    problems with Wi-Fi

    My Touch recently keeps dropping from the Wi-Fi network. When I attempt to reconnect, it will discover the SSID, but it will not reconnect. I get the failed message. After power off and on, or a factory reset the Wifi will reconnect again. The behavior is very similar to the wifi6 interference problem with the SB Radio, which I do suffer from. However, I have not had a problem with the Touch Wifi until recently.

    Some suggest perhaps the power supply is failing, as it is the original. Unfortunately, I do not have a second Touch power supply to give it a test.

    If it is the Wifi that is failing, I suppose I could get a Wifi to ethernet bridge to bypass the internal wifi.

    Any suggestions to fix the problem?

    if the PSU is in slow failure mode you can replace it with something like this https://www.amazon.com/MyVolts-adapt...0GQVG8Q2&psc=1

    The WiFi card in the Touch may not be compatible with more recent WiFi setups, so a bridging device and wiring the Touch to that would fix the problem.

    As a test, once I got the Touch connected to my Wi-Fi I left it on a radio station to stream overnight. It has been running for 9.5 hours.
    Assuming the Touch uses more power while operating than in standby mode, I am going to conclude it likely means the power supply is okay.

    Past observations it appears while in standby mode, the Wi-Fi will disconnect after a perhaps few hours, but I really don't know because I am not watching it.

    strange behavior.

    For some unknown reason, but Touch is remaining connected to the Wifi. I did not do anything, it started working again on its own.
