    Where can i find if and how often it reconnects?

    And thanx for the ax ideas.
    But my Mesh has no ax. So i can't disable this.
    I have 3 simple ac TPlink decos.
    when you have all the thing what you must do, then there is a possibility to look at it in you browser: you can do it to port 80 or 8080

    I have recent update my radio to version Firmware: 8.0.1-r16855, and i must say, the radio does his work much more better.

    in the readme file there is a subscription about the results off wlanpoke,

    I have started seeing the same problem

    Running LMS 8.2.0 - 1620025123 max2play on a Raspberry Pi4

    5 x SB Radios all running v7.7.3-r16676

    The Radio by my bed keeps losing connection - get a red icon, and a "Repair Network" briefly brings it back white but then it still can't connect to the local LMS and then quickly goes red again.
    Only a Radio reboot fixes it - and then it lasts about 10-15 minutes before it drops off again

    None of the other radios around the house have this issue, and I swapped radios over to test - the problem stays with the location rather than the Radio, so I guess there is some wifi issue in that particular spot.
    Which is odd, as the Radio has been by my bed and working for years up until the last few weeks

    Trying the wlanpoke patch now to see if that makes any difference

    Nearby neighbours?

    If yes, try putting a large metal saucepan lid between the radio and neighbour ...

    Well I live in a terrace, so yes - and the troublesome radio is by the wall, so a deflector shield could work!

    Meanwhile, having set up and run the wlanpoke on all 5 of my radios, the one that keeps dropping off was still connected this morning, so that's a good sign

    The stats page says

    I assume that the "Resets:7" is the sign that it dropped and was reconnected by wlanpoke 7 times overnight?
    All the others show plenty of gaps, but none have shown any resets

    Any shielding that reduces the interference could help. My radio in the center of the basement rarely drops out.

    You are correct: the report shows 0 quick and 7 full resets. A couple of your full resets are taking a while to restore the connection. This is likely because of the rather poor signal level of -70 dbm, perhaps causing the dhcp process to miss transmissions from the router. (Also, the report, 4065 seconds (~1.1 hours) after the last reset, showed a data rate of only 1 MB/s, which frequently occurs just before the connection fails.) Try to improve the signal level to better than -60 dBm. Even so, your radio's rate of 7 dropouts in ~17 hours is still quite modest, compared to others who experience 8-12 per hour. Here, increasing the signal level improves the recovery time, but does not affect the dropout rate very much.

    You might try the quick reset method enabled by default in the development branch. Otherwise, you could reduce your full reset threshold from 6 to, say, 2 or 3 (your gaps indicate just 13 single ping failures, and zero 2 ping failures, so a limit of 2 would speed things up.

    You may want to unsynchronize this radio to prevent music gaps in your other radios. I have the 4 most-affected radios here synchronized for testing, and they experience frequent several-second gaps.

    Thanks for the tips - I will continue to experiment.

    It's odd that this one player/location has a poor signal level as it's in the room directly above the router - so only a plaster ceiling and some wooden floorboards in the way. The connection is generally strong, but something is definitely happening to murder it from time to time

    Could it be that the WiFi signal is at its weakest directly above the router? If the antenna is vertical, the strongest signal may in a doughnut shape around it with a weaker signal above and below. If the antenna(s) are moveable then you could try an angle of, say, 45 degrees (or even lay them flat) and see if the signal strength received by the radio changes. If the antenna is inside the casing perhaps you could try tilting the whole router and see if that makes a difference.

    Incidentally, have upgraded one of my players to the latest SB Radio community firmware to test it out - is this supposed to improve stability of the network connections, or do I still need to install wlanpoke afterwards?

    wlanpoke make the radio much more stabeler, because he controlled the process and when it is needly he reset the process.

    You do still need to instal wlanpoke.
