| | Channel?
I've got that router. The firmware version she's running has a known issue with streaming video and audio, but I don't believe it to be related to the problems you've described. Her particular issue sounds more like a channel problem to me. I had problems with my connection dropping and then coming right back.... and often times it couldn't renew the IP number so I'd get an unusable connection until I power cycled the router. Some say this is due to newer cordless phone frequencies in use within a fairly close proximity to your router. I don't have a cordless but there are several units in my building.
I would try the following, until you find a channel that keeps your connection alive;
Go to the admin page on your router (192.168.1.1) and go to the wireless setup tab. From there, change the wireless channel until you find one that works for you. There are 11 channels, but I've found that 5 works best in my environment.
Hope this helps.
