Wireless-G Constantly Hangs on the Actiontec MI424WR FiOS Modem/Router

I've switched over to the Verizon FiOS plan for almost a year now. And during the switch, Verizon provided the Actiontec MI424WR FiOS Modem/Router to connect to their fiber optics service. One thing I noticed is that the 802.11g portion of this router constantly freezes. Once it's hung, the client wireless computers are still connected, but no communication occurs. The wired ethernet portion of the router still worked and computers on the wired portion talked to the Internet and each other just fine. The only way to reset its wireless functionality, without turning the entire device off and on, is to log in, disable the wireless portion, and then re-enable it.

So far, I have no clue to what causes the wireless portion of the router to hang. If you have any idea, please do share it with us.

I finally given up the 802.11g wireless function on this router. I turned the functionality off and attached a separate wireless-G access point. The separate access point is now sucking more electricity, but at least I don't have to deal with a broken wireless G connection all the time.
