I have read this 'settle down for a couple of days' many times, what is actually supposed to happen during this time, and how do you know if it is 'settling down'? Does it take 2 days for the system to restart correctly, ie connect a device to the stongest signal? If there is a powercut, or a disc has to be restarted manually, does it take another 2 days, or does this '2 days to settle down' only happen after a firmware upgrade?
Reason I ask, is I was told by BT helpdesk to turn off the furthest disc when a device is connecting that should be connecting to the closest. When I turn the disc back on, do I have to wait 2 days before the system has finished its settling down?
Hi @craigski , I've responded to your other thread about your problem with the LG TV. Have a look first.
Re: your question on settling down, this is usually only needed after an upgrade or factory reset; not a power cut. Or also if you switch off just one disc as the system then need to re-learn that the new disc is now back and re-learn the best layout. 2 days is a maximum; it's usually much quicker.
After a lot of messing I might be narrowing the issues down a bit
I tried a reset, update to latest version, went through the disc add process, but I was still getting the same issue. I then did another reset and setup all discs to build 12. Seems more stable, but still the same slow internet issue
Around the same time, I bought a new phone, motorola G7 running android Pie (9). I still have my previous Hauwei P8 lite 2017 ( Android 7 Nougat) that there was no issue with previously. Turning off wifi on the android phones (both are b,n,g so not 5ghz) and my speed returned using my windows laptop for the speed test. Turn either phone on, after a little while, the speed drops significantly to a crawl on the laptop, and next to nothing on the phones
I tried turning on compatibility mode, and chose channel 6 on 2.4ghz, and the hauwei phone now works fine, download speeds over 40, and while the Hauwei is connected, the laptop also has good speed, near 50
BUT - if I connect my android pie Moto G7, the whole system grinds to a halt.
I didn't have this issue with the Hauwei before the update, and once the issue started, it remains even with a rollback to build 12. I cant comment on the G7 android 9 as the phone came around the same time as I updated the BTWH
Any suggestions for this G7 / Android 9 issue?
Rolling back to Build 12 seems to have fixed some issues, changing my new phone to a higher spec dual band version seems to have fixed others, so just going to give it a few days, then will report back
The loss of wifi on iPhones & iPads seems to occur predominantly when a device is transferring discs when walking around. It is either lost completely and the wifi needs to be cycled in the device settings or it flicks about every second between 4G and wifi.
I am getting it on android devices as well. Disappointing considering I had months without issues on previous updates (same wifi devices)
