Be prepared to flash dd-wrt or advanced tomato to this router.

It is currently experiencing wifi 2.4 band drops

No permanent fix as of yet

I have this router (have had it almost 2 years now) (R7000 version)
Until recently it has been going strong but lately quite a few nighthawk owners have been having issues with wifi drops. What happens is that the 2.4 band devices lose all connectivity and are not able to access anything. There is currently no fix for this issue.
The router must have settings reapplied for the devices to be seen again.

If you look on the netgear forums, netgear themselves are unsure of the problem, it is affecting people that upgraded their firmware and people that have not.

Be prepared to flash advanced tomato or dd-wrt onto it if you do buy it. The flashing takes less than 10 minutes.
