Very annoying Archer C7 issue keeps popping back up
Hey everyone. I'm at my wits end with this router. I got it from my local ISP when they activated my service.
From day 1 I had an issue where I would randomly lose connection throughout the day for about 1 minute, then it would pick back up about two or three minutes later. This happened about 5 or 6 times per day. Since I work from home, it's incredibly annoying to get kicked off of whatever I'm doing for a few minutes every hour.
ISP sent out a tech, he stayed for over an hour and didn't fix the issue. I took matters into my own hands. Used the automatic firmware upgrade feature which did not work. Then had to manually get the EU drivers and install myself (why is TP Link not able to figure this out??). Second time it worked, but did not fix my original issue.
Finally, I fixed the issue by disabling IPV6. No more random disconnects for about two months.
Fast forward to yesterday. We had a power outage. Now the router is back to it's old ways. Losing connection intermittently multiple times per day.
My first thought was that the power outage caused a factory reset but nope, I logged back in to the router settings and IPV6 is still disabled. Firmware still at the newest version.
I have attached the system logs as I have no clue how to decipher them and I'm not sure why the date is wrong. Maybe that can help.
Someone please help me with this, I'm at a total loss here. I don't know enough to diagnose this myself and I need to get my work done. I can't believe I'm having router problems like this after not having them with multiple other cheap routers in the past. Terrible.
