R7000 Firmware Version V1.0.7.6_1.1.99 Locking up

My R7000 Firmware Version V1.0.7.6_1.1.99 keeps locking up.  I cannot attach to an SSID even though I can see my SSID.  Just before it locks up I loose DNS and access to the web.  I still have a PC IP address.  The only thing I can do is power cycle the R7000.  I am using charter but I don't think thats the issue because cycling the power on the router sloves the issue.  It happens about every 10 minutes or so.

 

I would rather not downgrade firmware.

Did you reset to defaults when you updated FW?

Did not know I needed to reset, so I reset to factory an hour ago and so far so good.

You're welcome,

 

Resetting although painful at times is a best practise.

Thanks, still working great.

 

Would a backup before updating then restoring after work or would the backup of an older version be an issue as well?

Using a backup from a previous FW is a bad idea. Actually back ups are like sharing a needle, it's risky in all scenarios.
