Model: ER605 (TL-R605)  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2

WAN and WAN/LAN1 each connected to a Netgear M5. WAN's connection to Telstra, WAN/LAN1's connection to Optus.

 

From time to time (at least once a day if not multiple times a day), in particular WAN, connection dropped off like below.

 

Is there something wrong with the router's firmware?

  @SWJRL 

check your phy connection. and it is likely to be a prob with your isp. phone your isp and ask if your line or their server is ok. 

 

to your question, not seems to be a firmware issue. make sure your isp's fine. then you consider something else. router just dials the internet it does not do anything else.
