Wifi will not turn on. 1900 Pro

Does anyone know of a fix for the wifi not turning on. My Ethernet is currently disabled. 

No idea what's going on. 

Anyone?

I have the same issue. My Wi-Fi was working properly for three days and all of a sudden in the middle of me watching a show it turned off. It now will not turn back on no matter what I do. I have rebooted the unit and my Wi-Fi several times. I have unchecked the ethernet and checked the Wi-Fi several times, but it keeps going back to Wi-Fi off and ethernet on even though I have no ethernet cable connected to it. I am wondering if it is something to do with my ISP blocking my Wi-Fi. Please help I am so frustrated I want to return the unit. This is the second one I have bought that has this problem. I cannot see a fix for this in any of the discussions so far.

I also just noticed that even after rebooting the unit, it is stuck at 7pm Wed, Dec 31 2014. I have changed it to the correct date and time manually but it still will not let me turn on my Wi-Fi device in the settings. It therefore does not recognize my router.

Try "forgetting" your network, turn off WiFi and then enable Ethernet

Then turn off Ethernet, enable WiFi and re-enter the WiFi password

Short answer, you may be experiencing frequency interference from one or more other devices within range of your router and/or MyGica box.

Yes, even on the 5 Ghz band, and yes, even with the abundance of channels available on the 5 Ghz band.

Arm yourself with a good WiFi Analyzer, such as Kaibits' WiFi Overview 360 Pro ...

This app has an excellent "channel check" feature that will analyze ALL channel signals in your area, including those of your neighbours!

Cheers!

Hi Tedsky,

I will do that and see if that helps. Would plugging it into my computer be the answer as I followed the other suggestions about “forgetting” the network, turn Wi-Fi and Ethernet off and on, as suggested, but I can’t even get the Wi-Fi on myGica box to turn on at all. The box also states every time I reboot it goes back to December 31, 2014. There must be something more wrong. If you have any other suggestions I would welcome them as well. Thank you so much for your help.

I just flashed my box with the latest version of the 1900 pro firmware and now when i turn on the wifi it just sits on the scanning....

Everything else works fine except the wifi.

I've rolled back to the older firmware but it doesn't fix the wifi
