    I would agree with @Killhippie it's not meant to be unplugged so frequently. When you unplug the router that's not performing a proper reboot so it makes sense you would need to do software reboot after connecting back in. The same is seen on a laptop for example, if you let the power drain then it will sometimes say the computer did not shutdown correctly and then you need to restart it/wait for it to boot up properly.

    Why are you unplugging the router to 'organise' things so much? Routers are kinda designed to be plugged in and left on, and since there is no power switch on the R2 I hope you are not pulling the connector out the back and back in with the power adaptor still on as that can fry a router as it can arc when you push the connector back in. A router should be mounted high up for better Wi-Fi, not hidden behind furniture and electronic equipment that can cause issues by blocking Wi-Fi and inducing RFI and sometimes EMI also its better for the router to have as much ventilation as possible. Mine is on a shelf way up out the way so it does what it needs to do and very rarely gets unplugged. Unplugging it and plugging it in will eventually shorten any electronic devices life as booting up from a zero power state is one of  the most stressful times for any device, also with NVRAM there is the potential to cause corruption if its done to often.

    Can never be too sure haha. I think they have transitioned to servers now so when you can't join/chat do you see one icon being blocked at all? - Make sure to zoom out of the map fully to be sure.

    I'd contact the ISP, having it drop like that could well be causing you issues.

    I'll move it to a better place. There is no cable connected because I'm not using the Router as I said in the header it is overheating and resetting. 
    This is the first time I have problems with a router. 
    The surface of my desk is not wood.
    The ambient temperature in that area is not hot.
    The PC next to the router is not a gaming PC so no heat
    I'll place the router in a better place and let you know.

    I would have to agree with the guys, not only for EMI but I assume the desk is wood so that will likely soak up the heat and put it right back towards the router, also the heat kicking out from the PC.

    Killhippie reacted to General Snivy in Windows 10 Reinstallation Related Qestion   
    Thanks for sharing this information. I'm going to be doing some research on the subject matter and do everything I can to prepare myself for when I do a clan install of Windows 10. There's a lot I need to take care of first before I get started on this such as making sure I have all the drivers I need to reinstall, make a list of all the programs I want to reinstall onto my system along with the games, make notes of all product keys of the programs I care for the most such as Vegas Pro 15 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018, create a backup containing settings and customizations for certain programs such as OBS Studio and Elgato Stream Deck mini, etc.
    Once everything is taken care of, I plan on doing this at around Christmas time as that is when I'm taking time off from content creation to spend time with family.

    Killhippie reacted to Newfie in ANNOUNCEMENT: DUMAOS 3.0 IS HERE   
    I’m fairly confident that the Asus as well as NG AX routers with Broadcom chipsets have had updates via Broadcom that have added and improved the new standard. Throughput, latency, WiFi security and processing is mighty quick now on the top tier stuff however most may not be aware of how much of an improvement this is and days of wired only are coming to an end. 
    BSS colouring, TwT, OFDMA and the rest of the specs are pretty amazing. 
    I bet the XR1000 after stability updates will be a good router to pick up for gamers.

    If you don't need the R2 WiFi then I'd suggest disabling it for now so that you don't experience any drops. Shouldn't cause any issues like that. If it's working then leave it the way it is setup at the moment.

    What’s 3k bandwidth how did you reset your router if it doesn’t reset if the rest button does not work. You use a paper clip into that small hole hold for 30 seconds let go wait for the router to boot fully then enter your settings. Also contact @Netduma Fraser He has a beta firmware to help this router. He should see this post now I’ve tagged him. After updating reset but once only it does not need multiple resets.

    EMI that’s what I was thinking of this morning but for the life of me before my first coffee of the day my brain was switched off.
    I believe Netgear normally mention placement of routers which included such things as ceiling fans.

    You need better airflow too that's really not a place to put a router and the R2 may run warm and needs better ventilation. In all honesty I would place it in a clear space so no EMI is causing issues and where it gets much better airflow. Where it is now is not good for any of that.

    I'll address all your points:
    We did not create the forum software, it was created by Invision Community, those are the options they give you for font size. If I was going to censor you then I would have deleted parts of or all of your post, instead I changed the font size back to the default. You can read our Official Forum Code of Conduct that has been unchanged for over 5 years that you agree to by posting here if you think I'm out of line: https://forum.netduma.com/topic/2764-official-forum-code-of-conduct/ Development is an ongoing process with delays and changes all the time, that doesn't stop us getting everyone ready for it. "So you telling us that the XR700 is over $500 router with better spec can't handle it.  But the R2 $150 can and has high priorities." No I didn't say that, please re-read the post. If me changing your font size, that distracts from the whole topic and comes across as aggressive really bothers you that much then please let me know and I will delete your account as requested.
    I am on the forum almost every day all day across all our platforms, trust me I know what people are frustrated about, your shouting/large font doesn't make a difference to that fact.

    The router is placed poorly, there is lots of electrical equipment round it which will cause RFI. The router is best placed away from other electrical sources and in an area where the WiFi is not impeded, best not to be at the back of a tv or monitor.

    Tried everything. I have about 15-20 WiFi drops for no reason. Have put it in front of asus router lan to lan, In front lan to wan. After lan to lan, after lan to wan
    Also tried alone with same issue. Has been updated to latest firmware and repaired to factory settings 3 different times. 
    Have tried everything I can think of. After unplugging and replugging wifi comes back on. It is every device that I loose wifi.

    MU-Mimo has no effect on my ping in a RAX120 it shouldn't on yours also you do need two MU compatible devices to gain the best from it, but leaving the flag on should not cause issues, unless you have enabled wideband 40Mhz on 2.4 and 160 on 5Ghz.
