Question about Computers & Internet
It is not uncommon for routers of any type that I've tried to ' glitch ' or ' hang '. The timer mentioned above may help a bit but what is to stop the router from ' hanging ' inbetween the timer settings? I agree with the getting the timer as long as it doesn't cost to much, but I would also add that getting the newest firmware update for router may and probably will help a lttle at least. Netgear is similar to Linksys in style and manufacturing, in fact I've heard that Netgear routers are often made by Linksys ( walmart deal I hear ). The last time I visited the Netgear site it offered little to boost my confidence in the routers but it did offer firmware updates in a minor sense of the word ' update '.
I also noticed that many factors affecting Netgear routers were addressed on the Linksys website, but please be careful of mentioning Netgear on the Linksys website as they sometimes get a little upset by the notion of an unwanted stepchild. I would never and I mean never suggest updating a Netgear router using a Linksys firmware update.

I would go to your local radio shack or electronic dealership and buy an automatic timer, and plug your router into that. have set to shut off then turn on at certain times. it will work for just fine. you can get them at kmart or pretty much anywhere. if you not sure about the device im writing about just tell someone in the store to get you a timer that has 110 v plug and explain what you need it for . hope you find one, good luck
