Default WNDR4000 keeps losing connectivity

I have a WNDR3700 and WNDR4000. The latter I bought to get improved performance. But it keeps dropping the connection for a few seconds, and then reconnecting. It also drops the USB readyshare disk.

Is this a known issue?
Any solutions?

This router got Editor's Choice in PC Magazine, and so far it is awful. The WNDR3700 works flawlessly.

Actually, to my knowledge, they are set up identically. I can swap them with no resets of anything. I am wondering if it has something to do with the USB support. I have turned it off for now.

And when I turned the router on initially, it got auto updated to 1.0.0.66.

One of the WNDRs at a time. I do have them hard-wired to a Linksys WRT610N that is used as a range extender, and yes, it is set up properly.

I can swap all the cables from one Netgear to the other without any changes, other then the WNDR4000 dropping the connections. I have not seen a drop this morning thus far, but I have turned off my USB disk.

And this is WIRED connectivity that drops. The wireless probably drops too, but I am not using it to connect any of my computers. Wireless is used for my TVs and Squeezeboxes.

Linksys WRT610N is a router and not extender so you are using as an access point ? or repeating with 4000?

which one is the main router ? 4000 and linksys is behind the netgear router?

although this should not cause to drop the ready share USB unless device IP of linksys and netgear is conflicting .

It is connected to one of the LAN outputs of the NetGear and DHCP and UPnP are turned off. It is on 192.168.1.2. So yes, it is an access point.

This is not a router misconfiguration issue. I know how to configure them.

that is why I said likely it is not the two routes. just explanation was not clear with lingo used.

likely that readyshare goes away could be from the firmware related issues.
