just17 - Yup! However, I can't be sure what fixed it; the OS update or the firmware downgrade.
parnote - It's a Netgear wnr2000v3. I'm hoping that my connection dropping problem is now fixed. If you get one, don't update the firmware. If necessary, downgrade to v. 220.127.116.11. Otherwise it's fine for home use. I'm not pleased with their support.
