Is there a general consensus what the lifespan of a router is? I’m ok with the speed but I get random interruptions in my devices which causes them to reset poorly. I only know it to be true because I have alexa that really gets thrown when it loses connection. I have had the SBG7600AC2 for a few years now and while I wish it had a little more range, I can see thats is not the problem since the lights go out on the modem themselves. I love the combo units that save me from renting from xfinity.
house is about 1700 square feet. Lets say I do upgrade to SURFboard G34 that is currently on sale. if someone was to recommend a extender to help me boost the signal to the further away echos and give me a decent signal outback, what would you recommend?
oh also idk why but every once in awhile with my new computer I have to restart it to get internet from the Ethernet port. I find it weird I can connect ot wifi but I figure thats more on my computer then it is is the router/modem combo.
