* Since installing the updated firmware, within approximately 1-2 hours - the wireless radios cease working.
* Wireless clients cannot connect.
* Existing connections drop
* Wired connections remain able to connect / change settings / restart the router as needed.
*** Disabling the 5ghz radio ceases the behavior. ***
I have attampted to revert, and I am not able to revert to the prior firmware and the prior versions appear to have been removed from the Linksys website.

I've had this exact same problem, rebooting resolves it for a while. I've reverted back to the previous release and it seems to have resolved the issue. Tech support was about helpless as they told me something was interfereing with my radio signal even AFTER I explained to them that restoring back to the previous version resolved the problem and it HAD to either be an issue with their firmware or that my hardware was failing. They want to try the hardware route and I'm fine with that, but it has to be a firmware problem.

Unfortunately, the hardware route isn't an option for me - warranty is already expired on my unit. Given the lack of frequent firmware releases, it may be 6 months or more before I get resolution on this.

I had the same problem with my WRT3200. After downgrading the firmware to the previous version ( http://downloads.linksys.com/downloads/firmware/FW_WRT3200ACM_184.108.40.206063_prod.img), this issue seems to be fixed.
