NetGear N300 WNR2000v3 stops broadcasting SSID every few hours.

I bought me a new NetGear N300 WNR2000v3 the other day but every few hours it stops broadcasting the SSID. All connections, bother wired and wireless, will lose their connectivity and the connection disappears from the WiFi list. The only way to bandaid this problem is to unplug the router and plug it back it. It happens on average of 5 times a day. I've tried changing security settings, I've tried changing wireless channels, I've tried repositioning the router across the room, I've tried upgrading the firmware -and- downgrading to previous versions, I've tried resets and power cycles, and I have tried using the troubleshoot features on every laptop connecting to it. (Three of them.) When the connection is active, the signal is excellent and the speed is wonderful. But every few hours it will suddenly drop and everyone loses connection. The wireless light remains active green as if it still has internet, but it doesn't show up on anyone's laptop nor does being wired with an ethernet cable provide any connectivity until after it is unplugged. From thorough research online, it appears that this specific model of NetGear routers has affected many users with no solutions. What can I do to fix this, without having to go back out and buying a different one?

SOURCE: Issues with the BR-6114WG

Depending on how your router is set up, it may be a DNS problem. Start from beggining and make sure your router is enabled for wireless, wep or other encryption is off, DHCP is enabled for assigning IP addresses automatically. Run this programme on pc's, click Start>run then type ipconfig /flushdns then press enter. Clean out your old cached and temp files. Go to your wireless adapters properties and ensure that they are set to obtain ip address automatically in TCP/IP settings. Restart systems and hopefully you are away. Every time you use windows to repair the connection it will try to re-new IP addreses, but it won't be the one your router uses, so don't use it, as you will lose connection to the router.

SOURCE: Issue with router and ethernet cables

I imagine you reset/unplugged all of your routers, switches, and computers, starting with your modem, then router, and then each system?

There is a setup disk that need to be used to program your router with the ISP settings, passwords, and protocols for port forwarding, etc. I imagine you tried that.

Did you try all of your cables to make sure they weren't defective?

If you tried these,and the problem persists, the issue is a defective router. By default, the unit should transmit a wireless signal, and be ready to act as a routing switch for your other systems.

N300 wireless router

If you are just looking for the SSID and the password on a NETGEAR router, then all the information should be on the side of the router itself. Most times the SSID are NETGEAR07 or something like that and the password should be right beside that.

Cannot find security key for netgear N300 wireless router WNR2000v3

You will ahve to connect by wire to the router and go to the section for wireless security and see what it is set to. If asked for a User and Password and you know it was never set the the default is one of these combinations:
User: admin
User: admin

If none of these work you can try using the master reset which should be on the backside and usually requires a toothpick to press. If you do this you will need to redo all the settings because it will erase them.
