Hello,

I have the primary router (AX56U) connected directly via ethernet to the AI mesh router (AC68u). I have a switch connected to the AX56U which connect to a few other devices. I'm getting disconnects occasionally when the log shows this:

Jun 22 18:37:01 kernel: br0: port 6(wds1.0.2) received tcn bpdu
Jun 22 18:37:01 kernel: br0: topology change detected, sending tcn bpdu

Jun 22 23:07:10 kernel: br0: port 3(eth1) neighbor xxxx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx lost
Jun 22 23:07:10 kernel: br0: topology change detected, propagating

Do I need to connect the AI mesh to the switch to prevent this happening?

I believe it happens as each time devices roam between the main router and the AI mesh.

I also have Dual WAN but I don't think that is the issue here.

There is this eth1 lost constantly appearing in the logs with the propagating, this is a Sky Q box.

Jun 22 02:45:48 kernel: br0: port 3(eth1) neighbor 7f00.xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx lost

I think my current setup is:
Main Router - > AI Mesh (& Switch )- > Sky Q Mini
Main Router -> Switch (& AI Mesh) - > Sky Q main box

I'm going to try changing it to
Main Router -> Switch -> Sky Q Main box, AI Mesh -> Sky Q Mini (from AI Mesh)

AiMesh = router/AP + nodes = root node + remote nodes

Your AiMesh = AX56U + AC68U, yes?
