R7900 connection speed to modem drop considerably after several days

Ever since the last firmware update (V1.0.2.10_10.0.29) I notice that after several days of running the router after a reboot my tested speeds (tested using the built in speed test in the router on the QOS page) drops from my 270Mbps down to anywhere from 170Mbps to as low as 30Mbps. A simple router reboot corrects the problem, but it reoccurs in less than a week.

I have factory reset the router and I do not run QOS.

Anyone else seeing this?

Would love someone at Netgear to look at this as I think it is a firmware issue.

Sorry. No solution other than what I just did... a reboot. I have an R7900P from Costco and have similar issue. I tested inside the router and got about 65 down and 5 up. I then tried a WiFi speed test several times and was getting about 30 down 5 up. Have had all sorts of random issues since buying this router in December. Firmware is 1.3.0.10 v1.2.2
