HS105 units don't auto-reconnect after losing WiFi connection
I have four HS105 units and one HS107. Some of the HS105s very frequently lose their connection with the WiFi. Mostly it is the two which are in a different room than my router, but sometimes even the ones in the same room as the router lose connection. In fact, right now all four of the HS105 have lost connection; only the HS107 is online.
I can understand them losing connection from time to time but I would think they would automatically try to receonnect with the router. They don't do that; once the connection is lost they don't reconnect by themselves. If I unplug the Smart Plug and plug it in again, it joins the network just fine. I have to do this about every other day.
The HS105 are all at firmware version 1.5.1, hardware version 1.0. The one which is the furthest away from the router shows a signal strength around -64 dBm.
Is there any way to make these devices auto reconnect with the router?
So far, I haven't had this problem with the HS107. It is hardware version 1.0 and firmware 1.0.5. I can't find signal strength for the HS107 in the app.
RESOLUTION: I'm putting my resolution here so you don't have to read through the whole thread to find out what happened.
On or about 2019-01-16 I received beta firmware version 1.5.3 for the HS105s. Since installing that I have not experienced this problem. I have only occasionally seen the plugs lose connection since then, but they do auto-reconnect now. So at least for me the auto-reconnect problem was fixed by firmware 1.5.3.
BTW, my HS105 units are now running firmware 1.5.4.
