    Long Term WiFi Issues

    Hi all,
    I am having a strange issue when trying to establish and stay connected to a WiFi connection for extended periods of time, I am using my microPC as a host for a couple of tasks so it needs to stay powered on and remotely accessible for extended periods.

    However I have noticed an odd issue that I have not been able to find an acceptable solution for. After the PC has been on and connected to the network for upwards of a day (it is a little hard to track down the exact time of disconnect), the network connection will be lost and unable to be restored.

    Using the correct PW will attempt to connect for a period before returning "Something has changed since you last connected". I have not been able to find any reference to this response anywhere (although maybe my google-fu is just weak). So any ideas on how to resolve the problem or possible reasons for this issue?

    I am 90% certain that it is the PC rather then the router as I am still able to connect to the router with other devices and they operate as expected. The problem can be solved by restarting the computer which I have been doing on a 24hr schedule to try and avoid this issue. But if there was another solution then I would be quite interested to find it.

    TLDR: After connected to WiFi network for long period disconnects and presents with "changed since last connected message. Can be fixed by restart, is there another solution?
