R6700 needs to reset constantly

Hello All 

I'm using firmware v1.0.2.8 on r6700 and it keeps losing connection several times a day.  is this a firmware issue or do i need a new router?

First reboot, then upgrade to V1.0.2.16_10.0.57. I never have to reboot this version. If that doesn't work, try another wall wart with the same output voltage and amps if you can find one.

netgear updated the firmware automatically, cheers hoping that was the issue.  i'll update when it goes down again.

Internet just went down again. Nighthawk app said we had strong connection speeds this evening. Now nothing!?

Enabled QoS hoping this will prioritize bandwidth.

QoS didn’t help. Time to get a new router ?

Exactly same pb on R7800 since the latest firmware updates

Mine was flaky until I downgraded to the firmware that was recommended above (which predates the Armor misfeature), and TURNED OFF AUTOUPDATE.  The first time I stepped it back, I neglected to nix the autoupdate, and it ran just fine for a bit under 18 hours before it reinstalled the bugs and then crashed before lunch.  Since stepping it back and killing the update option, it runs solid and stable.
