having observed an issue during auto settings for 5ghz radio. i tried now not to use the dfs channel and set the radio channel to non-dfs static channel I will observe this config if no further restarts or random disconnections
Following my configuration for more than 24 hrs, I haven't observed a single disconnection or restart of my radio signal with my AXE11000. There seem to be bugs in the program experience if you enable an automatic channel that includes the DFS channel. What I have done I set my 5GHz to channel 48
I appreciate the collective information being shared here and share in the frustration. I purchased 2 x AXE11000 routers the day they were released and have experienced the same crash behavior the entire duration of ownership. Only a power cycle will restore functionality, so I purchased a device/smart plug that resets my router when the connection goes down. After 2 years of ownership, there have been 197 restarts. It's been a very frustrating ownership experience, especially considering the price premium we paid.
I am going to throw my hat into the ring on this one. I have had a GT-AX11000 for 3-4 years. First few years not many problems. Since spring this year, I have had problems all the time. I thought it was a firmware issue like everyone else but now I think it is a general software issue or a hardware issue. I have had the same issue as most people. I have a GT-AX11000 with 5 ZenWifi Aimesh nodes. All are hardwired. I have all devices hardwire that I can. I have all kinds of smarthome devices, wired and wifi. Currently under Network map Asus is telling me I have 90 devices. I would say 1/3 wired and 2/3 wifi. then with Zwave and Zigbee, Nest, etc. So a lot going on.
Started out that I would start getting notifications that Nest, Smartthings and other devices had lost their internet connections, then the wired devices would stop, streaming tv, etc. . The problem was I was usually at work and could not look into it. It would just stop. After a few times I finally was home. The router was still on and did not restart but was not responsive or just really slow. You could reboot it and the same thing. I though firmware. What would work was unplugging it and letting sit for 30 minutes and restart and it would work. Might be for a day or even a week or month but it would come back. Finally I figured factory reset. Worked for awhile them back again. Repeat just like everyone else. This did not fix it but I did finally notice that when this was happening if I looked at the CPU usage the cores woutl be really high. Normally they are at 0-30% spiking higher are points but in that range. Memory was always at 60% and flat lined. When everything would be down the CPU's was up at 70-80%. So something was causing it to be overloaded.
After the rebooting and factory restarting for 6-8 months thing changed. So in the last 2-3 months it is different. Now it is just wifi that is freaking out. So I will get alerts that wifi devices are offline. Sometimes a few, sometimes all. Yesterday I was getting 2.5gh devices going on and off all evening. Even the wired devices were slow. The CPU was fine. Restart and no change. Then after just saying screw it and I will deal with it tomorrow. It did it for a few more hours and then stopped. No issues the rest of the night and all day today. No idea what is going on and lost on what to do or try. I do not want to replace 6 devices.
I bought a axe16000 today and will swap that in and see if that makes any difference. Maybe I am overloading the wifi and router. this one has 4 channels so lets see what happens.
