Rax120 firmware 1.2.0.16

Every time i upgrade to the latest update 1.2.0.16 i have issues trying to connect with Facebook app. I sold have to jump off the wifi to gain access again. Rolled back the firmware to 1.0.2.136 and the problem goes away.

Anybody else having these issues?

Yes, same problem in Italy. The firmware 1.2.0.16 does not allow Internet connection through devices connected to the router with the Ethernet cable, only Wifi works. Solved through a downgrade to the firmware 1.0.2.136

It's a known issue, I would go to the support page and download the .16 then manually over a wired connection install the firmware then you must reset the router and setup as new.

that should solve your lan issues.

I have done so in the meantime. I have even upgraded and did a factory reset as also recommended. Both have resulted in the same issue. The weird part is for me everything works but once you try to access anything Facebook owned it doesn’t want to load.

I noticed that the latest version of RAX120; 1.2.0.16 has serious issues with WiFi connectivity.  All the WiFi devices started complaining about Internet connectivity. It started all of a sudden (Jan 29, 2021). I tried resetting (pin-hole method) multiple times to no luck. Then I rolled back to v1.0.0.58 and then reset the router, and then upgrade to 1.0.2.136. After doing this, so far, my WiFi is stable with no issues since last 2 hours (the latest firmware issue comes up instantly upon upgrading).

Maybe the RAX-120 is telling you something about Facebook :).  I'm kidding.  

My RAX-120 is doing the same thing but reading the threads will help.  Thanks all.
