BGW320-500 -- WIFI drops (shuts off) when plugging device(s) into Ethernet ports
Just moved my AT&T service from my old home to my new home. Lucky we had fiber available here since we had it at the old house.
Anyway, I had the old black router at the old house, where I used IP Passthrough to a Synology RT2600AC. For many years, this was a great configuration with absolutely no issues.
The installer came out, did a great job, BTW, and had the internet up and running after fixing some old issues from the previous installation.
So fast forward a couple days and I attempted to do the IP Passthrough with the new router (BGW320-500). As soon as I plugged in the Router to one of the available Ethernet ports, the WIFI generated by the BGW320-500 completely shut off. Also, there was no DHCP to the RT2600AC or the laptop I had plugged into another of the available ports - I think they were 4 and 3, respectively (top port and one down from the top port).
So I unplugged both devices and about 30 seconds later, the WIFI on the BGW320-500 came back on and things are back to normal.
I logged into the configuration interface to see if there was any setting I was missing that said something like "WIFI or WIRED ONLY" - but the wired connection won't work at all.
Google rendered very little info without any solutions. Has anybody seen this before?
Yes, I've turned it off and on again.
