  @flai54 Looks like I'm going to be returning the Deco XE75 because it's picking channel 2 for the 2.4 GHz band, which overlaps at the end with my next door neighbor's channel 6. Channel 1 has no competition or overlap with anyone around, but without either better algorithms or the ability to manually change channels, my 2.4 GHz locked devices are occasionally dropping on and off the network.

 

From loving this product to now being 100% let down & having to start acquiring a new mesh router again, this was not the Friday night surprise I needed.

 

A soon former customer,

  @Carl Switching channels breaks connectivity for some smart devices (Wyze cameras in particular). We need an IOT setting for 2.4ghz where the channel selection is locked.

That is actually being pushed and already available in some cases, for example the Deco XE200 has an IOT network when IOT devices are split from the main network but you can limit it to a single band.

  @Carl Unfortunately my new wifi setup is 2 x XE75 Pro and 1 XE75. If I'm returning gear, it will all go back. I have a temporary workaround for the IOT issue - i'm using my old ASUS routers as APs strictly for my IOT devices. My hope is that the IOT feature will be added to the XE75 devices and i can get rid of the ASUS gear.

It should be getting added, but I can't say when.
