Exclamation Wireless Problems with Netgear WNR1000 (N-150)

Hi,

I have just bought the WNR1000 (N-150) router a week ago but unfortunately once or twice a day (using wireless on PC or MAC) the signal gets lost and I have to physically power the router on and off again to resume the wireless connectivity. When I check the lights on the Netgear N-150 router I don't see any problems; the wireless, internet and the security icons are all lit. I have the latest firmware upgrade done. Here are the other details;

Hardware Version WNR1000
Firmware Version V1.0.1.15NA
GUI Language Version V1.1.5.12

Please let me know what the problem might be. I would like to swap it with a new unit if you think my unit is problematic. It hasn't been 30 days yet.

Thank you.

June,

I can definitely do that, but it will defeat the purpose of me buying this router. I was using a NetGear 54 MBPs (g) router before this one and the reason I bought this one was to have an "n" router (up to 150 MBPs).

Also, I am having the same problem while using my PC, which has a g wireless (as I wrote in detail in my previous post). So I don't think it is MAC's wireless.

What else do you might be causing this issue?

Thank you.

start from low Mbps and find out.

N router is backward compatible but chipset on both end creates issues.

plug n' play is still plug n' pray
