Wireless Intermittent Connection Problem

  sunrunner 16:00 17 Nov 2010

Hi all,

I have been using a NETGEAR DG834G router for years without issue.

In the last few days all my wireless gadgets keep dropping their connection i.e 2 laptops, PS3 and iphone4. This happens intermittently through the day, some times every few minutes, sometimes hours.

The wireless internet is fine as the gadgets say connected just wont talk with my home network or load webpages. If I turn wireless buttons off then back on they all work fine again. I have a desktop Pc connected via cable and this still works on the internet when all the wireless gadgets don't, so I dont think it is the router dropping out. I have rest the router in case but the problem remains. Like I said never had issues before a couple of days ago.

Any help appreciated.

OK will give it a go! One I have changed the channel will all the devices still see the router or do I have to set my network up from scratch again?
