Strange Connectivity problem

Hi, I wonder if anyone can offer some advise on this problem.

I connect to the net using a direct connection to a Netgear DG834N. My general connection to the net is fine but periodically I can't get either Microsoft Messenger or Trillian to connect. They just report they cannot connect.

Some of the time if I reboot the router its fine but not always. However if I hook up my DG834G the problem seems to go away.

I can only assume the two units are handling certain ports differently but alas this is just a guess.

Can anyone tell me how get the “N” working as I cant keep the “G” permanently connected?

Have you tried updating the router's firmware?
