I have 2 AC1750's set up as access points. They've served well for years. Ever since I added many SmartLife smart switches to the house, the routers periodically become wirelessly unresponsive. They require rebooting to become responsive again. By unresponsive, I mean devices connect but have no network access.

I have 23 switches, 8 other wireless devices, plus phones.

Can these routers get overloaded with devices? Adding the smart devices & router failure could be coincidence, but doubtful.
