Customer Question

I have just purchased a Canon MX925 All-in-one Printer and have installed it with a wireless connections through a BT Infinity Hub to two computers and an iPad.
Printing after initial installation was OK, but on subsequent use of the printer (i.e. the next day), I have had to 'Restart' the BT Hub.
I assume this is not normal, so can you tell me if there is a problem with the printer, hub or my computer and if it can be fixed
