Updating netgear firmware
The same goes for digital camera makers, smartphone manufacturers, etc.
You can visit the manufacturer's website to download firmware updates.
There are many reasons you may want to consider updating your router’s firmware, here are several of them.
One good reason why your router manufacturer may put out a firmware update is because they are trying to fix a vulnerability that was detected in the current firmware, updated firmware is similar to system updates (as in Microsoft’s Windows Update).
For example, let's say you buy a 20-pack of empty BD discs and try to burn a video to a few of them but it doesn't work.
One of the first things the Blu-ray drive manufacturer would probably suggest is to update the firmware on the drive.
Realizing that it was more than a coincidence that two N300 routers would have identical connection issues, I decided to hit Google and see what I could find.This is how I fixed the same problem – 3 years apart – with two Netgear routers constantly disconnecting intermittently.It is a revised version of my original 2012 post to include updated info from 2015.After my first wave of intermittent disconnects – and tinkering with the router settings – I took it back to Best Buy to explain the problem to them.They merely told me to exchange it for a new one, which I did.
