Internet Connection lost every couple of minutes

I am having this problem over wifi, ping tests reveal it's happening at same time to two different devices, so I am narrowing it down to the router. I don't have a modem since our ethernet is hard-wired into our home from a control room.

Re: Loses Internet Connection every couple of minutes

So what was your solution?

I don't have a modem, and running ping-tests on two different devices show a timeout of service at the same time, which tells me something is wrong with the router.

Re: Loses Internet Connection every couple of minutes

Paxskins, you may have the same symptoms, but the cause of your issue is likely to be completely different, (so I split your posts to a new thread).

Since you say that your Internet is provided from ‘hard-wired’ connection it’s highly likely that you are connected to a router downstream, if you look at the WAN (Internet) IP address allocated to the R7000 is it Public or Private?

If private then you could try setting the R7000 to Access Point (AP) mode.
