I have a RT-AC3200 running merlin 384.13_8 and for the last 6 months or so i have been experiencing random intermittent internet dropouts. It can happen anywhere from a month to 2 days. Restarting fixes the issue, But i run servers so the dropouts are a problem. the sys log just shows normal dhcp and wireless channel swapping messages. Any help would be appreciated.

I would update to the latest version available and if the issues are still there, perform a full reset to factory defaults.

I had simular issues with my RT-AC3200. Could you please look at the temperatures? Mine was running very hot and this caused resets and stability issues.
I have now switched router to a RT-AX88U.

After flashing the newest update and factory resetting my router, just 1 week later i get a dropout. The log shows nothing except the boot sequence.

Do you simply get no internet, or is the whole router unreachable?

I have had internet disconnect issues (with router ui still reachable) ever since the code base changed, admittedly less frequent with the latest fw. A reboot or simply disabling/enabling WAN would resolve the issue.

What's worse is that I have frequent lockups with latest fw where webui and ssh are unreachable. This happens almost every week.

My device would operate around 70c, a while back I actually installed a fan under it to ensure it never get overheated and now current temperatures are stable: 43 °C - 44 °C - 53 °C
