Netgear DG824M wireless B/band Router

Using with a Netgear MA101 USB Adapter.

Does anyone know why I keep losing my wireless conection?

PCs are both running XP.
PCs less than 5 mtrs apart (one on ground floor other in room above, wooden floor).
I have tried all sorts of configuations, no WEP, 64bit WEP, 128bit WEP, trusted MAC numbers.
Upgraded to the latest firmware.
Works ok for a few mins (sometimes hours), then all I get is 'Wireless Network Unavliable.'

Have you tried phoning Netgear tech support? I had a problem with my wireless router (the print server on it stopped working).

One phone call to them and they talked me through a few options which all failed. They then said they would send me a new router to try. If it worked, I should send the old one back to them. The router arrived the next day and worked so I sent the old one back.

If you have a look in the consumer watch forum for Netgear you will see that they have excellent customer service.

Hope this helps.
