About 20 feet and all updated to 1.05 (which I couldn't do via app, had to do via browser). However, having had the issue when I [finally] got them all upgraded and communicating, and still having the same issue the next morning, they no longer seem to be dropping the signal. Very confusing because nothing in the setup has changed. I'm hoping they remain this way!

20 feet maybe too close and the wifi signal overlap is causing problems. Try 30 feet.

Testing with the DLink switch still has issues, although they are less then before. I am running FW 1.06 from ftp://ftp.dlink.ca/PRODUCTS/COVR-C1203/COVR-C1200_REVA_FIRMWARE_1.06.BIN on the suggestion of a D-Link support staff member. I am testing right now with only 2 nodes "A" and 1x "B" node placed ~50feet apart on opposite sides of the house. I still see on occasion that the B node will flash orange and any wifi devices connected to it will hang and not communicate with outside internet. I have not been able to test with connecting to a local device, or with a ethernet device on the B node. The WebUI suggests that the B node is using ethernet because if I reset the device and use wifi backhaul I get orange signal strength. If I reset again and use ethernet I get full green bars on the signal strength.

Might ask support people that if this doesn't clear up, might ask for an RMA...

I take it 1.06 is still in beta?  Overall it sounds like it has been stable for you?  Does anyone know what it fixes and what the release timeline is?

Try the new 1.07 version:

http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=74759.0

This just got pushed out to my network.  Previously the app, the web interface, and D-Link's support page all showed 1.05 as the current version.  I checked with tech support earlier today, who mentioned that 1.07 was about to pushed and that the web site had been missed in terms of getting updated with the new version info.  Installing 1.07 as we speak...

Since updating to 1.07 my connectivity while using wired backhaul seems to have regressed.  Having several drop-outs across two iPhones and a Google Home unit.  I've reverted to wireless backhaul for the time being.  I may try and pick up a DGS-108 and see if that makes a difference or solves the problem...

Let us know how it goes.

I'll be connecting mine via ethernet in the next couple of days or this weekend.

 Will do, I ordered a DGS-108 last night.  Let me know how it goes for you.

When I am seeing drop outs, it is not necessarily a full-on drop out.   As in, the main newsfeed in the Facebook app will refresh no problem, but when you go to expand out comments they sometimes wonít load. Similar with Instagram. Other apps sometimes are unaffected.  And itís intermittent. Will be interesting to see if the different switch fixes things.

Ya saw similar issues when I first had the 1203 online. Be in bed strolling thru FB and then all of a sudden would get to the bottom and nothing else would come up. Hoping this new FW will have fixed this as well.

Ok, just completed getting the 1203 online. Wire connected remotes. Will let it run and see how it goes.  ;)

Last Friday I installed the DGS-108 switch that D-Link support recommended I use in conjunction with my COVR-1203 units (who are all running v1.07 of the firmware), but I'm still getting random drop-outs while using wired backhaul.

The drop-outs happen over wi-fi only, and only seem to affect certain apps (or ports?).  For instance, last night neither my wife nor I could get our Facebook feeds to refresh, but when I tried accessing Facebook on my laptop (which was connected via ethernet), the site responded fine.  So it wasn't a Facebook issue, nor was it a global issue with the LAN in my house.  It was a problem only with devices connected via wi-fi.  Rebooting the COVR system solved the problem, as killing and re-launching the Facebook app (iOS) did not initially restore connectivity.

This morning I noticed a drop-out while on Facebook on my phone.  I checked a few other apps at the same time.  Instagram was also not responding, but Safari was, as were a few other apps that I tried.  A few got hung up though.  So it is not affecting all connectivity.  Is it possible these drop-outs are occurring over a range of ports for some reason?

I was able to regain connectivity by going into and out of Airplane Mode, which cycled the wifi radio.

My Google Home also needed to be rebooted this morning because it had lost connectivity.  This also only happens when I'm using wired backhaul.  I never have to reboot it when using wireless backhaul.

Thoughts?  I think I'll get in touch with D-Link tech support again.

I presume the system has had a factory reset performed and setup from scratch since v1.07 was applied?
Yes I would ask for an RMA. If they send you one, request that it comes already loaded with v1.07...

Only thing I've noticed on mine is that some mobile apps like wikipedia don't seem to get all the data traffic from the Internet completely or fully. I haven't had any issues with wifi drop outs though. Devices are getting Internet data. I need to factory reset and setup from scratch to see if this helps with getting better data traffic to apps.
