Router Rebooting - "Boot reason: watchdog reset (cause: 0x3)"

Hi, seems I'm another with these bothersome Watchdog Resets every few days (sometimes more often).

I've been having problems with the 5GHz wifi drop-outs since getting the router in September (raised in a different thread) so switched my laptop to a cabled-connection (through a TPLink PowerLine device) for a more reliable connection - but was still getting intermittent loss of connection every couple of days.

Checking the router logs, each time it happened, I saw this....

Looking back through the logs, it looks like it's been happening pretty much since I got the router (it appeared to run a firmware update shortly after I switched it on for the first time):

Hope you can help!

Re: Router Rebooting - "Boot reason: watchdog reset (cause: 0x3)"

Sorry to jump on this message, but I'm having exactly the same issue... 'watchdog reset (cause: 0x3)', every day or so.

I see other similar problems that were seemingly fixed by the provision of a new router: https://community.plus.net/t5/My-Router/One-Hub-Watchdog-Resets-cause-0x3/td-p/1613381.

Plusnet: If the fix is indeed a replacement router, please may I have one?

Thanks.
