Model: Deco M4  
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version: 1.1.0 Build 20190629 Rel. 45372

Hi,

 

For some time now, my wifi is getting worse and worse. If I will move my laptop for more than a few meters apart from the router (basically, another room), the connection becomes interrupted very often. I have checked with some tool on mobile phone, what is the channel used by my Deco, and it seems like its overwhelmed by another network. Please look at a graph below, red (left) signal strength on channel 36 is the one that contains my network ("Nie mamy Wi-Fi") and some other, whose signal is stronger. 

 

I know that Deco is trying to select the best channel to work with, but man, it is not going well. Is there any way to force M4 to use different channel?

Deco version is EU, hardware version is 1.0, firmware is 1.1.0 Build 20190629 Rel. 45372

 

To be honest, I think of selling it and buying something that will more fit my needs.

 

Best regards,

Pawel.

Ok, so to anyone who might find this topic and issue in future, I will leave here my solution:

 

Buy some other hardware.

 

Those routers are made for someone who knows nothing about technology. If you have basics, just go and buy something else, as Deco will not meet your needs.

So, I assume that this is not possible and will not be possible in nearest future?
