Deco M5 Etherne connection unstable / intermittent
In the last week my ethernet connection to my Main deco M5 has pretty much stopped working. 2-4 times a day my computer stops while the networks switches to/from wi-fi/ethernet. Some of my devices are connected only via ethernet. 95% of the day I am connected via wii-fi
My connection: - Setup has been working for about 5 years
ISP Fiber router ====> Deco M5 =====> Powered 8 port ethernet switch =====> Devices (my computer, NAS drive, Nvidia Shield, Smarthings Hub)
| ====== > wifi devices
So my NAS drive is unavailable, Shield connects via wi-fi and Smartthings hub is offline and I have lost control of all my security devices
My Wifi works fine.
I switched out the main Deco for another unused one (after updating the firmware on it) and tried that and besides screwing with all the connections of my wifi home security devices, it did not seem to fix the problem so I went back to the original M5 as my main router.
I plugged a couple of my devices directly into the Main M5 and no ethernet.
Tried a different cable.
I have rebooted everything including the hubs and ISP router multiple times
Sometimes on a complete network reboot, the ethernet starts to function again for a while...sometimes a few minutes, the other day it worked all night and half the next day.
IPTV is not enabled and never has been.
I do recall updating firmware recently
