Random restarts

Hi! I'm having issue where Sense is restarting now and then. Last night the Sense restarted about 5 times, today morning it has restarted several times. And just now it has done it again restarting around 5 times. Any idea what is causing this issue?

    Hi @Saimoni 


    This is rather strange to see F-Secure SENSE restarts on its own without an electrical surge causing it.


    Would you be able to try to reset the SENSE router to factory settings as a means of troubleshooting the issue?


    You may find the instructions in the below guide:


    Please be advised this would completely clear out any configuration you have for the network, and thus should permit to set up a new configuration. 


    Do let us know if this helps. 

  • It mostly happens when I'm watching Netflix or Apple TV+. It's odd that the clock is set to 4 - 5 minutes forward after the restart and sets itself to correct time when connection is established. 

    I'll reset at some point. But is there any problems that might occur because I've set the Sense's WiFi as my WiFi is set with the Apple Airports, I just copied the name and the password from my Airport WiFi to Sense, but I made sure that 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz channels are set manually to not to conflict each other on each Airport and Sense?

  • After the full reset Sense has restarted 3 times in an hour. 


    It must be a load issue. I have around 30 devices which are around 4 IoT, 2 Apple TV's, LG C9 and SL8YG soundbar, 2 Airport Extremes and a TimeCapsule, Nintendo Switch and lots of Apple devices and so on.
