Google products causing intermittent wifi drops

https://9to5google.com/2018/01/15/google-chromecast-home-wifi-outage/

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.

    Eero developer on Reddit says they control the issue already.

    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.

      cotedan87 Their developer commented they prevented the "at-fault" behavior by default.  They didn't specifically target this issue, but rather followed best practices that prevented it, unlike Orbi et. al.

    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 :-)

      tchester@gmail.com  Exactly why I did too... I did sell mine and recover about 2/3's of my investment.
