Hi doc octopus
How are you observing the EX8000 trying to connect on ch149 ?
Is the EX8000 set to Europe wireless region ?
Thanks to the commitment of Netgear Guy that has taken charge and resolved my report on the connection problems between the EX8000 and Synology rt-2600ac by sending me a test firmware.
The problems previously reported have been solved.
I am hoping I can tap into your communal expertise and knowledge.
I have the EX8000 at an extender for my Nightwakh X10 (R9000) using a single SSID throughout the house. My issue is that when I connect to the EX8000, I usually have issues getting an internet connection. I would turn off my WiFi and then turn it back on (sometimes a few times). Usually that solves the issue. However, sometimes I will need to power down my iPhone completely, and upon boot-up, the WiFi is working fine. This issue is very frustrating. Any knowledge you can impart will be greatly appreciated.
