I have this same one. Is it normal for routers like this to be out of signal and needing a soft reset once in a while?

No. Is yours refurb or new? I had a tplink that started requiring a reset but it also had a 3 year warranty so I sent it back and got another when it started malfunctioning

I've yet to have a router by any brand last more than 3 years. They all start acting up around the 3 year mark.

I think WiFi 6 will be here in some/ hopefully most new devices in three years so you'll probably want a new router at that point anyways

I've been using the provided modem\router from CenturyLink since 2013 and it's still chugging along, no problems. Although generally I agree with your assessment

Agree. Any high performance router I've ever heard of needs to be replaced by 3 years or earlier. I'd argue that it may go hand in hand with usage (if you have a high performance router you're probably passing through a lot of data). With the popularity of streaming and cord-cutters (I don't think there could be anything worse for a router than continuously streaming HD content for hours on end) I think a lot of people are going to start seeing their routers die.

I have a Velop system (3 year warranty) so I'll be interested in seeing if having multiple radios splitting the load (I have 4 nodes) does anything to prolong the life. I kind of doubt it.

I would say mine (AC1200) needs a reset every couple months. But I have never had a router (or modem) that does not need to be reset every once a in a while.

This place has it for $17 with free shipping. Doesn't say it's a refurb. I'm leery to buy from a no name store, anyone ever buy from here or have a recommendation?

FYI if you're looking for a super affordable way to do some advanced networking, you can install OpenWrt on this guy. (its a snapshot build so keep that in mind). I'm using it in my house to set up vlans for more wifi networks and I love it
