So recently got this router but each day, I've been noticing that the Wifi keeps dropping for all devices and I keep having to restart the router. I've done some googling and found that this might have to do with the router's nvram but I'm still not quite sure.


Any other kiwis having this issue and had it fixed? This is for for the DSL-68U router, NOT RT-68U seeing there are two types.

is it just the wifi dropping or ethernet devices too?


when the connection drops, do you notice a certain light changing?

Wifi devices only. I have a PC hooked up to the router via Ethernet and it works okay. Haven't really noticed any changes with the lights but I will next time I get a drop.

Had a very similar issue recently with my ASUS DSL-AC52U. Maybe twice a day the 5G would completely disappear, the 2.4G would still be working but was much much slower than usual. A restart was required to fix it. 


I did see their was a recent firmware update that was suppose to fix connectivity issues but it didn't help for me, I returned it this weekend and got a replacement.
