Dropping Internet Connection

Purchased the Orbi RBK50 to replace my r7000, had zero issues for a good month. Now, the past few days I have had my devices hard wired into the satellite lose Internet connection temporarily for a second and then resume.

What would cause this? The Xbox and laptop are hardwired into the satellite and both lost Internet temporarily a few times this weekend. However, my iPhone (wireless) and android shield (wired into the router) did not lose Internet connection. Should I set a static IP address? Remove any QOS (don't have any set up currently)? Establish QOS? I wish I could troubleshoot it further.

The router and satellite are on separate floors, however they are directly above one another so I figured that would be the issue if wireless was the problem, but it shouldn't since the two devices that are losing Internet connection are wired into the satellite.

There may be some disturbing factors.


The devices themselves are connected to the satallite, but the satellite is communicating with the router by wifi.


Have you run a wifi scanner to see what wifis are up and on which channels? Maybe some person has setup a wifi in the channels as the backhaul is using.
