I just ordered this router/modem to replace a failing TP Link W9980, I'm hoping it'll fix my disconnections, the TP Link can't hold an uptime of even 24 hours which is pathetic. Is this model still receiving tech support via firmware? TP Link seem to drop support of their products so damn fast which is one of the reasons I have switched to Billion.
Yes this model is still supported

Fantastic, I'm praying it fixes my issue tomorrow. I'm so sick of disconnecting for 2 minutes 10 times a day.

So far so good, seems like it was the TP Link router dying after all.

Still experiencing very inaccurate line stats... This is getting a little ridiculous... I kind of expected a fix by now, months ago tbh. I'll revert back to the 2.52.d10 firmware and see if the issue reoccurs.

Ok, well it also seems to affect the NL as well, surprised no one has brought it up yet.

You can see that the rtx_tx value is incorrect:

Code: Select all

                        Retransmit Counters
rtx_tx:         277731121               0

May I ask, without trying to sound rude, but what are these engineers doing? The problem is still occurring after nearly a year, do you think that's acceptable?

Not really, bitswapping has disabled itself again.
