COVR connectivity question
« on: September 26, 2017, 07:47:16 AM »

I am experiencing an issue where my cell phone is not able to reach the internet. (Wifi connected with !, no internet)
This happens when I move away from the COVR-2600R and into range of the COVR-1300E. As soon as I move back towards the 2600, internet is restored.
The 2600 does see and updates the 1300E. There are no settings or list of connected devices on the 1300E.

What can I do to troubleshoot?

Link>Welcome!

  • What Hardware version is your router? Look at sticker under the router case.
  • Link>What Firmware version is currently loaded on the router and extender? Found on the routers and extenders web page under status.
  • What region are you located?

What phone and OS version are you using?

  • Any 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz cordless house phones or WiFi APs near by that maybe causing interferences?
  • Any other WiFi routers in the area that maybe causing interferences? Link> Use a WiFi Scanner to find out. How many?

Same thing still happens if you turn OFF the cordless phone?

Disable MU-MIMO and test as well. Mines disabled and has been working well.

Any status on this?

One thing I'm noticing with my COVR router running in AP mode, I seem to be seeing some disconnections at random times, seem about once a day I'm seeing disconnections with my 3 cameras an not my mac book pro lap top was disconnected. I could connect to the AP however said there was no internet. After power cycling the COVR router AP, I was able to connect to the COVR and got internet. I didn't reboot the main host router or ISP modem.  :-\

I did disable MU-MIMO and it seems to help a little. Not as many malfunctioning connections on my phone when connected to the extender.
Still happens from time to time. I did not turn off the cordless phone. I work from home and use the cordless headset during the day.

Are you both connecting to the 2.4GHz or 5Ghz band? Router and/or extender?

I've been having issues lately with Android 7.0 on my Galaxy S7 with 2 different DIR-890L routers and a friends nighthawk router where certain apps may not load and I usually have to turn off/on wireless to restore the connection or in some cases reboot my phone, or I get the internet icon with the ! for about 2 mins then it restores. I wonder if the last 1 or 2 Android updates is affecting the wireless connectivity.

I connect to 5GHz to my 890L and my TV is streaming hulu also on the 5GHz and the phone will lose Internet connectivity but the TV does not.

I will connect my COVR tonight to test finally (I know furry I have been saying that for 2 months) :)

All my cameras are 2.4Ghz supporting only. I noticed around 4am this morning all three reported disconnects from the COVR.
I noticed yesterday that I lost internet and wireless when my Mac Book pro however it's supporting 5ghz and is connected today. I was same location as yesterday.

I'm not using the extender at this time, just the router configured for AP mode, LAN to LAN connected to a main host router non-D-Link.

I'm going to switch out and put in the 890L and see if I notice similar issue with SC enabled.  Mimo is disabled on the COVR router.

Things to look for -

When your phone disconnects, do other devices on the same wireless band disconnect too?

Are there certain apps that you run/are using when the connection drops? For me it is usually Instagram.

If you do not use Wi-Fi on your phone, do other devices disconnect?

Furry, can you check your modem log for your 4am disconnect and see if the modem rebooted?

No modem rebooted. Last entry is:
Wed Nov 01 17:57:37 2017      Notice (6)     TLV-11 - unrecognized OID;CM-MAC=

I did notice that the main host router still had connection since one that works from home is wired to that router and didn't complain about anything while the COVR router was rebooted after it's problem of service yesterday. Once the COVR was rebooted, all as good until something this 4am morning.  ::)

I've put the 890L online with v1.20 FW, SC enabled is same spot as the COVR was.

I think that means your phone reconnected to the 1300 because the 2600 was too far. If the internet is down then that means the link between the 2600 and 1300 is disconnected or intermittent.

Verify signal strength when phone is near the 1300. Connect a computer directly wired to the 1300 and test the connection to the internet or 2600.

Is the 1300 and 2600 wired or wireless bridged? Distance? If wireless any walls in between or obstacle?

I am experiencing an issue where my cell phone is not able to reach the internet. (Wifi connected with !, no internet)
This happens when I move away from the COVR-2600R and into range of the COVR-1300E. As soon as I move back towards the 2600, internet is restored.
The 2600 does see and updates the 1300E. There are no settings or list of connected devices on the 1300E.

What can I do to troubleshoot?

FurryNutz, what do you mean by disconnected? Red light? or no internet?

I was connected to the COVR with a mac book, saw no wireless connection signal on the Mac, the little wifi icon was greyed out. I turned off the wifi radio on the Mac and then back on. It seemed to connect back to the COVR however I got a exclamation icon over the wifi icon telling me it had no Internet access. I then rebooted the COVR AP only and after it came back online, I got internet access thru the COVR AP.

Can this be easily replicated with a different device?

Well have noticed that all 3 of my cameras disconnected this morning at 4am. I have noticed that my iPhone was also not getting internet at the same time when the Mac wasn't. Iphone 6sP iOS 11.0.3.
