I installed the above router to repleace a Netgear WRN2000 router that I use for several years and hardly had any issues with until recently. But since installing the TP-Link, I have had frequent disconnects from my network and have had to reboot the modem and router almost daily. I guess my question is, is there some sort of diagnostics I can do on the router to verify that it is the router and not an issue with my modem, a Motorola Surfboard SB6120? I'm ready to ship this TP-Link back to Amazon (it's only been about a month) but just want to make sure I am correcting the problem here.
When your connection disconnects are you still able to connect via wired through the router?
You can always connect straight to the modem, and see if your connection is more stable?
Are you on the same wireless channel?
Did you get security setup properly when you setup the new router?
Thanks for all the great suggestions. Updating the firmware sounds like the first thing to try. I already tried replacing the ethernet cable between the modem and router, so pretty sure that isn't the issue.
