      Have a look at the firmware version, has it been updated or are they still sending out V1.02.28?

      Having seen a few of the 'new' routers I think the old one is a better bit of kit. I have an idea that they are getting the 'new' ones much cheaper(and look it) and that is the only reason for the change. When the firmware of the 'old' one is updated, I don't think there will be many problems. The basic DG834GT has received many glowing reviews, the firmware is it's downfall.

      You get a like for like swap out where possible, the new routers go out more than the old but you may find you got unlucky and there were some V1 netgears in the stores when the logistics group got the order to send yours out.

      Wireless stops working randomly, have to go down and power on and off the router to get it back, same with uPnP on and off.

      And same on both routers, new and old.

      Are you loosing the connection to the Internet, or just the wireless? If it is the latter maybe you should look at the adapter for the problem rather than the router.
