I have a pair of AC1750 B1 routers connected with Ethernet in an AiMesh network with wireless backhaul disabled. A couple of days ago the one that is the node was not providing WiFi. The WiFi light was flickering normally but it wasn't transmitting. The primary was fine. I rebooted the node several times and even tried a spare 1750 B1 but there was still no WiFi. Then I rebooted the primary node and when it was back online I had WiFi from the node. It hasn't happened again. Any ideas on what happened?

It's called a glitch. Unless it happens with a given set of steps, nobody can know.

The one time I lost AC86U WiFi after a firmware update, I reflashed the firmware and started over.

Thank you all for your replies. I do have a daily reboot scheduled at 5am so it happened after (or as a result of) that. The auto-reboot the next morning didn't fix it. It wasn't till I pulled the plug the next day that it worked, so it needed a cold reboot. Unless it happens again I'll go with "glitch" and forget about it. I can easily set up a daily cold reboot with a an X10 module (yes I still use them!) if I need to do that instead.
