R6400v2 AC1750 - firmware v1.0.4.118 and v1.0.4.120 is not suitable for use

The last two software updates (v1.0.4.118 and v1.0.4.120) for R6400V2 are one great tragedy. Problems with opening pages, a problem with downloading several files at the same time.
The only solution was a return to v1.0.4.106.

Thanks for posting!

you're not the only one with issues on the latest firmware and the more people that post, the more likely the mods/engineers will see it.

Thank you for your post.  Our two computers started having trouble opening pages recently.  Since it happened on two different computers, I suspected the router.  Our router has the firmware V1.0.4.120_10.0.91.  Additionally, router admin software "Attached Devices" no longer works although the "Access Control" under the "Advanced" tab will show connected devices.

In my case, it was very important that after returning to firmware v1.0.4.106 I did a factory reset. Without a reset the router performed better than on the latest firmware but still not as it should be.
BTW factory reset with firmware v1.0.4.118 or v1.0.4.120 does not help.

After loading firmware version V1.0.4.120_10.0.91 I had trouble loading, or fully loading some web pages.  Some pages didn't load at all while Microsoft teams was being used.  I corrected it by deselected anything that had been selected in the QoS setup. Specifically for me the Enable WMM selections needed to be unchecked

Same here with R6400v2 on V1.0.4.120_10.0.91

Every time I'm trying to open wesite I'm getting error that website is unavailable.

Started after I updated from R6400v2-V1.0.4.106_10.0.80


This is unaccaptable and must be fixed ASAP, but at this point, I think that netgear dev team just useless and can't fix it, since this error is present for the 2nd firmware version in a row.

 

I will appreceate any good router recommendation for smart home with 50+ devices.

My patience has run out. Goodbye Netgear software, hello (after a few years off) FreshTomato software.
God bless Shibby.
