Are the wifi discs still under active development?
I have noticed two problems with the premium discs, but no releases of fixes since October last year:
Although there is no configuration option for this in the webUI, I have noticed if my DHCP server is offline, the master premium wifi DISC starts running it's own DHCP server. A rougue DHCP server on a network is incredibly disruptive...
The wifi premium discs seem to, on occasion, stop forwarding DNS requests. This generally resolves eventually, but it is frustrating. If I put the discs themselves onto static IPs rather than DHCP, they seem to block all DNS queries entirely....
...also worth noting:
The problems above are exacerbated by the fact the the discs can not, with the current firmware, be used in static IP mode - as when I do this, DNS on the entire network stops working for reasons not fully understood.
I can use them with dynamic addresses, but that means that if the main DHCP server ever goes down, so does the wifi, which is not ideal
I wonder about freeMESH - though that seems to be US only...
I tried setting a static IP on my units last night. This failed - with the units repeatedly reverting to DHCP.
I did, after multiple rattempts, maage to get one unit onto a static IP....however any DNS requests from a connected device were still being sent to the old DHCP lease address of the unit, which obviously did not respond....so something very screwy going on
Couldn't find a support desk email, so ended up raising a BT complaint ticket in the hope they can direct the call in the right direction!
