Another frustrating morning with COVR here. When I first got up today, I logged on with my work laptop and checked in on my phone just fine. When the kids tried to log on for school with their Chromebooks (less than 10 active devices on the network in total, all devices that had previously joined the network), the network went down. The B point seemed to crashóblinking orange. The A point couldnít be joined by any devices, though the color was white and it was broadcasting its SSID.

I unpowered A, the Ethernet switch, and B, and then restarted the fiber modem, then A, the switch, and B. Now everything is back up and running, but itís really frustrating to have the system keel over every other week. Sometimes it happens at the start of day. (It often takes the laptop several minutes to connect, and itís using Ethernet connected to point B.) And sometimes it happens at the end of the workday. I donít know if itís the complexity of a two-point system or D-Linkís build quality or software, but the reliability of this system is really disappointing. Iím about ready to plug my old ASUS N-66U back in. It would run for months without needing a restart. I was trying to buy a router, but it seems Iíve bought a pet instead.

is this version stable for AP mode or only router mode? also, I have a problem where I have three instances of the signal one locked signal, another guest one, and one open signal, so what's the problem this time.
my region is EMEA and the support of this region is really trash.
my latest FW is 1.05
Edit: I have three instances of each network from each point for example I'm having from point A one locked Network X, another guest one, and one open Network X with no password. same for point B, this is really frustrating.

When you first update FW, update the B points first, then update the A point lastly. Factory reset the ALL points and setup from scratch. I would not enabled Guest Network just yet.
After the A point is setup first and up and running, then turn on one B point at a time. Make sure the 1st B point is synced completely with the A Point and shows having the same SSID name and PW and placed it its remote location. Then turn on the other B point and do the same. Sync both B point while in same room or near the A Point. After both B points are fully synced, place in remote locations.

I would troubleshoot your odd problems with turning OFF the 2nd B point and just run the A point and 1 B point to help narrow down whats going on.

Try v1.06 FW  by using the mentioned FW update process.

An yes, this FW works in AP Mode as well. I have mine set up in AP mode and B point Ethernet connected  behind 3 switches. DGS series.

An earlier problem I found was resolved and not related to the COVR system.

Update: yesterday I took a short way and returned the cover to router mode while replacing my DHCP server on the cover system with another on my main Mikrotik, although my region is EMEA and since the support in this region is really trash (their website doesn't function correctly for crying out loud) I used the 1.06B03 FW and surprisingly it's working like charm, the Guest networks, and the open networks are now off not seen even on the wifi graph (i don't know if this is because I changed the Operation of the system or not), since yesterday it didn't crash, it didn't drop the connection, or disconnected the slave from the Masterpoint A.
so Overall I'm satisfied with this FW, till now at least.

Thank you for letting us know. I Think v1.06 is the best FW to date. AP mode has been stable for me.

I wish they would allow to return to router mode from bridge mode with out having to setup from scratch.  :-\

I've asked multiple times about switching back to router mode from AP but not getting any kind of answer.   ::)

Silence usually means NO.

Oh are we good on the other issue (guest network broadcasting)? I need to close it out.

Really?
What are the exact steps?

I wondering if not using styles like from years ago to unhide some web page content works.
IF thats the case, should be easy for D-Link to just add this back in for normal web page selection.  ::)

Please help. I installed version 1.06, but unfortunately after a while the speed decreases to the second point by half. I want to connect the two points with internet cable. Is my version ok for a good speed?

What is the Mfr and model# of the ethernet switch in the configuration?

I solved the problem by connecting the two points with the internet cable.  The wi-fi connection between them has a problem but I don't bother anymore
