yes latest firmware, no on dd-wrt, I don't think the plain olf WNR-3500
does it, it's some newer fancier version that does. After two bad
Netgears in three years though I am not well disposed toward them, hence
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
I doubt it is a "windows bug" because virtually every time I've run
across the problem (and it is quite common) any computer connected to
the network would loose the connection - and trying to connect with a
wireless device , same problem. Generally the IP Switch part is still
working fine - you can network between computers and printers etc
without problems - but no internet connection.
Bad router, almost guaranteed.

switch in this one is fine, and connection to the interwebs is fine.
if I sit at desk and plug in it works fine. If I sit elsewhere in the
house and connect wirelessly I maintain connection to router but lose
internet, have to disconnect and reconnect. I'm 99% sure that it is
the router b/c I have seen this on several devices (have Wii connected
wirelessly for netflix, also other laptops running Windows not Linux)
