Why do you have to keep rebooting your router to often?

All of the active elements in this network, ie Router, wireless extender are for me historically not good stuff, and add a ropey wireless bridge and it's just all nasty.

What sort of diagnosis have you done?

 

What is the distance between the R7000 and the Ex6200? Can you operate the Ex6200 in bridge mode?

 

Why does the R7000 keep rebooting?

 

Do the 4 devices talk to each other via the Ex6200 switch ports?

 

Have you tried a WiFi laptop to see how strong the signal is from the R7000? Maybe you can look in the Ex6200 to see how strong the WiFi is from the R7000.

 

Will any one device attached to the EX6200 work reliably to the internet.

 

Maybe you could assign static IP configs to the devices attached to the EX6200 switch to avoid any DHCP issues.

 

Why do you have a WAP device attached to the EX6200? How many more WiFi network devices are you operating through the WAP?

 

.... etc....

R7000 to ex6200 is approx. 10-15 meters, signal is approx-55db,

 

rebooting is just an example of when it is having its moment.

 

4 devices talk to each other only when ex6200 is connected to r7000

 

somehow the ex6200's wifi could not get through the bathroom. and that is the only one.

Get the R7000 fixed...

 

Is the R7000 really rebooting or just dropping the WiFi link? If so, the cause needsto be found and fixed.

How does the EX6200 work?

 

Is it a WiFi extender with a 4 port switch? or 

 

Is it a WiFi extender with 4 independent ethernet ports each with a WiFi link? ie: does not have a switch.

I'm actually surprised nobody has mentioned the most simple solution to this... Come on guys, we've been through this before.

 

@iamsammajor I don't think the problem lies with the R7000 however something I'd recommend for it is to load it with alternative firmware like Advanced Tomato (Here) as it adds a whole lot of functionality to it. Since it sounds like your ONT is in an incorrect location consider one of 3 things:

 

1) Keep your existing router - ditch the wireless extender (I mean this - it is the problem here) and purchase a powerline adapter like this one. Have one adapter plugged into the ONT and the other where you want your router (Powerline Adapter --> ONT --> Powerline Adapter --> WAN port of R7000).

 

2) Get Ethernet installed where you're wanting your router from your ONT - this is the best option but you'll need to get somebody around to do this.

 

3) Replace the R7000 with something like the Netgear Orbi (Here) - this is a rather expensive option but works well and will replace all elements on your network.

 

But either way, get rid of that extender - this is the bottleneck in your network. For you, I'd recommend trying option 1 or option 3 for ease of simplicity. I don't think anything is wrong with your R7000 but ensure it has either got the latest firmware (from the Netgear site) or just load it with Advanced Tomato. There is a guide Here of somebody configuring one for Vodafone Cable which may help.

Using Wireless P2P? Not really suitable for your average home user.

Ummm, my first post suggested a cable, I guess PLC is the next option, but I am still not a fan and I think the OP said he had tried that and it did not work, I suspect its a flat and the ONT is in the owners flat, so they could be on different phases.
