Many of the routers/ap/adapters on this thread suffer the same problem, they need to be power cycled, sometimes daily, as they drop wifi connections, or the wifi stop altogether.

This is the very reason I am considering replacing my TP link router. Is there a router that does not suffer this problem?

Netgear AC1900 nighthawk R7000 is an excellent choice

Unless its overheating the problem is typically with the stock firmware which is why Tomato/AsusWRT/DD-WRT are so popular, but even firmwares with good community feedback releases cannot be tested for months.

I configured my RT-N66R AsusWRT/Merlin router to reboot itself daily [github.com] and its been rock solid for many months.

I'll second that. I have the Asus AP. Finally got so tired of resetting it, I gave up and went Netgear. Since then, I used it in all three function, then it wouldn't talk to my Meraki AP. So now it's dead to me. Sad really, wonderful idea...

cat 6 will potentially make a difference for the sheer fact it reduces noise and cross talking of cables improving signal. I noticed a difference above my cat5.. worth it, imo
here's a video on how to do it easily

after owning around 30 routers/APs, this is the one I want to try most. bast on the antennae placement, I think it shouldn't be mounted on its side (so it should be mounted on a horizontal surface).

access point seems optimized for range, not speed, even within N APs

I don't use it as a router but I've been very happy with the DIR-868L as an 802.11ac access point. No reboot required. (I use pfSense as router/gateway.)

I've bought 3 or 4 DIR-868L's refurbished from NewEgg with similar deals.

I have this same router r7000 and have bought and returned 3 others 2 newer netgears r7500 r8000 and now a rt68u Asus. I should have listened to the saying if it ain't broke don't fix it lol. The r7000 nighthawk runs like a dream. I usually power cycle it once a month or so out of habit. Maybe one time in a year and a half I actually had to do it not by choice

I think the last time it rebooted was due to a power outage. I am just using mine for an access point though.

Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r28000M kongac (10/24/15)
Time: 21:19:54 up 155 days
