    I,m using a Netgear DGN1000 with a laptop via wifi and a tower via cable.
    The wifi drops out probably 3-5 times a day for 1-2 minutes each time. No
    problem with
    other networks nearby, wireless phone is a couple of hundred megahertz away.
    ie its a quite RF neighbourhood so interference should not be an issue.
    Firmware is latest version.
    The "Wifi Analyser" app I have on a smartphone shows the router signal just
    dropping away totally
    then restarting.
    All I want is a modem wifi router that has reasonable range that does not
    drop out..
    When I look up blog sites re the replacement routers I look at almost always
    have
    negative comments re drop outs. Laptop is Asus X54C.
    Any suggestions re N600 abgn routers that seem more stable than others???
    Many thanks
    John

    Does the router has any log/syslog that you can have a look at?

    Sorry to take so long, I was waiting for it to happen when I was around.
    This seems to be an entire event.
    Not being that "au fait" with this I wasnt sure about security so I,ve put
    in some "dont cares" in the first two lines
    in the Mac address. They were different alphanumerics though.
    When it happened "wifi analyser" app on phone showed zero signal from
    router. When router signal came back on
    Laptop connected with excellent signal but with no Internet Access.
    Disconnected and connected , wouldnt connect.. Closed up laptop and it
    connected immediately
    when windows 7 came up.
    Many thanks

    Totally solved. Netgear eventually totally failed. Bought a Dlink 2455.
    Excellent range, no drop outs whatsoever.
