Archer 1600v keeps dropping internet connection

Level 2



I am having the same issue as many others on this forum that my Archer 1600v drops internet connection for anywhere between 30 seconds to 5-10 minutes. It happens at about 20-40 minute intervals and doesn't seem to be due to anything specific. I have tried to change around the wifi channels on both the 5g and 2.4g and it doesn't change anything. I have auto reboot set to 3 days.


The connection comes back if I restart the router. When it goes out, the NBN box is fine with all lights on and my PC, laptop and phone all connect to the network, I just can't get any internet connection. When checking the Archer, all lights are still on ecept the internet and Phone 1 lights.


You might not be able to find my router using my details since it's set up in my flatmates name, but I'm happy to provide our details privately.
