I have a Netgear router (WNR3400 N600) that keeps dropping signals on the 2.4 Ghz radio but not the 5 GHz channel. I've had the router for about a year. It replaced another Netgear router that did the same thing. The firmware is up to date, so my thought is the radio has gone bad, but I have no idea. If this works right, I've posted a screenshot of inSSIDer 2.1's time graph. You'll notice the thick line (the 5 GHz channel) is stable. It's the 2.4 that keeps plunging. I added the guest network (2.4) just to see what it does, and it acts the same. The top two lines are the 2.4 GHz signals, the standard SSID and the guest network. The thicker line is the 5GHz signal, and the lower line is the 2.4 GHz extender used to get the signal to the farthest part of the house.

My plan is to replace the router, but I thought I'd ask in case it's some settings I can adjust (but I doubt it). Thanks.
