Internet dropping every ten minutes, same time as lease renews.

I just bought the Netgear RAX42 router and every 10 minutes the signal drops for about 5 seconds and then comes right back on. The signal for the rest of the time is perfect, better than it has ever been, but as soon as the signal drops, I get kicked from whatever multiplayer game I'm playing. This problem is super inconvenient as I can't even play a full game without getting lagged out. Any suggestions?

Re: Internet dropping every ten minutes, same time as lease renews.

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?
Be sure your using a good quality LAN cable between the modem and router. CAT6 is recommended. 

 

Are you wireless or wire connected to the router?
