I used to have major problems with random disconnects, up to 6 times a day, with a WRT54G that a friend of mine had given me.
I finally got around loading up DD-WRT last month and haven't had any disconnects since. I only wish I had done it early.
Ascent has these for $92 and I followed the instructions on this site, http://www.scorpiontek.org/portal/content/view/27/36/.
BarTender: I think the fact you have a netgear is the problem... Trust me, the money you will spend on a WRT54GL will pay itself off in less than a month from lack of frustration and having a solution that you plug in and it just works (after flashing the firmware to DD-WRT). Then flick your old netgear on Trademe.
