I purchased a D7000v2 (the v2 is important) a month ago - Amazon black Friday for £89. However, whilst throughput appears to be unaffected by 'buffering' (experienced on PN router), I *have* experienced total loss of communication on both 2.4G and 5G WiFI networks. On devices, WiFi appears to be connected, but 'no internet' is reported by the device in use, i.e. phone or tablet. However, wired devices are working fine, so internet connection is not the issue. Switching WiFi off/ on the device in use sorts it out. It happens infrequently, but often enough to be annoying - and not what I want at all!
D7000v7 firmware is V126.96.36.199_1.0.1, apparently this is the latest.
Basic question, would the D7000v2 router be recommended here, or an alternative?
Plusnet Unlimited Fibre Extra connection, my old PN supplied router (Plusnet Hub One, circa April 2017) was suffering with buffering issues, and I also thought I'd get better WiFi range with the D7000. I've not seen any specific line stability issues in a few years, so I don't think it's outside my home!
