Best bet is to back level the firmware, not sure what the latest known good is and do a reset/reconfigure. 


Better yet buy a router from someone other then Netgear. Their firmware is crap and has been for months now with no end in sight.

Same here. Just upgraded to V1.0.4.46_10.1.63 and having the EXACT same issue. Can no longer see the 2.4ghz network or even connect to it.
