Nighthawk R7000 Needs Resetting

Nighthawk R7000 Needs Resetting

In the past i've had issues where I had to reset constantly throughout the day, but thankfully that was fixed by going back to stable firmware - V1.0.9.42_10.2.44. I rarely had any issues until now.


Like many others I'm working from home and doing stuff all day long - in the past two weeks some days i need to reset multiple times, other days it's just once. Sometimes it's down when i wake up, other times it goes down while I'm working (like just now).


My first step is to plug it into a different outlet on my power bar - failing that I will try direct-to-wall. 
After that I will try a new DC Adapter - is there a preferred/recommended one? The current one is 100-240V, 50/60Hz, 1.2A max with an output of 12V - 3.0A. 
After that, is the router just dying a slow death? I really don't need it **bleep**ing up client meetings and presentations, and i've gone through the ringer with this stupid thing but it seemed like it was finally stable. No more!

Only if you call Netgear bad netgear firmware a slow death. You are on the last that folks feel is ok. 

Netgear has not put out a good firmware for 2 years IMHO. Why I got rid of a r8000 and r8000p and went else where.

Yeah I can promise you this is my last netgear device, I'm thoroughly unhappy with it from the firmware perspective - it caused so much stress when i couldn't figure out WTF was wrong with it!


it seems like this most current issue has been solved by changing the outlet on the power strip that i was plugged into... no resets since i did it
