I have the Actiontec MI424WR-GEN3I router with 40.21.24 firmware version. However, of late, I keep getting frequent disconnections - the Wifi is lost as well as Internet connectivity. The router continues to display all green lights.
I did add a Samsung TV with smarthub recently as well as an EV that connects to the Wifi. It is set to Performance 802.11n mode.
I don't think the problems are from adding these devices as iirc it happened before but now it happens quite a lot. I suspect maybe interference from bluetooth? Or something busted in the Verizon router?
I checked the logs on router and it says -
ar5416LoadNF: *** TIMEOUT while waiting for nf to load: AR_PHY_AGC_CONTROL ***
quite a bit and it seems to correspond to the times I've lost connectivity. I even changed the channels to no avail.
Looked online and found no firmware updates.
So, here's my question - can I compile my own firmware from the Actiontec firmware page which seems to be opensource now and load it on the Verizon Router?
If you have Verizon TV service with their stbs, you need to use their router with their firmware.
Or you have to set up the router per the thread on using your own router.
