Angry Kindle Fire Connection Problems

I bought my wife a Kindle Fire for Christmas. We have a WGT624v2 router with firmware 4.2.11_1.0.1. The Kindle has the latest update. We can get the Kindle to connect for maybe an hour or 1 1/2hours at the most then the router seems to go completely offline. Nothing will connect to the router, even the hardwired PC, until we reboot the router then we are good for another hour or so. It is maddening!! We have a notebook that connects wirelessly and have never had a problem.

Yes that is correct. I've also assigned the Fire a static IP address. Didn't change a thing.

By the way, the static address I assigned to the Fire was through the router and not on the Fire itself.

Set up static IP on Fire and used google DNS. The Fire stayed connected for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours between use and sleep mode then it dropped off. It didn't take the router down with it so that was a change. Very frustrating! I don't know what to do next. Seems like I've tried everythimg.
