D7000 periodically losing internet

I recently started to lose internet connection with my D7000 ADSL WiFi router 2-3 times a day. During this period WiFi network remains working without internet access. I have to restart the router to get internet access again.
This might have started to happen after upgrading to latest firmware v1.0.1.50, still not sure if this is the reason.
I tried factory resetting the router but problem remained.
To confirm that its not an ADSL line issue, I used my old netgear N150 ADSL router in place of D7000, and no internet drops happened!

Your advice is highly appreciated.

It will get worse and they won't fix it.

Re: D7000 periodically losing internet

I have a R7000 that worked great for 3 years. I would restart it every 6 months just for maintenance. I would always upgrade the firmware when a new verson would come out. A few months ago I started having issues with losing my internet connection evey week. I tried resetting to factory defaults older firmware, I got a laptop cooler and placed the router on top, nothing worked. I switched to dd-wrt firmware and it up and runing for 5 weeks straight now.

Thank you for the note.

Unfortuanately, dd-wrt doesnt support ADSL routers like D7000.

Re: D7000 periodically losing internet

Did you "factory reset" the thing after the firmware flash?

Just another user.
