Author Topic: DAP 1860 Disconnects & reboots on Heavy traffic (Excellent Signal strength)  (Read 5559 times)

Is it me or does it happen to everyone, I've had this extender for years, but the problem is that this extender reboots with heavy traffic, coming from 2 PC.
Both PCs when doing a backup, make the extender reboot, and the backup fails.

Extender is running on the latest firmware which is version 1.04, I had High hopes on it but seems like this extender is not meant for heavy tasks like backng up OS, file transfers etc. In short, it can't take the load.
The extender has 3 bars lit, which means the signal strength is good, then why disconnect?

So far I've tried, Canada firmware, Middle east firmware and Australia. All the 3 have the same problem

I might replace this extender with the EAX80 Netgear Nighthawk in the future. THis doesn't seem to help much.

What is the distance between the extender and host router.
What happens if only 1 PC is doing a backup. You maybe overloading the extender having two backups running at the same time.
