What setting do you have the Mode: set to in Wireless Settings
The reason I ask is I had mine on g&b and it was flaky I put it on Auto 108 and its been rock solid ever since.Ray

is there any difference to a reboot of the modem ie reset button
or just pull the mains plug out

If you hold the reset button in for ten seconds I believe it restores factory defaults such as the original password (sky in this case)

In addition to the site access woes I am experiencing (detailed in another post). I am also having to reboot the modem multiple times per day. I can normally tell a reboot is coming when the speed drops but the modem still reports all my setting are correct, then the connection grinds to a halt.
This comes as no surprise though. I used to use a Netgear RP614 router and the thing was horrid - requiring multiple reboots. It appears that in the intervening years Netgear stuff has got no better.
Perhaps I was just spoiled by the once every 2 to 4 weeks reboots I was getting with my Belkin modem/router, and similar experience with a D-Link.
It's a shame people can not 'opt out' of Sky Support and be allowed to use their own hardware as I would be launching my rebadged NetGear modem down the garden!

I have a netgear DG834G and have no probs with it running a ADSL2+ service. Goes for months without the need of a reboot! (Im gonna crack my sky router and use my DG834G I think!)
The main problem with netgear is the firmware! Get a stable firmware and they are fine!! This is the same with the DG834GT. Read about it many times!!

Just as a test, disable UPnP and see if you continue to get the same problem.
