Default DGN2200 dropping randomly

Hi.

My netgear router DGN2200 randomly drops my internet connection every so often, sometimes it lasts for a long time connected and other times it will last 10 minutes. I never had this issue with my dg834.

Is there a setting i must change in the router?

can try reducing mtu size, go to 192.168.0.1, wan setup, default value is 1492, try random values like 1485, 1470, 1475, 1450 others.

one of them should work for u, also determine whether u are dropping connection on wired and wireless or just wireless

if just wireless is dropping then there would be a different troubleshooting
try different w.l channels

Have you replaced the Dsl filter and/remove other phone device and eliminate the failure point.

Also reduce down to one Pc if you have any other devices that connect wirelessly to the router as well

If this is any help, when it drop the router light goes from blinking green to red then back to green then red and alternates till it establishes a connection( Not just from green to red and stays red). Also it is not a sudden drop there is massive lag but still connectivity for about 2 seconds and then it drops.
