phone wifi shuts down entire network

    I have a new droid 4 and a weird problem. Whenever I try to turn on wireless on the phone it causes the whole network to crash.

    It finds the network, and I enter the password, but when I try to connect to it the entire network will just start to repeatedly shutdown and restart itself every second. It's not just on the phone either. The internet becomes inaccessible on all computers, wired or wireless. On my desktop the network status icon keeps switching between the red X and the yellow exclamation point, without ever becoming actually usable.

    As soon as I turn wireless off on the phone again it returns to normal and the network is just fine and stable.

    Any ideas on what is wrong and can be done to fix it?

    Sell it. If your phone came with the ability to crash a whole network, then some hacker would love to buy it off you.
