    And I've understood that is something that has to do with my chromecast and when I use to stream from NetFlix app on android for sure.

    After that I use it, the router hang up and wifi on 5Ghz dies, it remains the SSID on 2,4Ghz but it doesn't work and the device doesn't answer even on the LAN.

    Tp link support in Italy didn't answer me with a beta firmware, they say that's because of the saturation created by the Chromecast. But it seems me a bug..
    This is what they answered me:

    Gentile Cliente,
    il problema è originato dalle recenti modifiche ai client per arginare la falla KRACK.
    Stiamo preparando un firmware che risolva il problema, occorrono alcune settimane affinchè superi tutte le fasi di test.
    Nel frattempo La preghiamo di mantenere disabilitata la rete a 5GHz.

    English: the problem is caused by recent updates on clients (I guess android devices but maybe also win10 laptops) to fix the KRACK issue. We're working on a firmware to solve the problem, but it'll be some weeks until it passes the necessary tests. In the meantime, please keep the 5ghz network disabled.

    It's official, it's a bug generated by the Chromecast

    So far probably we have only to wait for a firmware update from Google and maybe patch from modem vendors I think.

    Indeed also some netgear devices seem affected: https :// community.netgear.com/t5/Orbi/Android-8-Crashes-Orbi/m-p/1452347/highlight/true

I recommend people still having issues contact Tech Support and ask for the beta firmware. This is the link they gave me but I'm not sure if it's the same for other routers: http://support.tp-link.com/f/115bd6f0b9/?dl=1

    I will report if I still have the issue.

    Thanks

    Awesome, great to see people communicating to work this thing out. I also have an Archer D7 with the same problem, and also had a bit of an idea that it could be my Google Pixel (and now my Pixel 2 XL) causing it as it would almost always happen as soon as I check my phone after a long interval of inactivity (e.g. when I wake up). I run a mining rig at home so I'm able to track exactly when the router "freezes". I was so close to replacing it with another modem router until I came across this, so thank you everyone. I will disable 5Ghz for now and I hope it won't happen as often. Hopefully both Google and TP Link will release updates soon.

    Curious; I've had my Chromecast for over a year now but this problem only started happening recently.

    Google is rolling up update that fix this issue

    https://support.google.com/googlehom..._topic=7071995

    And infact the problem was not only for Chromecast, yesterday on my D5 it happened even with only the android device using Netflix and when the Chromecast was turned off. The question is only to understand when it will delivered on your android device.

    Just an update on my end, I've disabled the 5Ghz band for almost a week now and have not had any problems. My Android devices are still connected to the WiFi and am using my Chromecast. Of course, this is not a fix but just a way to get by for now.

    Same here, disabling the 5GHz network the router works fine.... but that's one of the reasons that made me buy it!

    hi all, google claimed the solution of our problem has been provided with the latest Google play service update. In my case with the D7 i'm still experiencing crash of the Modem, is it solved on your side?
