    The "Community Firmware for Squeezebox Radio/Touch/Controller and LMS 8" thread is here: https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...ller-and-LMS-8

    The first post has a link to the CHANGELOG.
    Thanks, but I guess I still don’t understand what this thread is for then, if not for the the Community Firmware.

    (Funny, the same thing happened to my simple dedicated 'bgn' router purchased last year for the SBs: suddenly one day they wouldn't connect at all. Had to move the radios to the main house AP. Fortunately, after a few days, my environment got quiet and the problems were greatly reduced.)

    Looking at your log files, you have a second AP (...34:b1) with the same SSID on the same frequency with a signal level of -68 dBm. (BTW, very happy to see the signal levels in dBm instead of 0-255.).

    Your connected access point signal level just prior to failure at 2021-04-10T16:10:49 was -67 dBm (...34:30), which is very low, oddly, nearly the same as your other access point. There is a discrepancy between the scanned signal level of -63 and the current level of -67. The last scan was apparently well before the failures and not updated in the 24 seconds between the earliest (16:10:25) and latest (16:10:49) scan result entry. After the full reset, the scan results 15 nearby APs. Quite a difference from the just one shown prior to failure.

    Three disconnects in 20 minutes would be about 9 in an hour, not atypical for heavy interference environments. The recovery time of 49 seconds for the full reset is typical of somewhat weak signal conditions. Try to improve your signal levels.

    The more recent 0.8.3+ versions have improved reporting, and it is safe to re-enable the quick reset method, which may or may not improve your radio's performance.

    If you read the first post in this thread, you'll see that I created it to discuss development of the community firmware.

    The link provided by mrw is the official thread for the community firmware release.

    ok, but my original question (unanswered) was "Is wlanpoke now included as part of the CBRF?" (as there are a lot of posts here about wlanpoke)

    “No”, which was the first word given in my answer.

    Yes, you did. Don’t know how I missed it.

    I have one Radio (UE edition, the others are previous gen) out of 3 which sporadically has a very hard time connecting to the Wifi. Once it has connected, it is usually fine except for one single incident where it lost the connection. Is a behavior like this related to what is being discussed here?

    Well, you certainly are getting hammered. Eight full resets in 51 minutes, we might say typical for heavy interference. Your signal levels are excellent. No single ping losses.

    After some experimenting with wifi-6 here, using a 2.5 gHz wifi-6 client copying 15 GB, more or less completely disrupted 2 of the 7 radios here during the copy time, which wasn't particularly quick, not much if at all better than 802.11ac or n. (However, on the 5 gHz band, wifi-6 was awesome.) A full report of these tests will be made as time allows, but it seems that the wifi-6 is the culprit, and wifi-6 traffic makes it much, much worse.

    Some suggestions: disable wifi-6 on the 2.5 gHz band. Ask your neighbors to do the same. This may be a problem if their router won't let them disable wifi-6 on 2.5 gHz without doing so on 5 gHz.

    It might be helpful to scan your environment to identify wifi-6 routers and clients on 2.5 gHz. You can get routers from a windows notebook with a ($20 Intel AX200 implementation) wifi-6 adapter running netsh wlan show networks mode=bssid. Scanning for clients requires a promiscuous (monitor) mode wifi-6 adapter plus software. The AX200 driver does not supported this in Windows, but Linux might.

    You may benefit from enabling the quick reset function with the -Q 3 option to try the quick reset after the 3rd failed ping. The quick reset has been helpful here, although under some circumstances, the relief given is short lived, and multiple quick resets occur in succession only to be followed by a full reset. If it doesn't work at all, there is no harm done because the full reset comes along at its usual time anyway.

    If the quick reset is not working for you, because your signal is so strong, you could try to speed up the full reset to reduce the outage. You could advance its activation to work after the 2nd failed ping (aggressive) instead of the 6th, for example. With the default 6 trial, the script waits for 6*2.7=16 seconds or so before resetting. You might cut that down to 6.

    All of this points to the need for progress at the system driver level.

    Both neighbors are using it in a mesh system with only one SSID. During Corona they are heavy users with online schools and team meetings.
    So not an option i guess. I will try the settings according to your advice.
    Btw, a Inssider scan found 16 wifi different SSIDs (<-80dBm) and some "invisible" the curse of the city ;(
    so i tried the agressive way..
    /etc/wlanpoke/wlanpoke.sh -W slow -Wp 80 -Q 3 -F 2 -S 1 &
