MacBook Pro keeps disconnecting to wifi at random intervals

my model RBR50 keeps disconnecting when accessed with my macbook pro.It happens frequently but only with my laptop and ipad.Not with my other android devices.I tried factory resetting but the problem persists.Any other options?

Re: MacBook Pro keeps disconnecting to wifi at random intervals

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?

What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and 📡 satellite(s)? 30 feet or more is recommended in between RBR and RBS📡 to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected.

What channels are you using? Auto? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and 40 to 48 channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?

 

Try enabling Beamforming and MIMO(MIMO may or may not be needed) and WMM. Under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings

 

Do you have Armor or Circle enabled?
