Bulldog broadband: broken?

Anyone else having problems with either Bulldog Broadband or Netgear routers?

I’m discovering most mornings that my broadband connection is either dead or pretending to be. Router status says I’m connected at supermegafastspeed, but opening a page or email takes five minutes if it works at all. The only solution seems to be to reboot the router, after which everything seems fine again.

So the problem’s either Bulldog or my router, and if it’s the latter it’s Netgear-specific (I’ve had the same issues with two different Netgear routers).

Anyone got any ideas?
