Hey everyone,

Long time lurker - Finally just registered.

Basically I'm having issues on the NF4V after several days. I'm unable to access the LAN from the WLAN. 
On top of this the LAN Loopback on port forwarding is very temperamental. For example, on the LAN I can access my webservers fine, but after awhile I get issues connecting to the websites. Confirmed this is only from LAN too. Also happening with my IRC bouncer + Mail server. Externally everything works fine.

I've tried the basic things such as Factory reset, other ports too to make sure it wasn't weird port blocking/throttling. 
I also flashed the latest generic NetComm NF4V firmware and i'm having the same issues. 

A simple reboot has fixed the issue, but it always comes back after 24hrs+

Does anyone have any recommendations or fixes for this? I've tried contacting them and they keep telling me to factory reset and then they will put a ticket through which I never see or hear about again. I'll have to call up next time this issue happens.

Should I push for a replacement? Or fork out for a decent router?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I'm on a 100/50 Unlimited fibre plan. Also getting half my download speed... 51mbps 24/7 is a pain.

LAN Loopback isn't working at all now. Even after a reboot. 

Deleting and re-adding the port-forwards make it work again.. This is really twisting my head. I can't think of a logical explanation other than a firmware issue.
