months without any problems.

    Last night I downloaded the lastest firmware (ver. 1.5_14) from the
    Netgear site and installed it. After the status bar showed 100%
    complete another window poped up saying that the firmware had been
    installed. But the router never rebooted when the installation
    completed which, according to the documentation on the website, should
    have occured. The router appeared to hang after the install. I was not
    able to access the settings via the admin page and I eventually
    unplugged the power cord to the router and waited a few minutes before
    reconnecting. It worked fine after I did this. The router was able to
    acquire the ip from the cable modem and all seemed well. However, every

    time I access the settings for the router and make a change to the
    config and hit Apply, the router will reboot and fail to acquire the
    modem settings until I cycle the power again. This was not the case
    prior to the upgrade.

    I tried to do a hard reset by pressing in and holding for 60 seconds
    the recessed button at the back of the router but this had no effect. I

    even flashed the firmware again and the problem still persists. Any
    ideas on what might be going on here??

    I'd just try flashing the firmware to the previous version you were using,
    then report the bug to Netgear

    Unless you wanted to actually preview the source code of the firmware and
    see if you can debug it yourself! =P
