  @David-TP Hi David,

 

I completely wiped the deco's config and reinstalled and for now it seems stable. The only issue I still have is that the parental controls don't work anymore:

 

I allow someone to use internet for 3 hours per day, and everyday I have to reset this manually. Somehow the counters think there has already been 3 hours of activity while the device was shut down (completely no power so wasn't sleeping either). When I click the insights button and show history, is only shos some history from the day before. This seems to still be a bug ...

Thanks for your reply. Here is my topology. It has been little bit better, when switched off "Smart DHCP" like others have been reported here as well. So Mesh is via Ethernet.

There has not been issues with my ISP.

Does this beta firmware  Deco M5-1.6.0 build 20220810 has bug fixes other than the parent control one?

Update to my previous post it started doing it again. The garage AP is saying it is disconnected from the rest of the APs, even though it has a green light, and it is now wired to the Main AP with Ethernet backhaul (doesn't matter if it is wired or wireless same results)  and I can access it via the web browser using its IP address. Rebooting it didn't fix it this time.

  @TP-Link It was one unit that the Deco app and when you logged into the main unit via web browser would show as disconnected from the rest of the deco m5's. Didn't matter if it had was Ethernet backhaul or \Wireless backhaul.  So if you tried to reboot all your M5's at once it wouldn't be rebooted because the app doesn't see it as online. Hard rebooting it didn't do anything for it either  

 

I did find a solution, however, though I am monitoring it to see how long it will work.   What I did was find the IP address of the one out M5, and logged into it via a web browser hook up to Ethernet back haul.   I used the Deco M5 app on my iPad and rebooted all the Deco M5's at once and rebooted the one that wouldn't connect to the others at the same time via the login from the web browser. Thus they were all rebooting within a few seconds of each other.   When they all came back online they could all see each other.  It's been that way for about 24hrs now.  I will continue to monitor it.  The Garage Deco M5 was the one losing contact with the rest of the units.  The office and Family room are Ethernet back haul and the garage, Rec room, Rec room Alarm are all wireless back haul.

Following up on this. Still rebooting once every day in order to mitigate issues and sometimes I have to physically kill power to all decos and perform a hard reboot otherwise satellites won't operate correctly despite being hardwired.

  @David-TP the version is still 1.6.0, which is already the last stable.

Will there be a new release for these fixes, 1.6.1 for example?

I am surprised to see a new beta for the version already considered as stable.

I installed this latest beta earlier today but already once wifi connection dropped. Needed to restart main Deco. Interesting, that this root cause hasn't been found or has it?
