A firmware update has already been pushed out. 

Not many complaints now day. It was fixed is my guess.

Problem has been fixed at my place for a good while now. I hard wired ethernet before the fix. I get better results than with wifi.

This has not been fixed for me. After the firmware update, it was good for about 3 weeks. Then it went out - no 5ghz. I called support and he guy said I needed to change my channel to 149. He did that, and, as with every change, it was good again. This time it lasted about 2 weeks. It went out on Saturday, 5/19. I didn't want to call over the weekend, so I just rebooted, which brought it back.  I will call it in this week and see what they say.

I'm also starting to see disconnections again.  I'm having to reconnect my devices often

You could ask for a new router from Verizon. The replacement may function as needed.

you can also buy a better high end router with external antenna and beam forming and multiple bands a/ac/b/g/n I believe there is another band being tested. But no devices will use it for quite sometime.

now you could ask a friend to borrow a router and see if the same thing occurs.

Hope it all works out for you.

Do you think Verizon sent out yet another update? 

I know you are the original poster and I thought it was all set. I have not seen any posts except one related to a update. The one at DSL Reports. However the original poster was calling the actiontec router with a Fios Quantum Gateway updated firmware.

someone there did ask the poster to verify what they are using.

I don't know if Verizon pushed out another update (I doubt it).  I just know that my devices haven't been keeping a stable connection lately.  It's not like it was before where they couldn't connect at all on 5ghz.  They just seem to be dropping their connection often and, in some cases, I need to re-add the connection manually because the device can't find the network (I don't broadcast my SID).

I have noticed wifi disconnecting on a couple of my devices (Windows 10 desktop and Apple TV) for the past two weeks.

I have to check, if there was another Quantum router firmware update since the last update, that seemed to fix this 5GHz issue.

So can someone techy out there help me (non-techie). So I am a Fios internet only-no longer using router for TV on demand, etc. Can I just take the coax that is in my old router and plug it in to a new high-end router and call it a day? Is there anything more that I have to do? Again I am not a techie guy here so sorry for the dumb question but at this point I would rather just spend a few hundred dollars on a good router and be done with it as I constantly lose my 5G and frankly have poor coverage in a home that is not all that big . I bought the gateway router outright originally so I’m not paying any monthly charge on it anyway
