Confused Troubles with my new rt-ac66u

I have an rt-ac66u and it keeps dropping 2.4ghz signal, the 5ghz signal is flawless and it keeps dropping so I have to restart the router every once in a while. I originally had it at the latest firmware and then I upgraded to the asuswrtmerlin latest one, that didn't work either, I didn't expect it to anyways. This was my replacement for the 1st rt-ac66u I had which had the same exact problems, constantly dropping 2.4ghz signal. Its a rare thing to receive two lemons so I think its a software issue or something else.

Have you tried changing settings on the 2.4 GHz band - Prodessional - there is
a setting for just this problem : I am not at home and can not remember what it is but it is a setting there you can change from no to yes. Look in the forum
here where other users had had the same problem.
Update found it : Add enhanced interference management option for 2.4GHz in Advanced settings->wireless-> Professional

I had the exact same problem with my AC66U. After some research I found a post on dslreports to disable Enhanced Interference Management in the Wireless / Professional settings (it is only listed under the 2.4Ghz drop down) and after that I have not had any 2.4Ghz drops!

In the dslreports post the poster said he had gotten this tip from rmerlin of course so thank you again rmerlin!!!

Thanks you guys so much that helped a lot. I actually was messing around with the settings earlier today and I reset to factory settings and ever since the 2.4ghz network was flawless.
