D7800 Nighthawk X4S - wifi disconnecting

Hi,

 

I have a D7800 Nighthawk X4S. Recently, my wifi has started disconnecting. I can see the wifi network but I can't connect. The wifi lights on the modem remain solid. I have to turn my modem off/on for wifi to work again. This is happening once or twice a day.

 

I am using the latest firmware (V1.0.1.56). I have also tried a factory reset.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

Scott.

Having the exact same problem.  Earlier posts indicate rolling the firmware back but to me this is not an option as I believe this model is already due for a new firmware update due to some sever security flaws... see https://www.tomsguide.com/news/netgear-security-firmware-patches.

 

Mr or Ms Netgear, please advise.

Hi guys,

Are you still experiencing these Wi-Fi dropouts? It seems to happen to me around the same time everyday when the SSIDs would just disappear and disconnect everyone.

Thanks

Ouch! I just got this router over the weekend and it drops the Wi-Fi out every single day without miss. Changed settings, factory reset twice already to no avail. Have i bought a lemon!?

Hi,

Is Netgear going to respond to these issues? I have had my Netgear D7800 Nighthawk AC2600 for a month and have had wifi drop out every day. These things aren't cheap.

Had the same issues.

Disable QoS (quality of service) function and it’ll work fine.
