Maestro lousy network connection via Ethernet and Wireless suddenly
Tonight, no matter which way I connect my Maestro it has decided to stick to very poor connectivity. I can't ping the Maestro so I move on, I ping the radio at <1ms, I test network speed and my laptop is getting 124MBps and my desktop is seeing 225MBps. Latency and speed is awesome so I move on to wireless, my wifes little laptop hit 28MBps and <1ms.
Wireless is not polluted by surrounding AP's and every time I use the Maestro I see full signal everywhere in the house and using Ethernet has not been an issue.
Tonight it flat out refuses to go above 3 yellow bars but keeps dropping to 1 red one.
So knowing it's not the network and having removed the battery and power from the Maestro, then letting it sit, then powering it up with a reward of 1 red bar I begin with the network. I reboot each part and power on the Maestro to see if it improves beginning with my Ethernet switch, result, still one red bar.
Reboot the Netgear R7000 Nighthawk that has worked smoothly with the Maestro since I received the Maestro, result 1 red bar.
I let the Maestro run for a while I see 3 yellow bars and that's where it goes between, a few minutes at 1 red, then a few minutes at 3 yellow if I take it upstairs it stays at 1 red bar. My laptop sees 95% signal, low latency and forget using the Maestro.
It was a rough day at work today so I'm powering down the works and trying again tomorrow, it's like the **** at work followed me home and told the Maestro to be a pain as well.
Some days you're the windshield and some days you're the bug, today was a bug day.
Awesome network speed (dual NIC Windows 10 PC going through the switch to my dual NIC Server).
