Issue - 2018-2-15 BIN - Router Goes on the Fritz

I was on a 12/2017 version with only 1 or 2 reset due to power outages in the past 5 months. Installed 2018-2-15 BIN and have to restart the router 3 times now. It just drops WiFi, and when you try to connect it says wrong ID / password until I reset it. LAN just disappears as well.

Any thoughts on what I should try to resolve it?

Do a factory reset and set up

Do a factory reset and set up from scratch.

Does this happen with OEM FW installed?

Try Voxels FW to see as well...

Same happens to me, maybe 2x

Same happens to me, maybe 2x a week.  A router reboot seems to fix it.  I'm considering scheduling the router to reboot on a daily basis to prevent this.

Build 2018-15 (R7800) is

Build 2018-15 (r7800) is "borked". My radios drop everyother day also. My R7000 works just fine on the laterst Kong Build. I have been working with DD-WRT builds going back many years and this build has radio problems.

What I am wondering is if anyone has gone back to the original build and is it stable? Untill a new build comes forth I am forced back to the stock netgear firmware on my r7800. I check-back every few weeks looking for a newer "Kong" build but no joy as of yet.

And as of now I am not yet ready to try Voxels FW just yet. I am so accustom to DD-WRT.

That build did the same for

That build did the same for me. I factory reset with switch on router, used factory password to gain access again then reflashed newer test 4.9 kernal. Happily all my original settings intact. Good luck
