Hi. In regards to teh modem ignoring the setting to auto-reboot every 3 days. I have been in touch with TPLInk technical support. This was a very fruitless and frustrating exercise which achieved nothing other than to verify the settings were all correct and it didn't work. Rather than fix the issue, this is their final response:
"For you case, it's suggested to contact TPG to help you upgrade the firmware version.
Archer VR1600v is a special product produced for TPG, so only TPG can help you to upgrade the firmware. If they tell you that they cannot help you that, please just ask their supervisor/manager."
So how do I go about getting the firmware fixed in the Archer modem so the auto-reboot function works?
Hello. I have spoken with TP link and they have confirmed they know about this bug of the modem ignoring the auto-reboot function and that there is indeed newer firmware that fixes this.
I feedback the problem to my manager, I've learned that this problem is a known problem. And we have fixed the problem in the latest firmware version.
But Archer VR1600v is a special product produced for TPG, so only TPG can help you to upgrade the firmware. I suggest you can connect the TGP to help you. And as far as I know, the latest firmware version number starts with 18xxxx. If they tell you that they cannot help you that, please just ask their supervisor/manager.
Can you please chase this up so I can get the firmware which fixes this problem.

I've managed to run remote tests on our end and there appears no evident line fault that can affect the service. We will need to check first for any underlying issues before we proceed with the upgrade if it is deemed necessary.
