Another bad remote?

Hello, new to the board and I'm having a problem again with my remote for my Hopper receiver.
This is the second remote in the past month and a half that's giving me problems.
Everything was working great until today, my wifi for some weird reason shut down and took like 20 minutes to reboot itself and when it came back on my remote stopped working on my hopper receiver. It's the newer style remote with the voice button. The same thing happened a month and a half ago. Is this just coincidence or is the receiver interfering with my wifi?

What is not working with the remotes. If you’re having internet issues, the voice features will likely be affected.

I have to press a button any button more than 3 times for the receiver to accept the command. So if I want the guide on my screen I have to press it 3 or more times for it to pop up on my screen.

Take the remote antenna off, and just make sure there is a clean connection there and put it back on.
