My TP-LINK TL-WR840N router gone full retard - Does hard reset about every half hour

My router TP-LINK TL-WR840N (V2) have gone nuts. From today, it have started to drop connection.

Upon investigation, I found that the all the setting of router settings got reset. The wifi name became, "OpenWRT" (since I have installed OpenWRT since long). Password gets removed, ISP setting gets removed. Basically router hard resets on its own.

So I fix it. Setup all the settings. Internet works fine. For maybe an hour. Then again the same thing. Internet goes down. I check and find that router got reset. So again I restore the backup. (Which I created earlier).

But the router resets on its own again, while I am using the Internet. On its own!! I AM PERPLEXED!


Does a router have some "CMOS" battery kind of thing? I am not able to resolve this issue, and keep on setting the router setting through backup. Please help.

Quite unrelated but I own the same router, can you please link me to OpenWRT page where you installed it?

I am not sure what is the download link nor can I find the firmware file. But I can do give you the version of the firmware.. and you would need to do some googling.

Do prior research before doing that tho.

I turned off router for 15 min. Then removed from wall mounted position and kept on table. After which the router didn't reset for hours now.
If this fixes the issue, I would draw conclusion that it was overheating issue. Lets see.
