Hi guys. I too have the dropout issue. It was really starting to kill me.
My solution was to buy a new router. I needed better WiFi anyway.
Since installing new router I have no more dropouts. Its been 3 weeks now.
I put the B818 into Bridge mode and let the new router do all the work.
Internet speed has increased. My home WiFi network is 100x faster now.
My solution is to buy a new faster router.
Hope it helps you guys.
Have a good day.
I ended up going a similar path. Turned the B818 into an LTE modem only and turning off the wifi functionality. Bought an ASUS RT-AX82U WiFi 6 wireless router to handle the home network. Luckily my mobile supports WiFi 6 and I get 1.2Gb on it. The modem has been stable as a rock. Speed varies though given it's LTE and traffic/time dependant. I also got a WiFi 6 wireless module for my laptop and that also screams. All in all a good experience now.
I went with the TP-Link Archer AX20 AX1800 Dual-Band Wi-Fi 6 Router. $169 @ Centre Com
I now have WiFi in places of the house that didn't before.
As all ISP supplied modems sux at WiFi broadcasting signal.
Thanks Rusty67 and digitizernz1,
Sorry, I forgot that router and modem were different for a minute (slap on face). Yes, I turned off the B818 wifi and connected a MESH system to mine (it was only $99 and reaches over to the sheds (I'm on land). Works great that way.
I have an old Optus B818 lying around that hasnt been used in a year or so that I want to bring back into service. It's currently running 10.2.2 and was wondering if the the issue described in this thread is still there? Or has it been fixed?
I generally run it in bridge mode with my own router so it's not too much of an issue but 10.2.2 was stable for me previously.
Thanks in advance.
