Default Unable to see wireless access network

Hello!

I have a NetGear RangeMax Next Wireless N Router WNR834B v2.

For some reason my wifi signal will randomly vanish, when I go to reconnect I see the names of other networks that belong to my neighbors, however I don't see network.

It will randomly show up anywhere from 5 minutes to 5 days later. What am I doing wrong, and how can sure it will continue to always show my network name?

I'm running Windows 7 on a desktop, and 2 laptops. I'm having this issues with the desktop and my PSP.

Sorry for double posting, think I put the original in the wrong section.
Thank you
-Chris

these models has an issue with wireless going bad.

open up the case and make sure MiniPCI card is seated correctly.

also possible weak power supply can cause this issues

I have the same problem...when I check to see the wireless networks around, I see others and cannot see mine and have to connect to the Ethernet port in order to access the internet.

I reset the router and nothing...My radio light is on, but no broadcast.

Any ideas?
