Nighthawk R7000 wifi dropping

Yeah, its getting old.. but really I have had no issues until recently. I upgraded firmware to the latest... and now it just randomly stops the wifi signal. You can see the SID, hit connect and it wont connect... I can still use wired just fine. I have to reboot, then its good for a day or two...

 

I have NO clue what the last Firware I had was... is there a way to find out? and how to I downgrade?

 

Thanks!

Re: Nighthawk R7000 wifi dropping

downgrading is pretty easy. 

the version I'd recommend would be version 1.0.9.42

I'd install it over a hardwired connection (not wifi/app). 

to do so, download the firmware, extract it, and then just follow the manual firmware update process. Just use the firmware you downloaded. 

here's where to get the firmware:

manual firmware update process:
