Re: Very close to returning my 2nd BT Whole Home WiFi...

Glad that this seems to be working for all - remember to boost my rating

 

@Dan-O  Is this steering necessary ? as the devices themselves seem to be able to switch discs as required

 

Also iPads and Macbooks have always had issues with wifi connectivity where as iPhones have seemed stable.

@Steve59

 

Most modern devices are capable of moving between discs by themselves. Some devices are sticky and connect to a particular access point.

 

It depends on whether they support the 802.11v standard for band transition as this will enable devices to move seamlessly with no interruption.

I've also applied the workaround to disable steering and mailed support

Applied workaround seems to work as google home now not dropping out. Only downside it takes longer for my devices to switch between disks when moving around house. Hopefully BT will provide a software update soon.

Try powering the disks off and back on. It worked for me.

I've done the changes and yes, the Google home devices are remaining connected. However mobile devices are struggling to change between discs and it causes weak signal issues as the phones don't switch when they should.
