    I'm having exactly the same issue. Brand new iMac running OS 10.5. I can surf the web, use widgets, connect to shared folders on other computers, download from iTunes, etc. But when I try to run Software Update on the iMac, my router (Netgear WPN824)crashes and has to be power-cycled.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try downloading your needed updates from here.

    http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/

    I've never come across a Netgear router being crashed by a HTTP download before. A BT Homehub router will crash the moment it connects to the internet however.

    I would also suggest that both of you look for firmware updates to your routers.

    I've also got a WPN824, and it is also being crashed - though for me it's when I update Eclipse. Seems it has a major issue with large downloads of some varieties... very frustrating.
