Nighthawk X6 R8000, Loosing 2,4ghz band

Hey there,

Nighthawk X6 R8000 Router.

Firmware: V1.0.4.46_10.1.63


Ive got a Nighthawk X6, R8000 router that keep "loosing" the 2,4´ghz band.

I can see the 2.4ghz band on my phone, on my laptop, but I cant connect to it, even tho it shows up. 

I cant use my sonos speakes, since they run on 2.4ghz but they have lost connection aswell.

Cant use my chromecast either.


The 2.4ghz band looks online and everything, but when I try too connect, it timeout or just wont connect.


Thanks in advance,


Ps. The 5ghz band works just fine.

Have you tried a factory reset and manual re-install? That version that you're on got netgear armor. It made quite significant changes. Thi susually fixes it but if it doesnt, you can try downgrading to the version prior to armor. 


Current setup: CAX80->Trendnet TEG-S380->GS716T-> RBK752->pi-hole
