Model: TD-W8961N
Hardware Version: V3
Firmware Version: 3.0.0 Build

Hello 

i just bought 2 weeks ago this router TP-link TD-W8961N   300Mbps Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router..

i configured it as PPPoA/PPPoE 

so the problem i have with this router everyday or every 2 days in a time the router like reboot by it self and then when i check it's configurations i found that 

it has switched back to Bridge mode instead of PPPoA/PPPoE by it self

i tried upgrading the firmware i did but it stayed in the same firmware which is 3.0 guess i already had the latest upgrade ? maybe it got upgraded i just upgraded it now

so i don't know if the problem still remains but i guess likeley it still will be here ..

so does anyone know where is exactly the problem or do you guys have any soulition ? thanks in advance !

Hi,

 

Below is the download link of the firmware: 

https://www.tp-link.com/support/download/td-w8961n/#Firmware

 

Try to hard reset it by holding the reset button for 10s with it powered on and reconfigure it  to give it a go. 

 

Please ensure that you use the original power adapter. 

 

If still the same, I'm afraid that there is not much we can do, it is more like the hardware got aged and won't work properly.

 

You can buy a new one with better performance.

Nice day.

yes that's the firmware i've downloaded and upgraded it with it, and i did factory reset after that and reconfigured it..

I'm now testing to see if the problem remains i hope it went away 

 

Thank you !!

May not be the issue but something to check. Make sure you click "save" after making changes. Sometimes you need to scroll down the page to see the save button. I like to power cycle the router after I have made changes to ensure all is okay.

yes i do click "save'", weiredly the problem of switching to briodged mode by it self whenever it reboot got solved by it selve, now it doesn't go back to bridged even after reboot

but the main problem remains which is the internet get disconected and it's like the router reboot by it self  mmany times everyday , and it's because of the router because i didn't have this problem when i tried a friend's router. .
