AC1750 extender drops connection after a day cannot power down the device
Recently purchased a range extender AC1750 and updated the firmware during setup and completed the setup. The extender is located in a place with good signal reception - all the lights are blue. The system works fine for a day or so and then suddenly drops connection with the router. My router is an asus one. When the range extender drops the connection it appears to have crashed and it doesn't respond to the power button and it has to be physically removed from the power slot and reset.
While searching the net, it appears to be a known issue and the solutions range from disabling 5GHz operation etc. I tried limiting the connection to the 2.4GHz only and the problem appeared.
Now I have located the extender next to the router, which doesn't serve any purpose for me, and let me see.
Thanks in advance for all the help.
