TPG supplied TP Link VR1600v freezes every 1 or 2 days!

My 2 weeks old TP Link VR1600v modem is so instable, it freezes every one or two days. When it is stop working, wifi can't be connected no matter 2.4G or 5G and LAN connection is very slow. The modem setup page(192.168.1.1) won't work and an error message will come up. Power it down and reboot will fix the issue. But for a brand new modem, it shouldn't be like that! Just like last night, i rebooted it 2 times.

Is my modem faulty?

Thanks.

Hi,

Even with the new replacement modem, same thing just happened. I have to reboot it otherwise no internet connection but I can still connect to the wifi this time. Your line is fine. 100% sure it is the quality of the modem. I can see that I’m not the only one having the same issue.

Joined TPG FTTB on Thursday, same thing is happening to me. Had another modem sent and the same issue occurs. Can trigger it to fault if I do a speedtest.net a few times. 

 

Did you get this resolved? Very frustrating having an unstable connection..
