My experience seems to be getting worse with each firmware release.
Before v1.02.04 build10 I noticed that the WholeHome was repeatdly sending the router unrequired DNS requests for "localhost" several times a second. Despite this taking up resource on the router by having to reply all the time, the overall performance of the WholeHome WiFi was pretty good. I didn't have any drop outs or cause to reboot the system.
Upgrading to v1.02.04 build10 resolved the rampant DNS issue, but introduced an instability that required me to reboot the complete system about once every two weeks. Discs would just go offline or report that there was no internet available (even though wired devices were using the internet fine).
After waiting a few days to see what peoples experience of v1.02.05 build 01 was like I noted that the comments seem to be that it was no worse than the previous firmware and in some instances it had improved speed and resilience. So three days ago I bit the bullet and upgraded and now wish I hadn't. I don't seem to go any longer than 10 hours without discs dropping out and requiring reboots.
When trouble occurs it does seem to be the wifi backhaul that is failing, as devices connected to the "master" disc plugged into the router are generally OK, but devices connected to the "remote" discs only see that disc as being operational and all the other discs (and the internet) is offline.
What I've not done yet is to fiddle with the steering options which is something I'll try over the weekend. But if that doesn't work I fear Amazon are going to get another return.
I’ve tweaked nothing on my 5 disc system.
Previous to this update my original 3 disc set. worked fine, however the addition of any other disc outside of the original 3 disk set caused it to regularly fall over. As soon as the new FW was available I installed it, was stable for a few days on the original 3 disc set, then introduced the problematic 4th disc and it was still stable so I introduced my 5th disc and it’s been rock solid since.
Steve does your's still hand off seamlessly between each disc with ap steering off? Have you ever noticed it still connected to a disc further away.?
I have no issues with any products moving from disc to disc on their own, my 4 discs are all on the downstairs of the property as wifi travels vertically better than horizontally so getting wifi upstairs is no problem
Guys can someone detail how you turn AP stearing off
and what should AP steering do and whats the downside of switching it off
