The next version of firmware is currently being tested but as yet we do not have a date for when it will be available as a Beta Release, but as soon as we have a date for it we will announce it on the forum.
These white premium discs defiantly have an issue when a device has its line lease renewed. Well defiantly for me with R7800 running DD-WRT.
I reported the issue and work around with the main primary disc reboots, caused by the line lease being renewed to the dics and sending a reboot command on the odd occasion.
Well now i have discovered the echoshow 5 in our bedroom wakes up from display off command during the night and wakes us due to the same issue.

I can and have fixed the issue by giving the device an infinite lease but i hope this is being addressed in the next beta release.
I would like to add: This is defiantly NOT a DD-WRT or router issue its a premium disc issue because this does not happen with your BTWH1 system!
Had issues yesterday, some devices kept saying wrong password and wouldn't connect while other devices connected, had to factory reset all disc's in the end, found 1 disc would not factory reset (came back up with the stored settings even though it went through the reset process) so assume that was the disc causing the problem.
These premium disc are not in the same league as BT original ac2600 versions, i am sorry to say I wished i had never purchased these!
for some reason web and app shows no connected devices on main disc but router displays them as normal. Devices from all over the house are connected to the downstairs disc. Devices can be 2 meters away from disc but get connected to disc on another floor. My printer reports weak signal and its in the same room as the disc!! its crazy. Topology might as well be cosmology...
Is there any update/expected release date for the next firmware as quite frankly the current firmware on my wifi6 discs is not fit for purpose, the discs seem to lose connection every day and I wish i had never "upgraded" from the original wholehome system which was so much more stable. How they can still sell these discs in this unstable state is unbelievable
