Billion 8800NL - All Wireless Clients Disconnect

Hi everyone,

Every so often, all wireless clients connected to our Billion 8800NL disconnect. Windows reports "Unable to connect to this network" and iOS devices report "Incorrect password". A reboot of the CPE fixes this, but I would like to avoid doing this, if possible.

Please let me know if you require any more details.

Thanks,

Will

Is this the 8800NL or 8800NL R2?

As the device has been discontinued a while back now all I can suggest is trying the latest version of firmware (attached)

Already have that firmware installed. I would use the R2, but the chipset is really poor and the 8800AXL R2 had so many issues.

Ok, so the same issue occurred this morning. It looks like the WiFi didn't have an ability to renew it's lease! So, I simply created a new interface called "WiFi" and the connections resumed!
