Google products causing intermittent wifi drops
Anyone experiencing this? I have 3 Chromecast and a Google home, and am finding it hard to tell if it's these or something else.
No problems with eero and those google products. On other mesh systems like Velop and Orbi, there are huge problems. Eero seems to have dealt with it already.
Just goes to show that the eero people had the foresight of preventing / being proactive for these kinds of problems before they bumped into them, unlike Orbi, Velop etc. who are more into a reactive/damage control mode at the moment.
This (repeated rebooting) of the Orbi was why I don't have one now. I assume they are going to get this handled at some point, but I was at the end of my return window, and family was not happy losing wi-fi repeatedly every day. :(
I have/had 4 Orbis. I have now dumped them since NetGear seams unable to fixed the disconnect problem. I tried every suggestion even those that sounded like "magic" to no avail. I'd rather throw the Orbis away, which I did, than throw everything else away. What an expensive mistake. Thank goodness for eero :-)
