I recently added Amazon Echo and some smart home devices to my home. Each time, after I add a new device, the WiFi on my xfinity modem/router restarts on its own. The rest of the modem connections are fine. The built-in network hub doesn’t lose connection to internet. The home phone doesn’t lose connection. Only the WiFi resets. Once the new smart home device is set up and the WiFi comes back on, the WiFi will remain on, until I add another device.
Any ideas on why this is happening?
If the new additions are working, the router most likely had to reset after each new device was added to install the new information. No problems? Don't worry.
Hmmm... Never heard of a router or a gateway device behaving that way normally..
