TPLINK Archer VR1600v - Wireless and Ethernet dropping randomly

Level 3


I have a TPG supplied 


TPLINK Archer VR1600v


I noticed i get dropout from wireless and ethernet , today i couldnt access the router from my desktop computer through ethernet cable. ( i used the wireless to access the router and it works. upon checking i can see there is non ethernet device connected, but on the router lights indicators it is lighted up for Lan 1 , Lan 2 and Lan 3. I turn off power to all devices for 10mins and turn it on again still no go, then i proceed to unplug all ethernet cables and reconnect, after awhile it got connected again. Also the wireless disconnect once a while randomly, even if i am in the same room as the router.


Do you think you can supply me with a new replacement modem, urgently? because i cant be without connection as we work from home.


Thank You



Hi @flossed


There are many factors that can affect your connection. If you're experiencing drop outs on both Wi-Fi and LAN, then it's best to check first if there's any line fault that is service affecting.
