Hi,

A very weird scenario. I have a wifi router with broadband connection with network name 'Excelsior'. We connect 8-12 devices to it.
On some days my devices can't discover the wifi network ie in the list Excelsior doesn't show up even on restarting the router and laptops.

I have a motorola mobile phone, I use it to create a hotspot with name 'wifi_hotspot'. This network is discovered on all devices and devices are able to connect to it.
And weird part is after connecting to wifi_hotspot the network 'Excelsior' becomes discovered. And we are able to connect to it.

Weirder part is if I use any other mobile device to create a mobile hotspot, and then connect to it from laptops. Excelsior is still not discoverable!

Any clue on how to understand this thing will help.

Thanks
