Not exactly sure why it "clobbered" your wireless network, but you're
using scp wrong. You don't need to ssh into a machine, then scp from
there back to the machine you're connected from. You just use scp
from the client machine:
scp <user>@<host>:/path/to/file <local_destination>
Obviously replace all that with appropriate information, but there's
no need to ssh to a machine, then scp back. Just scp from the
client. :) It might work better that way.
If you're more familiar with ftp, you could always use sftp too... it
works like ftp (command-wise), but does all its magic over an ssh
connection. Again, no need to ssh into the host machine first.
