I wish I could return this pile of junk
The platform was super stable and I never had to reset either the Router or Satellite. I was living in the future... or so I believed.
Fast forward a few months, a few firmware updates, and I am extremely frustrated, to say the least.
Constant connection drops, slow speeds (going from 250 download, to 10), having to constantly run downstairs to unplug the router & plug it back in, because rebooting it via the app/gateway doesn’t fix it).
It’s now become a daily routine to have to reset this thing.
Does anyone know how to fix this **bleep**? This is embarrassing for a $350 Router. Absolutely embarrassing for Netgear. I will never buy one of their products again if this isn’t fixed. I just updated to 2.1 a few days ago and nothing has been fixed. It’s been over 5 months now.
I wish I could go back to the original firmware.
Re: I wish I could return this pile of junk
I would try to move the satellite and/or router to different positions so they have fewer walls between or are closer together. Recent firmware (released a few months after your purchase) reduced the effective satellite to router range for a stable backhaul. If your backhaul signal is not strong enough, you will have intermittent issues like you describe.
