[Hardware] Belkin N750db needs resetting
I'm using my Belkin N750db as my main router for my Verizon FIOS. I don't use their TV service so I can remove the router they give me and hook the Belkin directly to the Verizon service and configure it. It works great and the reason I chose this one was because I needed 5GHz support which the Verizon router does not offer and I have liked the Belkin brand as a close second to Netgear. I got a deal on the Belkin so I chose it. What I'm having a problem with is it seems that every couple days the router needs to be reset or some devices won't connect to the Wifi. I know it has the Self-Heal feature that you can set but this seems rather dumb to have. Why does a router need to be restarted in order to provide uninterrupted access? I have a SonicWall router at my place of business and I never have to reset it. I know friends who have Linksys and they always have to reset them. Is this just how these home devices are?

#1 Do you have any wired computers?
#2 If so: Do you have to reset the router for them to access the net, every couple of days?
#3 After logging into the router, you see a status screen that looks something like the sample screen shot at
portforward.com -> Guides -> Router Screenshots Collection -> Belkin -> F9K1103v1 -> Status
a) What is the firmware on your router?
For example in that sample screen shot: Firmware 1.00.45 (2011/10/28 6:37:11)
b) Is UPnP Enabled?
c) Is WPS Enabled?
d) What level of wireless encryption is used? For example WEP
