Question about NetGear DG834G Router
This router (Netgear DG834G) used to work fine. Recently the wireless network has started dropping out without warning and often the internet connection speed can be very slow (sub dial-up speeds). I have checked the ADSL download speed using an older wired router and speed checking software and it's fine.
When the wireless drops out (which occurs on my laptop, PS3, Wii and iPhone) the light on the front indicating a Wireless transmission is still green. The network than randomly reappears and sometimes I can reconnect to it and sometimes I can't. I have read lots of sites trying to resolve this issue myself but to no avail. PLEASE CAN YOU HELP?
I list below what I have done/tried:
I have not added any new electrical equipment.
I have updated the Firmware.
I have checked the Firewall settings.
I have manually entered the DNS stipulated by my IPS (Virgin Broadband).
I have checked the local wireless routers and set my channel to 13 to deconflict from others (I set it to 1 and 2 as well but this didn't solve the problem).
I have de-powered and repowered.
I have returned the Router to factory settings and set it up from scratch.
I have checked my incoming internet connection using a wired router.
I have a WPA PSK enabled network in place.
Thanks for your help Gepax - Strayjagmate.

Make sure that there are no cordless or wireless devices near the router such as a cordless phone since that will interfere with the wireless signal and a cause for frequent disconnection.
otherwise, the device should be replaced already.
