Same here. This router is a beast now that it works reliably. All good on my end for one week,

Yep. I'm really glad I was patient and didn't dump the thing and drop a bunch of $ on something else. I had a feeling it would get fixed sooner or later.

Third party firmware also seems like a possibility, which is an added benefit in my opinion. The random reboots are certainly frustrating. I'm very optimistic about this solution!

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

I'm gonna keep running the beta until official is released since it's solid. Saving the beta too in case official is screwed again so I can always go back to reliability lol.

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

How does one get the beta firmware?

 

Does it seem to fix the reboots?  Can WMM be enabled again?

 

Thanks

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

Just followed the directions and have an uptime of over 48hrs so far, where previously would reboot at least once a day.  No WMM changes needed.

I too would like to try out the beta firmware. Mine is currently rebooting every 5 minutes while downloading XBox updates and a streaming movie, along with other basic wifi loads. Thank you

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

Updated to the beta firmware.  A little bit of a PITA with the static IPs I need, but was able to sort it out after a couple of reboots of both the router and the devices.  Other than that, so far so good.

 

One thing I did notice was CPU Load and Memory Usage don't seem to work any longer.  They show the date in the readout instead of the proper reading.  Guess that's why it's still a beta, ehh?

 

Fingers crossed...

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

I just bought this router and it drops connection enough times to make me notice and become frustrating.

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

The latest beta firware finally fixes the issue. You can get it from @DarrenM here or wait for the official to be released.

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

Thanks buddy, I’m going to wait for the official release though. I bough this router because my older nighthawk was having issues and after researching it seemed this one was the best if the best. So far very disappointing with oerfmance and issues.

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

Just request the beta from @DarrenM. It's been solid 2 weeks for me now and is finally the beast it was meant to be. Been a long time coming. Glad I was patient.

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

The beta is working for me too. There is a glitch where the web interface shows the boot time for the CPU load and memory usage instead of percentages. I also noticed that there are no longer any DoS messages in the log (not sure if this was fixed or they broke something else). Otherwise the router is running solid, 4+ days without a reboot.

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

It almost seemed like most of those DOS attacks where false positives because they were so constant....and it wouldn't surprise me if that was the core cause of the reboot issue. Routers tend to reboot after a certain # of dos attacks for security.

I just noticed that CPU Load and Data Usage are being reported as Time and Date as well. Uptime is over 6 days so far..

Re: RAX120 V2 Constant Random Reboots

NG is aware. I presume that should go back to correct display on next full FW release.

When will the fix be officially released? Mine is just getting worse and worse. I’m going back to my old trusty Apple time capsule until this gets fixed.

You must send a private message to @DarrenM and he will provide you with the beta. I have 18 days solid without a reboot now on the beta.
