Hi Caribiner23

One of my customers have a 3 unit wifi sitting behind their ISP router. The units are:

- one Airport Extreme (latest/model A1521 with latest sw versions) running as bridge/master,
- one Airport Extreme and one Express running as extenders

Periodically they experience that one of the units 'turns yellow' in Airport Utillity and no internet. I initially tried to restart the unit in question but found that the only thing that helped were to restart the master - Even if it were showing up as 'ok/green'. At one occasion I even had to restart the ISP router to get them airborne.

The ISP router is an old Netopia 3347 v.1 from 2005 (!). The incoming line to the router always tests ok and a directly cabled internal info-tv system + surveillance system also works fine. It is only the wifi. I am as you may realize not deeply 'net-knowledged' but to me it seems that the 'handshaking' between the Netopia and the bridge some time hangs.
