R7900P Firmware - Daily Router Reboots needed after any FW after V1.1.4.6

Netgear R7900 router was running great until version 1.2.1.6. For this version and any version past this, the router stops working about 24 hours after. A reboot will make it work again for the next 24 hours or so. 

 

I've tried everything after upgrading to the newer versions (they have been 4 or so since 1.1.4.6), factory reset, keeping the default settings, but only reverting back to 1.1.4.6 seems to keep a stable connection. I'm at my wits end trying to make this work. 

 

Netgear support just gives a boilerplate non helpful answer. What am I missing?

What does stops working mean in this context?

 

Wifi dies? All bands? Internet dies?

Just another user.

Sorry I wasn't clearer. It's the internet connectivity that dies. The wifi bands seem fine.

Me too. My internet connection will die every few days. The cable modem is good. Wifi signal to wireless devices is strong. Only the R7900P needs to be rebooted to restore internet connection.

I eneded up giving up. Returned the router and got an Eero. Haven't had to reboot in months. 🙂

Updating firmware to the latest version: 1.3.0.10 , and performing a factory reset solved all of my disconnect issues. Router has been running for well over a month with no issues.
