I’ve got three different networks that are having problems with 2.4Ghz clients. They all use a slightly different unifi product line, which makes me think I might be configuring something wrong.
Network 1: Mix of Unifi WAPs (LR, AC, U6, U6-Lites)
Network 2: Only U6-Lites
Network 3: UDM
The devices that are having trouble connecting vary from thermostats, smart watches (Apple and Fitbit) and DirectTV receivers. The only common thing between them is that they are trying to connect on 2.4Ghz.
I accidentally discovered that rebooting the host AP will allow the client to temporarily connect, at which point it later drops connection and constantly toggles connection state every few seconds. I’ve even created a dedicated 2.4Ghz network just to verify the issue and they do the same thing on it, as well.
Has anyone else seen this? How would I even begin to diagnose it? I’m stumped.
Suggestions are appreciated!
