My Pi sometimes loses its connection to my network for no reason I can see, and comes back, again, also with no reason I can see. Its dropout lasts for days. I'm in a 2 week (so far) dropout now. It happens whether I use WiFi or Ethernet. Typically, I end up trying and after about 30 seconds I get a message saying no response/timed out. Other devices on the network include a Windows desktop, and a few Androids. All the Windows, Android, and and iPhone devices I've tried connect immediately and stay that way. Help.

  • ... just wanted to thank @Seamus for posting reasons behind closing and/or down voting. It is a good habit that should benefit this and other stackexchange web sites where this behavior is repeated. stretch, it is very common on stackexchange web sites for the OP to reword their questions based on comments received.

  • What are the settings on your DHCP server? Are all devices set up to use the DHCP server to obtain IP addresses? Are you using a fresh Raspberry Pi Linux OS (i.e. you have not altered it in any way since you created the SDCard)?
