I bought an Archer VR600v a couple of weeks ago. I have to admit that the first impression was very good: easy to configure and set up. But very soon the problems started.
I have a Raspberry Pi inside my local network with an static IP connected per cable acting as DNS server + smart-home server. All the devices I have at home use the Raspberry Pi as DNS. I have been using this configuration for years with my old router (Easybox). But with this new TPLink Archer VR600V the connection between hosts is completely unstable and sometimes the devices cannot comunicate between each other. Of course, all the devices have a private IP in the same network (192.168.1.X/255.255.255.0).
If this happened always I would consider I have done something wrong in the configuration. But it happens only from time to time, for a few minutes. And then everything starts working fine again. Sometimes I have to restart the router to solve the problem. It has happened too when trying to configure a Google Chromecast. My Android was unable to find it until the router was restarted.
Is it a hardware problem? As I have read a lot of bad comments... is this the expected quality from a TP product?
