Informal testing suggests that the problem actually lies with the XP uPNP UI extensions - the ones that give you the nice "gateway" icon. Disabling them but leaving uPNP on seems to work fine.
Could some members please test this and give us some feedback?
Click Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, then Add/Remove Windows Components. Double-click Networking Services, untick UPnP User Interface, click Ok, then Next, then wait a few seconds/minutes/hours depending on your PC, job done. UPNP-aware applications will still be able to use it to map NAT etc through, you'll just lose the "Gateway" icon in the Netwrok Connections window (and the little taskbar icon too). Annoying for some, but less annoying than constant reboots.

Don't you mean its an issue with how the Netgear router handles it? i've been running my linksys router for the last week, with everything enabled, always get the internet gateway icon showing up (need to keep an eye on usage as on the connect package with 4 pc's on it ), had no lockups or line drops. before this with exactly the same settings the Netgear would lock within 10 minutes

Other routers have NO problem running UPNP, and I have a phillips UPNP media station that is unable to access the netgear after about half an hour of the router being booted. So it's definatly the router thats the problem for me.
