Model: Deco M4  
Hardware Version: V4
Firmware Version: 1.0.2

i have bought a three decos and have been running them in wi-fi router mode, they keep disconnecting from each other ( i have seen another Thread  where this same issue is occurring but my decos are not restarting they are just on ) i bought them three month back and its been hell since week 2 as i have to manually restart them  when they disconnect and this happens every 2 to 3 hours it would be good if someone told me how to fix it

When your Satellite Deco M4s are connected, check their Signal Source in Deco app, for each Satellite. Example:

 

 

What does it show for your Satellites?

You could also change a different unit as the main Deco in case the old main M4 failed:

How to Setup the Satellite Deco to be the Main Deco?

By the way, I like Pokemon toolaugh

I tried that and switched between all three deco same result. I am now having to resort to it as an access point which the other router is not able to support properly as it is limited to 80 Mbps and nice (pokemon rocks)

This does not look right. For Deco M4 it should be like in my example:

 

 

It might be possible, Main Deco has defective hardware. If you swapped Main Deco with another Deco node and nothing changed on Satellites, you might have defective set.

Yes, you should return them. Deco M4 is dual band, under normal conditions you should expect to see both 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands under Signal Source. 

 

If you are returning them and not just exchanging, it would make sense to check different seller and/or different Deco model. It might be possible the place you've got these from has a whole shipment of defective Deco M4 devices.
