    Hey everyone, my name is Andre,

    I've had a Netgear WPN824 v3 wired/wireless router for over a year now. Recently, the wireless intern connection goes off and on. The desktop computer that's wired to it doesn't lose connection, only wireless devices repeatedly gain and lose connection. To fix it I have to unplug the the router and plug it back in. The connection returns for about 2 minutes and then starts to go off and on again. I'm completely confused about what to do. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance

    Make sure you have the latest firmware; then reset the router to factory default settings and reconfigure it.

    Multiple wireless devices lose internet access at the same time? Can they still access the router (via wireless) during that time? If not, can you still detect the wireless network?
