Netgear Nighthawk MK2

Answered

Hi 

I bought this router and find it constantly going to sleep and I need to walk upto it and press the on button to wake it up to use the internet. The idea was to be always on around the house so it is very annoying.  I’ve looked at settings and can’t find a way to keep it on all the time.  I did find a setting change that keeps the display screen on but that’s pretty useless.   Any help would be appreciated

Do a full reset and reboot to see if that resolves the issue
