Re: Premium & Whole Home Wi-Fi 6 SGAB/C208426 Early Adopter Release now live

Hi @johnbusby ,

I was thinking about your master disc re-election problem crash.  I think that I’ve inadvertently avoided this happening on my setup and thus not falling victim to the same issue you reported.  

I have only one disc connected to the router, this one is always the master, it never changes.  I’ve chained a small gigabit switch into the second port of this disc, and the remaining discs into this switch.  In effect therefore I have a dedicated backhaul switch.  My other wired devices all connect into a different switch via the router and are completely separate from the Wi-Fi one.   I’ve also tried daisy chaining the discs together as a backhaul instead of using the switch, this also prevents master re-election and appears to work.

I’m thinking that your configuration probably has the discs all on an equal footing, connected into the router.  Out of interest could you confirm please.  I fully agree that the firmware doing a re-election shouldn’t cause such problems, and BT really need to squash this bug if it’s the cause.  Anyhow, I hope this may assist if a reconfiguration of cables is possible in your case.  In any case I’d be interested to hear if you get anywhere resolving this.

My premium set were most stable using wireless back haul and only 1 disc connected to LAN, defiantly more system crashes using Ethernet BH to multiple nodes as previously reported.  Never daisy chained my system, LAN always fed from switches.
