R8000P WIFI Issues Every Few days
I just had the problem re-occur again this morning. (The latest firmware is installed -Firmware Version V18.104.22.168_1.2.26 on this device and it was installed manually as suggested by another post.)
(In order to help isolate this WIFI problem I had the 2.4G radio turned off and was only using the 5G band.) - No channel conflict in my area.
From my Windows WIFI PC I get the error "Can't connect to this network" when trying to use the WIFI, specifically just trying to associate with the SSID. I get this behavious if I use my PC or MACbook pro.
I connected a PC to the ethernet port on the inside interface of the R8000P and I was able to access the Internet but still could not SSH or HTTP to the R8000P in it's error condition. I then disconnected the ethernet cable and tried WIFI but got the error "Can't connect to this network" when trying to associate with any of my SSIDs on the R8000P.
Problem Summary of problem:
- Occurs every few days
- Data transfer through the R8000P using an ethernet cable still works
- All SSIDs stop working with the error "Can't connect to this network"
- Web console does not work (can't be accessed) on R8000P using ethernet cable or of course WIFI
- Can't SSH or telnet to the R8000P
Bug workarround is to power off and power back on.
