Hi guys, ive had this probelm with a few routers now and i was hoping this new EA6500 would fix it but no. Whenever i dont use the wifi over night, next day it doesnt work, i need to reboot the router for the WIFI to work again. Wired connections always works and doesnt go down. Anyone know how i can fix this?

When you say that you’re not using the wifi overnight, did you mean you’re turning off the router or you’re not simply using any wireless connection at all? If you’re not using the wireless connection it should continue to work. Aside from rebooting the router to get the wifi working again, what other troubleshooting did you do to the router? Make sure that the router has the latest firmware. You could also try resetting the router and reconfigure its settings.

Are your devices connected to both the 5GHz network and 2.4GHz network and are experiencing the same thing? If it’s just on one of the networks, how about try to connect them to just one band and see if the problem is still experienced. What are your wireless settings for both the network (channel and security)? Are you using the smartwifi firmware or the cloud?

The secuirty is on the wpa2/wpa mixed personal and both 2.4 and 5.0 are enabled, but on the devices i think i only connected 2.4 i have not tried the 5.0 one i dont think my phones pick it up but ill try. How would i know if im using cloud or smart wifi? i double click the smart wifi icon and it opens a browser which i log into to be able to change settings.. does that mean im using smart wifi or cloud?

It would be unusual for a series of routers to be acting the same way. Perhaps you might need to check on the drivers of your laptop’s wireless adapter if it has been updated. For EA600, you can only use the cloud based ui.

Go into your wireless adapter properties under power management and uncheck the box:
'Allow the computer to shut off this device to save power'

But the thing is its not just the laptop, when this happens all laptops in the house and all our cell phones stop picking up the wifi so its not the laptop adapters its the router for sure. One thing im wondering.. can my verizon network extender be causing this to happen which is connected to my router via one of the lan wires i guess thats what its called? The network extender uses the high speed internet to boost cell phone reception in the house. I hope its not causing this because without it i have no signal in the house
