Problem: Receiver inexplicably lost connection to wifi network
Suddenly when I tried to stream Spotify from my Windows 10 laptop to my receiver (RX-V1081) earlier this week, my laptop couldn't find my receiver on my wifi network even though it had been working for months. When I logged onto my router I could see the receiver but for some reason my laptop couldn't. After days of frustration and pulling all my hair out I emailed Steve from Eastwood hifi (Sydney), the store I bought the receiver from and he gave me the solution.
1. Turn off (you have love IT don't you - the old turn off trick) and unplug receiver and router and other connected devices (eg turn OFF/unplgy mobile phones, TV's connected to wifi network).
2. Wait some time (eg 30+ seconds) then turn on router.
3. Once router is happy and flashing lots of green lights plug in and turn on receiver. Check that its wifi light is on so that you know it has connected to wifi network.
4. Now power up laptop and when you check your network with any luck your receiver will now show up. And with some more luck streaming Spotify to receiver should work just fine again.
I think the real problem was that my wifi network had too many wifi connected devices 10+ and when I turned everything off and only turned on some of them I had only 4 connected devices.
