I too experience a similar issue with the wireless connection dropping. My wireless devices are within a 20-30 foot distance from the router and all of the devices loose conectivity so I know it's not just a specific device.

My WNR834M is running version 1.4.23NA. The logs file doesn't show anything except for one timestamp the last time it was reinitialized (a forced reboot).

The router's WiFi Channel is set for AUTO and is currectly using Channel 1 (found under Maintenance

Netgear D7000 modem keeps dropping offline

Cordless phones, microwave ovens and wireless surveillance cameras between the modem and the device will do it. If it's hard wired to the computer, the signal strength from the phone company may be low. Call the phone company to have them come out and test the signal level that is applied to the modem.

Hi. Try relocating the router. A router's signal is usually in a shape of an upside down apple (imagine the router in the middle.. weak signal directly up and directly down). Many things can interfere with its signal like carpets, radio's, halogen lamps, aquariums etc. The best place where you can locate it is on a shelf about a foot higher than you. :-)

Zoom 1079 modem works fine on its own, but internet drops out intermittently when I add my Netgear N-150 wireless router for use with Netflix... Rene.

If you're connecting the device you're watching netflix with wirelessly, check the strength of the signal your device is getting from the router, netflix needs a strong connection and the download speed you'll need for it is 1.5mbps or greater. If both your signal and download speed are fine try unplugging your Netgear and your Zoom from the power for about 5 min. to refresh your connection

Router stopped working altogether

Please check your cable connections; are the lights blinking? try connecting your computer directly to the modem dsl port that is connected was to the router if connection can be restored.
