I currently have a VR600 v2 model connected to a fibre connection.
Previously I have a VR600 v1 device which worked great for about 2 years but then started suffering crashes.
The device would suddenly stop responding to LAN, Wifi & also drop the WAN connection all at the same time, with no way to connect to the device. A power cycle of the device was the only way to recover it. At which point it would be ok for a few hours or maybe a few days before it locked up again. I thought it was just on the way out so recently replaced with a used Vr600 v2 model. But after a few weeks I'm getting the same symptoms on this v2 device. the VR600 just every so often stops responding and requires a power cycle. Very frustrating.
Do you have any ideas what may cause such issues? I have tried factory resets/changing power sockets/ stopping services/disconnecting certain devices etc but it just seems to lockup/crash on it's own with no identifiable trigger. I remember hearing issues over a year or so ago with some tp link routers and mass broadcasts coming from google home & chromecast devices but I understand latest firmware resolved this.
Unfortunately, this is making the device unusable as it's been too unreliable. Would like to get a solution as they are great devices otherwise. I was very happy with the original one I had.
Just tried using the tp-link support contact form but it failed to submit my query, so posting here instead.
