I know this has most likely been posted before so I apologize in advance, however, I have not been able to find this same issue.


From time to time my TC will stop broadcasting the WIFI signal. None of my WIFI devices can find or connect to it. Not G or N networks. However, the TC is working! My wired connected devices are working and the speed is what is should be. Does anyone have any ideas? I have tried different Firmware and they all seem to have the issue. It only started in the last month or so. Its been fine until then.


Any thoughts or suggested would be greatly appreciated.

    Unfortunately people experience issues if they upgrade to 7.6.4 even if they downgrade again.. that firmware seems to make some major permanent changes to the router..


    Have a try though.. go back to 7.6.1 unless you have a very early Gen4 in which case 7.5.2 will work. Do a factory reset and see how it goes.


    Set different wireless names.. short, no spaces and pure alphanumeric. Definitely a different name for 5ghz.


    Set manual channels, 11, 6, 1 for 2.4ghz in that order.


    Set around 36-40 and around 150 for 5ghz and see how that goes.
