Well if you reset it and updated the firmware, seems like it's time for a new router.

 

How old is it?

 

Is it just the wireless, if you are wired is it fine?

 

Also, how do you know for a fact it is the router?


Hope this helps thumbup.gif

try renaming the network. Sounds odd, but I've seen a lot of cases where renaming the network will create a new stable connection.
