I have Windows 7 Pro 64bit set to automatically update the OS. Three days ago I lost connectivity on my shared home network that uses a Netgear WN2000RPTv2 wireless extender to help me connect to my Ruku which had worked perfectly to stream movies. (Amazon Prime). When I began to check out the systems for possible erorrs, I noticed that there had been updates for Netgear, several optional and one recommended.
All failed with the error code of 80070103. I've tried unplugging my routers, did a hard restart to factory defaults, etc., all resulting in no change to the systems. Any suggestions? I am connected to CHARTER via a Cisco Cable Moden DCP3010 which is fed into my Netgear Wireless Dual-Band WNDR 3400 v2 router. The desktop pc connected to it is as follows:
Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version 1.0.0.2
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8150 Eight-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 21 Model 1 Stepping 2
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 10079 Mb
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD 7570, -2048 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 932364 MB, Free - 856809 MB; D: Total - 21079 MB, Free - 2654 MB;
Motherboard: Gigabyte, 2AC8
Antivirus: Microsoft Security Essentials, Updated and Enabled

Thanks in advance for any help you can give!

DAI: Thanks for the post! I had found that in my research, but now am confronted with problem of trying to update Netgear driver/firmware. When I go to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com I cannot make a connection. Doesn't matter how many times I hit F5 key, there is no refresh or connection. It looks like I am going to have to resort to paying for Netgear support to get help in solving this problem.... Anyhow, THANKS for your input!

Thanks again for the replies. Finally solved problem by getting new router, WNDR 3700 dual band. Resetting Windows update to notify, and not going to let Windows just "automatically" install updates. Again, many thanks for the replies!
