Question Randomly losing internet connection for a couple of seconds, using 5Ghz Wi-fi TP-Link Archer A6 router.


Mar 2, 2019
Hello everyone, recently i get myself a new internet package with 500mb/s dowload and upload speed. Before that i had a 100 mb/s connection and everything was fine. But now, starting from moment of getting a new package - i randomly get disconnections on my Lan and wifi network. Those disconnects are short, aproximatly 2-5 seconds and they can happen randomly from 2 times a day to five times a day.
I am using TP-Link Archer A6 with one LAN connection to my main PC and two Wi-fi networks at 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz. I can't update firmware because of region-lock(?), i am using russian model, with latest update in 2018ish.
I have already talked to my internet provider and everything seems fine on their end.
Also, it seems that if i connect my pc to internet cable without using router - everything is fine too.
