Recently in the past 3 or 4 days, our wireless router keeps dropping or becoming disconnected from the internet. I have a Netgear wireless router. When everying is working fine the lights on the front are all green. When the connection drops the question mark on front turns yellow. I have ran Spyware and Ad-Aware to try to resolve the issue but have had no luck. Is there anything else I should be trying to fix this?

looks like it wasn't a question mark. It is an "i" with a have circle around it. It made it look like a question mark. I guess the "i" is the internet connectivity light.

Cable or DSL? Make sure it's the router not the modem, hook a computer directly up to the modem and see if the connection fails
