Devices not connecting

My Nighthawk could be running well for days and then I need to reboot it to get wifi devices to attach to it.  I am running the latest firmware.  Not sure why i have to reboot all the time to get the devices to connect.

Re: Devices not connecting

What devices lose the connection?

 

What firmware version do you have on the R6700v2?

A number is more useful than "the latest". (It may not be by the time people read this.) There can also be newer versions, or "hot fixes", that do not show up if you check for new firmware in the browser interface.

 

Did you reset the router to factory settings after the latest firmware flash?

New firmware sometimes introduces changes that are not compatible with the old configuration.

So while it isn't guaranteed to fix problems a factory reset is the first thing to try if you have issues with new firmware.

This is a nuisance because you then have to reconfigure the device all over again.

You can backup your settings before you reset and restore them later. But that may just bring back the fault. Then again, at least you will know if the reset fixed the problem.

Just another user.
