RAX120v2 LAN & WiFi Disconnects


RAX120v2 LAN & WiFi Disconnects

Hello I own the RAX120V2.

I factory resets after performing a manual firmware upgrade multiple times.

Wether it’s every hour or every 2-3 hours,
ALL wifi disconnects (wifi band disappears) and all LAN devices disconnect EXCEPT for the 1 device I had under static reservation.

Can someone please give me a firmware fix or do I have to manually assign IPS to everything?

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?

What devices do you have connected? 

What channels are you using? Auto? Try Auto and 48 on 5Ghz. Or try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and 40 to 48 channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?


Are there any LED inidications seen when this happens on the router?

I’m not answering all these details.

This is clearly an issue with the firmware. I’ve seen tons of posts about this.

Every other router works fine.
XR1000,R2, all asus routers….

What is the firmware fix for this
