Hi.I placed a question last week about windows xp pro [copy].I had such good responce from all those concerned I just want to say thankyou.So i'm having another bash,I have installed a Netgear DG834G wireless system about 10 days ago,Working fine only one little hitch thoe now and again i seem to loose the connection to the internet,Cant get into Google,AVG,Nothing really until I reboot my pc and everything is fine then maybe for a couple of days.Any ideas on this problem or is it just the Netgear.[ The problem is on the main pc not the laptop that is working from the pendrive] Many thanks,daiol.

it could be a setting some of these give you an option of always on or timed.

either your netgear came with a cd/manual or visit their site and look for faqs

Check the routers logs as well login to the routers setup page which should be unless you've changed it.

I had the same problem - upgrade the firmware to the latest version which is on the Netgear website.

Cured the problem for me and improved the wireless performance as well.

i have the dg834g adsl router have not updated the firmware as everything is working fine.

My firmware version is v3.02.06.00 which makes me feel you have the wrong version.

Version 3.01.25 is the latest (non-beta) version of firmware for the DG834Gv2. Are you not referring to the modem firmware version you have as I believe v3.02.06.00 of the modem firmware was bundled with v2.10.22 router firmware? (confusing I know!)

Is it the wireless connection that is dropping or are you wired to the PC? You say you have to reboot your PC so I wondered if it was the PC rather than the router.

Does the router stats log show the WAN has disconnected?
