Nighthawk RAX43 Factory Reset


Nighthawk RAX43 Factory Reset

Hi all,
Last night all of the sudden I lost my WiFi connection on my phone and any other devices connected around the house.

After further investigation I noticed that my nighthawk router has done a factory reset to itself by itself and reset the Wi-Fi original name and password.

so I connected my laptop to the router and started the setup again.

Have anyone ever experienced such thing where the router automatically factory reset itself? Why would you do that.

Did you have a sudden power outage? These things can happen if power goes off and back on. My RAX43 has been stable as a rock thus far. There's just new firmware available for it so I flashed it with no issues

Routing: NETGEAR RAX43 - Firmware: v1.0.15.128 (1 Gbps down, 40 Mbps up)
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (GS116v2)
Desktop: AMD Ryzen 9 5900X - Server: Intel Core i7-7700K - NAS: Intel Pentium G4400, 20 TB
