If you buy a netgear (WNDR4500) router don't upgrade to Firmware v18.104.22.168_1.0.63:
After the last update, the router would lose it's WAN connection after ~30 minutes
Release / Renew fixed WAN connection on every drop, but only temporarily
Using in AP mode causes the light to flash green/amber. As I recall, I saw a setting to enable/disable this. I left it checked.
Downgrading to the previous firmware V22.214.171.124_1.0.40, has fixed the WAN connection problem.
Fios support would not offer any help with the drop wan connect issue because it's not their router. I still think their support database should have known about the netgear firmware issue and been a bit more helpful.
