I have been trying to pinpoint the problem but there doesn't seem to be any one issue.

Everything was working fine for 3 days. Than yesterday when I started using the laptop(6235 Intel wifi card) and Apple TV. It started losing connection again. Of course, I than thought that Apple TV was causing the issue. Restarted my routers and removed it. However, the problem with Internet disconnection became even more pronounced.

I checked system logs when I lost connection and there isn't any logs whatsoever. Thus, it doesn't seem to be connected to the vlan own address issue.

This is really frustrating.

U just bought the router not long ago.. yet so many problems.. why not you try to enjoy what you have and dont focus on its bugs? Hahas. I have learnt to ignore the bugs and just continue with life..
