the netgear router 814 v2 - just doesn't stay connected.  I lose 
connectivity every 30 minutes or so... and takes multiple restarts to 
get it going.  RIght now, I've unplugged the router and am connected 
directly to my cable modem.  i haven't a problem in 2 days.
THere is a firmware upgrade, from 5.03 to 5.3 .  I haven't tried that 
but the netgear tech didn't think that would solve my issue.  He says 
th router is working fine.
