Do you see any of these problems with your Netgear Nighthawk M1 / M2 / M5 Router?

Does your Router re-boot when the signal strength becomes low (RS-SINR < 0)?

When your Router re-boots is the Router's Global IPv6 address missing?

When your Router re-boots does your Router have DNS access?

When your Router re-boots is the Router's IPv4 address missing (0.0.0.0)?

Have you noticed any problems with your Wireless Broadband service since 5G was installed on the tower to which you are connected?

Was this helpful?

Mine rarely reboots, but operates on just 1 bar of 4GX signal on Telstra repeater. It can lose the network when handed to a more distant/worse cell and I manually reboot it.

The reason 4GX has deteriorated is that Telstra have in almost all situations relocated the 4GX antennas from the prime / highest position on the tower or rooftop, and given that position  to the 5G antennas. The 4GX antenna reception has noticeably deteriorated because of that.

P.S. I am referring to a M2 which is brilliantly fast
