I am still in my first month of home internet but it has been good enough to cancel my previous cable provider whose service was unreliable at times. When I first got the 5G home internet, I tried using it as my wi-fi hotspot as well. That didn’t work well. I have close to 20 devices and they would all connect but some connections failed over time or some devices would not work properly. It was definitely not going to be reliable enough to keep. Although the symptoms were different, I had similar problems with my cable providers’ all-in-one modem when it came to wi-fi. My solution for that was to offload the wi-fi onto a dedicated device and just use the modem as a modem. That helped with the wi-fi issues but still left me with unreliable internet at times. I went the same route with the 5G home internet as well. My wi-fi performance is doing great and the 5G home internet is hard-wired to the wi-fi router. Everything works great except that on a couple occasions my internet just completely stopped working. The first time when I checked the modem through the web admin it had been up for a little over 7 days and a reboot fixed the issue. This morning the same thing happened. I checked the web admin and the uptime was a little over 9 days. Again, rebooting fixed the issue. I’ll update this question as I gather more data but has anyone else seen behavior like this? My guess is that the device has some sort of memory leak that I’m hitting after a week of usage and a reboot clears it out.
