I have set up a couple of Cisco WAP4410N Wireless-N Access Point's with a Billion ADSL2
modem/router. The internet drops out every hour or so. I reset the router and all
is ok.

2 questions, what is the best ADSL router suited to the Cisco WAP4410N?
Best way to find out why internet drops out i.e. adsl router, or ISP or WAP's

Cheers.

Those are really "Linksys" WAP4410Ns rebranded as Cisco.  Most of that stuff is very shoddy at best.  You can't count on anything you can buy from a big box store.

That said, are all of your APs on different channels?

Most ADSL routers are also sub par.  I prefer the true Cisco ADSL modems (SA500s) and good access points.  Last set of APs we used were the 1130s - very reliable.

You'll be around $1000 per installation, but you will have *no* issues.  Most ISPs don't even have good "head-end" equipment, however, so investing in good gear at your customer site may not prove wise.  If you can't get a real CC-something from your ISP, change ISPs.  Best to stick with the "good 'ol" standards like T-circuits or metro Ethernet.  If your ISP can't offer Cisco CPE, time to reconsider.

orbistechnology, the SA500s are just routers, not modems?

kdearing, do you really think a firmware jolt will fix the issue?

How do I isolate where the problem is, ISP or Router?

If rebooting the Billion router (and doing nothing else) fixes the problem, then the router is the problem.
I have seen firmware updates fix intermittent connectivity problems.

In my experience, you've got a 20% chance of firmware fixing your problem.
If not, then you'll need to replace it.
