There are 3 GWN7610, 1 POE and 2 Mesh in my 2 storey home. I have tried Powerline, but I don’t think it made any difference.
For the last 4-5 years I have been using a Ubiquiti ERL3, but have changed to an ERX and I don’t think there has been any improvement. I am on a 100 Down / 20 Up Fibre Plan.
I have 5 SSID
- xxx2.4 and 5
My devices don’t seem to like 5GHZ only or Dual Band. Sometimes i.e. occasionally, they will connect and then drop a short while later (could be 1 minute or 5 minutes). My thoughts are my media streaming devices e.g. FireTV’s, Echos, fair better than my laptops. I have tried Windows 10 Network Reset multiple times across different laptops (all Windows 10 Pro). What is consistent is the 2.4 GHZ SSID only is the one that seems to fair the best (not sure, whether it has ever disconnected).
This post is being written on xxx2.4 because xxx5 and xxx2.4 and 5 will not connect. This laptop is a Generation 10 Dell Inspiron and exactly 12 months old. The connection message is invariably ‘No internet, secured’. BUT they can connect to 5GHZ occasionally, but not reliably.
Whilst writing this on 2.4GHZ, I have tried my Dual Band SSID and my 5GHZ SSID. Both will not connect. To post this I have connected back to 2.4 GHZ and it was very quick to connect.
Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.
