As its hard wired it should not be a issue, have you tried to put the IP address of the 3100SN outside the DHCP range to ensure no IP conflicts.

Also have you tried changing the channel on the 3100SN so it does not conflict with the 2.4ghz channel on the 8900AX.

Finally when you fail to connect to the 3100SN (whirly wheels) can you connect to the IP address of the 3100SN from a wired device connected to the 8900AX (so we can check the connectivity between the 3100SN and 8900AX)
Hi BF,
3100 SN is set outside the DHCP range of the 8900 - 1.253 8900 is 1.254 DHCP is up to 200
both on different channels (1 & 13)
Yes, can log into 3100SN UI from iMac hardwired to 8900

In the early days, I had a compatibility issue with the 3100 and an iPad 4 that kept losing my Sonos speakers. when we swapped to iPad Air 2's, the issue stopped.

We just upgraded to 2018 iPad Pro's and its those that have trouble. I wonder if its old tech versus new tech. The Pro's would take simultaneous dual band wifi.

All that said, everything was stable before we updated the f/w

Be interested to know your thoughts

regards
PD
UPDATE

Yesterday, my network just lost the plot. Neither wireless AP was talking to the router and even an iPad next to the router was struggling.

I downgraded back to d27 and everything is talking again. It was fully stable overnight too.
Stick to the current fw for now, if you do upgrade again to the latest d36, please set the syslog to debugging and if the issue occurs again send me a copy of your system log after the issue has occurred, so can investigate,

OK will do
it's all behaving for now though the iPad pro is losing the 3100SN from time to time
that might just be an IOS12/iPad pro thing

Further update.

Talktalk sent me a new router with new contract (better deal). I’ve retired the 3100SN and replaced it with the Sagem 5364 they sent. I’m not using it as a router, just a wireless AP and it’s working really well. Probably because it’s giving 5ghz WiFi in the lounge. iPad pros working much quicker now.

I have had many problems over the years with the WiFi on the BiPAC 8900AX-2400 from passwords to devices drooping connection on both bands but the 2.4g band is the less problematic, the 5.8g as never liked Apple products, and some makes of WiFi radios drop from 2.4g so about 2 months ago I decided to switch off the WiFi and use some cheap Japanese routers to run 2.4 and 5.8ghz and it has been wonderful no problems at all, I'm sure the problems will be sorted out eventually, the router and connection is solid cant praise it more just a shame the stupid logout was introduced not needed and cause problems at times.

Just checking, is d36 still the latest?

I have it running stable here with wifi off though as I'm using Google Wifi pucks via ethernet to run a wireless mesh network.

Thanks! Does this mean it's ready and you just need to upload it, or are you still testing a while longer before you upload it for us? Just wondering whether we're talking hours or days or weeks? :D
