RAX120 Configuration and firmware

Greetings,

Does anyone have firmware ver. and configuration settings that work well all I want is screaming fast wifi with no buffering?

I have spectrum with 400Mbps.

 

 I just purchased the RAX120 since I've been using Netgear routers for may years.

Well I have been very disappointed in the performance, I loved the initial speeds on Wifi but my devices keep disconnecting, apparently a common issue.

My initial wifi speeds were in the 450 - 460Mbps range, but streaming on wifi I get the buffering and no connection symptoms.

Could only reach a chat support person who had me make configuration changes to the router, reboot Cable modem and Router which made my speed drop down to 24Mbps.

I backed out some of the changes until I got back to 450 - 460Mbps range, but still get buffering etc.

I'm on the verge of returning.

I would truly appreciate any help.

Thank you for the suggestion I will try it this weekend when I get home.

 

I also noticed every  morning when I check the log it says up time for the router is anywhere from 1hour to 3.x hours I don't believe it should be going down every night.

Thanks again.

Whats the log saying so can tell if its not a isp drop from modem or a router reboot. Usual questions & answers.
Are you on the latest firmware? If so how did you upgrade did you try a pin hole reset ?

Even if the ISP did drop that wouldn't necessary cause the router to reboot would it?

I can't check this till the weekend.

Thanks for the help, Bob

Not normally but it is Netgear if that carries on I would try a pin hole reset and see if that sorts it if not try reinstalling software again via lan (ethernet) then when all up running do another pin hole and start fresh.
