Netgear Router Rebooting Frequently

Hi All,
Since we returned from holiday last week; I have noticed that our router now seems to keep rebooting itself at varying intervals (anything from 15 minutes to 2 hours between reboots). 
The router is a Netgear DGN2200v3.
The logfile from the router since the last known reboot is shown
[DoS attack: ACK Scan] from source:, Tuesday, November 06,2012 12:59:57

[Initialized, firmware version: V1.1.00.10_1.00.10 ] Tuesday, November 06,2012 11:41:34   

Apart from the DoS attacks; which I believe are quite common & the router is blocking them; does anybody have any ideas?  My searching on the internet has not given me much to go on.
It appears that the day before we returned we had a major power outage, the router was on whilst we were away as we have a couple of IP-cams to keep an eye on our cats with, but I wouldn't have thought that such an outage would have had much effect?

Re: Netgear Router Rebooting Frequently

A router that frequently suffers spontaneous reboots is usually faulty.  You could try resetting the router to factory settings - but if you do that you'll have to set it up again from scratch.
