Random internet disconnecting.

My internet connection frequently disconnects, seemingly at random.

I have a Tesco broadband connection and use a Netgear DG834G router.

The router shows a connection to the ISP but we can get no response until we unpug and reconnect the power to the router. It is then fine for a while, until the next occurence.

Can anyone help, please?

I had a very similar occurrence some while back with the same router, although I am on Pipex b/b.

I first though it was my Pipex connection playing up, but as an experiment I moved the plug from the PC from socket 1 to socket 3 on the router.

I have no idea why it worked, but ever since then, (almost a year), I have had no problems.
