No wifi connection on N300 router


No wifi connection on N300 router

I have an N300 (WNR2000v4) that worked perfectly for 8 months and then started disconnecting.  After several weeks of rebooting the router on a daily basis (after which it would work fine) and updating the router's firmware, I am no longer receiving any signal from the router.  I still see the wireless network listed, but when I try to connect I receive a limited or no connectivity message.  My modem works fine, and all of my devices work fine when plugged directly into the modem via ethernet cable.


I've tried connecting my computer to the router via ethernet cable to check for additional firmware updates, but there is no connectivity and I can't access the Netgear Genie.


Any suggestions? The hardware seems to still be under warranty, so should I reguest a new router?
