Hi, I’m having an issue with my VX220-G2v router with the Wi-Fi randomly failing and I usually end up powering off the router and powering it back on again. And having a look through, the forums looks like I might not be the only person: https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Modems-and-Devices/VX220-G2v-Wi-Fi-5ghz/m-p/123818 https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Modems-and-Devices/VX220-G2v-Wifi-Issue/td-p/126748 Issue appears to be with the 5Ghz only (most of my devices are 5Ghz). The devices affected appear to be random. Sometimes it’s a laptop, other times it’s a Chromecast sometimes it’s a phone. It only seems to affect devices that disconnect and have to reconnect. Devices that remain permanently connected to the Wi-Fi are fine. If I disabled the Wi-Fi on a working device while this issue was occuring, the device that was working also becomes unable to connect to the network properly. When the issue happens, the device will be connected to the router / Wi-Fi network, it receives an IP address, DNS, etc, but is unable to contact anything on the local network or the Internet. I tested this by also giving a static IP address and the same behaviour of not being able to connect to anything. I can't Ping anything either. I’ve tried turning off Band steering and having just 5ghz enabled, this actually helped slightly in that the issue appears less frequently, but probably still happens twice a week. This also increased the Wi-Fi range with this router as I only seem to be able to get about 10 or 15 meters before I start seeing drop outs. Steps I’ve tried: Setting encryption from WPA3 to 2 Setting Static IPs on devices Resetting the router Turning off band steering Tried manually setting the Wi-Fi channel rather than using auto Having just 5Ghz enabled on the router and disabling 2Ghz Firmware on the device: Firmware Version:2.0.0 0.9 v603c.0 Build 220517 Rel.49186n Hardware Version:VX220-G2v v2.0 00000000 This device is still relatively new, we moved in Jan and this was the replacement device for our VR1600v which we didn't have these issues with. Any ideas?

Hi, I have the TP Link vr1600 and the unit seems to be getting progressively browner and darker. This unit is in a well ventilated area, out of the sun on top of a cupboard with nothing around it. I've seen others on the forum complaining about similar issues. https://community.tpg.com.au/t5/Modems-and-Devices/TP-Link-Archer-vr1600v-overheating-and-plastic-turning-brown/m-p/108527 The top of the unit around the vent and the vent itself is very bad and the back of the unit is also turning brown. Is there any risk of fire?
