Awesome when it isn't crashing...

Summary: This router works awesome when it isn't crashing.... The router consistently crashes and disconnects me from the internet. Online gaming is impossible with this router thanks to this. There hasn't been a firmware update since 2012 either, so WD has decided that it is apparently "good enough".
