For the last couple of weeks, my internet kicks off and I have to reset my wireless router. I have a desktop that is hardwired, a laptop that is wireless and Vontage (which seems to have esclated my problem) all hooked up to it. My router is about 2-1/2 years old - do you think I just need to upgrade to a newer version

Re: Netgear Wireless Router Problems
Use the process of elmination, disconnect Vontage, does the problem go away? If no then look at the modem (cable or dsl).
Hint! If you have a cable modem, make sure all cable connections are tight from the outside of the house, to every TV, and from the wall to the cable modem. Use plyers to tighten all of them.

You can do a reset on the router to make a factory settings.On the back of the router you can look for a small hole usually with the word reset.Press it for 20 secs with the router on but disconnected from the Ethernet cable.Start up your PC and surf to the router Web UI (192.168.***) and make your settings.
Hello....sudden loss of wireless on two computers, in the same home, may indicate that a powerful source of wireless interference has just arrived (since your wireless router light is still on).
1) Does the signal improve if you move the router, or move the laptop closer to the router?
2) Have you had any success with changing the channel on your router? (Login to router > select Wireless Settings > Channel)
If you have not moved furniture yourself, or installed a device which could interfere with the signal (eg a DECT phone), it's possible a neighbour's new router may be the culprit.
Looks like when you reset the router you have lost all yur configuration and back to the default factory settings.
