Hey all- all the techies on here I mean...
Trying to escape wi-fi router madness. It seems that every couple days, my router will stop working with everything else. Printer (a Brother MFC-7860DW), laptop, and so on. The, for some reason, it all sorts itself out a day or two later. Multiple reboots the day of the issue may or may not help. Nothing seems to resolve the problem, it just seems to sort itself out.
I am hating it, and am thinking perhaps a recent router would be the fix. The printer is new, and the laptop has worked well in other wifi environments.
Any suggestions, toward a new router, fixing the network problem, or fixing my old router? Any insight appreciated.
Actually, the most reliable way to hook it all up is through my android phone, but that is undesirable for a number of reasons.
