Model: Deco M5
Hardware Version: V1
Firmware Version:

 

I finally found the cause of instability in my network: seems that you cannot mix V1 and V2 in one network.

Found multiple people also have this issue.

Note that i tried a possible combinations of locations etc. All the time conclusion is: as soon as you remove V2 from the network (all other devices V1), all is super stable.

As soon as you add a V2 device, network becomes unstable.

 

 

Is there is solution in the works ? Note that nowehere it is mentioned you cannot mix multiple hardware versions. Which means that people might be buying deco's that are not fully compatible with their current setup.

The v1 and v2 differ in that the v1 has a USB-C power connector, the v2 uses the typical circular power plug. Do you only have one v2? Rather then being v2, it sounds like the device itself may be the cause of the network connectivity, especially how you can replicate it.
