It's best to always perform a factory reset after an update.

Readycloud router connection to portal is NOT working with new fw 1.0.1.128.

Which ReadyCLOUD client?

 

v 1.20 is the most recent.

 

It mends a hole that Microsoft made in a recent Windows update.

Re: RAX120 Router Random Disconnects

This probably won’t help regarding disconnects but I stumbled across an article about EMF radiation in electrical wiring. Went and bought a EMF plug in analyzer and found many of my outlets were WAY above acceptable levels. Had no clue this was even a thing with electrical wiring. Went and bought some plug in EMF filters and it brought my outlets down to below 50 on my microsurge meter (50 and below was acceptable) and my router seems to be much better....minimal buffering (hardly ever) and strong signal. On some outlets in my home I was getting readings as high as 750 which is way out of whack. I read were high EMF in electrical lines can cause electrical devices not to perform as well as they should and it can be a health risk too due to radiation involved. Just putting that out their to make sure your electrical wiring is within specs so devices perform the way they should be.

Placesandspaces, FYI - You may also wish to consider the use of an uninterruptible power supply (e.g., see here); which provides EMI/RFI filtration, surge suppression, and automatic voltage regulation – together with battery backup (using sine wave output).

Re: RAX120 Router Random Disconnects

I am a novice with routers and I am extremely frustrated with constant disconnects and reboots.

 

I do not know what it means to manually set DNS server for each device.  Could someone please explain.

You can't. But why do you want to do that?

 

This is a long running discussion that has wandered all over the place. The subject, "random disconnects", could be down to many things.

 

If you have problems, start a new discussion in the right place that lays out your issues and describes your setup. So far, we know not much.

Re: RAX120 Router Random Disconnects

Was on a live chat with Netgear moderators and I brought up the topic of dirty electricity affecting modems and routers and appliances. All of them knew about it except one and agreed it can be a significant problem. Definitely has improved my routers performance. I had several outlets that were way to high for dirty electricity so I needed more of a home kit solution. Sine Wave looks impressive though.
