Losing wireless signal

[link to this post]
What can cause a wireless signal to drop?

Got a Netgear DG834Gv5 and every so often the wireless will just die. Its random and sometimes its fine for a month, other times it may need rebooting after 3 days. Rebooting fixes it so its not a major issue, just wondered why it happens. The PC which is wired still works fine when the wireless doesnt

It can usually connect to the wireless router but wont connect to any websites. Sometimes my phone wont work on wireless, but the PS3 will. Again rebooting fixes it but dunno why it happens in the first place

There may be many reasons for signal drop like:
Incompatible Software Packages Installed
Overloading / Overheating the Wireless Access Point
Network Driver or Firmware Upgrade Required and many more.
you have to care for all these issues.
