Orbi - DFS Radar detected - no internet for 8 minutes

Hello - I have seen many posts about Orbis dropping their connection, so apologies if in my newbie enthusiasm I am duplicating a known problem. I have the RBK50 pair of Router and Satellite. I am running firmware V2.0.0.72. The RBR50 is in AP mode since it is connected to a Swisscom router/modem (I live in Switzerland). I regularly get interruptions on the network, and there seem to be more since the latest firmware upgrade. This morning I had more time to investigate, and found the following in the log

 

[Internet connected] IP address: 192.168.1.107, Monday, September 18, 2017 09:48:25
[Internet disconnected] Monday, September 18, 2017 09:48:06
[DFS radar]Changing to DFS channel 120, Monday, September 18, 2017 09:41:53
[DFS radar]Radar found on channel 108, Monday, September 18, 2017 09:41:50
 
it seems to match the 10 minutes or so when nothing was working in the house
 
I am guessing that this is the backhaul link between the satellite and router since the 5Ghz channel in use for normal connections is channel 36
 
Anybody else seen this? Is there a way to configure the backhaul link to not use DFS channels?

Re: Orbi - DFS Radar detected - no internet for 8 minutes

I am interested in this as well as I get internet drops on my satellite. The satellite appears online still but there is no connection to the internet. If I switch to the router I have internet access.

I am on V2.0.0.72

What log do you see this on? Did you have to turn on Debug log to get these, because I don't see any of those messages in my router log?

This may needed be a cause of the dropouts some people are experiencing.

Intersting, I am not seeing any of this. I suspect you have some funky things going on in the airspace around your place or that Orbi is defective.

Yes, a wireless home alarm system.
