R6900 randomly requires all devices to enter password

I have an R6900 that randomly requires all devices to renter the WiFi passphrase. Yesterday everything (PC, TV, smart phones, printers, etc) was working fine. This morning none of the devices will communicate unless I reenter the (unchanged) WiFi passphrase. Once I do that the device works fine. Unfortunately I now need to reenter the passphrase on every device (~20 devices) before they will connect. For phones and PCs this is easy but for printers, cameras, and other devices, this is a real pain.

 

This is not the first time this problem has occured. It seems to occur every month or so and is getting really tiresome. Any ideas as to the cause?

 

thanks

Are you on the latest firmware? what is the security type you are using WPA? WPA2?
