First off, if I posted this in the wrong place, feel free to move it. I had a unique problem with my home network this evening. Around 3pm, I set down to write an essay for one of my classes. I attempted to print my paper assignment but for some reason, It couldn't connect to my wireless printer. upon investigating the printer, it appeared to be in sleep mode and wouldn't wake up. So I pushed the power button to reboot it. I became sidetracked for a little bit but then returned to my computer. I noticed that my computer couldn't connect to the internet. So I pull out the iPad, no connection there either. I head to the living room and notice the hard-wired Apple TV is working but the wireless one does not. So the first step I take, reboot the wireless router. After the router starts back up, the first wireless signal works, by the time I start checking the second wireless signal,(my router broadcast 3 wireless networks), I lost wi-fi connection again. I did all the normal trouble shooting steps and finally ended up resetting it back to factory settings. After the factory reboot of the router, I set up my networks again and they still won't allow anything to connect. Being extremely annoyed at this point, i did another reboot but left the default networks name and password in place. At last, I could connect everything to my wi-fi again. I couldn't understand why my named networks wouldn't work though. Finally, I return to my office to finish my assignment when I notice that my wireless printer is still trying to shut down. It had been attempting to shut down for hours at this point. Being the expert that I am with technology, I applied a secret repair technique to my printer. I unplugged it. All of a sudden, my original wi-fi networks started working again! My question, how in the hell does a malfunctioning wi-fi printer disable a router and the 3 networks its broadcasting? Below is a list of equipment involved. Modem: Arris CM820 Router: Belkin AC1800 DB Home Server: Synology DS414 Printer: Canon MX340 Wireless Interfaces: 2 Apple MBP, iPad 3rd Gen, 2 Apple TV 3rd Gen one wireless, one wired.
