I ran a 6300 for years and was always full Ethernet signal.
Now have 6600 on same computer and signal varies often and sometimes gets 1 red bar and disconnects.
Tried replacing all cables and everything else, its not a RF issue, does when only receiving too.
Does the 6600 require more computer power then a 6300?
Ive tried no dax and seems to make no difference.

I never lost connection with the radio but its a little un-nerving when running 1500 watts remotely. This status fluctuation is the same whether or not I am on SmartLink or a local VPN connection. Like others I have exchanged practically the entire station, including cables, routers, and radios, at both ends of the Link and there is NO difference I have made whatsoever to the Flex Ethernet indicator.
Right now the Ethernet connection is indicating all green... without doing a thing, and no-one or nothing else connected to the Routers on either end, it will soon be red or yellow bars for a while.
Even had the ISP people monitoring their equipment for anomalies and so far no correlation is to be found.
these issues get resolved soon. VERY soon. I know Flex is aware of the problem, however maybe they do not realize how many of us are affected by this. Hopefully all concerned will open tickets about random packet sizes or fragmented packets as it relates to "Jumbo packets"
Since doing this, I have had no problems with ssdr disconnects.
I noticed that even though when I am connected directly to the radio (6600M) via Ethernet router the network status bars will sometimes turn yellow and go to 2 to 3 bars for a few seconds then go to full bars. No packets are lost and max RTT is only 150ms.
Another thing I noticed is when I connect over WIFI although I don't loose my connection with SmartSDR the network status will go from Red to Yellow to green and sometimes back to red.
When I was running my 6500 with version 1.x Never had any of these issues.Just though I would share my experience.
For a Windows 10 computer, right click on the windows button at the bottom left of your computer and click on Device Manager. Look for Network adapters and right click on the device that controls your ethernet port. On my computer its Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller. Choose Properties in the pop up menu and select the Power Management tab. Uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power and click OK.

In that configuration SSDR shows solid 5 green bars almost all the time. This is not a perfect solution because I don't have SmartLink port forwarding set up right yet through the two routers. However it does suggest to me that the TP-Link router is better able to handle the communication to the radio on my LAN.
