AC87u is unreliable
after long periods of uptime it starts going wonky. this thread has lots of complaints. you have to do heaps of maintenance like full power off for a few minutes to restart every few weeks.
they tried to squeeze too much into 1 router and they didn't do it well i think.
soft restarts don't seem to work.Just bought one from caraohell. 50 nia. I will run using laptop cooler. Will using Merlin Firmware and schedule daily restart.
Need to dump all my non AC Routers now.
OK i'm now on merlin. last ditch effort before i dump this router in favour of my 2x free RT AC1200G+ in mesh mode.
it went wonky again this morning. turn off for 2 minutes before starting again, still wasn't enough. turned it off again before i left for cny visiting, only turned it back on when i came back.
Any of you on merlin experiencing the same issues as i was on stock?
Unless u are willing to cut the case of the router and install a 80mm fan underneath it. BTW mine is overheating frequently as well.Ok it's heat related. It's wall mounted, how come it's overheating so easily
