    I would power cycle everything on your network. Shut everything off, printers, game consoles, tvs, etc. Whatever connects to your home network shut it down, including the router and modem. Leave it off for a few minutes, then one device at a time, starting with the modem, turn them on. Wait for each one to be connected, before adding a device. After the modem, do the router. Then start with the computers and devices.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
