    Exclamation Archer D5 crashing - is it the Google cast / MDNS problem?

    Model : Archer D5

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version : 0.9.1 0.8 v002e.0 Build 150526 Rel.63088n

    ISP : iiNet Australia[/COLOR]

    My Archer D5 has begun crashing over the last few weeks:
    5Ghz Wifi disappears
    2.4Ghz Wifi remains on, but usually no internet access
    Ethernet/wired connections usually lose internet connection (not always)
    Modem GUI usually not available.
    Latest firmware installed.
    Solved by reboot, works for a day, maybe two.

    I have a Chromecast (not usually turned on), but no Google Home products. Several Android devices, all Android 7 or lower (no 8 / Oreo devices).

    Is this the same Google cast / MDNS packet problem that is being reported across many TP Link (and other make) routers?
    Will there be a firmware update (despite it being a "end of life" product? If not, anything that can be done to protect the modem from the problem?
    Is the real fix going to come from Google?

    Try to disable wifi 5ghz.
    I have an Archer D5 too and I've written to the tech support, they said (translated from italian):

    "Dear customer,
    the problem arised due to the recent clients' updates to fix the KRACK issue.
    We're working on a firmware to solve the issue but it will be some weeks until it's released.
    In the meantime, please keep the 5ghz band disabled."

    It seems this problem has impacted many routers.Many guys are talking about that.

    I am not sure but maybe you D5 is also the same
