Above is a diagram showing the network layout of my network with many unrelated parts removed. Both XT8's are running firmware version 3.0.0.4.386_25524.
My problem is that in the AiMesh page, most of the time the Mac Mini will show up as connected to the bedroom node, and then disappear to reappear under the dining room node, and then back to the bedroom node.
What should I do to solve this problem?
Tried rebooint all the nodes, but this problem always comes back.

Given it's wired, is it really a problem? I'd just ignore it... it's likely a firmware issue beyond your control.

I have a similar issue with a wired apple tv that shows up on the wrong node in the AiMesh page from time to time. I'm also using XT8s and assume it's a bug with the firmware
