So after recently updating to a Netgear DGN2200 (After thinking our DG834G was faulty for the exact same problem), have been having issues with it and my iOS devices. Half of the time, they can't even detect the network, and when they do, it can just drop out for minutes at a time. But the problem is non-existant on every other device.

I have gone through every setting I could find on the router to no luck. Current security is WPA2, but have tried all the others, and have tried all Channels too. Have also factory reset and restored all the iOS devices to no luck either.

Any suggestions? Unless I have very bad luck and just got faulty iOS devices.

(Forgot to mention, SSID is set to visable, and happens with guest networks too).

Change the wireless mode to 145Mbps instead of 300Mbps and leave the channel settings on "Auto".

Give that a shot :)

You might also try setting the problem devices to a static IP.

I have tried all 3 wireless modes, tried all the channel modes etc to no effect.
Tried updating the firmware, and tried factory resets. My iPad and iPod have the problem, but it's minor compared to my phone.
What's the 30/30/30 trick though?
