FS#2205 - Linksys E2000 loses networks

Supply the following if possible:
- Device problem occurs random
- Software versions of OpenWrt 18.06.2, no additional packages installed, vanilla OpenWRT
- Steps to reproduce - none.

The router is a converted unit from WRT320N.

On seemingly random intervals from several days to several weeks it loses all networking ability: no ping to outside or from outside to the device but it gives out IP to the devices (DHCP seems to work) but no internet. I haven’t checked if other devices in the network are visible to one another. The devices connected through wire (Windows boxes) show yellow triangles on the network status (DNS server not found or sth like this). The wireless devices connected show “Connected but not internet” or alike. Restarting the router does not fix the problem. The only way to overcome it is to press “Reset” button at the back of the router. Several times I had to do it at least twice after the reboot: reset then reboot then reset again and reboot again.

I configure the device through SSH (dropbear and keys) and copy the config files in place (/overlay/...). Every time I use all the same files.

I’ve diff’d the configs when the router is out of order and my backup where I restore the configs from and they are the same to the last bit. In that state if I connect the computer to the WLAN cable directly there is internet connection. It is not the provider (I’ve cursed them enough but as it seems is my routers fault). It is like this since I use OpenWRT - v15.05.1 Chaos Calmer.

Frankly, I have limited to none network knowledge and don’t know how to diagnose the problem so I can help myself or others further.
