RBR50 rebooting and dropping wi-fi



My Orbi RBR50 plus satellite has recently taken to rebooting themselves (several times a day), and devices are unable to stay connected by wi-fi for more than about 15 minutes before the connection is dropped.  The main Orbi router is connected to a USP, so power stability is not an issue, but it still reboots itself periodically.  The situation is getting worse, and is not because I have upgraded the firmware on anything else has changed.  


Has anyone else had this problem, and if so found a solution?


Here's hoping, because this stuff is not cheap and my faith in Netgear is going............. Rapidly.

If they were interested I might!  They don't care as I've had them longer than 3 months, so no more technical support.  Considering the price of these things, that is totally rubbish.  Based on what I have experienced, i would not advise anyone to touch them.  They do not produce what is promised and have been a total waste of money.  Fast Wi-Fi?  Try no Wi-Fi.
