Most likely under wireless, all these firmware's are different so it's not so easy giving exact directions.

Actually; I have found its better to go to a channel thats in the middle; as less people such as neighbors etc will be likely to use the middle channels as they may not know any better. I would go to like channel 6 or 7.

That channel is already in use by the neighbor. Lets not add any confusion here please.

The channel over lap is from a guest account on the same router, the signals are sitting right on top of each other.

Wireless had nothing about guest networks. This, however, was interesting under "check connection."

I'm not sure what that means, the problem here is the guest account being on the same channel with a complete overlap of the channel you are trying to use. That is the reason you had disconnections in the first place.

After that you begin messing with the drivers which caused all the other problems. The extra account didn't even show up in the first screen shot from Xirrus so perhaps resetting your router then reconfiguring the wireless would help.

Either way the channel over lap from the guest account is most likely the cause of the dropped connections so it needs to be fixed.

I reset it, changed the channel to 7, it still says one network is overlapping. If it helps, there is always one other, sometimes two others using the network at the same time I am.

What's the model number of this Netgear router?

Until those guest networks are disabled you will continue to have problems but maybe I can look up the .pdf for the firmware and find the setting for this.

Jumping in for a moment

This is a DSL router correct?
You have the netgear wireless cabled router to a DSL router - correct?
I don't think that's the model number - could you post a screen shot of the main router page?
