We have a home router, Linksys-Cisco E3000, about 1.5years old. It now continually resets, cylcing continually. Occasionally it settles down and I can get internet for anywhere from a few minutes or a few hours.
Is the Linksys toast? I've tried the resets.
Help?

No. I can get into the unit because it's not stable foreign connection. Using Google device os. No internet plug receptacle.

If there’s no firmware update and you’ve done a complete factory reset then it’s likely a hardware issue that you can’t fix.

E3000 is new to me. Son got it used.
I imagine its toast.
A new router is less than $30.

Sounds like it is on the fritz. A lot of these routers run hot and have inadequate cooling. I think it's part of the design philosophy to build in future failure through constantly running over-temp. It doesn't help that users often shove them in a corner, in a cabinet or somewhere else where they is zero airflow. I'd try a new one. They're not so expensive and it'd be an opportunity to step-up from 802.11n to ac or ax....
