It seems like a common problem. You get a new hub, it works great for a while, then it slowly begins to need a reset, more and more frequently. This has happened with my older airport and a recent netgear I purchased. These things dont have moving parts or anything, what is wearing out? Firmware resets dont help. I just replaced my netgear with a new Airport, which is running flawlessly; wonder how it will be in 6 months?
