My Deco M3W don't have a view like this with "Signal Source" or "Connected Clients".  The view merely states Deco Health Check Deco is working well.  Firmware version 1.0.6 Build 20201019 Rel. 22614.  How can I tell which clients have connected to which of my M3W?  How can I tell the signal strength of the source unit on these?
