I just wanted the latest firmware to rule that out before changing service providers.

 

Thanks

I have the EXACT same issue and it's driving me mad. Wired and wireless devices just 'randomly' stop being able to access the internet. 

 

Rebotting the router fixes it 'for a little bit'. 

 

Were you able to get a fix from TPG? 

 

I'm considering changing ISP just to get a better router because it's becoming a disaster with this router. 

 

My firmware is: 0.1.0 0.9.1 v5006.0 Build 180828 Rel.56416n

Hi @damienb0

 

Welcome to the Community! 

 

There are different types of dropouts that you may experience:

 

1. Network dropouts, this dropout is caused by a line fault on TPG or NBN's network. Affecting all device(s) LAN/Wireless connected to the modem/router this may require a real-time test and investigation by our Technicians and Engineers.

 

2. Wireless dropouts, this issue only affects the device(s) connected via Wi-Fi which can easily be fix by doing adjustment to the modem/router's settings.

 

3. Dropouts caused by ongoing outage in your area.

 

In the event that you experience dropouts via Wireless/Wi-Fi connection, we recommend having a read on the following articles:
