Well, my rock steady connection is less than rock steady now!
With uPnP on, after just about exactly 15 mins, you can't browse the web with internet explorer - not even to the router admin page. All other traffic is still fine, email/p2p/ftp etc. Reboot is required every 15 mins :-(
With uPnP off it's fine. I suspect an interaction issue with XP+SP2 (no other patches).
Anyone else got the same issue?

Interesting. I took more drastic action, however I'll plug the netgear back in this evening and check..

Sky firmware 1.02.28 / A2pB018e.d16f
- upnp on
- after 15 mins, http traffic can't be passed, 220.127.116.11 page unreachable
Netgear firmware 1.02.04 / A2pB018e.d16f
- upnp on
- after 15 mins, http traffic CAN be passed, 192.168.0.1 page unreachable
Given up now, but I bet Netgear 1.01.28 is the same as Sky's 1.02.28.
Oh, and once you've change LAN IP address reservations it won't let you restore a .cfg backup. It really is poo :-)

RE: It really is poo :-)
I'd go along with that - i'm beginning to hate this router more and more as each day passes

has anybody got UPNP to work on this router for longer than 10-15 minutes? As my last router had NO problems keeping UPNP alive for days/weeks at a time. And this one UPNP seems to die after about 15minutes of rebooting the router.

Some say they have it on and all is ok. I am trying to establish what is the difference between machines where it works and ones where it doesn't

I'm an exe Nilrdam as well - my speed has not gone up as much, but it is an improvement (about 300k) and more consistent.

Probebly down to SNR and Line Attenuation as with my old cheapo safecom router the SNR reads 8.6 and the Line Attenuation shows 35.7, but less than a minute latter with the netgear sky supplied the SNR is 7.1 and the Line Attenuation is a wapping 40.5. I then plug the safecom back in and I'm back to 8.5/35.9. So Not all routers are created equal. So the cheapo Safecom router gets a better connection as a result. This is using the SAME leads, all I did was unplug the leads at the back of the routers. check to see what the SNR/Line Attenuation are on both routers.
