    RT-AC86U intermittently but constantly dropping Internet Connection

    Well, so much for the firmware idea. It just happened again, less than 2 hours after I reverted the firmware. And no more network traffic than usual. I don't see anything in the system logs that might indicate what happened - the only logs that show are the logs that happened after the reboot (I...

    RT-AC86U intermittently but constantly dropping Internet Connection

    Why not? The CPU can't re-encode the video at a speed such that the write to the drive can't keep up, even to a network drive, so it didn't seem to be an issue. This was a one-time thing that I set up quickly though - if it was something that I did with any sort of frequency, I'd probably set it...

    RT-AC86U intermittently but constantly dropping Internet Connection

    Apologies for the time lapse in a reply - the router had been working fine for the past 3 weeks or so, up until a couple of days ago when I had to reboot the router 8 or 9 times within a 20-minute span. One thing I noticed, though, is that this time there was a lot more network traffic than...

    RT-AC86U intermittently but constantly dropping Internet Connection

    Not yet, mainly because I'm not really sure that that does. It seems like it would be something that has to do with WAN, but not much with LAN, and since it's both that seem to go down for me, it didn't seem like it would solve the issue. Although I suppose it would be worth a try if only to...

    RT-AC86U intermittently but constantly dropping Internet Connection

    Hi all, I came across this thread because I'm having a similar problem. Based on reading through pretty much this whole thread, it seems that the problem described here is that the INTERNET connection stops working, but the NETWORK itself is still working. My problem first shows itself when I...
