WiFi speed drops with firmware 1.0.9.26_10.2.31

I use the R7000 AC1900 as AP, only on 2.4 GHz.

It offers great coverage throughout the house.

Since I updated to firmware 1.0.9.26_10.2.31 I saw the speed on WiFi drop to approx 3 Mbps.

The WAN connection also dropped regularly.

After downgrading to V1.0.9.14_1.2.25 speeds and connectivity are stable again.

 

Anyone with similar issues?

QoS is not available when using the R7000 as an AP.

But I gave FW V1.0.9.26_10.2.31 another try ... and this time WiFi speeds are back to normal!

I have no idea why... but something is different (and I did not change any settings appart from the firmware version).

Re: WiFi speed drops with firmware 1.0.9.26_10.2.31

Hello,


I am still relucant to upgrade from V1.0.9.6_1.2.19 to 1.0.9.26_10.2.31.  Firmware V1.0.9.6_1.2.19 might have security holes but at least has been the most stable from earlier releases.

 

I have 1 R7000 as router and  2 R7000 as AP's.  Reading this post I am still not convident to upgrade even my 2 R7000 AP's.

 

Netgear please release a firmware that works for all modes and no WIFI issues please.

 

Brgds,


Bas.

Same with me but narrowed to be more flakey specifically with the 2.4GHz devices for me.  Connected devices not showing properly also part of what I saw as a problem, and still is.

- Turned off QoS and it has been fine since, at least for me.

- Went back to earlier version on same router then all was OK also for me. 

 

This FW is definately a bad one.

 

Try turning off QoS I guess as a quick check, maybe it will help you too. (and you can keep the FW with the security patches) I do want QoS back again though so I am looking forward to an update for sure.
