It happened on two different routers (same model) with two different firmware files including the most current, so I ruled that out. Not to say it may be corrected with another update but the manufacturer has not acknowledged a problem.

Aren't there plenty of non dual band routers that are N rated? Mine is N rated but is single band, 2.4 GHz. As an aside I am being limited in my wireless connection speed. I've accepted that as a limitation of my wireless card and the crowded wireless in my area.

Channel was set to auto and have since changed it to 11 (I believe 1, 6 and 11 are the best choices). Although if all my neighbors are using those of course there will be conflict...see below.

No cordless phones on 2.4GHz. You really think interference from a neighbor (highly likely) would cause a complete disappearance of my SSID only?

When it happens I can see five other networks but I can't see mine. It is gone.

I can see interference of some sort causing a disconnect but I have not heard of it causing the SSID to completely disappear.
