For a few weeks now, my router has been dropping WiFi connections, seemingly at random.
When trying to watch BBC iPlayer is terrible, as it keeps dropping every 5 minutes.
Tonight my iPod Touch (iOS5) was connecting okay, while my son's iPod Touches (iOS3 and iOS4) would not.
My MacBook Pro would not connect either.
The only to get things working again, is to turn the router off for a few minutes and turn it on again.
I have router wireless settings as follows:
Network Mode: mixed
Radio Band: Wide - 40MHz channel
Wide Channel: 9
Standard Channel: 7 - 2.442GHz
Router Firmware Version:V2.00.20
My wired connection is running well:
Speed DownSpeed Up
|15734.10 Kbps ( 15.4 Mbps )|
|1012.05 Kbps ( 1 Mbps )|
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the reply.
I made the changes to my router as suggested:
Network Mode: Mixed
Radio Band: Standard - 20MHz Channel
Wide Channel: 9
Standard Channel: 13 - 2.472GHz
SSID Broadcast: Enabled
All worked well for about a month, but I have noticed the iPods and my laptop losing the network a few times over the past week or so. Other devices are able to connect normally.
The only way to get the connection back on these devices is to turn the router off and back on again.

I had a similar problem that i din't fix.
after a few months it escalated and the internet connection to the device started to get dropped.
I guess its getting to the end of life of the device.

Make sure that the firmware of the modem is up to date. Make sure as well that the wireless adapters of your wireless devices have the latest drivers. Once checking the firmware and the drivers are up to date, you may also reset the modem (push and hold the reset button for 30 seconds then power it off for another 30 seconds) then reconfigure the settings.
