TP-Link Archer C7 (hardware version v2) is the most unstable-working router I ever had. It randomly stopped working at least once in two days. Sometimes I had to restart it three times a day but Internet was constantly dropping (even when connected via Ethernet) and Wi-Fi kept disconnecting all the time.
