RAX80 Issues Getting Worse

I purchased the RAX80 in March.  I called tech support becuae the router keeps having issues.  The firmware is current.  My in ternet provider checked my fiber and it is fine.  My devices keep dropping out.  I turned off the smart connect feature.  That helped some.  This moring the wifi just quit working.  After hours of trouble shooting it came back on.  But, this is a recurring theme.  I purchaed this item new for $400.


Now I am already looking at replacing this router.  I thought it would help, but it has actually had more issues than my older router.  


Half the time my Nighthawk App cannot even detect the router.  This seems to be a technical issue.  But, Netgear says it only covers hardware for a year.   I am frustrated that the issues have not been resolved with firmware updates.  In Fact, most firmaware updates seem to bring newer, more complicated issues.

Hello semerine,


May you provide the firmware version your RAX80 is currently on.
