Nothing but problems with Nighthawk

Ever since I purchased the Nighthawk I've had issues.  Every so often the router will decide that one of my devices does not need internet that day.  I check my Nighthawk app, no errors or messages of any kind, lights on the front look fine, power cycle sometimes works.  Give it a day or so and all of a sudden the internet on that device is back.  So far this is wireless only, wired devices seem to stay connected.  This has happened with iphone, ipad and 2 different laptops using wireless.  I've done all updates that show on app.  Firmware - V1.0.2.66_2.0.42

 

Anyone have any ideas or do I just trash this junk?

Re: Nothing but problems with Nighthawk

this would be the AX forum:
https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-Routers-with-WiFi-6-AX/bd-p/en-home-routers-nighthawk-wif...

might lookup as well to see what fibre modem it is. Some have their own integrated routers.
