Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router
As above,I keep losing internet connection intermittently which is very annoying.My computer "dongel" attachment is only about 9 metres from the router in another room.Interestingly the blue light on the dongel flashes and is not constantly on.HELP please.
I have the same router - but its all connections that it loses not just wireless. Every 15 or 20 mins I get kicked off of World of Warcraft (wired connection) and my son gets kicked off of COD4 (wireless PS3). So it's def the router thats at fault. Looked for new firmware but its got the most current.

Yep, microwaves will give them hell as they work along the same frequency. Ours used to switch our wireless on and off whenever my mother was cooking. Much fun, I can tell you.
"Mam! You've killed the net again!"
What I did do as a temporary solution when I had similar problems is make a small satellite dish out of foil for my dongle.
It may be worth investing in a router with more powerful wireless. There's some 2-Wire routers also sold as BT Home Business Hubs which have stronger wlan than usual. They tend to cost more but they're worth it. Really good routers too, especially if you have a weak line.

Sounds like it might be a bad USB dongle causing the problem. Have you tried another USB port on your computer to rule out a faulty dongle?
The other problem might be a faulty CAT-5 cable. Make sure that the cable is not be stepped on or rolled over by a chair. It is very easy to break the wires inside the cable and still get connections off and on.
