Default Re: R7000 Unreliable

If you can connect after doing a reset you might want to reserve all your IPs in the router. I used to get disconnects due to IP conflicts before I reserved my IPs in the router. I have one static IP outside the DHCP range and it is reserved too. I truncated the DHCP IP range to .2 ~ .199 and set the static IP at .200

My cell phone used to be really bad at hopping IPs every time I left and re-entered the house. It now always gets the same IP. The router is bad about reusing IPs that are already in use without IP reservations. Reserving IP addresses in the router solved my problem.

fang,

I never had any of those problems since I bought my router. Yes the sitiation was far from perfect on day one, but since 2 or 3 betas ago, Im very happy with my purchase.

Note: You really need to do a factory reset before and after flashing a new beta firmware even if that sounds strange to you.

I've been using a static IP on my phone for some time now. Doing that also uses less battery for WiFi since you don't have all the DHCP activity going on. Seems to work well.

I performed a reset and went through the configuration again. I've backed up the config and the router is working for now. I don't have much confidence that it will keep working. I've be through this multiple times now.

Thanks for everyone for your suggestions.

@Fang...

I know you said that you're running the "latest" firmware in your original post, but is that the latest on Netgears Download Page or is it the latest Beta Firmware?

So, what is the actual version number that you are running?

Did you try updating to the latest Beta Firmware ? V1.0.3.24_1.1.20 has been working really well for me !

Here's a link to a post in this forum, which has a direct download link from Netgear:
