Wifi premium disc - bugs

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....

Another plea for some reassurance and an update.  Dan, please!

...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'm sorry to say this buddy but "Welcome to a world of hurt" BT have been awful at supporting this product! If you can get out I would suggest you do so asap!

I wonder about freeMESH - though that seems to be US only...

Re: Wifi premium disc - bugs

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 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!
