XR500 Random Reboot Question

My XR-500 randomly reboots, I've went through all the thread on this forum pertaining to this issue and tried all the fixes I could. Recently though , after googling "XR500 power supply", I realized the pictures of XR500 power supplies have a different amperage output then the one that I currently have. The one I have is rated at 1.0a output and the ones on Google are 3.5a.. (I'm wondering, did Netgear change the power supply over time?)

 

. I went ahead and bought one and just plugged it in about 15 minutes ago. I usually get reboots 2-3 times per day so I guess I'm going to have to wait longer to really find out if the new power supply will fix this problem. In the meantime I just wanted to share this and wondered if anyone else thinks this could be the solution to this weird problem.

Power supply would be the first place I'd look for a rebooting issue yes, whether NG have upped the ampage over time I couldn't be sure, I'd be interested to see your results.

Thanks, so far today I've been on and off the computer and no reboots. If I go a week without any reboots I can consider it the solution. I read in one of the threads that I researched that features implemented in the OS from updating firmware  made the CPU draw more power.

 

I'll keep you guys updated ..

Sorry for not updating on time. It's been well over a week any way since I made this thread and my router hasn't rebooted since. 🙂
