I spoke to netgear regards line dropping out on my DM^)" netgear router.
The engineer told me that this was a known fault, the item had been removed from sale and replaced with a DM632. He said if I gave him the serial number of the old router he would swap the router for a new model one.
How's about that ladies and gentlemen,
firstname.lastname@example.org please do not abuse this guy. He was very helpful.
