Deco X55 Satellite units flashing red
I've seen a number of threads on this, but nothing definitive about what's going on and why.
I've got a relatively new Deco X55 system, with 2 satellites. The satellites are both flashing red, with occasional bounces back to a solid green. However they never stay on the green, they keep going back to the flashing red. When first installed, they went green for quite a while, a couple of weeks or so, but now both have gone into flashing red mode. The master is
The App states that all the satellites are active, and have clients attached. According to the app, I'm typing this while connected to one of the satellites right now.
The app shows that each satellite has an IP address.
I've tried moving one of the satellites closer to the master. Put it in the same room, and about 7 feet away. No effect. I reset one of them while it was close to the master, and added it back into the network. Same issue.
If I unplug one of the units, the app will show that the unit is not connected, until it's plugged back in and rebooted.
Can somebody at TP-Link please give a reason for what's going on here? At the very least, the flashing red lights are annoying and distracting. Or maybe provide a firmware fix? Looks like the last software update was in April.
Right now the LED's are effectively worthless for determining network state.
