Query – Ought to I purchase a brand new router or go in a unique route?

I presently have an Arris SB8200 modem used with Spectrum at 200Mbps tier. Router is a Netgear Nighthawk AC2100 (sure, that is the precise mannequin# stamped on the silly factor; finest i can see it’s an R7200).

I’ve the next gadgets: Wired important pc; wi-fi to secondary pc
Two laptops, 3 tablets, two telephones, Roku StreamingStick and Swap. We watch 99% of our TV through streaming.

So, after a storm just a few weeks in the past our web was out. Spectrum got here, changed our line from the pole to the home. Every little thing labored tremendous.
Quickly after the router loses web (not Wifi, precise connection to the WWW) often.

Modem lights and logs don’t point out an outage or lack of sign.
Router community doesn’t go down as I can connect with each the router and the modem through internet interface.
I’ve reset each gadgets and up to date to the most recent firmware.

It nonetheless randomly drops connection and is just solvable through router energy cycle. Ocasionally, regardless of the situation is self-resolves after a minute (i.e. i’ll lose web, then after between 30-60 seconds, it comes again). Normally although, an influence cycle is required to revive performance.

The modem is newer than the router. I estimate the router was bought 3 years in the past.

1. Any normal ideas on this situation?
2. I have been pondering (since I now personal our dwelling) of presumably redoing the essential infrastructure of our dwelling community if it is sensible. Earlier than forking out for a brand new router, is there a greater extra dependable setup for my dwelling community?

Thanks for the enter.
