KL130 won't respond to pings, blinks, responds to 2-3 pings, rinse, repeat
Greetings, first post.
I have a new KL130, fresh out of the box, that will not remain pingable on my network. It will respond to 2-3 pings, then go unresponsive for ~30s, then the lamp will blink, and a few seconds later it will respond to 2-3 pings, then go unresponsive again.
I've done the 10x power cycle reset at least five times now, then gone through the setup. No improvement.
I have four more of these smart bulbs, no problems there. I have around 16 other Kasa wall switches, plugs, and outdoor plugs. No problems with any of them other than this one KL130.
It's in a room with three smart plugs, a smart switch, and two other KL130s. The WAP is a Ubiquiti UAP 2.4Ghz in low-power mode, about 10' from the bulb. There's a dedicated SSID for the smart devices in this room. I've tried a different SSID on another WAP (a UAP-AC-LR). No difference.
I've tried a different light fixture. I've tried a different electrical circuit in a different room. No joy.
There are plenty of available IP addresses in the DHCP pool. I've tried reserving a static IP for this lamp, but it didn't help. I've since removed the static mapping.
My firewall reports that nothing is being blocked from or to the lamp's IP address and the Internet. My home network is flat.
Did I mention that it's the second KL130 that's doing this, fresh out of the box? Both from Amazon/Amazon, purchased separately, within the last 10 days.
Since there are two KL130s with the same problem, it could point toward a problem on my side, but remember, all of my other Kasa devices - including four other KL130s - are working perfectly.
I'm out of ideas and I've spent two long hours on a $15 smart bulb. I've got a KL125 on the way to see if I have better luck with it. Sadly, if both of these KL130s are somehow defective, and that's a long shot indeed, I can only return one of them because one of the cartons went out in the wheelie bin yesterday.
Does anyone know what could be the problem here? Thank you --
