R8000 WiFi dropping every 5-10 minutes

I’ve had this router for 3-4 years now, tried to keep it up to date. But recently updated my R8000 to the latest firmware and it instantly started acting up. And when I what I mean by that is EVERY 5-10 MINUTES IT WOULD DROP MY WIFI. On multiple devices (TV, Xbox One X, Laptop, Phone, Ect.) I cant even get a full game of Modern Warfare in without it booting me.

I’ve tried everything from rebooting, factory resetting, and downgrading firmware. Nothing seems to fix the issue. Does anyone have a idea what could cause this? Or is the product just getting old?

What version of firmware is installed. Number, not something like latest.

 

If this happened after firmware update you could try a reset and reconfigure. However, latest versions of Netgear firmware have been, latest say, less then steller. Would suggest you reinstall the version you had that was working for you. After that turn off auto update if it is on.
