Hi, I've been experiencing a few awful days since I bought an ASUS AC86u as my router connected directly to Sagemcom F@ST3864V2 modem which was given by optus. The thing is I would almost encounter four to five internet disconnections a day with no sign. That could happen at any time. When it happens, the modem power itself off and restart, which would need 5 minutes to restore the internet. I tried some methods such as close upnp, firewall, wan probes etc. and I found the modem is not at the temperature requiring restart. It's almost a month and I still couldn't figure out what happened. And things were fine if I use another much cheaper router. I don't know if I could use the ASUS router as a modem or what settings I missed that possibly caused the disaster. Thanks a lot if anyone could help!
Hi, I think I've talked about that in my post that after removeing the ASUS router the Optus modem would be fine but I couldn't accept that I have to dispose the router I paid much more than the other router which wouldn't result in dropouts of Optus modem... So you think it's the problem of my router or something just doesn't match between the router and the modem?
Its hard to say what's going on without knowing what is plugged into what.
It sounds like the Asus might be faulty (although I presume its the Optus modem that is dropping the internet.)
Do you have a friend you could try wire either device into at their place and try replicate the issues?
