It's one or the other........your ISP or your router.  My guess is it's your router.  Try reseting your router (something, I'm surprised Netgear support didn't walk you through).  Shut down your computer.  Unplug your router from the electrical source for 3 to 5 minutes then plug back in.  Once the lights have settled to their normal blinking routine boot your computer back up and try SL again. 

 

Just a note for information.  Netgear has a history of disconnecting..........not just for SL, but for general Internet activities.

This is a known issue with some Netgear routers. A number of people have reported this on Answers. One person went so far as to try and get Linden Lab's technical department to meet with Netgear to sort it out. Netgear requested this meeting but LInden Lab did not respond so in the end Netgear gave up.

I got one other suggestion (aside from getting a new router).  It might be a heating issue.  I had a Linksys router that had that problem and I overcame it by using a small book stand to elevate a little so more air could get to the bottom of the router.  That "fix" worked for about 3 years without any further problems until I recently replaced the router with a new one.

 

If you are looking for a new router, I can recommend Vizio.  That's the router I replaced the Linksys with and it's worked flawlessly from day one.  It has a great feature that none of the other routers I've had.  The wireless connections are locked down by default instead of wide open.  You have to enter a passcode for using the wireless device to gain access to the network...........that prevents your neighbor from piggybacking on your connection or some yo-yo walking down the street with their iPhone watching porn using your IP.  It's priced about the same as Netgear and a way better router.
