Ive had this router for about 6 months and it worked perfectly but then all of a sudden it started loosing the connection. My laptop shows that I'm always connected to the router but it seems its not broadcasting the internet to my computer. It will work in short bursts and then time out every page saying the page cannot be displayed, and then you have to wait for the next wave of signal. Netgear just says that something is interfering with the signal. I haven't made any changes so I'm completely clueless about what could do that, and I really don't think thats the problem

This has happened to me before. I had to unplug my router, then unplug my modem aswell (if you have one) and I waited for a good 10 minutes. Then plugged my modem in and let it boot up all the way, then plugged in my router, and it worked fine after that.
Hope this helps,
if you go to the netgear site, and get to the section for your model, you may want to update the firmware. this may solve most of the problems. you can also read what the latest firmware fixes. it should give info on the entire firmware history.
Have you check the new firmaware update for your Netgear? ..pls do so first before proceeding to the next step provided below.
Next approach is to unistall and reinstall you 'reciever' to avoid any conflicts and isolate the issue. If that step is still a no go we might as well reset your netgear router to its factory settings and then lets start from there. It should work as your router has fanstastic features that supports 26bit encryption.
when the lights on a router fail to work, this means that the router has gone bad. In some cases like yours, the router went bad. You have to concider that the router is always transmitting a wireless signal 24 hours a day. My option to you is to get a new router that is better and longer lasting. I have a linksys WRT300N and it is the best on I have ever used. (I also used netgear and belkin)
