    Hi All,
    I have 3 routers, all hardwires, a RT3100 thats the main router, and two RT86U in AP mode.
    Ive had OK luck with AI mesh but the Baby monitor I have (Nanit) wasnt working well. Long story short, i factory reset the 2 AP nodes, and things have been well for the past couple days.
    But tonight I was putting the kid to bed and I heard my wyze cam click the IR filter, and the Nanit camera flashed. Huh. Weird.
    I checked the logs and i noticed this:

    Im trying to figure out whats going on, and what I can do to fix it.
    When the Nanit resets it turns on its little light and i think it woke up the boy last night at midnight. cant have that!!
    Checked online and tried to turn off a couple things but the Nanit is on 5Ghz and the Wyze is 2.4ghz.

    might have found my own issue, I had the one AP set as a different IP in the DHCP vs the hardcoded IP in the APs settings.

    Woken up by the LED? Light sleeper :)
    Black electrical tape is my go-to solution for LEDs that can't be turned off.

    No no. It’s a ‘nite light’ but they use it I guess to signal it’s got a connection. So it rises to full brightness and then dims each time it loses and regains connection. So yea it’ll wake him up. Not cool.
    It’s happening about every ten min and I don’t know why. I’ll reboot the camera in the morning but I lowered the power of the 2 APs and added it’s Mac to the deny Mac filter.
    But I continue to get these assoc/disassoc

    Use a sharpie to tone the light down and then put clear nail polish over it to keep the sharpie from being rubbed off. I had to do that to one of my cameras.

    Ok. This hasn’t happened for about a year. SUDDENLY this is happening when the camera is disassociating from WiFi, then reassociating.
    the led is a symptom. I need to fix the cause. Can we stop talk about tape and sharpies???

    I would be looking at the cameras failing than your Access Point/Mesh Network. If the Mesh was failing, you would see all of your devices exhibiting the same behavior. The sharpie is to tone down how bright the LEF is when the cameras reboot or go offline.

    Multiple devices seem to be going down.. look at the logs. The light should never come on because it shouldn’t be disconnected. In the past year it’s never done this before that I noticed.
    do you also put tape over the check engine light?

    mom actually circling back to this. i think the offer devices might be reauthenticating, but the camera is actually rebooting and that’s why it’s going off line. In touch with the camera vendor support but no word yet
