    Hey there, I recently ran into an issue with one of my apartment complexes, it seems like one of the routers has been restarting, although that's not the biggest issue, it seems like when that happens, it drops the connection between both the downstairs router (The one directly connected to the modem) and the upstairs router. This wouldn't be that strange if in the process the hostname of the downstairs router didn't change (it changes from ICC.Linder to RAF.Tomato.) and there wasn't an error riddled log for the upstairs router, of which I'm linking to in this post with hopes that someone could look at the log and hopefully figure out what's going on.

    For the time being, i've wirelessly associated the second floor router with the basement router because I suspect it's a wiring issue, though I could be wrong. - This is the log itself, because I couldn't figure out how to attach them via the message interface.

    If the ssid changes to RAF.tomato then it has lost it's configuration I expect, and reverted to the defaults. Probably clearing NVRAM and then setting up manually from scratch would be the best thing to do. Then you need to find out why it restarts. I have found in the past that connection storms, often from a mobile phone, can be one cause. Viruses running processes on a PC sending thousands of connections to the internet can be another. Then there's hardware failure, power supply failure, brownouts can cause NVRAM configuration to become corrupted.
