EAP Mesh causing EAP to stop operating in 5GHz spectrum
I have this issue I need to solve.
I have two devices establish a mesh connection, but then one of them goes offline - the Uplink EAP that stays online outright stops operating in 5GHz spectrum.
With band steering it makes that EAP a black hole for all 5GHz devices around it.
The UI doesn't even tell you what devices are in the mesh network at that point, the only way to know it is when there's an error while trying to run a 5GHz scan on the EAP.
Right now the only solution that works is to disable Mesh network in Site Settings altogether and restart the mesh EAPs.
Are there any mitigation solutions?
If you wish to reproduce:
Enable Band steering
Enable Mesh network and fallback
Disconnect one EAP from the wired network and let it fallback to mesh
Take note which EAPs formed the mesh
Shut down the unwired EAP (from step 3)
Try to connect to the EAP that established the mesh network, that is still online
