A while back I bought a 3 pack of P7 for my home in Spain. These were put into access point mode with one in living room connected to main ISP router via ethernet, 1 in basement and 1 on 1st floor - no distance greater than 10 metres between slaves and main deco, and worked fine for a while.
Recently i noticed the unit on the first floor was intermittently dropping signal - swapping units didnt fix the issue, nor did setting up the slave closer to the main deco then moving to a further point away.
I decided to expand range and bought 3x P9s. Reset the entire network with P9 wired to router, P9 in hallway (base of the stairs), and p9 on first floor. P7s are 1 in basement (base of stairs), 1 on 1st floor landing (top of stairs) and 1 on 2nd floor office space (top of stairs).
Unless you are in the living room, connected to the main deco, the connection is very unreliable with constant cut outs. The slave decos intermittently cut out, the only pattern being a drop of internet signal at around midnight each night.
I have tried rotating the decos, with no luck. I have 6 units covering a 280m2 home, so range should not be an issue here. The app does not seem to be able to keep up with the connectivity of the decos, sometimes saying working OK when im standing next to a red flashing unit, other times saying the deco is offline with the indicator green. I can't fesabily move the units any closer to each other either, there aren't enough plugs in the house.
From looking at the forums i can see people with similar issues who have just been getting the same 'restart and move closer' advice. Are these products fit for purpose, or has it been a waste of £400?
Some proper tech help would be appreciated here
