My Deco environment setup
DECO M5 v2 Firmware: 1.5.1
M4R Firmware:1.4.3 connect via gigabit ethernet cable backhaul to M5 Main
W2400 Firmware:1.4.3 connected via wireless to M5 Main
Two M3W Firwamre 1.0.6
Since upgrading to the newest M4 and M5 firmware releases, both the Satillite and Client devices will randomly disconnect and receive poor bandwidth.
This impacts all client devices- IPHONE 11, Samusung S10, 2020 Amazon Fire Tablet, HP and Dell Laptops. The signal strength on all devices are full bars, but poor or stall loading of internet sites and applications.
I have to consistantly disconnect and reconnect to the network to load apps and resolve internet pages. If the satillite devices loose connection I need to reboot the enitre network, Reboot the main, then all the satillites at the same time to restore stability to the network.
The network optimization feature reports the network is perfect 99% of the time.
Connecting my laptop via ethernet cable the connection is great, the issue is solely with the wireless connection.
All decos are more 40' plus apart and spread out over 3 floors. I have a spare M5 and W2400 used for testing.
I swapped out the main M5 with the Spare M5- no change
Swapped out the M5 with a spare w2400 and set the M4R as the main Deco- No change
Removed the w2400- No change
Removed the w2400 and MR4 - No change
Moved the Decos into different locations- No change
Setup the M5 by itself, no Deco AP Satillites - No change.
Turned off Fast Roaming- No Change
This all started after the recent firmware update to the M4, W2400. Then updating the M5 to the most recent firmware seemed to make it worse.
