You ask me an interesting question Paul. I often do reboot it and modem; especially If I haven’t done so in a month or so. A few nights ago, I was using 5G to stream video on the iPad, and my 5G signal just went “poof”. Wired was ok, 2.4 G was ok, so I rebooted router. First time for that experience. But, as you know, our ASUS router is a workhorse and can handle it all, I believe; up to 99 connections
You do give me an idea. I have two new WD N750 routers I got new for $20 ea. when WD liquidated the My Net. One, I intended to use when we car travel, but most places have pulled their wired connections and I am stuck with often crummy wireless. Anyway, I could put the Fire TV stick and Chromecast2 on a separate WD router. The only thing in home using 2.4G today is the Amazon Echo. It could also connect to WD router. I have a wired house and a network switch at 4 wall locations. I have about a dozen Ethernet connections in network switches in large entertainment cabinet. Add a couple iPhones and iPads and some Kindle tablets, printers, 3 laptops and a WD NAS and well, the ASUS Traffic Manager recently showed 32 devices connected to network, so yes, a lot going on here for just two people Not all gadgets are doing work at once though! Likely won’t do it; not really necessary and a bit of an added hassle. Oh well.
