    RT-AC88U sometimes does not allow for my PC to connect to the network

    I've started having some weird things happen with my network a couple months ago. Sometimes when I get home, and turn on my PC, it will show that it does not have internet connection.

    My PC (A) and PS4 (B) sit on a table across the room. When the above happens, both devices don't have network connection. They are connected to a small 5 port switcher. That switcher is connected to the RT_AC88U. All that is a wired connection. I have several other devices that are directly connected to the router via network cable. Those devices seem to be working normally.

    I'll try to login to my router with my PC and it acts as if the cable is disconnected. The workaround is to ....

    1. Turn off my RT-AC88U.
    2. Disconnect all the network cables in back. I'm using 6 of the 8 wired ports in back.
    3. Leave the cable that goes to my PC and PS4 connected. That in turn goes to a small 5 port switcher. Which connects to my PC and PS4.
    4. Turn on the RT-AC88U.
    5. The RT-AC88U will boot up.
    6. Restart computer/or log out computer then back on. Then my PC can connect to the router and internet normally.
    7. I plug back in the rest of the network cables in back. All the other devices connect normally.
    8. All is fine for now.

    But if I leave for the day. Then this issue may occur again.

    Otherwise my internet connection, through my network works great.

    Any suggestions as to how to fix this?
