Model: Archer MR600  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.2.0 0.9.1 v0001.0 Build 200511 Rel.44954n

Hey All,

 

I started to use my Archer MR600 LTE modem/router a couple of weeks ago and I updated the firmware to the latest one in the first minute of use. It is quite a good device, but still there are a few bugs in the firmware.

 

The most disappointing one is in the Traffic Monitor option. Even if I turn it's virtual switch on to enable it, the feature itself will not turn on. It does not start to monitor the traffic and if I go to another segment in settings and then navigate back to Traffic Monitor I find the switch turned off, as shown. It is like the position of the switch does not get saved. NAT Boost is disabled, so it is not the reason. In that case the switch would be also inactive (gray).

However, sometimes the feature gets enabled automatically, but it is very random. And if I change the observed period from "Daily" to anything else, monitoring crashes again. But even it starts to work by accident, the visualized values on the diagram are wrong.

 

Has anyone faced this bug before? Can you suggest a solution for that?

 

Thanks a lot!

 

Simon

The problem was solved by

Reboot

Advanced > LAN Settings > DHCP Server > IP Address Pool in 192.168.1.11-192.168.1.254 to 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.199

I still cannot understand what is going on when this happens. Sometimes everything is ok for days, then it gets screwed every day. The most interesting thing is that the problem just gets solved by itself in the night, at around 1 to 3 a.m. It is like an inverse Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Anyway, I have no problem since a few days now but no update happened, so I still cannot believe that this pain flew away...

 

I guess you don't use cable connections but if you would they wouldn't show up either on the start page.

Well, let's hope the best. I've been using using this range of IPs since the beginnings and I still experience this crash sometimes.

Yes, reboot was the first thing I tried. Sometimes it helped, sometimes not. Since a few weeks I don't experience the bug but I did for 3 months, since I bought the router.

Now I don't check it so often and when I do, it seems ok. But because no firmware update were installed and the reboot did not help every time, I still cannot believe that it "healed" itself permanently. As the problem comes quite randomly, it can stop randomly, too. I'm using my router/modem in cellular modem mode. It has also happened once that the data usage counter had not been reseted on the day, which I set as the end of my billing cycle. This was the main reason I logged in every day and checked my data usage, not to get an overusage fee.

 

 

UPDATE:

Yesterday I checked it and it was crashed again. I did not make a reboot because in this case I should have done it for a few other devices at home, as well. The problem presists today but I don't care. It may fix itself sometime.
