NightHawk X6 R8000 Internet after latest firmware update V1.0.4.68_10.1.75

I updated my Router with version V1.0.4.68_10.1.75

after it was updated I cleared to factory and configured it once again.  Everythign works fine for several minutes and then it seems to loose internet connectivity.  if I wait a few minutes it seems to come back.  It just keeps doing that.

 

What Have I tried:

 

I reverted back to the older firmware V1.0.4.66_10.1.75 but issue was not resolved and is persistant.

I removed it from the equation and confirmed I had no issues with my provider's router.  It ran for 24 hrs without issue

I reconnected it and approx 10-15 minutes after it started doing the same thing and internet would not be available.

 

I am not sure what else to try. 

 

Please help.

Re: NightHawk X6 R8000 Internet after latest firmware update V1.0.4.68_10.1.75

I have had the exact same problem with the latest Fimware (V1.0.4.68_10.1.75) and have reverted back to the last 5 Firmware updates with the same problem.

I have finally found that R8000-V1.0.4.28_10.1.54 is the Firmware that works for me and is completely stable.

 

It has been frustrating reloading the older Firmwares on each occassion and not sure if the problem is on NetGear's side or my older 2012 computer - Lenovo T410. The latest and past few firmware updates may not be compatible with my older wi-fi card in my Lenovo ThinkPad T410 and/or other older copmponents.

 

You could do what I did and download the past Firmwares from the NetGear download site for the NightHawk R8000 X6 AC3200 and get to a stable verion that suites your computer as I did but I have found V1.0.4.28_10.1.54 to work for me.

 

Best of luck - very frustrating!
