R8000P "Hard Resetting" itself randoly

This morning I woke up and had no internet and, after some troubleshooting, realized that my R8000P had reset itself...again.


This has occurred four times - about once a month.  The router works fine for weeks at a time and then it suddenly resets itself.


The SSIDs get set to the default names and I lose all my configuration.


The solution is to restore my configuration.


Has anyone experienced this problem?  I'm assuming it's a hardware problem.

Yes. There have been several reports of this.


Hard to tell what is going on. No one from Netgear has responded.


One thought is that it might help to disable automatic firmware updates, if that is enabled on your router.

I would not make that assumption. Unless there has been a bad batch of hardware.
