Model: Archer C80  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.10.0 Build 210716 Rel.51301n(5255)

I have WAN with a 300 Mbit/sec connection.

When I am downloading torrents my routers start periodically every 2 minutes to reboot or hang for 10-15 seconds.

 

So it works fine at 30MB/sec downloading speed, then boom, reboots, or hangs, at this moment I can't access the router's web interface is just not responding, the internet is not working. After 10-15 seconds everything is fine again.

 

 

Internet Connection Type: Dynamic IP

Enable NAT Boost - tried on/off without noticeable difference

UPnP:- tried on/off without noticeable difference

SPI Firewall: - tried on/off without noticeable difference

 

What can it be? 

Has anyone encountered a similar bug?

@clop1000 It seems that the problem was because of the faulty driver for Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Adapter (PHY: Realtek RTL8111)  

Instaling a different version of the driver seemed to help.

Hello, only when downloading torrents will the router reboot or hang? How about normal browsing? 

 

How large of the file were you downloading? What if you try a smaller file?

@clop1000 Only when downloading torrents. I tried downloading several big files through HTTP/FTP (several different Linux distros) at once and everything seems to be working fine, but when downloading torrents files this bug happens.

 

In Utorrent client, I tried to limit the concurrent connections option, but I didn't help, when the download speed reaches 30mb/s (or close to it) it just hangs for 10 seconds. 
I have never have encountered this thing before.

That's weird. We would like to escalate the case to the support engineers, they will try to investigate.

That's great. It's good to know installing a new driver helps with the downloading issue.yes
