Archer C1200 v2.0, firmware 2.0.0 Build 20170206 rel.46023 (EU) and I have exactly the same problem several times a day. I cannot reconnect my devices (2 android phones, 2 laptops - 5GHz and printer - 2.4GHz). The only device that seems to be less affected by this problem is Android TV Box - 5GHz. Sometimes I can't get to the administration panel with a wire connection. I do not use torrents or anything like that. I bought this router a few days ago, it has a last chance, then I throw it at the shop door

I have V1 and the same issues. When I leave wifi range and enter it again, devices won't connect and say that there's a problem with verification. Only rebooting the router helps.

I have the same issue: 1-2 times per day, the router stops responding to ping, unable to connect to the management interface, both 2.4G and 5G access points are visible, but clients can't connect. A router reboot fixes it temporarily.

RMA in-progress...

I read on a reddit post that a user was able to change the security time from WPA2 to WPA which resolved the issue.

I tried this yesterday and so far so good... but I'm not keeping my hopes up (I also don't like having to reduce my security for the WiFi to work). I will update with results.

I read that changing security from WPA2 to WPA fixes the issue (for at least one person on reddit). I will update with results....

Is there any result of your testing ?

I'll do the same and see if it fixes it.

I have the C1200 which they warranty replaced recently for this issues. I got the V3 hw version back and updated the firmware and it still is having the same issue. Quite disappointing...

This is getting ridiculous, why not switch to WEP while we're at it ? How can such a crappy device be sold in the first place ? And it looks like tplink doesn't care at all.
If you have the opportunity to get a refund, as I did, do it and get a better router.
