The Netgear worked great for about 6 months but in the past two weeks has become very unstable - with frequent disconnects.
According to the software update built into the router web interface, I am running the latest version
I used to have the modem horizontal, and changed it to a vertical mounting - and I am not sure if that triggered the instability. After reading about this (even though the suggestion was the opposite), I have removed it from the vertical mount position and will post an update if I see any change
I lose connectivity to the Internet, but my local connection (network drives, printers, etc) remain intact

Have you thought of any event or change that may have coincided with your issues?
Did your issues perhaps start after a FW upgrade? What FW version are you on? I'm running FW version V188.8.131.52_16.0.48 and I don't upgrade my FW since I don't have any issues and IMHO doing so is looking for trouble.
Since you did read about it, is or was your router running hot? The idea mentioned here about having the router vertical on the stand it came with has to do with heat dissipation. Although if you read the manuals, they recommend one orientation or the other to suit how you may prefer the signal to be projected.
Based on this it is a possibility that your WAN port is failing. There may be other reasons of course, but no other comes to mind at the moment.

It does an auto-check each time I log into the Web management interface
The router seems normal... It doesn't feel hot
...whether stored vertically or horizontally. When it works, it works well.
The one other thing that comes to mind is that for some reason it's losing track of the IP assigned by my ISP - and restarting causes the N600 to go back to my cable modem and request the IP
If I learn anything of significance, I'll add it to this thread.
