Re: CAX30 5ghz issues

This is on netgear this is a firmware problem i was able to recreate the firmware bug that the latest update created, turn on your TM and reboot you gonna lose internet connection turn it off it will come back, am about ready to give up on this for years ive been using TENDA without any headaches bought this nighthawk because of it sleek look and specs using it for 14months twice i already factory reset, once it factory reset itself its always the wifi radios never have problem with the wired connection, i might use this as a modem and buy me a router i guess if netgear doesnt do anything

NG is already aware of the issue. 


So please downgrade the CAX30 and see if this helps. Others have already posted that it solved there problem.
