    Try using a different node as the gateway. Maybe that will help. It might also be a good idea to turn off all interfering devices around your nodes.

    My ISP also requires that I use their router between my modem and Deco, but I'm using the Deco in router mode only, with most functionality of the ISP router turned off (and no devices connected to...

    If there is no problem with devices connected to a cable, then yes, I'm guessing that something is preventing your devices from roaming adequately. As for a fix, I can't say, but you could try...

    If you mean [Modem] (ethernet) Deco 1 (ethernet) Deco 2 (ethernet) Computer, then yes, it is possible. That is actually my current setup and it works wonderfully.

    You should be able to just unplug everything, move it around, and plug it back in no problem. However, if you run into problems, just delete the network and create a new one with the same...

    Does this setup work for you, with the nodes running behind separate switches like in the diagram provided? My current understanding of Deco AP mode is that this wouldn't work...

    You could try a few things. Play with the QOS settings, and see if that helps. Also try turning off all but the gateway node and see if the problem still exists (maybe interference is causing a...

    I would suggest moving it closer and seeing if the disconnect still happens. If so, then it is not about signal strength. Also try connecting with ethernet at your desired location and see if that...

    The FAQ states this: "The main Deco (first one connect to the network) will work in Router mode by default after setup,the you can switch the working mode into AP mode as need. The other two Deco...

    I don't know if my own experiences apply, but I had IPv4/6 problems with my ISP that caused my speeds to be reduced by about 30% as well. It might be worth looking into to see if your ISP uses IPv4/6...

    Do you mean connectivity between your devices and Deco, or internet connectivity between Deco and the web? It might be helpful to know your setup and what exactly is happening.

    Probably just a bug with the settings. Try deleting your network and setting it back up again from scratch (wifi first, then connect ethernet).

    That is one person's opinion, obviously, but I'm very happy with my Deco system. My ISP has very specific IPv4/6 requirements that caused me problems at first, but all is running smoothly now. Very...

    Yes, you should configure everything using only WiFi at first, and then connect ethernet. It took me a couple of tries to get it to switch from wifi to ethernet, so test your speed on a device...

    Please provide a map of your setup. I'm wondering why your nodes (DeadM5) are showing up in your connected devices list, whereas mine only shows the end terminals.)

    I had similar problems that I thought was due to poor service from my ISP (since everything showed as working fine). The cause turned out to be a problem with IPv6 connectivity. I don't know if it...

    Your frustration is understandable. However, the Deco is marketed as a wifi mesh system where each node connects to the next wirelessly. If the nodes are not in range, you will not be able to connect...

    That does clarify things. I think the problem is that you are running a switch between the first AP and the other AP units, when it should be AP unit > switch > AP units 2&3. From what I understand,...

    You might be right. Depends on when you last looked, I guess. I've only ever seen both diagrams.

    By the way, I've always assumed that by "wifi backhaul" you simply mean wireless connectivity. Is...

    I'm curious about Note 1 (Please note that the main Deco unit will act as an NAT router by default.). Does this mean that Ethernet backhaul does not work/may cause problems in AP mode?

    I'm a little confused...are you running in AP mode or router mode? If you are running in AP mode, then this will work with the first switch connected to a router (which you seem to only indicate a...

    Here's my take:

    1. All of the units should be interchangeable, so any that you buy can be added to an existing network without problems.

    2. You can of course daisy chain nodes, but note that...

    I'm not 100% sure about this, but try blacklisting the device first, and then removing it from the blacklist. I think that once it is removed from the blacklist, it won't show up again until it...
