So, here's something odd. After shutting down for the night, by the next morning, all the PCs on my network can't connect to the router any more. I need to power-cycle the router for them to be able to connect to the network again. Despite this, the Wifi works fine, and any tablet/phone in the apartment stays connected no problem. It's ONLY affecting directly connected, networked units.

 

Yesterday I went through a lot of resets and updates, I have a new screen when going into the router settings, and thought that would do it... Today, the same issue. This is getting ridiculously frustrating.

I've seen this same problem with one of my client's routers.

 

Its a hardware issue with the router itself. As Jon stated, you'll need to contact Verizon and get a replacement.
