R7000 in Bridged Mode losing connection

This topic seems to be fairly prevalent in this and other forums, however, I've not seem a resolution published from Netgear so looking for support on this.

- R7000 loses connection (yes, everything on the 7000 wired to the 7000's enthernet)

-Cannot reach the 7000 wirelessly from main WiFi as can be done when it is not malfunctioning.

-This failure occurs on current firmware and past 3-4 versions of firmware at least

-Router operated fine in Bridged Mode for over a year before it began losing connection regularly

-Yes it has been reset and manually reconfigured after each upgrade.

-Yes it can be fixed by restarting router.

 

Please advise if this problem is going to be fixed.

Thank you

Have you tested the issue by reverting back 1 firmware and seeing if that still happens?

Ive been using the router on every firmware including the last version.  It didn't work then, or the one before that, and it doesn't work now.

It's the router disconnecting from the internet randomly.  It's been happening for years with no fix.  Should be recalled.
